-Tennessee Ernie Ford's trio albums: simple clarity... natural depth.
-Tennessee Ernie Ford's two trio albums: 'Country Hits...Feelin' Blue' (1964) 'Ernie Sings & Glen Picks' (1975) paired here by Bear Family Records® for the first time in any format.
-An early template for the 'unplugged' album... decades before that recording technique became a trend in popular music.
-Featured musicians: guitarist extraordinaire Billy Strange and upright bassist John Moshe (1964), and country and pop crossover superstar/guitarist/harmony singer Glen Campbell and acoustic bassist Chuck Domanico (1975).
-To many in the know these are the finest LP releases of secular music from the singer's long career, with a voice that was well-worn yet enduring.
-Extensive liner notes by East Tennessean, Dr. Ted Olson, Professor of Appalachian Studies at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City.
-The full-color booklet contains previously unseen photos from the recording sessions.
In 2015 Bear Family Records collected Ford's 78 RPM releases along with his 1950s LPs of secular music in the 5-CD boxed set 'Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait of an American Singer, 1949-1960' (BCD17332). That set, though, did not incorporate any of Ford's recordings released after 1960. Ford is most often remembered today for his early recordings. In 1955, the singer scored a massive national crossover hit with his finger-snapped rendition of Sixteen Tons. He remained a prolific recording artist through the early 1980s. Bear Family's release of this single-CD featuring two trio albums presents recordings Ford himself would have wanted to be considered in any discussions about his legacy
'Country Hits...Feelin' Blue' and 'Ernie Sings & Glen Picks' document Ford at his best!
Released in 1964, 'Country Hits...Feelin' Blue' was remarkably stripped-down and unassuming. Among the musicians were two masters on their own instruments: guitarist extraordinaire Billy Strange and upright bassist John Mosher.
