In 1949, Jimmy Martin left east Tennessee bound for Nashville. He joined Bill Monroe before striking out on his own to become one of the best loved figures in what he called Good Ol' Country Music. Here are his ultra-rare recordings for RCA (1954) including the classic '20/20 Vision', and complete recordings for Decca/MCA (1956 - 1974). Jimmy's novelty hits, like Can't Quit Cigarettes, are here, as well as his truck driving hit, Widowmaker, but the emphasis is squarely on good ol' country music.
Jimmy's interpretations of classics like Poor Ellen Smith, Shenandoah Waltz, In The Pines, Shackles And Chains, and Beautiful Brown Eyes aren't outclassed by anyone. Backing musicians include the Osbornes, J. D. Crowe, Chubby Wise, Benny Martin, and Bill Emerson.
