His voice was never a thing of beauty, and his band was never the slickest, but there's so much to enjoy here. We take the E.T. story from 1954 to 1960. There's plenty of variety, from bar-room anthems like Set Up Two Glasses Joe to a surprisingly good cover version of Chuck Berry's Thirty Days. There were great forgotten singles like Kansas City Blues, Will You Be Satisfied That Way, Half A Mind, and A Guy Named Joe, as well as rare albums like "The Daddy Of Them All" and "The Importance Of Being Ernest." E.T. wasn't about to change just because everyone else was, and his Texas honky tonk music comes no finer than this.
