I mostly like Pre-War Country-Carter Family, Doc Boggs, Jimmie Rogers, though a lot of people consider that folk music.
Western Swing stuff is great-Bob Wills, Hank Thompson, Merle Travis
As far as the stuff you guys are talking about (mid-50's-around mid 70's) I like any classic LP by Jimmy Martin. So great. Most of the more famous guys are great from that era as well, Williams, Acuff, Cash, Jones, Owens, Haggard, Faron Young...I really like Stonewall Jackson too.
You really can't go wrong with any LP's by those guys from the 50's or 60's.
