No less an authority than the acclaimed author/producer Colin Escott has hailed this epic release as "the cornerstone of every country music collection."

An Article From Life's first nine CDs chronologically cover Frizzell's 25-year recording career. Disc One kicks off with the two songs on his 1950 breakout first single, "I Love You a Thousand Ways" and "If You've Got the Money, I've Got the Time," while Disc Nine ends with "Life's Like Poetry," a Merle Haggard tune from his last album, Classic Style, which released just months before Frizzell's tragic death in 1975, when he was just 47 years old. In between are 260-some tracks, all newly remastered, of all the songs Frizzell released on 45, 78 and LP, featuring such signature numbers as "Always Late (With Your Kisses)," "Look What Thoughts Will Do," "Forever (and Always)," "Long Black Veil," "She's Gone Gone Gone," and "Saginaw, Michigan."

Charlie Phllps Streaming New Song 'Memory'

Charlie Phllps has released a stream of his brand new track "Memory". The song is the first single from his forthcoming album, Pendulum, which will be released on August 10th.

Phllps spoke to Impose about the track when they did an online premiere. He told them, "When you're at your lowest point in life, confused and down in a ditch, can you walk out of the fire? Can you find something worthwhile in the lows, and not just the highs? What are we really searching for besides just a memory?"

Growing up idolizing masters like Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Phllps would go on to further his craft at SUNY Purchase before finding himself gigging in small clubs in NYC. A familiar tale, but the artist would soon take the leap, quitting his job at a restaurant in Brooklyn and dedicating all of his time to the new songs he was writing. Listen to the song here.
