Description

“The sonics are the point here, or at least the main point. Ford’s deep, resonant voice, with a bit of reverb, is very well recorded. You could consider this a voice-fetish record of the ‘Wonderful world of … Vocals’ variety, and I’m sure many will buy it for that reason. But I hope some will buy it for the music: It may be an acquired taste for 21st century hi-fi sophisticates, but on its own terms, it’s good, so broaden your horizons. Pressed on flat, quiet 180g vinyl.” — Jim Austin, Stereophile, January 2021

Country Hits…Feelin’ Blue, released by Tennessee Ernie Ford in 1964, is a throwback — or as the liner notes to this country classic (perhaps Ford’s best) say, “You don’t hear much singing like this nowadays — just a voice with easy guitar and bass accompaniment.” But oh, what a voice. Ford’s resonant-voiced baritone might be best known for his 1955 cover of Merle Travis’ grim coal-mining song “Sixteen Tons,” with sales topping 4 million copies. The hit cemented Ford’s place as one of America’s top entertainers — a singer and TV host who enjoyed success during the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s in multiple musical genres — country, pop, and gospel.
