Who is Eddie Cletro? Until recently, he was a secret from all but the hippest record collectors and fans of obscure early country music, but this 2006 retrospective compiles 26 of his recordings from the 1950s. His smooth vocals, jaunty songs, and crackerjack backing band, the Roundup Boys, are reason enough to hunt this one down, but as a bonus it also includes tracks featuring the revered singers Rose Maddox and Eddie Dean. As with all releases on the esteemed Bear Family label, it also includes a scholarly book of liner notes and pictures.
