Buck Owens has got his due, Merle Haggard too, so surely it must be time for Tommy Collins to get some recognition. Tommy Collins was the Godfather of the Bakersfield Sound, and this set is the result of a personal quest on the part of Bear Family to make his classic recordings available again. Anyone with a taste for Buck 'n' Merle can buy this with absolute confidence. In fact, we hear Buck as session picker on four years of Tommy's recordings, and he later cut a tribute album to Tommy Collins. In 1981, Merle cut 'Leonard' in tribute. They knew how great Tommy Collins was and how important his records were, even though they've been out-of-print for years. Now we've documented his Morgan, Capitol and Columbia sides to set the record straight. The 144 titles include High On A Hilltop, You Better Not Do That, I Guess I'm Crazy, No Love Have I, All The Monkeys Ain't In The Zoo, A Hundred Years From Now, I Got Mine, and 'If You Can't Bite Don't Growl'.
