GRIFFIN, Rex: The Last Letter (3-CD-Box & 16-Page Book)

(Bear Family Records) 78 tracks - 

Rex Griffin is one of the great tragic figures in country music history. Starting as a disciple of Jimmie Rodgers, he went on to become one of the most gifted and original songwriters in the history of country music and one of its best singers. His brief life, clouded by alcoholism and tuberculosis, is the stuff of legend. His recordings included the original version of his classic weeper The Last Letter--one of the greatest country songs ever written, as well as the original version of his song Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby--later recorded by Carl Perkins and The Beatles, and Lovesick Blues--later copied almost note-for-note by Hank Williams. This 3-CD set is a complete edition of Rex Griffin's recordings, made for Decca, King, and World Transcriptions between 1935 and 1946. It also includes Rex's younger brother, Buddy, singing some of Rex's songs on previously unissued acetates, as well as Buddy's rare singles for Dude and Ekko. A biography by Kevin Coffey includes the first in-depth research on the life and death of Rex Griffin.
