Big record find from a couple months ago at a flea market: The Greatest Country Music Recordings of All Time by the Franklin Mint; a 50-box, 100-LP set with extensive liner notes. Goes from the earliest recordings through the early 80s.
Best of all, it didn’t break my rule of only buying $2 records. Got the whole set for $100. Heckuva deal!
