1-CD-Album Digipak (4-plated) with 63-page booklet, 28 tracks. Playing time approx. 68 mns.
It's been argued that just about every song ever written - one way or another - is a love song. Even the ones about Hot Rod Lincolns. Some of them are a bit more idiosyncratic than others, but they all get down to the same basic emotions. And where there's love, there's likely to be loss and longing. You might as well sing about it. You'll probably feel better and you might even make a few bucks in the process.
This collection brings together 28 songs about love, loss and longing. You can also throw in regret, just for good measure. Because country music has always been grittier and more down to earth than mainstream pop, these songs are even more powerful. This is one of Bear Family's theme collections, drawing often-overlooked tracks from some of country music's strongest performers and performances from over the past half a century. Just lots of good, solid listening with digitally remastered sound. The package also includes an essay by music historian Hank Davis and full discographical details.
