My Music Listening Journal- Day 576- Tuesday September 17, 2019.
- COUNTRY MUSIC: A FILM BY KEN BURNS- SOUNDTRACK: DISC 1 AND 2: 2019. COUNTRY. A+. APPLE.: The 5 disc soundtrack to the Ken Burns doc currently running this week and next on PBS. Today I listened to the first two discs- they go in chronological order more or less. My only complaint is- 5 discs 105 tracks. I know they have to keep it affordable etc but it could easily have run 5 or 6 times longer- a 500 song box set would have been great. I’ve heard all these songs before- all classic country music. The great thing- they stop the documentary in 1996 [expect for covering J.R. Cash’s passing in 2003} No Barf Brooks etc. Listening to this is like back when I was a kid being in the car and my dad having the radio on WWVA out of Wheeling WV playing great country.
