Product Description

Product Description

2Cd set of classic rare country. Plantation Records was launched in 1968 by Shelby Singleton, the entrepreneurial former head of Mercury and Smash Records, and a celebrated record industry maverick. Essentially a specialist Country label, with a strong emphasis on novelty and idiosyncratic recordings, Plantation is remembered primarily for its biggest hit, Jeannie C. Riley's multi-million selling 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', which topped both the U.S. Pop and Country charts. The label registered a further three dozen or so chart entries, by artists like David Wilkins, Dee Mullins, Linda Martell, Sleepy LaBeef, John Wesley Ryles, Rita Remington, Webb Pierce, Bobby Hood and Patti Page, whilst non-charting artists included Ray Pillow, Rex Allen Jr, Jimmie Dale & The Flatlanders, Lois Ann Struck, Hank Locklin, Gordon Terry, Jimmy C. Newman, Barbara Eden, Roy Drusky and Leroy Van Dyke. 2CD overview of the specialist Country label active between 1968 and the early 80s. 50-tracks presenting the very best of Plantation's singles output, and includes 23 US Country hits. Features the label's four million-sellers: Jeannie C. Riley's sassy 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', Harlow Wilcox's guitar instro 'Groovy Grubworm', C-Company featuring Terry Nelson's controversial 'Battle Hymn Of Lt. Calley' and Rod Hart's bizarre gay truckers' anthem 'C.B. Savage'. Very little of this material has previously been reissued, in any format, and many of these sides make their CD debuts on this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quirky Collection 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Plantation Records was one of those record labels that seems to be better known for it's slightly left-field releases than for any particular successful huge hits (apart from a certain song by Jeannie C Riley!).

This collection is subtitled "The Plantation Records Story 1968-1981" and features 50 tracks, mostly country with a smattering of more poppy releases (though still with a country tinge), more or less in date order. The big success of early years of the label was the aforementioned Ms Riley and the Tom T Hall penned, pop and country no. 1 "Harper Valley PTA". This remains a great track, even if the alledged sins of Mrs Johnson, and those of the PTA members, seem a bit tame by today's standards! There are another four Riley tracks included but none matched the success (or the sheer class) of that first song.

As ever with these types of compilations, it's a bit of a mixed bag. But in this case it throws up a couple of very interesting new (to me at least) names worthy of further investigation. There are three tracks by a guy called Dee Mullins: he had a great voice, not unlike early Willie Nelson, and one of the song featured, "Guilt Box", is possibly my favourite on the whole 2CD set!

Then there are three songs by Linda Martell. The booklet included with the set describes Ms Martell as "perhaps the most important artist to record for Plantation" and that she was "not only the very first black woman to make the country charts but also the first black woman to appear on the Grand Ole Opry". This might all be true but the main reason I mention her is that her tracks featured here are all excellent, with a fantastic steel guitar and fiddle lead sound (and in fact lead to be quickly downloading her one and only album!).

4.0 out of 5 stars hard to find obscure country songs from the sixtys and 70's 3 Feb 2014
By ronald henley - Published on Amazon.com

i am giving this collection a four star rating,mainly because most of them [not all ] have never been issued on cd before, since there original 45 rpm record release. many of these songs made the country top 40. and i remember hearing them back in the late 60's &70's. lots of novelty songs, there are a few clunker's that were never released or at least never charted. but most of whats here is well worth the price. this collection is not recomended for those who's idea of country music is what you hear on radio today.
