It couldn’t have been easy for David Frizzell being the younger brother of country legend Lefty Frizzell, but he achieved great chart success in the 1980s with his Warner / Viva label recordings both as a solo artist and with his duet recordings with Shelly West.
"The Family’s Fine, But This One’s All Mine” from 1982 reached No. 7 on the Billboard charts and remained there for 42 weeks. It includes the No. 1 single and Country Music Association nominated song of the year ‘I’m Gonna Hire A Wino To Decorate Our Home’. Also included is the No. 5 single ‘Lost My Baby Blues’.
"On My Own Again” from 1983 includes the Top 10 single ‘Where Are You Spending Your Nights These Days’ as well as ‘A Million Light Beers Ago’ and ‘Black and White’.
The track ‘We Won’t Be Hearing "Always Late” Anymore’ features the voices of all three Frizzell brothers, Lefty, David and Allen.
Both albums appear for the first time on CD.
Produced by Snuff Garrett and Steve Dorff.
