A compilation and though I was 10 and living in downtown Philly at the time, I never heard anything like this before. This probably why I still like "old style" country MUCH better than the over produced pop country we hear the most.

RAY PRICE SAN ANTONIO ROSE on Columbia, 1963. Doesn't get any better than Texas Honky Tonk with a walking bass and songs by Bob Wills.

The Holy Land is a really good/interesting album. It's hard to get the 3-d cover and album in vg+ condition together for under $20 here. He could read the phone book and keep your attention.

I produce a weekly Sunday morning radio show, featuring rock and country artists doing popular songs with a Christian theme to them (i.e.: "Turn, Turn, Turn' by The Byrds, or 'Jesus Is Just Alright' by the Doobie Brothers) - and sometimes I just play most of Johnny's "Holy Land" album, uninterrupted - and people seem to love it. Definitely a unique and well-done LP.
