Rare Country LP

Hank Thompson & His Brazos Valley Boys- Vintage Collections

Album Review:
"The French LP Hank Thompson & His Brazos Valley Boys is a compilation of live radio performances Thompson and his band gave in 1952, just as his career was beginning to take off with the massive success of "The Wild Side of Life." Even though neither that song, or any of his earlier, lesser hits, are included on this collection, the album doesn't suffer as a result. Thompson & the Brazos Valley Boys sound tough and inspired, bringing a considerable amount of grit to his swinging honky tonk. The record remains an item for collector's only, but for those willing to seek it out, it is an enjoyable and fascinating historical artifact."

Thank you very much. I had all but two songs on this album. Been searching everyday for about three weeks or so. I was looking at On muddy Sava Riverbank blog, when I noticed the album cover. I starred at it for a few seconds, Couldn't believe my eyes. Again thanks for your generosity and your good taste in music.

I'm glad I could supply you with the album. I had to buy it because it's really not available on any blog or website. Enjoy the disc!=)
