Kitty Wells

A-Sides (1949 – 1957)

A-Sides (1949 – 1957)

UK collection from the Country legend, a chronological run-through of the A-sides of Kitty Wells’ single release from 1949 to 1957. With all of the key Country storytelling traits intact, from boozing reprobates to God-fearing repenting, this release contains some truly heartbreaking lyrics delivered in Kitty Wells’ plaintive vocal style. Perfectly moribund with the glorious ‘I Gave My Wedding Dress Away’ and ‘I Hope My Divorce Is Never Granted’ (where the spoken passage alone is melancholy personified) with ‘A Wedding Ring Ago’ completing a relationship counseling trio. Includes some spectacular duets with Red Foley, the legendary Roy Acuff, Carol Sue Wright and Webb Pierce and Kitty at her most impressive. Righteous.

List Price: $ 5.69

Kitty Wells

A typical tavern and bar section of the typical midwestern town in the 1960s. There was normally a bus station and a depot nearby. And in most cases, the willys dealership was located in the low-end district along with the pool halls. There were no tattoo parlors in the 60s in the midwest. The closet ones were on broadway in san diego, so if you wanted a tattoo, you would have to join the navy, be lucky enough to be sent to san diego instead of great lakes and wait until your first liberty. I have no tattoos as yet.

Anyone who remembers this part of town will probably remember Kitty Wells record playing over and over again about "The Wild Side of Life" and stating that it was not God who created Honky Tonk Angels. Who, then, created them, I ask?
