Bobby Hodge
"Bobby Hodge Collection" (self)

That Bobby never trod plateaus conquered by fellow early Grand Ole Opry performers like Charlie Louvin, Porter Wagoner, Marvin Rainwater, and Little Jimmy Dickens must be ascribed to fortune's insoluble ways, and not any paucity of merit. Collected here are traditional, affable country tracks he cut over hardscrabble years, imprinted with unique personality. A talent under-sung in its time, yes, but thankfully preserved for the ages.

Recommended "Gonna Take My Guitar," "You Asked For What You Got," "Another Broken Heart," "Don't Call the Law," "You've Broke Another Heart," "Bus Drivin' Son of a One"
