VARIOUS ARTISTS/BOB WILLS. A TRIBUTE TO BOB'S 100TH BIRTDAY(21 tks.)
VARIOUS ARTISTS/BOB WILLS. A TRIBUTE TO BOB'S 100TH BIRTDAY. Another in a long line of tributes to the HALL OF FAMER & the KING OF WESTERN SWING. While WILLS, who died May 13, l975 was no doubt foremost as far as western swing was concerned MILTON BROWN, for whom WILLS initially played fiddle for, was without question the forerunner. In this collection produced by TOMMY ALLSUP, the sound is re-invented complete with a brass section on some tracks along and a stellar cast of vocalists who perform the all time classic WILLS tunes.
