Editorial Reviews

To many, Lloyd Estel "Cowboy" Copas is just a footnote to the Patsy Cline legend, having perished in the same plane crash that claimed her life and that of Hawkshaw Hawkins; but what many folks don't realize is that Cope had 14 hits during his lifetime while Patsy had but nine. Clearly, the intervening years have burnished and magnified Patsy's legend; they ve also unjustly neglected this early Grand Ole Opry stalwart.

Now, Real Gone Music has assembled the most comprehensive Cowboy Copas collection to date: two CDs, 30 tracks including every hit and its accompanying, rarely-if-ever-compiled B-side. Cope got his start in Pee Wee King's band, and you can hear a bit of that bandleader's freewheeling approach to country in these songs, but you can also hear a bunch of other influences, too. In fact, as Colin Escott puts it in the accompanying liner notes, "His records were so personable and so unlike any others from that day and time. Not honky tonk, not bluegrass, not western swing, not hillbilly, not pop crossover, they could be labelled Cowboy Copas records."

Offering both his complete hits and the rare B-sides, along with thorough annotation and photos from the King-Starday label archives, this Cowboy Copas collection is the one to have. Essential country spanning the years from 1946 to 1963, the year Cope died.

Cowboy Copas had 14 country hits in two spells, 8 of them between 1946 and 1952, 4 between 1960 and 1963. All are included here together with their B-sides.

His career had seemingly ended with a barren spell after his 1951 hit 'Tis sweet to be remembered, but then he he had an unexpected hit with Alamam', which not only made #1 on the country chat but stayed there for three months.

Even that didn't do as much for his career as he hoped, because he only had three more hits before he became a victim of the most famous plane crash in country music history.

The writer of the booklet notes points out that Cowboy Copas had more hits than Patsy Cline did at the time, and contrasts the attention subsequently given to Patsy with the lack of attention given to the others, I think it might have something to do with Patsy being a rising star at the time.

If you enjoy traditional country music as it was in the forties and fifties, you are likely to enjoy this.

This a great collection. I have been getting as many of the older country artists as I can and love the music from that era. This collection covers a ,lot of ground. I remember from when I was young hearing many of these and some I had not heard before. Cowboy Copas is one of the great country entertainers from from the Golden years of country.
