Adams, Kay - Wheels and Tears
(Tower ST-5033 US-66 EX 275:-)

The trucking craze depicted a man's world in which women typically fell into supporting roles or provided comic relief. With "Little Pink Mack" in 1966, Kay Adams became the first woman to take the wheel of a big rig and drive it into country music's Top 40. Recorded with country music veteran Cliffie Stone, "Little Pink Mack" presents listeners with a selection of trucking songs and country favorites on which Adams' sassy singing resembles Loretta Lynn.

Original US pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Collins, Tommy - Dynamic
(Columbia CS-9310 US-66 NM 300:-)

Tommy Collins was one of the first country musicians to establish a distinctive Bakersfield, CA, sound. During the course of the '50s, he released a series of hit singles that lightened up the tone of honky tonk with bouncing backbeats, novelty lyrics, and electric guitars. Collins explored a more serious side with his ballads, yet they continued to sound slightly different than his peers -- though they weren't as polished as the countrypolitan coming out of Nashville, they didn't have the grit of honky tonk.
Harris, Emmylou - Live with James Burton
(Not on Label ‎– EH1 300:- )

One of the best, if not the best, voices of modern Country music in her early years accompanied by one of the finest guitarists in his style. This album contains a live recording from 1976 on which Emmylou looks back to the Gram Parsons days (listen to the great version of the Flying Burrito Brothers' "Sin City") and brings a great compilation of the best songs from her first albums.

Oxford, Vernon - Woman. let me sing You a Song
(RCA Victor LPM-3704 US-67 EX 275:-)

Vernon Oxford was a hard honky tonk singer with unlucky timing, coming up during an era when traditional country simply wasn't counting for much on the charts.

He recorded one album for RCA before being dropped by the label. He recorded briefly for the smaller Stop label but caught a break when British audiences discovered him as a fine traditional-style artist who'd slipped through the cracks of American popular taste.

Robbins, Marty - Marty after Midnight
(Columbia CS-8601 US-62 EX 500:-)

It's arguable that no country singer ever came closer to straight jazz than Robbins. Released in 1962, this album of mostly jazz standards is somewhat of an anomaly in his catalog, jazz being one of the few styles he would dabble in but never fully embrace. It is part of his remarkably diverse late-'50s/early-'60s period, in which he recorded Hawaiian music, cowboy songs, honky tonk, and pop covers, all within a five-year span. Robbins was known to dive headlong into a style, and that's certainly true here — there's not a shred of country anywhere on this album, save for an ever-present Nashville chorus and a slightly rockabilly version of "On the Sunny Side of the Street."
Rodgers, Jimmie - My Time ain't Long
(RCA Victor LPM-2865 US-64 sos EX 400:-)

His brass plaque in the Country Music Hall of Fame reads, "Jimmie Rodgers' name stands foremost in the country music field as the man who started it all." This is a fair assessment. The "Singing Brakeman" and the "Mississippi Blue Yodeler," whose six-year career was cut short by tuberculosis, became the first nationally known star of country music and the direct influence of many later performers, from Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, and Hank Williams to Lefty Frizzell and Merle Haggard. Rodgers sang about rounders and gamblers, bounders and ramblers -- and he knew what he sang about.
Williams, Hank - 14 Greatest Hits, vol 2
(MGM E-4040 US-62 EX 275:-)

Hiram King Williams is the father of contemporary country music. He was a superstar by the age of 25; he was dead at the age of 29. In those four short years, he established the rules for all the country performers who followed him and wrote a body of songs that became popular classics. He lived a life as troubled and reckless as that depicted in his songs.
