The Classic Years 1952-62

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dan Cooper
Swashbuckling Louisiana honky tonk, much of Faron Young's early work on Capitol is marked by an undertone of grinning lasciviousness. That's not a bad thing, given how many of his industry pals completely hid their wolfishness behind apple-pie lyrics. In any case, Bear Family has here collected the entirety of Young's Capitol output on five CDs. Besides the swaggering stuff "If You Ain't Lovin'," "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young," and the amazing "Alone with You" one can hear the hit version of "Sweet Dreams" he cut seven years before Patsy Cline's. It comes with a beautiful 48-page book.
