The versatile, velvet-voiced FERLIN HUSKY pursued three separate singing careers. He is of course readily known as the smooth Country-Pop singer who topped the C&W charts with 'A Dear John Letter', 'Gone' and 'Wings Of A Dove', in a hit-studded career which yielded him fifty chart records between 1953-75But before that he was known as Honky-Tonk singer TERRY PRESTON, while during his "Glory Years" he would also frequently morph into Hillbilly hayseed SIMON CRUM, his hugely-popular alter-ego who would register hits of "his own", like 'Cuzz Yore So Sweet', 'A Hillbilly's Deck Of Cards' and 'Country Music Is Here To Stay'This 31-track set presents a unique career overview and includes all his early hits, as both Ferlin Husky and Simon Crum. A handful or so of these sides are impossible to find elsewhere on CD, making this a must-have for fans.
