Vintage Country Vinyl - Tennessee Ernie Ford
I returned Chet Atkins and Friends to charity and in doing so came away with Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford.
Marginally better. About a quarter of the 12 tracks past muster - namely Sixteen Tons and these two country rockabilly numbers.
A couple of others start promisingly then descend into novelty records with silly voices thrown in. I suspect that as he became a TV personality the quality of the music was a secondary concern.
Not sure whether this one is a keeper
