Description (2 albums on one CD) Ace's second dip into the early '60s Hickory catalog of the "king of country music" combines Acuff's thematically linked 5th and 6th albums for the label. Both were originally released in 1963, and both feature Acuff in what is possibly the best voice of his long career. These albums cover traditional American folk ballads and jubilee-style white gospel, with some of the most famous songs in both genres being featured along the way. Beautifully remastered from original first-generation Hickory Records master tapes, both albums are being reissued here on CD for the first time complete. More than 75% of the tracks have been unavailable for over 30 years.
