Featured Artist - Lefty Frizzell (Part Two)

Apart from Run 'Em Off and Late So Early, which are both from the mid-1950s, these next Lefty tunes below are chosen from his 1960's recordings. Still with Columbia, in 1956 he  moved from recording in his home state of Texas to Nashville. The early honky-tonk template gave way to the usual Nashville sound, but the soul in his vocals is never completely submerged, and occasionally, with top song-writers like Harlan Howard contributing, these tunes reach the heights of his early classic recordings.
