He became country music's first'crossover' artist. He was also the first country singer to be featured on network radio and television programs.Red Foley was hugely popular wherever he went, beginning with his years as'Rambling Red' on WLS Chicago's'National Barn Dance,' and continuing with the'Renfro Valley Barn Dance,' and finally as the genial host of the famed'Grand Ole Opry' and the landmark television show,'Ozark Jubilee. Red Foley's life was a tragic one.
In retrospect, his personal problems seem insurmountable, yet Red Foley's charisma and talent saw him through these troubled times; his many recordings are his finest legacy. Nearly every Nashville-based star of his stature has had his or her story told by now, everyone except Red Foley. This box set and hardcover book document Red Foley's remarkable recording career.Included is every commercial recording made by Red Foley up to 1950, with the exception of his sacred and children's recordings. Featured are his recordings with the Cumberland Ridge Runners, duets with Lulu Belle and Ernest Tubb, and of course, his greatest hits, such as Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy, Smoke On The Water, Old Shep, New Jolie Blonde, Tennessee Saturday Night and Sugarfot Rag. With the 164 songs on this 6 CD box, Bear Family Records brings together all of his recordings from 1933 - 1950 for the first time.
Most of these songs have never been on CD, and many have not been available in any form since their original release 75 years ago, including 18 songs that are issued here for the first time. The hardcover book contains an essay by Cary Ginell, a discography by Cary Ginell, Dave Sax & Richard Weize and many rare pictures and illustrations.
