Don Gibson is an original, now often overlooked. There's so much more to his music than the hits everyone knows. He was one of the most sophisticated writers and singers in country music, and here we have his early sides and his biggest hits. The recordings for Mercury, Columbia, MGM are complete, as are his early recordings for RCA. Highlights include the original versions of Sweet Dreams, Oh Lonesome Me, I Can't Stop Loving You, Sweet Sweet Girl, Don't Tell Me Your Troubles, and I'd be A Legend In My Time.
