“Tennessee Border”: Nashville All-Stars

“Tennessee Border” is a tuneful instrumental from an album, That Happy Nashville Sound, that features some of the finest musicianship that 1960s Nashville had to offer:

Happy Nashville LP

I’m surprised, however, by how little I can find about this 1967 album on the internet.  Perhaps now is a good time for Bear Family or Collectors’ Choice to reissue this album?

Despite its year of release, it would appear that these recordings had already taken place in late 1964 at RCA’s Nashville studios — thanks (yet again) to PragueFrank for the recording session particulars:
