Country was – and still is – one of the most passionately loved genres in music. And independent label Starday Records played a defining role in its history throughout the Fifties and Sixties, as well as helping forge the then-blossoming rockabilly scene. The label helped launch numerous stars, including Dottie West, Red Sovine and even a young George Jones.

This two-disc collection contains some of Starday’s best output from 1961 and ’62, when the label was arguably at its peak. Enjoy these country tones and transport yourself back to a more authentic era of US music.
