Lefty Frizzell – With You Always: The U.S. Country Chart Hits (1950-1959 Plus!) (2020)

Posted by Green on July 11, 2020as


Considered by many country fans (and also many country artists) to be the father of modern country singing, Lefty Frizzell came seemingly out of nowhere in the late 1940s to influence a massive number of future country icons, from George Jones, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson to Randy Travis and Dwight Yoakam – just a few of the superstars of country who have recorded Lefty’s compositions.

A superb songwriter and gifted vocalist whose warm intimate phrasing has been frequently imitated but always remains uniquely his, Lefty’s biggest hits are still performed and still enjoyed almost 70 years after his breakthrough in 1949.

This Jasmine collection features every one of Lefty’s country chart hits from the first 13 years of his recording career – a surprisingly small number, given the extent of his influence – and augments them with a cross section of the very best ‘other’ sides he made during his first 13 (of 23) years as a Columbia recording star. Many of the most iconic songs in the entire history of Country music can be found and enjoyed here
