The Browns CD
Every hit both pop and country notched by the #1 country singing group of the late- 50s and early- 60s! The brother-and-sister trio of Jim Ed, Maxine and Bonnie Brown personified two trends in popular music at the time, the rise of the lush Nashville Sound and the national craze for folk music, and as a result they crossed over from the country charts into pop stardom. Never before had the homespun harmonies of country music sounded so smooth and downright commercial; add to that the Browns' clean-cut image and you had an act ripe for superstardom in late- 50s America. All 24 of their hits (billed variously as the Browns, Jim Edward & Maxine Brown, and the Browns Featuring Jim Edward Brown) are here, with pictures and annotation by Grammy-winner Colin Escott. The most complete Browns hit collection ever compiled!
