    So-so list. I’ve never heard of the Wells/Foley or Donna Fargo records. Will have to listen to them. The Alan Jackson “Summertime Blues” cut always struck me as filler. He didn’t really bring anything to it to distinguish it from the Eddie Cochran original. And by that point, Jackson had already been singing about his wife and daughters, so his persona in the song as a teenager seemed forced to me. I was surprised it became a #1 hit.
