THE FIRST RELEASE EVER TO FOCUS ON DON LAW, ONE OF AMERICAN MUSIC’S MOST IMPORTANT PRODUCERS
FEATURING BIG HITS AND RARE NUGGETS FROM SOME OF COUNTRY MUSIC’S GREATEST AND  MOST INFLUENTIAL SINGERS, MUSICIANS, AND SONG WRITERS
12 PAGE BOOKLET WITH EXTENSIVE NOTES, RARE IMAGES, AND EXCELLENT DESIGN
MASTERED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD FROM ORIGINAL SOURCES
In the mid-Fifties the traditional approach to recording Country music changed drastically, owing much to the production work of Chet Atkins and Owen Bradley. Up until that point fiddles and pedal steel guitar had featured heavily in the make-up of the Country recording process and the removal of these two key ingredients, and the introduction of big lush strings and heavenly backing vocals, completely altered Country. 
One man who stood firm and kept the Honky Tonk flame burning was Don Law and this release shines a light on his work during the era. 
The singers and songwriters that Don Law had such a big hand in helping to success, and who feature here, would go on to become massively influential to many artists and would help to establish the Outlaw Country movement that would wrestle Country music’s soul back from the ear-candy music of the Nashville Sound artists produced by Don’s rivals Chet Atkins and Owen Bradley.

NB: This title is released 23rd Feb 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
