• George MORGAN - Kisses and Roses – The US Country Chart Hits 1949-1959 and More

The late hillbilly balladeer George Morgan may not be as well remembered as his more famous peers Eddy Arnold and Jim Reeves, but he was every bit as popular in his 1950s heyday as they were on stage, on radio and on records.

Morgan's 'signature songs' 'Candy Kisses' and 'Room Full Of Roses' have both been revived many times in the 60+ years since he recorded the original versions, and were the foundation of a recording career that lasted until his early death in 1975.

'Kisses And Roses' is the most comprehensive single CD of Nashville-born Morgan's early recordings to date, covering 14 years of his career on wax. It contains each and every one of his 16 Billboard country chart hits plus a representative and diverse sampling of his best non-hits from the same period.

Those who think that Morgan recorded little else but ballads are in for a surprise when they hear the breadth and range of repertoire it offers, from up-tempo hillbilly to dance floor shuffles and cheating songs to a little light rockin' pop.

As always, this collection is remastered from the finest possible sources and features a brief but highly informative booklet essay covering Morgan's whole career before and beyond the timeframe of this CD.
