    Well that's a relief. I'd still rather the audiobook be sold separately, but good to know we're not getting fleeced.

    I know it's download and all that but you can get that from Qobuz for less than a tenner!

    I've got that Bronco Buster CD - good stuff. I know his RCA stuff went away from pure country but there's still some great songs, I love these two from the 12 track best of.

    Just to keep it remotely Bear I've got the Tennessee Plowboy box which is a fine set of music.

    @melstapler submitted this for his free Lefty reissue, but Bear Family denied his request because there seems to have been a prior relationship.

    Been giving the BF disc of Donny Young/Johnny Paycheck a spin today, if you want hard core honky tonk it doesn't get much better than this, you can hear Paycheck getting his voice together from sounding so young to developing the vocal style we all know and love. Come on Bear goddamit where's our box set?

    I found this Archive photo of The Killer fighting The Grizzly Bear, but I do not think the guys at Bear Family will accept it for a free Lefty box upgrade.

    They did not question whether The Grizzly Bear was his wife in a costume, but disqualified The Killer because he lost the match and was later accused of throwing the fight.

    A later follow-up showed that The Killer denied throwing the fight in court, and the judge dismissed the case after The Killer mumbled that he knew which side of the bread was buttered, or maybe that he knew who buttered his toast. Anyway, it had to do with butter and bread.

    The other day I got Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup's Rocks comp. I could only recommend it to someone who really likes "That's All Right" because so many of the other songs are basically slight variations of it. If you know his other song covered by Elvis, "My Baby Left Me", that's roughly the scope of diversity among half the tracks.



    The Omni label (no relation to Omnivore) is an enigma. They have no web presence and many of their releases (including the above Johnny Paycheck) seem to go out of print very quickly. I've considered tracking that one down, but it's missing some of his 60's hits like "A-11" and "The Lovin' Machine" so I instead went with the Country Music Foundation's Paycheck collection.

    If you can get a hold of a copy of the Omni release, you wont be disappointed. Quality is excellent and it has
    a decent booklet as well. It's a pity considering it only came out in 2009, and yet it seems to be off the grid now.
    It wont be a big deal, WHEN Bear Family do their extensive Johnny Paycheck box set....

    The Eddy Arnold Bear Family 1CD "Tears Broke Out On Me" is an enjoyable compilation featuring a whopping 33 songs and was a nice surprise back in 2011. I'd be curious to know if all of these tracks will be included in the forthcoming comprehensive box set, but every Eddy Arnold fan should already own this enjoyable 1CD.
