Review

Review Text This isn't an ideal compilation, in the sense that none of the material on it was ever a hit, so the general public might not care for it -- and people looking for anything like "Purple People Eater" or the Ben Colder material will be disappointed. But Bear Family has gathered together Wooley's two early-'60s country & western albums, and they're very fine, even including a few originals that are quite good. He does a good job with the Rawhide title song and also deeply evocative pieces like "Enchantment of the Prairie" and "The Story of Billy Burdell," backed by the likes of Earl Palmer on drums. How the West Was Won includes numbers such as "High Lonesome" and "Plowin' in the New Ground," and the sentimental "Papa's Old Fiddle," all of which come off well in the manner of Gene Autry/Johnny Western/Sons of the Pioneers-style Western songs. The backing musicians include Charlie McCoy on harmonica and Earl Palmer on drums. ~ Bruce Eder
