Wesley Tuttle was a country star of the immediate post-war era, although one of his earliest forays into showbiz was contributing the yodelling for the “Silly Song” in Walt Disney’s 1937 movie “Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs”. Raised in California, he was always part of the west coast country fraternity, based variously around the cowboy country scene of Hollywood western movies, the popular western swing groups, and the emerging group of Bakersfield-based innovators comprising emigres from the southern and mid-western dust bowl states. This 53-track 2-CD collection comprises selected A and b sides of his releases on the Capitol and Coral labels from this era, and includes recordings with Tex Williams’ Western Caravan, and with Merle Travis in his Texas Stars and as Shug Fisher & The Ranchmen, along with duet recordings with his wife as Wesley & Marilyn Tuttle. Features his US country No. 1 “With Tears In My Eyes”, plus his other hits “I Wish I Had Never met Sunshine”, “Tho’ I Tried (I Can’t Forget)”, and “Detour”, and the Wesley & Marilyn Tuttle hit “Never”. This selective overview of the primary era of his career offers an entertaining showcase for a stylish and versatile performer who typified the California country scene of that era.
