Legendary Hall of Famer Leon McAuliff's long-lost platter of delicious rural-route steel guitar and twin fiddle sounds, mixed with a frenetic, rockin' country band on cuts-a southern stew steeped in the Houston native's Texas roots! Includes the hit single "Faded Love." From the original Starday masters, pressed on colored vinyl!Established in 1953, Starday Records quickly became one of the premier independent country labels of the 1950s. Specializing in hardcore honky tonk and rockabilly, Starday released some of the wildest rockabilly of the 1950s and launched the career of country music superstar George Jones. When label co-owner "Pappy" Daily sold out to his partner Don Pierce in 1958, country music was transitioning to a slicker, pop-oriented sound. Pierce chose a different path, targeting a still-thriving market for LPs of tradition-al country music and such niche genres as bluegrass and steel guitar instrumentals. Over the next 10 years, Pierce built Starday into the largest independent country label in the world through a massive mail order operation and a rack jobber distribution network placing Starday's distinctive-looking LPs in truck stops and rural markets across the United States
