About 'Gene Watson'...

Album Sleeve Notes
'Here is Gene Watson's first album and I'm sure it will not be his last because he is certain to became a tremendous success in the very near future.  Having heard Gene Watson compared to so many singers by so many people, I found myself following the 'comparison' route, but concluding that he really shouldn't be compared to anyone because Gene's greatest asset is that he is just great being Gene Watson.

He is 'original'.  Gene's performances are professional, relaxed and confident.  He sings well under any circumstances, but he can really turn on the feeling and 'put it on the tape' when he is in the recording studio.

I have never heard Gene sing any song of any kind, poorly.  This album was recorded in the best studios in the nation with the finest musicians from Nashville and Houston and you will find Roy Stone's arrangements and production as versatile and refreshing as Gene's singing.

If you try it, you'll like it'.

Sincerely yours,
Russ Reeder
Record Service Company

'Gene Watson' (Wide World Records, 1969 / Stoneway Records, 1973) was produced by Roy M Stone.
