Review

Review Text King of Country Music is an affordably-priced import collection of some of Acuff's prime recordings, including three with the Crazy Tennesseans (before the Opry urged them to change their name to the Smoky Mountain Boys). 25 tracks from 1936-47 are presented in chronological order, including some of Acuff's signature songs: "Wabash Cannon Ball," "Great Speckle Bird" and "The Streamlined Cannon Ball," as well as several chart hits from the mid '40s. Offering a greater number of tracks than Columbia's Historic Edition, The King of Country Music provides a generous retrospective of Acuff's peak years. ~ Greg Adams
