With his grandfatherly image, Burl Ives parlayed his talent as a folksinger into a wide-ranging career as a radio personality and stage and screen actor.
Ives made his first records for Stinson, a small folk label, then was signed to Decca, a major label.
In 1961, Ives oriented himself toward country music, resulting in the hit "A Little Bitty Tear," which made the Top Ten in both the pop and country charts.

Burl Ives did score a handful of country hits in the period covered by this five-disc box set, but don't assume that his Nashville years were devoted to cry-in-your-beer country music.
Ives had more pop than country hits during this time, and recorded Hawaiian music, sacred songs, cowboy songs, and pop oldies in addition to the novelties and saga songs that comprise the bulk of the material.
