The ten tracks on Direct Source's This Is Country: Country Livin' provide only adequate representation of these artists. Unfortunately these are re-recorded tracks that should be avoided. If you're searching for the original versions of "Still" (Bill Anderson), "Somebody's Gonna Love You" (Lee Greenwood), or "What Am I Living For?" (Mickey Gilley), look into major-label compilations or the Billboard Top Country Hits series on Rhino.
