There's Been a Change in Me 1951-55
There sure was a change in Eddy Arnold in the early ’50s, the period covered in toto by this Bear Family boxed set. Eager to shed his "Tennessee Plowboy" image from the late-’40s, Eddy began telling everybody that he wanted to be "a singer of songs," not just country songs, and thus began creating the country-politan sound that conquered Nashville in the ’50s and ’60s. The 166 sides on this 7-CD set include such huge hits as I Wanna Play House with You; A Full-Time Job; Cattle Call; You Don’t Know Me, and the title cut, plus his first, fateful dabbling with strings and 44 unreleased songs highlighted by the unreleased original recording of Arnold’s 1954 #1 hit I Don’t Really Want to Know. A 52-page book chronicles this pivotal period in Eddy’s career.
