    I just love Marty's persona! He kinda loved others copying him.
    He had this wonderful sense of humour.
    Marty and Merle, just great.

    Definitely. It's even been said that Merle Haggard named his son Marty after Marty Robbins. Pretty neat when two artists can be fans of each other and later become friends.

    We need either a comprehensive box set or 1CD comp focusing on the Shelton Brothers.

    'Deep Elem Blues'

    Another artist we need to see a Bear Family release from is the late great Milton Estes (1914-1963).

    'Too Many Women'

    Thought about getting that one along with the companion volume of earlier recordings, Just A-Pickin' and A-Singin'. Added to the "Eventually Buy" folder.

    Do keep in mind the old Lefty box is out of print and highly sought after. Copies have gone for $500, so it needed to come back some way or other.

    I could watch him all day long. No one treated the music and fans with more respect than he did. The Grand Ole Opry has been dying since Marty died.

    Marty Haggard, this one got some play over here when it came out.
    Pulling a pretty good Daddy Haggard.

    Me too. I enjoyed it a the time. I pulled it out some years later, and the instrumentation sounds dated and
    even amateurish for my liking these days. May be just the 90's digital sound that puts me off.
    Still love 'Amnesia' though.

    Ray Harris was a first generation rocker who recorded for Sun Records and later started Hi Records. Harris has his own thread on this forum and it's a big hit.
    Ray Harris - rockabilly legend recorded for Sun, Hi Records founder

    The Ray Harris recording 'Greenback Dollar' (alternate version) was featured on Vol. 17 of the "That'll Flat Git It" compilation series.

    I saw an article that said we are in a golden age of box sets. The writer seems to be talking about premium priced sets of superstars like Dylan and The Beatles.

    It seems to me that we are in the dark ages of collector's box sets, with only an occasional set being issued by anyone not a superstar.

    I am glad that I ordered the Bobbie Gentry set from England, as Amazon does not appear to stock it at all now that the official USA release date is here.

    Richard Weize, where are you?

    True, with BF slowing and Mosaic all but folding earlier this year. And it looks like they might be focusing their efforts on larger names, as with the upcoming Herman set.

    I always find it interesting to "meet" people with interest in BOTH Bear Family and Mosaic.

    You have to be open-minded. Most music fans tend to have fairly narrow taste, though they may allow a few representatives of other styles in their collection.

    I have a sense that the thing that may be killing both Bear and Mosaic is not the general decline of CDs, but rather a limited availability of licenses to reissue at a reasonable cost to Bear and Mosaic. The corporate owners are getting greedy.

    I think we need to clone Richard Weize , he had the Knowledge and Verve and Drive and Passion to follow through over many years to get these sets off the launch pad , and completed . and Charles Woolfe was a Genius in Box Set Liner Note Writing.. as George Jones Sang ... "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes ?

    It must be very frustrating for reissue companies like Bear and Mosaic, etc., these guys are really keen on the music they want to put out there and if they're stifled by corporate execs just looking at the cash element then that's a real shame.

    It's called 'the music business', I just wish the emphasis was on 'music' and not 'business'.
