This was a bit of a slow burner for me. I had it for quite a while and just played it occasionally, thought it was just alright - then something clicked and now I love it!

If you like music from the late 1950's & early 1960's,or if you are a country music fan then this album is definitely for you. I knew of 'Sea of Heartbreak' but honestly didn't know the man wrote and recorded so many well known songs. 'A Legend In My Time ' is my favourite I think. Johnny Cash recorded it for one of his later albums. 'Just One Time' was recorded by Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins for their 'Neck & Neck' album, and I honestly didn't know he wrote 'Too Soon To Know, which was a hit for Roy Orbison in the 1960's. The quality and sound of the recordings is excellent and I can't recommend this album too highly.

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. POLLOCK TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Sept. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Donald Eugene "Don" Gibson (1928 - 2003), better known as Don Gibson country songwriter/singer and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, enjoyed a string of hits from 1957 through to the Seventies with SWEET DREAMS, I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU, OH LONESOME ME, BLUE BLUE DAY and many more of his songs reaching the US Top 100 Charts.

This excellent two-disc anthology rounds up forty-six songs originally released as singles between the years 1956-1962 and all except a dozen are Gibson's self-penned numbers with the notes stating no less than twenty-two were hits and perhaps proving he was the best vocal purveyor to feed off their strengths. That alone would have consolidated his and their country reputation but many were purloined not only by other country singers but also reinterpreted by pop vocalists Ray Charles, Eydie Gorme etc; therefore widening their scope and familiarity in the way self-written compositions did for Hank Williams.

Jasmine's remastering makes this two-disc set a definite "must have" for those who prefer the basics of country music compiled into meaningful anthologies such as this, especially as many of the songs later became better-known when chosen by pop artistes so now bear even more familiarity in this referral back to their originator.

Great Country Music of the Late Fifties and Early Sixties 27 Dec. 2013
By Paul Moreau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The first twenty-two tracks on the first CD are monophonic and the rest of the tracks are stereo. However, more than the difference between mono and stereo is clearly heard. There is a significant difference in the microphones used for the mono recordings and that used for the stereo recordings.

The mono tracks used a microphone that emphasised the upper frequencies in Don's voice, providing a rather sharp sounding voice. The microphone used for the stereo tracks provided a much more mellow tone and are much more pleasing to the ear.

A substantial number of the songs on this set should be very familiar to those who listened to the country music of the late fifties and early sixties. After listening to the tracks recorded in stereo, I can only regret that Don gave up his performing career to concentrate on song writing.

When examining the credits for many songs performed by many of the top recording stars in the sixties and later, it was surprising just how many times one saw Don Gibson's name as the song writer.

The audio quality of this set is extremely good. There is no noise or distortion on any of these tracks.

Highly recommended to those who enjoyed the country music of the late fifties and early sixties.

A true country singer-songwriter gets his due. 2 Aug. 2014
By Stuart Hendin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This two disc set is an excellent representation of the classic singer-songwriter Don Gibson. The first two years of this set (1956-57) are characterized by standard classic country subject matter such as lost love, regret, and heartbreak. The accompaniment is standard for the time (trebely lead guitar, some pedal steel, and some fiddle). The vocals are crisp and heartfelt. Beginning with "Oh Lonesome Me" in 1958 and continuing into the early 60's, Gibson took a turn to a more pop sounding approach. Gone are the fiddles and pedal steel, replaced by a less piercing lead guitar and prominent piano. The vocals are less twangy.

What sets Gibson apart from the similar artists of his day is his amazing songwriting. No country artist, with the exception of Hank Williams, has left such a songwriting legacy for succeeding generations to emulate by recording Gibson's songs. One need look no further than "Sweet Dreams", "Oh Lonesome Me", "I Can't Stop Loving You", and "Sea of Heartbreak" to prove this point. Artists as divergent as Neil Young, Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, the Beau Brummels, and the Searchers have recorded these classic songs, all included in this set by the originating artist.

The mixing and re-mastering are excellent but the liner notes are not extensive though informative. A great buy for the price.
