Wesley Tuttle is one of the unjustly forgotten giants of West Coast country music. In 1944, he was the second country artist signed to Capitol Records, and his second record, With Tears In My Eyes, topped the country charts the following year. Detour, I Wish I Had Never Met Sunshine, and Tho' I Tried (I Can't Forget You) were all Top 5 songs for him within the next six months. He was one of the most popular radio and television stars, as well as one of the top West Coast session musicians, and a western B-movie star, supporting Tex Ritter, Charles Starrett and Jimmy Wakely, among others.

This long-overdue 4 CD/1 DVD anthology collates of Wesley Tuttle's Capitol recordings as well as his exceptionally rare radio transcriptions. The DVD features the Western movie, 'Song Of The Sierras', featuring Wesley Tuttle in a supporting role. Also on the DVD are several Snader film transcriptions featuring such songs as Red River Valley, When Payday Rolls Around and Yodeling Boogie. Retired from secular music since 1957, Wesley Tuttle can finally take his place among the true giants of both Country and Western music.

This exclusive boxed set also includes a newly researched biography by Packy Smith as well as a full discography and many previously unpublished photographs.
