All Star Country - Harmony Records Compilation
I'm uploading this today because I'm listening it this morning. I love this record. There are no real surprises here, just a really solid, if maybe too short, collection of good stuff.
I got this when I was working at a coffee shop where a local record collector/dealer had dropped off a few crates of three dollar records for us to sell. I pulled this one out because it has a Lefty Frizzell song on it that I had heard bu did not own. I think that first night, I played this record for probably three hours straight. It may have been that Norma Jean song that hooked me.
Whatever it was (is), this remains my favorite country compilation. It's a good record for a Sunday morning, which is why I'm uploading it now, but it works pretty much any time. This is really good stuff.
And you should totally click on the link in the second paragraph and buy some records from Kurt. I say without hesitation that he has lots of stuff you want.
