Press - Lefty Frizzell - Life's Like Poetry 12-CD-Box - Music City Texas
Not so much a record, more a way of life-270 tracks,the entire recording career, tragically cut short by his death at 46, including alternative versions in strict chronological sequence, of one the greatest, most successful and influential of all country artists.

 

Press - Lefty Frizzell - Life's Like Poetry 12-CD-Box - Country Music Round Up May 1992
Bear Family's 12 CD Box Set 'Life's Like Poetry' BCD 15550, leaves no stone unturned in it's quest to deliver Lefty Frizzell's entire listenable works, including unissued tracks, demos (some basic) and Navy, Airforce and Marine Corps transcriptions. Richard Weize precisely details the 330 track discography, where, apart from Lefty's stock numbers repetitions are nominal. Among those who've paid tribute in song to Lefty we've had Merle Haggard, 'Goodbye Lefty', and Willie Nelson recording the album 'To Lefty From Willie', George Strait covering Whitney Shafer's 'Lefty's Gone', the list goes on, as does his music . .

Someone recently wrote that if you took the Lefty soundalikes
out of the Country Top 50, it would become the Country Top 25.

of the most impressive releases of all times (no exaggeration!)
