    Here is yet another incredible box set released by Bear Family. This is the later works of Ernest Tubb and the sound is superb. Not only does Bear Family provide 6 CD’s of ET, but the usual, detailed, full-sized booklet covering the related discography and era of Tubb’s career. While there are quite a few Ernest Tubb cover songs here, there are some real hidden gems here that you will not find anywhere else! This includes: a large selection of songs performed by Jack Greene and Cal Smith….not to mention some incredible instrumentals by the Troubadors. And, if that wasn’t enough, There’s a full library of duets of ET and Loretta Lynn……I can’t recall ever seeing these numbers provided elsewhere. This Box set is worth every cent and is worthy of the highest praise. A++

    This box set is one of the most greatest sets I have ever owned by the legendary ET and I highly recommend this for every fan of the Texas Troobadoor! This set features his 8 year recording career at Decka from 1966-1975 and the highlight of this set is the classic Another Story, Another Time, Another Place which is the title of the set. His duets with Loretta Lynn are really masterpieces especially my favorite, Sweet Thang. Also Tubb’s version of Faron Young’s She Went A Little Bit Farther is amazing plus his Merle Haggard songs such as the Bottle Let Me Down and Sing Me Back Home! Words can’t express how much I am enjoying this great set and I am so pleased to have every Bear box set by ET’s entire recording career from 1936-1975. By the way who is that singer singing songs such as Gone, etc? It can’t be Jack Greene or Cal Smith could it? I know that on the set Waltz Across Texas there are quite a few songs which feature these two singers and a bunch of instrumentals by the Troobadoors which are outstanding! In my opinion Ernest sounded great in the 60’s and 70’s when he had members such as Cal, Jack, Leon Roads, Buddy Charlton, etc. So sit back, relax and enjoy listening to ET! Play it pretty, Leon!

    I should preface this by saying that I grew up listening to Ernest Tubb. He was my dad’s favorite singer so there may be some bias to my view. The title of the box set, “Another Story” is also my favorite song of his. With that being said the Bear Family have done their usual stellar work in getting everything that they could possibly find onto this final box set. Here you will find the last two solo Texas Troubadour albums and final two duet albums with Loretta Lynn. You will find songs previously unrecorded and covers of songs of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with some interesting choices as well (E.T. singing “Commercial Affection” is still growing on me but his take on “Big Diamond” I think is outstanding). While the voice seems constant you will notice that the notes aren’t being held as long in the 1970s as they were in the 1960s; an effect of the emphysema he was diagnosed with in 1965. You will note that many songs stick to the tried-and-true honky tonk band style though a handful of more modern-sounding instruments (that instantly date the tunes as products of the early ’70s) were slotted in by the producers. The liner notes by his biographer Ronnie Pugh are well-written and very informative as are the notes on the Troubadours themselves. One is never on the top of the mountain forever and, while his star power was in descent, the quality of the music is strong and stands testament to the honky tonk style Ernest helped propel to the phenomenon it was and, thanks to the rock and roll style favored by Nashville, to a lesser extent still remains. I bought this on the strength of the songs of this era from Ernest that I knew and loved and came away impressed that his canon of work for his last nine years with Decca/MCA was overall just as good. He may not have been the flavor of the month but he was, and will always be, the Texas Troubadour. I just hope that my dad finally got a chance to meet his idol now that they have both left us.
