Being a bit of a musicologist, I would be doing an injustice if I were to give you a straight country or rockabilly 2002 top 10 list...so here are 10 records that are a bit different, but definitely related to the rockabilly/country world. Some of these are new & some are re-discoveries in my collection. If I were to cut this list into my 3 favorite CDs, they would be Junior Kimbrough, Chuck E. Weiss, & New Orleans Funk; these are pure gems of roots music.
