Bill Anderson: The First 10 Years: 1956–1966
by Steve Morley - Country Weekly
While many highly regarded country artists have immortalized songs from Bill Anderson’s perpetually prolific pen, his own best-known recordings have leaned toward pop-friendly fare, a fact that often dims the perception of his contributions to country music’s past and present. The First 10 Years: 1956–1966, a four-disc box set covering the star’s first decade, is a handsomely designed collection that revisits seven complete Decca albums plus many previously unavailable tracks. These discs, along with a 64-page book, tell the story of his rise to fame and the period in which he hit many of his highest peaks as both singer and songwriter.
