One of the most unique country music stylists of all time, Slim Whitman remains one of the music’s true legends and one of its most enduring stars, even more popular outside the United States than at home. Whitman had risen to the top of the business in the early Fifties, and while his popularity slipped a little in the 1960s, he continued make great singles and albums that have withstood the test of time. His work during this era set the stage for his comeback during the 1970s and ‘80s.
This boxed set picks up the Slim Whitman story in 1960 (where our first boxed set, 'Rose Marie,' ended) and takes the story to the Spring of 1966. By then, Slim Whitman had become an album artist, and this set includes all of his superb LPs from those years, including 'Just Call Me Lonesome,' 'Cool Water,' 'Sings Annie Laurie.' 'I'm A Lonely Wanderer,' 'Yodeling,' 'Irish Songs The Whitman Style,' 'All Time Favorites,' as well as 'Country Songs, City Hits,' 'Love Song Of The Waterfall,' 'Reminiscing,' 'More Than Yesterday,' 'God's Hand In Mine,' and 'Travelin'Man.'
Many of the 157 songs are in stereo for the first time. This set also contains the songs that Slim recorded in South Africa in 1965, both those with Virginia Lee and those in Afrikaans. In addition, there is a newly-researched biography by Kevin Coffey and a discography by Russ Wapensky and Richard Weize.
