    Time Life is like Rhino in that they typically do a good, but not great job with their reissue
    sets.

    The sound is good but the value for money in terms of playing time per disc is usually poor, discs running 55-60 minutes. In my hands right now I am looking at two different sets covering George Jones’ Starday years. The Time-Life set has 15 songs , the foreign set called THE LEGEND BEGINS has 23 tracks. Fortunately there is only a 4 track overlap so both are worth having

    I read that the Time-Life set will consist of three CDs with 60 songs. This sou for George Jones sounds great but there have already been a number of good sets on the Possum. Unless, of course, Time-Life has gotten their hands on the Musicor material and are including 10-15 of those cuts in the set

    I heard that Willie was trading off on his guitar strap, with the leather one(the red/white/blue was pulling on his neck. It was nice to see it in Waco and at the Back Yard

    Does Miranda Lambert cry every time she eats at KFC? Sheesh…..

    The Top 100 Country Women on Country Universe is off to a great start. Should learn a lot from that one…

    The article on Cindy Walker was very concise but got the point across. Just like with Western Swing music itself, I think Texas is one of the few states where the residents still aprreciate Cindy Walker’s songs and great songwriting talent. Thanks for the link!

    Wow, so it turns out Alan Jackson is a normal human being after all these years! Im shocked!…..(lol)

    I hope to cry if I ‘had’ to eat at ANY fast food place by the time the year is over. ;)
