Country Style USA with Eddy Arnold and Chet Atkins (1958) Rare Animated Army Commercial!
Why would they do that? To keep people from buying a project that the company invested in since 2008? ;-)
Plus, a stand-alone book would need a revised content and a new print run, resulting in a price that wouldn't be much cheaper than the whole set.
I picked this up last Christmas and it's an interesting novelty listen. It helps I like the song a lot.
Wow, that's great!!!!
We were discussing Ray Pennington a week or two ago and here is an enjoyable song he wrote, entitled 'Curtains On The Windows.' The song was recorded by the late Billy Walker. Hopefully Bear Family Records can someday issue a second comprehensive Billy Walker box set.

Even greater: the set will include mini-replica papersleeves of seven classic Lefty albums (for those who listen to music in their car).
Saw this in the used bin the other day so picked it up, my first of this set and it's a lovely piece of work, song info/mini bio on each track/artist. Cd was a bit of a fiddle to extract but not enough to damage the packaging. Be nice to have the other 24 sigh...
You'll need all of these now. An excellent set and probably my most played CDs over the past 3 years. I'd love to get a vol.#2 for each year. I enjoy every single vol. but was surprised by how much I liked the 1945 through 1955 sets especially. You can find these at pretty good prices if you look around. The booklets are almost worth the price by themselves. Lots of information and many label shots.
Anyone else that likes this style of music but doesn't have any of these should pick one and try it. Top quality music and package. Bear Family at it's best.
Country's hit parade: 'Dim Lights, Thick Smoke and Hillbilly Music'
I cherish my Bear Family John Stewart Cannons in the Rain/Wingless Angels 'twofer' CD along with their CD of John's The Complete Phoenix Concerts. Both CD's have excellent liner notes with quotes from John about the making of the albums. Both albums have since been reissued again (by One Way or Wounded Bird, I believe), and I have not seen those packages to know if they retain the liner notes from the Bear Family releases.

Some of the great CDs in this serie.You will be surprised to hear meny songs in stereo for the first time on these.
Has anyone gone through the detailed listing of the new Lefty Frizzell box and determined how many and which specific MUSIC tracks are not on the 12 CD edition? Even better, the year of the new music tracks? (Not including the 8CDs of "books-on-tape")
Does it include new audio tracks of his TV and radio appearances?
a little info on the classic Gibson he played:
RetroFret Vintage Guitars
I think sideburns like that were pretty rare back then. Even in the 1960's, when I grew sideburns, I was considered a freak. I had the only ones in our school. It was almost taboo. By 1968 or 1969, lambchop sideburns became a style. (Like in that George Jones photo above)
It's not your fault, blame this guy! he started it.
Elvis must have had to go to the hairdresser frequently to get his sideburns dyed. The brown hair would show in a week!
For all you Lefty Frizzell fans, here is a song he wrote with Sanger D. Shafer entitled 'Bandy The Rodeo Clown.' Moe Bandy recorded the song and made it a hit. Moe always tells the audience that Lefty initially called him to discuss this song and caught him by surprise.
That may well be the nicest Bear Family book I've ever seen. Kudos to all involved.
The last couple discs will have a bunch of radio show performances. See Kevin's post:
Your favourite Bear Family releases
Got it today, listened to half of the first disc which I'll finish tonight. Really enjoy hearing them tackle all these songs you don't hear on compilations. Wonder why it's packaged in a DVD-sized digipak, though.
Looking at the included discography of their Tiffany recordings, there's still plenty that hasn't made it to CD. Do your thing, Bear Family!
In reference to some recent Johnny Paycheck discussions, does anybody know who actually owns or
licenses the 'little darlin' recordings now? The information I can only find is that producer Aubrey Mayhew must
had still been in possession of them before he died, as he was starting to licence the recordings out to the now defunct
KOCH label. Aubrey died in 2009, and everything came to a halt.
From what I can see and understand, KOCH was bought by Entertainment One, which is another multi national
enterprise. So the likeliness of seeing any re-released material soon could most likely be impossible.
A bit like obtaining a clearance for the Patsy Cline stuff.
It's concerning when these massive companies take hold, everything we want seems to get pushed into a dark
corner not to be seen again in our lifetimes....
I have heard from asking this question myself on this forum that Gusto owns his LD catalog. In my mind I picture them sitting around using Johnny Paycheck master tapes for coasters and sticking them under the table legs to keep them from rocking while they sit around trying to come up with a new collection of knock off George Jones cds to sell at truck stops.
I just saw someone post Bobby Bare’s “Mercury Years” Bear set on eBay. Does anyone here have it? Why is it so rare? Well I know why it’s rare, they apparently only made like 5 copies of it. Was it sold as a boxed set or as three separate discs?
Also, what are some other hard to find sets?
three separate discs only. but they made a pile of them......
