Carl Smith
Styles: Country
Catalogue Number: ADDCD3129
We continue our series of releases of comprehensive hits collections by significant personalities from the US country scene during the post-war decades with an anthology devoted to the prolific hit-maker Carl Smith, husband of June Carter (later June Carter-Cash) and father of Carlene Carter. This great-value 50-track 2-CD set comprises all the entries in the US country charts which Carl Smith scored from his chart debut in 1951 through the decade and more that followed, including a remarkable run of 21 hits with consecutive singles during the ‘50s and a total of 30 Top 10 hits. It naturally includes his five No. 1s with “Let Old Mother Nature Have Her Way”, “Don’t Just Stand There”, “Are You Teasing Me”, “Hey Joe” and “Loose Talk”. Much of his output during the mid-‘50s had a distinct rockabilly flavour, and echoed the sounds of the rock ‘n’ roll explosion of the time. He was one of the major figures of the country scene, and this is an excellent showcase for his consistently top class output during the key years of his chart career.
