As a talented black country-singer recording on the heels of Charley Pride's success, Stoney Edwards deserved better than just three minor Top 40 country hits. These disappointing results can be explained away, perhaps, by the inferior songs he often recorded, but more likely Edwards's career was hampered because he never laughed away his blackness the way Pride did. On this solid 20-song set, Edwards--whose voice was similar to Pride's, though a bit more nasal and with plenty of Lefty Frizzell-inspired vibrato--is great when his songs are great: "Blackbird," a No. 41 hit that includes the then-shocking line about "a couple of country niggers," and "Hank and Lefty Raised My Country Soul" remain among the greatest-ever country music singles. --David Cantwell
