As its title implies, Encore is a collection of late Bob Wills recordings, made after his primary work was done. In 1960, Wills reunited with singer Tommy Duncan, who had left his band in 1948, for the Liberty Records LPs Together Again (1960) and Living Legend (1961). Naturally, the two recorded many early Wills favorites, such as "Take Me Back To Tulsa" and "San Antonio Rose," but also included was "Heart To Heart Talk," which became Wills's first country Top Ten hit in a decade, and his last. In 1963, Liberty recorded a "solo" Wills album, Bob Wills Sings And Plays, on which the bandleader, while still accompanied by a group, was prominently featured both on fiddle and vocals. Ten years later, United Artists Records recorded what turned out to be the final Bob Wills album, For the Last Time, when Wills suffered a stroke following the first session. This three-CD set, which, with a running time of two hours and 35 minutes, might have just fit onto two discs, draws from all these recordings as well as some live radio transcriptions from 1963-64 for a comprehensive portrait of Wills's last two decades. The box, which features a cover photograph of Wills in his prime and gives no indication of when the tracks were recorded, could be deceiving, and the lavish 40-page booklet, containing an extensive essay by Wills biographer Charles R. Townsend, tends to suggest that these recordings have more importance than they actually do in Wills's discography. As Townsend writes, the set contains "fifty-seven of the best recordings Wills made in his later years, " but, while entertaining and constituting a coda to his greatest work that is of historical interest, these recordings are not among Wills's best overall.

Album Description

As its title implies, Encore is a collection of late Bob Wills recordings, made after his primary work was done. In 1960, Wills reunited with singer Tommy Duncan, who had left his band in 1948, for the Liberty Records LPs Together Again (1960) and Living Legend (1961). Naturally, the two recorded many early Wills favorites, such as "Take Me Back To Tulsa" and "San Antonio Rose," but also included was "Heart To Heart Talk," which became Wills's first country Top Ten hit in a decade, and his last. In 1963, Liberty recorded a "solo" Wills album, Bob Wills Sings And Plays, on which the bandleader, while still accompanied by a group, was prominently featured both on fiddle and vocals. Ten years later, United Artists Records recorded what turned out to be the final Bob Wills album, For the Last Time, when Wills suffered a stroke following the first session. This three-CD set, which, with a running time of two hours and 35 minutes, might have just fit onto two discs, draws from all these recordings as well as some live radio transcriptions from 1963-64 for a comprehensive portrait of Wills's last two decades. The box, which features a cover photograph of Wills in his prime and gives no indication of when the tracks were recorded, could be deceiving, and the lavish 40-page booklet, containing an extensive essay by Wills biographer Charles R. Townsend, tends to suggest that these recordings have more importance than they actually do in Wills's discography. As Townsend writes, the set contains "fifty-seven of the best recordings Wills made in his later years, " but, while entertaining and constituting a coda to his greatest work that is of historical interest, these recordings are not among Wills's best overall.

The Past, Present and Future of Black Country Artists

For decades, country music has been largely shut off to Black artists. There have been notable, even iconic, exceptions throughout history, of course. But there are too few of those, to the point that their success was often treated as novelty. There were also too many performers who should have made it big but were forced into stereotypes that didn't comfortably fit. Fortunately, there have been signs of hope in the past few years—hope that feels like a lot more than just good intentions and lip service. This tribute explores the history, and promising future, of Black artists in country music.
