Various Artists (Starday Records)

If "Pappy" Daily and Don Pearce had just given us George Jones, their place in history would be secure. George Jones has been one of the most significant country artist of the post-Hank Williams era and his career was nurtured on Starday. Daily and Pearce's finger-prints were all over the country and rockabilly map of the 1950s - whether it was Pearce working with the slick Bill McCall at 4 Star or running his Hollywood label, or Daily's keen eye for talent, launching Starday and the important D label. The duo split in 1958 with Daily producing Chantilly Lace by the ill-fated Big Bopper on D, while Pearce carried on with Starday, hitting the Top 10 with Frankie Miller, Cowboy Copas, Johnny Bond and Red Sovine.
