The folks at the British Archive of Country Music spend their days searching for hard-to-find recordings that might otherwise be lost forever if not for their willingness to collect them and convert the old records to CDs for modern audiences to enjoy. They were so excited to locate the Wesley Tuttle tracks on this new CD they rushed as quickly as possible to get them to you. In their haste, they made a few typos in the notes and art work that probably should be explained, for the record, so to speak.

    The name of Wesley’s band was The Texas Stars, not All-Stars as depicted on the cover. And during the process of re-typing the liner notes for the layout, part of a sentence was inadvertently dropped. It referred to the uniqueness of Wesley’s recording of a wonderful song composed by Smiley Burnette, “On the Strings of My Lonesome Guitar.” The version on this CD is the only recording of that song I know of, that includes the verse. But the liner notes say it’s the only recording of that song, period. It’s not.

  With that out of the way, let me say that this is one CD every Western music fan should have in their collection. The music, which includes Western, Western swing and smooth country ballads, with 5 instrumentals among the 26 tracks, is fantastic. In addition to a number of standards, there are some rarely heard gems, and Wesley’s beautiful voice can be especially appreciated on some of them like “Just a Baby’s Prayer at Twilight”,  “When I was a Boy from the Mountains” and Jenny Lou Carson’s “Many Tears Ago.” Some of the great Western songs we don’t hear much anymore include “I Got to See Texas (just once more),” “I Long for the Hills of Wyoming”  (which Wes may have learned when he was working with Stuart Hamblen) and the great Tim Spencer composition, “He’s Gone Up the Trail.” There’s plenty to enjoy and this one’s a “must.” Available from VenerableMusic.com, phone (678) 232-0268 or Amazon.com.
