Ol' Rockin' Ern - Ernie Ford

Country Junction
Ol' Rockin' Ern
Ernie Ford
Capitol Records T888

From the back cover: There's a rockin' rhythm in the voice of "Tennessee" Ernie Ford when he sings about things like hunting, fishing, and loving that's especially evident in these songs written by Ernie himself.

Country Junction, Blackberry Boogie, Kiss Me Big, The Lord's Lariat – each tune expresses the feeling and flavor of experiences that were a part of Ernie's boyhood down in Tennessee. Here they are given bright backing by the orchestra and chorus conducted by Jack Fascinato. Jack has accompanied Ernie on all of his bit hits, and as this album proves, the two go together like biscuits and honey.

With all of the natural flavor that has made him one of the nation's top entertainers. "Ol' Rockin' Ern" sings about what he knows and loves best – life "back home" – with enough charm in that deep voice of his to make a city slicker turn farmer.
