Freddie Hart will always be remembered in country music circles for his #1 smash hit Easy Loving from 1971. Whatmost people never realized was that Freddie Hart had been making great country music records for almost twenty yearsbefore his big hit! With a plaintive voice and great songwriting abilities (he wrote Loose Talk for Carl Smith, as well asmany other tunes for Buck Owens, Wayne Raney and others),
Freddie Hart was always top notch country talent.
Freddie Hart wasfrom Alabama, and after being under the wing of both Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell, found himself out in California asa regular performer on the successful 'Town Hall Party' television show.
Freddie Hart recorded in the 1950s for both Capitol andColumbia Records, making great hillbilly, country boogie, rockabilly and honky tonk records that were unjustly obscure.Now Bear Family has compiled a solid 'best of the early years' that spans from Freddie Hart's 1954 debut to his first breakthroughhit The Wall from 1959.
