Editorial Reviews

Al Dexter was the first country artist to cross over to the pop music charts with his smash hit "Pistol Packin' Mama". The song was the 3rd most popular song of the WWII era, inspiring nose art on many a WWII bomber plane-and several battle ships took the name. It was covered by Bing Crosby with the Andrews Sisters as well as Frank Sinatra! This classic country CD set contains 43 of Al's original songs, many of them million-sellers. Owned and operated by Al's children, Al Dexter Music is the exclusive source for these digital recordings, taken directly from Al's original reel-to-reel tapes. You will be astounded by the crystal-clear quality...Accept no substitutes!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By AvidOldiesCollector TOP 100 REVIEWER on December 16, 2012
In my review of the otherwise excellent October 2001 28-track 2-CD set from Roots Of Country titled Al Dexter - Pistol Packin' Mama, I lamented about those of his key sides that were NOT included.

Now I see this tantalizing new box set from Al Dexter Estate Productions, owned and produced by his children, for which the official blurb says "This classic country CD set contains 43 of Al's original songs, many of them million-sellers" which gives me hope that those missing sides I mentioned are included.

Except they don't show the contents here - or anywhere else that I could find! The price is great for that many cuts but come on, guys, give us the songs included before we fork over our cash. I don't buy pigs-in-a-poke.

Update October 20, 2014: coming up on two years since I posted this review and still no move to display the contents - here or anywhere else for that matter without a lot of what can only be described as unnecessary digging. What is it, a state secret?? The 1-star rating is solely to provoke reaction and if someone thinks this is "unfair" then let them either post a review showing us the contents, or purchase a copy sight unseen and then fill us in on its merits (or flaws). At that point I will delete this review.
