Onbekend (unknown country compilation)

Over the past 3 years I've downloaded an enormous amount of country music from blogs like Uncle Gil, Red Neckerson and the rest. Sometimes these mp3s are not cataloged in iTunes, and I usually fill in the holes. But in weeks when I download so much, some slip through the cracks and I leave the songs as they are, waiting to be completed later. In one of those cases I've lost the original blog posting and don't know what this album is. It is a compilation entitled "Onbekend", which is a Dutch word meaming "strange unknown person". That doesn't help me one bit. In the Comments section of the mp3 files, there is written "Wheeling West Virginia, Revisited". I could find no album with this name anywhere on the interet, and am hoping someone will come forward with info. I only have songs titles and would love at least to know the artist's names. It is 33 tracks, unbelievable country covers. I listen to it a lot and it's killing me that I don't know who is singing.

I've created another post with all the info about this disc. I'll keep this one here, just to save the comments section.

I knew someone would come through. Thank you very much. Does this blog posting exist anymore? Link? I feel like I should take remove my download link now, since I don't like to steal other people's postings, especially Hillbilly Researcher who is so great.

Thanks again,
Derik
