    Rose Maddox
    Little Songs of Heartache - Singles As & Bs 1959-1962 CD

    As Lefty Frizzell is deemed to be to be the father of Country singing, the same thing can be said about Rose Maddox's abiding influence on women in country.
    From the age of 12, Rose and her brothers Cal, Fred and Henry were 'America's Most Colourful Hillbilly Band', with sister Rose's sometimes plaintive, sometimes sassy voice establishing a template that would be followed by many of the biggest female stars of the 1950s and beyond - among them Wanda Jackson, Skeeter Davis and Jean Shepard.
    When the family act disbanded in 1957 Rose carried on as a solo artists in much the same vein, and exuded much the same influence over a next generation of country women.
    This collection features many of the most popular songs that Rose recorded in the first three years of her solo career, including the majority of her chart hits from 1959's Gambler's Love onwards.
    Presented with the best possible sound, and from the best possible sources, it is a collection that no fan of 1950s female country can afford to do without.
