The Cold Hard Facts Of Life/Soul Of A Convict
"Here for the first time on one CD are two of his very finest 'concept' albums (both originally issued in 1967) The Cold Hard Facts Of Life and Soul Of A Convict plus a number of rare 45-only tracks and versions. Superb showmanship and earth-cracking sincerity abound as Porter's cast of inebriates, cutthroats and troubled souls are captured on wax in all their moribund glory. Remastered from the original tapes and complete with original artwork and exclusive liner notes, these albums were recorded at a time of great tumult in Porter's personal and professional life and are without doubt the darkest jewels in country music's crown. 30 tracks on one CD including the hits 'The Cold Hard Facts Of Life,' 'Julie,' and 'Be Proud Of Your Man.'"
