The Pops Goes Country/The Pops Goes West

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
Beginning in the 1950s, the immensely popular American conductor Arthur Fiedler and his Boston Pops Orchestra made a series of records covering not only the world's most-loved classical pieces, but also crossing over into popular music with great success.

Whether it was the Beatles, Broadway, or Hollywood, eventually everyone who was anyone went "Pops."

Making its debut in the digital realm, courtesy of Real Gone Records, is a reissue of two of their excellent collaborations, The Pops Goes Country and The Pops Goes West. The former covers a wide range of Nashville favorites, including one of Atkins' signature songs, "Country Gentleman," while the latter focuses on music from the popular film and TV Westerns of that era.
