Time-Life Album Discography, Part 13:
Country & Western Classics

By Mike Callahan, Randy Watts, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: February 20, 2008

These were 3-LP box sets with a booklet inside with liner notes and photos. Original covers showed a set of barroom swinging doors; later covers showed pictures of the artists. Apparently the entire series was pressed by Columbia Special Products.
