His Original and Greatest Hits, Vol. 1: The Shot-Gun Boogie features 25 songs by Tennessee Ernie Ford originally recorded for Capitol in the early '50s. While this compilation isn't a complete summary of the comedic baritone-voiced singer, it does include the hits "Smokey Mountain Boogie," "Tennessee Border," "Shotgun Boogie," and his first number one chart-topper from 1950, "Mule Train."
