Legends of Country Music contains several honky tonk and country-pop hits from MCA artists from all eras, including Kitty Wells' "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels," Conway Twitty's "Hello Darlin'," Bill Anderson's "Mama Sang a Song," Webb Pierce's "I Ain't Never," Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight," the Oak Ridge Boys' "Bobbie Sue," Ernest Tubb's "Thanks a Lot" and Don Williams' "Til the Rivers All Run Dry." (The CD also contains Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." and Loretta Lynn's "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl.") The selections and sequencing may not make a lot of sense, and skipping through the eras this haphazardly can be a little wearying, but it's still contains enough good music to be a bargain for its cheap (under four dollars!) retail price.
