EU-only collection. 30 ONE HIT WONDERS OF US COUNTRY & WESTERN is a fun compilation of tracks which provided the only significant C&W chart hit for their respective performer. This Volume concentrates on the US C&W CHARTS between: 1949-62 and features an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres, from Hillbilly to Honky-Tonk, from Rockabilly to Countrypolitan, from Novelty songs to Death Discs. Juxtaposes million-selling, crossover Pop hits like Vaughn Monroe's original version of 'Riders in the Sky', Gene Vincent's menacing 'Be Bop A-Lula', Wink Martindale's cheesy recitative 'Deck of Cards', Walter Brennan's similarly-crafted 'Old Rivers', the Fendermen's twangy 'Mule Skinner Blues', the Rooftop Singers' Folksy 'Walk Right In' and Bobby Edwards' lilting title track, alongside half-forgotten Country weepies like Betty Foley's 'Old Moon', Billie Jean Horton's 'Ocean of Tears', Charlie Phillips' 'I Guess I'll Never Learn', Earl Scott's 'Then a Tear Fell' and Vernon Stewart's 'The Way It Feels to Die'.
