Various Artists - Truck Stop Sweethearts & C.B. Savages - The Plantation Records Story (Double CD)



Plantation Records was launched in 1968 by Shelby Singleton, the entrepreneurial former head of Mercury and Smash Records, and a celebrated record industry maverick. Essentially a dedicated Country label, with a strong emphasis on novelty and idiosyncratic recordings, Plantation is remembered primarily for its biggest hit, Jeannie C. Riley's multi-million selling 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', which topped both the U.S. Pop and Country charts. The label registered a further three dozen or so chart entries, by artists like David Wilkins, Dee Mullins, Linda Martell, Sleepy LaBeef, John Wesley Ryles, Rita Remington, Webb Pierce, Bobby Hood and Patti Page, whilst non-charting artists included Ray Pillow, Rex Allen Jr, Jimmie Dale & The Flatlanders, Lois Ann Struck, Hank Locklin, Gordon Terry, Jimmy C. Newman, Barbara Eden, Roy Drusky and Leroy Van Dyke.

These fifty tracks present the very best of Plantation's singles output, including 23 US Country hits. The set features the label's four million-sellers: Jeannie C. Riley's sassy 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', Harlow Wilcox's guitar instro 'Groovy Grubworm', C-Company featuring Terry Nelson's controversial 'Battle Hymn Of Lt. Calley' and Rod Hart's bizarre gay truckers' anthem 'C.B. Savage'. Very little of this material has previously been reissued, in any format, and many of these sides make their CD debuts on this set.
