Webb Pierce was one of the most successful country artists during the 1950s, scoring more country No. 1s during the decade than any other artist. He was primarily identified with the honky-tonk school of country, and although over the years his style mellowed somewhat to embrace the developing Nashville sound and occasionally flirted with the rock 'n' roll end of the genre, he was very much a cornerstone of the honky-tonky style. He was certainly extraordinarily popular, reaching the No.1 spot no less than thirteen times, with more than 50 of the 62 titles included in this 3CD set making the Top 10, and in 1955 "In The Jailhouse Now" occupied the No. 1 position for no less than 21 weeks. He epitomised the lavish larger-than-life superstar lifestyle, with his flamboyant suits and his silver-dollar-lined Pontiac convertibles, and the legendary guitar-shaped swimming pool at his Nashville mansion became a popular tourist attraction. Behind all this, however, was a succession of beautifully-crafted country classics, which includes some of the most memorable of that era. This collection comprises every record, both A and B sides, which made an appearance in the country or pop charts during that remarkable decade.
