was one of the most popular honky tonk vocalists of the 1950s, racking
up more number 1 hits than similar artists like Hank Williams, Eddy
Arnold, Lefty Frizzell and Ernest Tubb.
In the early '50s, every single he released hit the Top 10, with a total
of ten reaching the number 1 spot. In fact, Webb's career stands as one
of the most successful in the history of country music.
Now reissued on CD for the first time, these two LPs were originally
released in the early 1960s, when Pierce was a potent chart force in
country music. Included here is 'Drifting Texas Sands', which Bob Dylan
selected for the 'Texas' theme of his radio show.
The accompanying booklet includes photographs, liner notes and full
lyrics to every featured track. CD digitally
