Johnny Horton's Greatest Hits
There are a couple of collections of Johnny's stuff available on e-music and there isn't much difference in the selections. His historical classics are here - "Sink The Bismark", "North To Alaska", "The Battle of New Orleans" and "When It's Springtime in Alaska", then there are a couple of LP cuts that fit this mold, "Comanche", "Jim Bridger", "Johnny Reb" and "Johnny Freedom", they left out "Young Abe Lincoln" which is a shame. The ballads are here - "Whispering Pines" and "All For The Love Of A Girl" being the best, and "Honky-Tonk Man", Horton's signature song. I'd have included a couple of his "Train" songs, his own "The First Train Headed South" and his cover of Hank Snow's "The Golden Rocket". Either way this collection is a good cream of the crop songbook from Johnny.
