All time favorite country album....probably Marty Robbins - Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs, though, to be fair, most of my favorite country bands pre-date albums. Sons of the Pioneers - Blue Shadows on the Trail; Hank Williams - Ramblin' Man; Tennessee Ernie Ford - Wild Goose; I could go on...




I know it's probably sacrilege to say it, but this slapdash old 70's sampler, 'Country Special' (or Country Naked, as I call it for obvious reasons) has so many wonderful songs from the 50's and 60's - everything from the Louvin Brothers to Roy Clark to Wanda Jackson, it makes an excellent intro to classic country, all for about a buck. Gatefold Cheesecake cover is pretty great too.

Anyone here who knows me, knows that genre ain't exactly my forte, but a few favorites-

Chinga Chavin's 'Country Porn'
David Allan Coe 'Cum Stains On My Pillow'
Mason Profitt- s/t ("Two Hangmen Hanging From A Tree")
Ben Dover & The Tennessee Tucker 'Carpetbaggers'
Waylon 'greatest hits'

...I actually can appreciate a few other D.A.C, Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash, etc, but that genre only
takes up a dinky 'lil area of my man-cave... Laughing

My "favorite" anything changes all the time. Right now, I'm still digging Johnny Cash's posthumous "Personal Files". But I'm a nut for unpolished raw tracks like that, from just about any genre (everything gets so dang over-produced these days). A Jimmy Driftwood "Voice Of The People" tape (dubbed) hasn't left my car in 4 years and gets played all the time. And I've always liked Alabama's "40 Hour Week", just because I was into those songs as a kid.

Favorite on the collectible-side of things might be the Beastie Boys "Country Mike's Greatest Hits". It's a novelty, but the album has such a great story behind it and it's hard to find a real one at a decent price.

My favorite is probably Ray Price's Greatest Hits Vol. 1 on Columbia. It's got all his greatest country shuffles like "Invitation To The Blues." I also like a bunch of the Texas Troubadour albums and an obscure album called "Charlie Walker - Recorded Live In Dallas, Texas."

I suppose it's about time I contributed to this thread. I have many hundreds of great Country Western albums and LPs, so it's hard to choose one "favorite", but this one ranks near the top. Merle Travis "Folk Songs Of The Hills", four ten inch 78s issued in 1947.

Guy Clark's Dublin Blues is pretty close to perfect...IMHO.
