Complete "D" Singles, vol 3
(Bear Family BCD-15.834-1 Ger-00 475:-)

Pappy Daily's 'D' Records is one of the great untold stories in hillbilly, rockabilly, and Texas dancehall music. The four CDs in this -- the third volume in the complete 'D' retrospective -- covers the period from October 1959 to August 1960. The focus is squarely on the fabulous east Texas honky tonk sound, and this set includes such 'D' classics as Claude Gray's 'Family Bible' (a Willie Nelson-penned Top 10 country hit), Hardrock Gunter's 'Jumpin' Mule', Bill Mack's 'John's Back In Town' (written by and featuring Waylon Jennings), and early Willie Nelson, featuring unissued takes of 'Night Life' and 'Rainy Day Blues'.

4-CD Box set with a 52 page booklet.
