The Louvin Brothers: Radio Favorites '51-'57 CD
The Louvin Brothers, Ira and Charlie, were one of the most influential harmony-singing duos in country music history. This collection of live recordings shows why. Taken largely from the Grand Ole Opry Prince Albert Show, on which the Louvins debuted in the Spring of 1955, the songs here harken to an earlier time in country music, even for the mid-1950s.
