Country singer and guitarist Stonewall Jackson has enjoyed a career spanning six decades since making a huge impact in 1958 with his No. 1 country single "Waterloo", and was still performing at the Grand Ole Opry as he turned 80. Hailing from South Carolina, Stonewall Jackson was his real name, inspired by the Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. During a chart career which lasted into the 1970s Jackson racked up over 40 hits, often, especially during his early career, crossing over into the pop charts. This 44-track 2-CD comprises the A and B sides of all his singles for the Columbia label from his recording debut in 1957 through to the end of 1962, along with the tracks from his first two albums "The Dynamic Stonewall Jackson" and "The Sadness In A Song", highlighting the work of many of the finest country songwriters of the times. It naturally features all of the fourteen pop, country and UK hits which he had during this era, most notably the No. 1 country and Top 5 pop hit "Waterloo", as well as other Top 10 successes like "Life To Go", "Why I'm Walkin'", "A Wound Time Can't Erase" and "Leona". It represents a thorough trawl across the key formative years of his career, and is an entertaining showcase for his distinctive talents.
