Additional Information

(CD digipac with 36-page booklet) Tommy Collins helped to establish the Bakersfield Sound. Legions of West Coast country performers and current roots/alternative country stars have built on the sound, making it one of the cornerstones of American music. Collins scored several hits as a performer, including You Better Not Do That in 1954. Just as Collins' career was taking off, he had a religious conversion. For several years, little was heard from him. He returned to music, and signed with COLUMBIA in 1965. The following year, had a Top 10 hit with I Can't Bite, Don't Growl. For the next few years, he had a string of hit singles.

By the early '70s, Collins' professional and personal life was on the verge of collapse, due to his increasing dependency on drugs and alcohol. He recovered by writing songs, many of them recorded by Merle Haggard, including the '70s hits Carolyn and The Roots Of My Raising. In 1981, Merle Haggard had a hit single with Leonard, his tribute to Collins. After the release of Leonard, the spotlight again turned to Collins, who was now sober. Tommy resumed professional songwriting and his most notable success was Mel Tillis' Top 10 1984 hit, New Patches. Tommy Collins was one of the pioneers of the honky tonk sound of Bakersfield. Includes the incredible rare first single Campus Boogie, plus uptempo hillbilly boogies and honky tonk classics!
