5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Ernest's music, 25 May 2005

Ernest Tubb was one of the earliest superstars of country music. Unlike his friend Red Foley whose voice had pop crossover appeal, Ernest had a voice that was pure country, yet Ernest had hits in the American pop charts because the songs were of such great quality.

This compilation contains some of the best of his Decca recordings, although a single CD cannot possibly be comprehensive as Ernest was a major country star from the forties to the sixties.

Here you will find some of the songs for which Ernest is best remembered including Walking the floor over you, Soldier's last letter, Filipino baby, Let's say goodbye like we said hello, Have you ever been lonely have you ever been blue, Slipping around, Blue Christmas, Waltz across Texas and I love you because.

Ernest also recorded plenty of duets, especially with Rod Foley. Among their duet hits were Goodnight Irene and Tennessee border #2. Ernest also recorded two songs with the Andrews sisters (I'm biting my fingernails and thinking of you, Don't rob another man's castle), of which the first is featured here. In the sixties, Ernest recorded three duet albums with Loretta Lynn, represented here by Mr and Mrs Used to be.

More comprehensive collections of Ernest's music are available but if you just want a single CD, this will suit you ideally as it contains all the essentials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sign of the times, 23 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is just very good. You either love them or hate them, but it's so quintisestical (?) of that era. Nice cleanly dressed up bands singing studio music of sad songs. From the time before Nashville got rocked by the Outlaws and the like. I don't think there is one happy song amongst them, but the music and rythm belies it all. But the songs are superb. Reminds me of let's sing a sad song (to be happy). It's funny, it's good, it's old-fashisioned country from a long time ago. Listen to it and enjoy it! For me it has 5 stars all the way.
