Justin Tubb: The Nashville Radio Sessions (EP, 7inch, 45rpm, PS, Ltd.)
(shrink wrapped) with inner sleeve, stunning special yellow vinyl pressing.
Justin was the eldest son, of Country Music Legend, Ernest Tubb. Despite being hugely talented, he had a relatively short recording career, and never reached the superstar status of his father. These recordings hail from his mid-fifties Decca Records period, where he recorded both Hillbilly and Rockabilly sides.
These recordings were made for ‘Country Style USA’ (circa 1956), a short 15 minute public service broadcast made for US Armed Forces recruitment purposes. Our hard driving, rockin’ opener, ‘You Nearly Lose Your Mind’, written by his father, is a superb piece of Rockabilly / Hillbilly crossover (a studio version was released on Decca 9-29895, 1956). It’s interesting to note, that when given the opportunity of US wide exposure, he chose to perform predominantly recordings by his peers, and didn’t opt for ‘safe’ Country standards.
Next up is a fine version of ‘It Takes A Lot O' Heart’, a beginners guide to modern romance (a studio version was released on Decca 9-30062, 1956). Opening up side two, is the Marty Robbins track, ‘Lucky Lucky Someone Else’, a tale of lost love, and anguish… there’s a theme here… (a studio version was released on Decca 9-29895, 1956). Closing off side two is a real beauty, George Jones’, ‘All I Want To Do’, a track Justin never even released as a studio recording! He was certainly aiming at the new cash rich ‘teen market’, the very same ‘teen market’ the US Armed Forces were desperately keen to enlist. The pressure, and expectations on Justin must have been immense, given his father’s ‘Elder Statesman’ status in Country Music.
Sit back and enjoy these recordings for what they are, perfect live studio sessions from a hugely talented young man forging out a career in music, a career that would see him gain success as one of Nashville’s stable of Country Music writers. These recordings sound as fresh today, as they were in mid-fifties when first broadcast….. Enjoy!

"If Justin Tubb's country music career were to be described in a baseball analogy, it would be apt to refer to him as a utility player on the All-Star team. He can do, and has done, almost everything in the music field (singer, songwriter, music publisher, businessman), and he can be counted on to do it at least competently. And it is possible at any time that Justin will hit a homer or make the game-winning play in the field." --Otto Kitsinger, 1994
When the offspring of any great country stylist chooses or is pushed into a performing career, comparisons to that celebrated parent are inevitable. Relatively few of those second-generation singers have the combined talent, discipline and ambition to sustain an independent career. For every June Carter, Rosanne Cash, Lori Morgan, Hank Williams Jr. and Hank III, there are dozens of Kathy Copases, Betty Foleys, Marty Haggards, James Monroes, Jimmie Rodgers Snows and Shelly Wests.
Although he never achieved the iconic status of his charismatic father Ernest Tubb, Justin Tubb was one of the standouts. While his famous last name admittedly opened doors normally closed to outsiders, the younger Tubb was determined to make his own mark in Nashville. His warm vocal style couldn't have been more different from his father's dry Texas drawl. His relaxed demeanor and stage presence translated well onto radio and records, while his boyish good looks made him a natural for stage and television. By the time he reached age 20, Tubb was already a Grand Ole Opry regular.
Like his father, Tubb was a skilled songwriter. During the first six years of his recording career, he wrote or collaborated more than a third of the songs he cut for Decca. Later on he wrote country hits for George Jones, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Faron Young, Del Reeves, Ray Price, Jim Reeves and Dottie West, Highway 101, and Ernest Tubb, among others. Imagine That, immortalized by Patsy Cline, endures as a country standard.
During the 1970s Tubb emerged as outspoken champion for traditional country music. At the time of his death in 1998, he was becoming one of Nashville's and the Grand Ole Opry's respected elder statesmen.
Born August 29, 1935 in San Antonio, Justin Wayne Tubb was the first of three children born to Ernest Dale Tubb and Lois Elaine Cook Tubb. At the time his father was a struggling country singer who worked various jobs to make ends meet. Ernest's style was closely patterned upon his hero Jimmie Rodgers, so much so that Rodgers' widow Carrie took the young singer under her wing. She gave him one of her husband's guitars and arranged a theater tour and Bluebird recording contract. Shortly afterwards, two-year-old Justin made his first public appearance, singing with his father over KGKL, San Angelo, Texas...
