It offers a fascinating trawl across the country and pop spectrum

Elton Britt was a country singer, songwriter and guitarist who was born in 1913, and had a recording career which began in the early 1930s and spanned more than three decades, as he adapted his distinctive and effortless vocal style to the needs of the changing market, and after the Billboard charts were launched in the early '40 he had a string of hits in both the pop and country charts, mostly as a solo artist but also in duets with Rosalie Allen, as well as with The Three Suns and The Skytoppers. This great-value 51-track 2-CD set comprises selected A and B sides of his releases on the Banner, Conqueror, Decca, Bluebird and RCA labels during these years, with recordings as The Wenatchee Mountaineers, Britt & Ford, Pappy, Zeke, Ezra and Elton, as well as in the duet formats already mentioned. It features all his pop and country chart entries from this era, including the pop Top 20 hits 'There's A Star-Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere' and 'Wave To Me My Lady' (which was also a country No. 5), and the Top 5 country hits 'Someday (You'll Want Me To Want You)', 'Blueberry Lane', 'Detour', 'Gotta Get Together With My Gal' and 'Candy Kisses'. From early 'mountain music' through to the more commercial music of the '50s, it offers a fascinating trawl across the country and pop spectrum while offering an entertaining showcase for Britt's smoothly relaxed style.
