Guaranteed to be the absolute definitive Johnny Horton set, this massive 9-disc collection contains all of his early recordings—including his first single from 1950, a side so rare that only one original copy is known to exist—plus his work for the Cormac, Abbott, Mercury, SESAC, and Columbia labels; the Abbott overdubs; all of Johnny’s known demo recordings as a performer and songwriter; and more, all painstakingly restored to yield pristine sound quality! Topping things off is a pair of 288-page hardcover books—one is an exhaustive biography by Colin Escott with a complete discography and hundreds of photos, many of them previously unpublished, while the other was handwritten by Johnny’s mother in the months after his tragic 1960 death in a car accident, never seen before until now! Simply an incredible retrospective of the life and career of a true country and rockabilly icon! Includes "The Battle of New Orleans," "Tennessee Jive," "Honky-Tonk Man," "North to Alaska," "Sink the Bismarck," "Why In the Dickens Don’t You Milk That Cow," "Plaid and Calico," "First Train Headed South," "I’m a One Woman Man," "Counterfeit Love," "Ole Slew-Foot," "Devilish Love Light," "None of You But All of Me," "Memphis to Mobile," plus much, much more!
