Product Details


"He's the biggest singer this music ever knew. You booked him and you didn't worry about crowds. For drawing power in the South, it was Roy Acuff, then God." (Hank Williams) Roy Acuff's recordings for Vocalion/ARC/Columbia Records, 1936-1951, complete for the first time! The records that revolutionized country music from the artist who took the Grand Ole Opry coast-tocoast, and played a major role in launching the Nashville music industry. Many songs that now form part of bedrock American music, including Great Speckle Bird, Wabash Cannon Ball, Freight Train Blues, The (House of the) Rising Sun, Will The Circle Be Unbroken, Beneath That Lonely Mound Of Clay, The Precious Jewel, Wreck On The Highway, Fireball Mail, Night Train To Memphis, The Prodigal Son, Low And Lonely, Pins And Needles In My Heart, I Saw The Light, We Live In Two Diff'rent Worlds, and Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain. Nine CDs plus a DVD! 184-page book, including hundreds of photos, many previously unseen! Defiantly and unapologetically country, Acuff's roots were in Appalachian music, but during the 1940s, he became one of the nation's top stars, touring ceaselessly, appearing in movies, and minting hit after hit. Later in life, his achievement earned him the distinction of becoming the first living inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He also starred on the Grand Ole Opry from 1938 until a few weeks before his death in 1992. Roy Acuff's ARC-Columbia recordings are one of the cornerstones of tradition
