Hank Locklin was one of the early exponents of the honk- tonk style of country, although his biggest successes came during the late '50s and early '60s with hits like Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On and Please Help Me I'm Falling during the time when the boundaries between country and pop were becoming increasingly blurred. This great-value 58-track 2-CD set focuses entirely on his singles output during the first fifteen years or so of his career during which his reputation was established and he had his biggest hits, from his early singles for the Gold Star label in 1948, and through his years with the Four Star label, when he had his initial hits, including the country No. 1 Let Me Be The One, until he joined RCA in 1953for whom he had his major successes. It naturally features the thirteen country and pop hits he had during this period, including, as well as those mentioned above, From Here To There To You, Geisha Girl, It's A Little More Like Heaven and Happy Birthday To Me, and comprises the majority of his A sides during that time with a good sprinkling of selected B sides as well. It's therefore an entertaining cross-section of his work, and offers an interesting insight into how his style developed during what was one of the most dynamic eras in the history of popular music.
