The Honky Tonk Years (1950-1966)

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Honky Tonk Years 1950-1966 is an accurate title for this mammoth ten-disc set. Tracing Ray Price's career through his heyday in the '50s and stopping in the late '60s, just as he abandoned honky tonk for country-pop, the set documents one of the finest singers and bandleaders in country music. During this era, Price had a long, impressive string of Top Ten singles -- including "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes," "I'll Be There If You Ever Want Me," "My Shoes Keep Walking Back to You," "City Lights," and the massive hit "Crazy Arms" -- and led a band that featured, at various times, such musicians as Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, and Roger Miller.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Honky Tonk Years 1950-1966 is an accurate title for this mammoth ten-disc set. Tracing Ray Price's career through his heyday in the '50s and stopping in the late '60s, just as he abandoned honky tonk for country-pop, the set documents one of the finest singers and bandleaders in country music. During this era, Price had a long, impressive string of Top Ten singles -- including "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes," "I'll Be There If You Ever Want Me," "My Shoes Keep Walking Back to You," "City Lights," and the massive hit "Crazy Arms" -- and led a band that featured, at various times, such musicians as Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, and Roger Miller. Price and his band were talented enough to make weak material, which helps make this exhaustive set interesting; after all, there's bound to be a few lesser cuts in a box that runs over 260 tracks. Though the strict chronological session order is occasionally tedious, the quality of the music far outweighs the flaws in presentation. For serious listeners and musicologists, The Honky Tonk Years is an essential purchase, since it offers a complete picture of one of the biggest figures in country music. Neophytes and casual listeners, however, are advised to stick with the single-disc collection The Essential Ray Price, simply because it is far easier to digest.

    Any serious fan of honky tonk country music recognizes the contributions made by Ray Price, the artist who literally defined the genre. This set is remarkable in that, by listening chronologically, you can hear how Ray's career progressed over the years. And let's don't forget all the important musicians--names like Tommy Jackson, Jimmy Day, Joe Zinkan, Pete Wade, and Floyd Cramer, as well as those more familiar names noted in the bn.com review--who are often overlooked but who played a major role in making this music successful. The included book highlights these people, in addition to giving a session-by-session account of Ray's recording career, and it is fantastic. A major gripe I have with this set is that in their zeal to provide stereo reissues, on several key cuts (such as ''Heartaches by the Number'' and ''The Same Old Me'') the Bear Family engineers lost Ray's overdubbed hamony vocal, which in most cases is crucial to the sound of the recording! This is a glaring error which keeps me from giving this set the full five stars. Nevertheless, that's only a problem on very few of the over 200 cuts here, and the set is, overall, wonderful.
