Bonus rock 'n' roll song by his stage partner, Jackie Burns! Includes Another Day, Another Dollar, recently used in a Volkswagen commercial!
Wynn Stewart is generally hailed as one of the greatest pure singers in the history of country music, as well as one of the architects of the classic Bakersfield Sound. Those who regard Wynn as among the best and most influential vocalists in country music include Buck Owens, Harlan Howard (who wrote many of Wynn's greatest hits) Merle Haggard (who began his career in Wynn's band) and Dwight Yoakam. This compilation includes his up-tempo recordings for Intro, Capitol, Jackpot, and Challenge, all of them nearly impossible to find.
Wynn Stewart was a West Coast legend in the '50s and '60s, but few remember him these days. He died before his classic Bakersfield sound became a cornerstone of current alternative country. He never lived to hear Dwight Yoakam praise him as a greater originator and never heard his songs in commercials and movies. We at Bear Family started to rectify the situation with our career-spanning 10-CD set. If that's too much of a commitment, try this single CD of Wynn's up-tempo songs. Rockabilly, country boogie, and super-fine rock 'n' roll.
