Many thanks Absolutely Sweet Marie, I know this must be a lot of work to keep track of, and I for one, really appreciate your efforts. When I was growing up artists like George Jones were called "Country Western" and it seems like a lot of who are represented fall into that category, Porter Wagoner, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Paycheck.... and I never was very fond of that style or sound, but I have to say that on TTRH I had my mind opened at bit and I try not to FF those songs, but to stay with it.

And there are many artists represented who I never even heard of before, and who I really like! eg: Professor Longhair, Anita O’Day, Ruth Brown and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

An unpredictable list, to be sure! Not at all what I expected to hear, and I was very interested to see how each theme would play out. Thanks for the scorecard!
