    Splendid Sounds From Texas

    wonderful vocals and super arraignments. Wills last album but still a thrill. Bob and his Playboys have never lost their charm or their genuine talent. The southwestern swing style will live on because of it's inventiveness and complexities that are fun to hear and reflect a mature American music. Rap will fade away. Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys never will!
