Country singer and disc jockey Slim Willet's ode to tool-pushin', Texas Oil Patch Songs was issued in 1959 by the artist on his own Winston label, and is now an impossibly-rare LP to dig up. This Modern Harmonic edition is faithful to the original, including all twelve tracks, liner notes, restored artwork, and primed & pumped onto vinyl! This magnificent lost treasure from the great Texas oil fields was once something of lore. Only rumored to exist. Slim Willet's mighty collection of blue collar, well-digging classics stood little chance to begin with as only a few hundred were pressed, and oil songs never really caught on in the way the similar trucking-songs would several years later. Had Slim put this out during the great Gas Station/Truck Stop 8-Track Market of the 70's this could have been a hit album, but with his passing in 1966, it was never to be.
