"Known as 'The Baron of Country Music,' Dick Curless was a commanding vocal and physical presence. Possessed of a magnificent rumbling baritone, standing an imposing 6' 3" and eye-patched (due to genuine health problems) Curless battled drug and alcohol addictions for much of his life yet left a compelling catalog of music. The 1968 LP The Long Lonesome Road is perhaps his greatest album and is presented here in its entirety (including the bleakly autographical hit 'Bury the Bottle with Me') with 19 astounding extra cuts. They range from Curless' chilling trucker anthem 'A Tombstone Every Mile,' the stark 'Foggy Foggy Dew' to rollicking barroom laments like 'Loser's Cocktail' and the haunting anti-war ode 'Old Bob Burton.' Remastered from the original master tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos. Twenty-nine track CD. All original recordings. Many tracks first time on CD."
