Time Life's Country U.S.A. is an excellent series spotlighting original hits from a specific year by the artists who made them famous. This volume samples 24 tracks from 1959, including such classics as Johnny Horton's "The Battle of New Orleans," Ray Price's "Heartaches by the Number," and Marty Robbins' "El Paso," in addition to strong tracks by Skeeter Davis ("Set Him Free"), Frankie Miller ("Blackland Farmer"), and Kitty Wells ("Amigo's Guitar"). This enjoyable sampler will please any die-hard country fan.
