How is this classic album out of print and unavailable digitally?! One of Dolly's all-time best!! Includes the hit title track, "Sacred Memories," and "Highway Headin' South." Essential listening and a favorite among country fans.

We Sure Can Love Eachother

Her Epic albums "Sunrise" (1989), "Tough All Over" (1990), and "Soft Talk" (1991) generated a fair number of hits, plus there's "Under Your Spell Again," which didn't appear on any of those albums.

All Sony has issued for download is a brief album called "Epic Recordings," that doesn't include a number of those hits. All of her albums would be welcome, plus there's the more expansive "This Is Shelby Lynne: The Best of the Epic Years" (2000).

"The Singing Ranger" recorded for RCA (first in Canada, and then in the United States) for more than 40 years, scoring 85 chart hits - all of them for "Nipper." Yet, all that's ever been released by RCA are three CD's covering mostly the same batch of songs. 

Certainly, you could dig into his LP's, but his very best work - and roughly half of those hits - was recorded in the 40's and 50's before the LP really came into it's own. Many of his hits were never even on an album or, at most, a greatest hits LP.

Hank Snow's work screams for, at least,  generous, 2-CD "Essential" package (which are usually available for download) or even a boxed set. Of course, several companies in Europe (most notably, Bear Family) have already done this like crazy - which means his entire catalog has already been digitally remastered. All you have to do is stick it on iTunes!

Waylon Jennings, “Music Man”
(RCA AHL1-3602, released May 1980)

One of the latter-day classics of Waylon’s RCA catalog. The highlight is, of course, the beloved “Theme From The Dukes Of Hazzard,” but this is truly outstanding Waylon; other high points are a version of wife Jessi Colter’s “Storms Never Last” and Steely Dan’s “Do It Again.”

Track Listing:

It’s Alright
Theme From The Dukes Of Hazzard
Nashville Wimmen
Do It Again
Sweet Music Man
Storms Never Last
He Went To Paris
What About You
Waltz Across Texas
