Over the course of these 20 tracks, listeners get to encounter the rare and focused genius that was Gary Stewart. Covering his career from the late '60s through the 1970s while he was with RCA, these songs testify to a fine singer and interpreter, a great pianist and guitarist, and a singular songwriter. Among the many gems here -- there's nary an unnecessary cut in the bunch -- are his anthems "Drinkin' Thing" and "Out of Hand" as well as many of his stellar but underappreciated singles, including "She Actin' Single (I'm Drinkin' Doubles)," his fine interpretations of Danny O'Keefe's "Quits" and Michael Murphey's "Backsliders' Wine," and his rather raucous original "Flat Natural Born Good-Timin' Man." Stewart was really a cross-genre artist who rocked as hard as he twanged and had more in common with Jerry Lee Lewis than he did with George Jones, and Essential testifies to this in spades.

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.
