The ten tracks on Direct Source's This Is Country: Country Nights provide only adequate representation of these artists. Unfortunately these are re-recorded tracks that should be avoided. If you're seeking the original versions of "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink" (Merle Haggard), "Sweet Desire" (the Kendalls), or "Touch the Hand" (Conway Twitty), look into major-label compilations or the Billboard Top Country Hits series on Rhino.
