The year was 1958 and some country music didn’t have that soft pretty sound, but Stonewall Jackson had the right mix with his beautiful 1958 hit “Don’t Be Angry”. The song still sounds great today. This is a beautiful love song with a pretty melody and simple chords.
Del Reeves is known for his truck driving songs, including “Girl On The Billboard”, but Del Reeves says this song, “The Only Girl I Can’t Forget”, is a real country song from 1963. Del performed the song on the television show Country Family Reunion, and was asked if we will ever hear real country songs like this on the radio any more.
I bought my copy of Waylon Jennings “Leavin’ Town” at a record shop in Long Beach California in 1966. At the time I had no knowledge of Fender’s Telecaster guitar. The song “Time To Bum Again” comes right after “Leavin’ Town”, the title track of this album.
