Settin' Flat on Ready-Gonna Shake This Shack Tonig
2008 release coinciding with the 45th Anniversary of this Country star's death. With a career dating back to the late '30s, Lloyd 'Cowboy' Copas was one of country music's great stylists. After signing with King Records in 1946, Copas rose to prominence with a string of hit singles, his distinctive high baritone voice grabbing nickels in jukeboxes across the Southeast and Midwest. Though most of his records were pure, unadulterated Country, Copas showed a versatility that few singers could match. He recorded with Elliot Lawrence's big band and later cut some edgy Rockabilly. This single-disc collection culls the best of Copas's upbeat tracks for King, along with scarce material from his short-lived stints with Dot. 34 tracks. Bear Family.
