Another chapter in it the BMG Heritage "Ultimate" series, the Eddy Arnold volume has virtually everything any "common" fan, or mid-level country music historian, would ever want on a single disc. Twenty Top Three singles covering 21 years of Arnold's tenure with RCA are compiled here with completely remastered sound. From "What Is Life Without Love," which topped the country charts in 1946, to "I Wanna Play House with You" in 1951, to "Make the World Go Away" in 1965, and beyond, they are all here. Liner notes were written by Rich Kienzle and added to by Chet Atkins. For anyone curious about Arnold -- and there is a lot to be curious about -- this is an awesome place to start.
