Format: Audio CD
Now here's an excellent package from Jasmine. Four of Ernest Tubbs 1950's Decca albums on this 2-CD set. Excellent artist that he was, Ernest Tubb didn't really grasp the concept of the LP as well as some of his contempories who understood instinctively that they could theme albums, not just use an LP for shipping more product in one sale. These albums show the learning process, and by the time we get to The Importance Of Being Ernest (1959), Ernest is well positioned for the 1960s, and his albums are lovely packages.
Apart from that album, the set comprises Ernest Tubb Favourites (1956), Red and Ernie (1954), and The Daddy Of 'Em All (1957), "Favourites" comprises 12 previously released sides from the 1940's, but Red and Ernie is a classic. The two principals blend their voices wonderfully, and the material is superb, a lovely honky tonk sound and it includes the Cindy Walker penned track, Don't Be Ashamed Of Your Age, which they perform with a smile. Red Foley has surely never put his name to a better album.
The Daddy Of 'Em All is actually the first true album Ernest Tubb made, using a bunch of songs that he had either written and never recorded, or hadn't been able to record. Anyway, the end result is worth the wait. Ernest Tubb has a wonderful honky tonk sound, and in 1957 this was a much played album. The Importance Of Being Ernest sees Ernest Tubb recording new material on the first side, tracks 37 to 42 here, whilst the last tracks are some of his favourites getting a polished treatment. The great thing about these albums is the use of Ernest Tubbs Texas Troubadours on the recordings.

Thoroughly enjoyable and value for money cd with some great solo performances and an especially entertaining album of duets with Red Foley.However,my cd1 is faulty so get it and play immediately-mine may be a rogue or it could be more widespread.
