Editorial Reviews

Over 100 unreleased recordings from Gene Autry's TV show! Airing 91 times between 1950 and 1956, The Gene Autry Show blended Gene's trademark elements of action, humor and music into one half-hour of homespun entertainment, featuring Gene's performances of his classic cowboy tunes with new arrangements and a number of rare songs he only did for his television audience. So this 3-CD set not only includes Autry standards like Back in the Saddle Again; Mexicali Rose; Sing Me a Song of the Saddle , and Home on the Range , but also tunes like Along the Navajo Trail; When It's Night Time in Nevada; Billy Boy , and Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen, that he never sang anywhere else.

One has to wonder if Varese label chief Cary E. Mansfield wears Gene Autry memorabilia to staff meetings and mastering sessions. There's no evidence of his clinking spurs to be heard here, yet Varese's lengthy catalog of Autry releases, topped by this spectacular triple-disc set, is clearly the work of someone with a rather fanatical interest. This encyclopedic release complements earlier issues covering Autry's film soundtracks (including a volume with teen co-star Mary Lee), a collection of Autry's collaborations with singing groups such as Sons of the Pioneers, and a disc of Autry's Christmas recordings.
These tracks, recorded over a six year period (1950-1955), represent every song Autry sang on his popular television show. Included are previously unreleased tracks, rare renditions, and just enough program continuity (dialog and sound effects) to set the context. The recordings are clean and well recorded, taken directly from Autry's archives. Most are without background sound effects, though atmospheric hoofbeats on the trail (could it really be Champion?) can be heard here and there, and bits of dialog are left intact on some intro and outros. Only a very few cuts (e.g., "When It's Night Time in Nevada," "Red River Valley" and "A Heart As Big As Texas") are incomplete, fading in or out.
The fades and dialog never get in the way of appreciating the music, and some snippets, like those of comedian Pat Butram, are truly revelatory. Though Butram's distinctive voice had appeared on Autry's radio program, the television seeds of his Green Acres character, Mr. Haney, are found here, along with a deeper insight as to just how satirical Green Acres really was.

I am a big fan of Gene Autry's music and his TV show....this is the perfect collection. It takes me back to when I sat on the floor and watched his progam. The songs are clear and the added background clippity clop of the hoof beats make you visualize riding a horse with Gene right down the road.
I would definitly recommend this collection to any fan of good cowboy music.
Thanks Varese.

A good, complete collection of songs from Gene's TV show. There are backgound sounds on some songs, like the sounds of riding a horse but it does not detract from the songs but instead enhances the atmosphere of the recordings. There are a couple songs that could have been eliminated due to excessive talk over from other characters but overall this is a must for Autry fans and quite enjoyable.

I must completely agree with that other reviewer. I downloaded this set instead of buying it, so I am glad I didn't waste my money. This is so bad... I don't know why this even was released. I would much prefer sticking to Autry's Columbia works and his studio recordings instead of this disappointment. I'm not very happy with the TV collections that have been made available on Autry as I wish this company would reissue all his studio recordings like with Bear did on his early works.

I am a big fan of Gene Autry and western music. When I saw this box set of 1950s television recordings, I snapped it up and couldn't wait to listen to the music. I was never so disheartened! Since all recordings were made in the Fifties when audio tape was being used, I looked forward to hearing clean and crisp recordings of one of my favorite cowboy singers.
As I hoped, the recordings proved crisp and many of the songs compare favorably to Autry's Columbia recordings of the period. And Mr. Autry is in good form. Unfortunately, the clean, crisp recordings of Autry's voice counts for nothing. Because Autry's beautiful singing voice is trampled upon by character dialogue and sound effects on virtually every song. Typical disruptions include: hoofbeats, squeaking leather, horse whinnies, Pat Buttram's sneezes, footsteps, horse snorts, overlapping dialogue, cornball jokes, and even crackling campfires.
Even more annoying, the songs are cluttered with dialogue from various characters. Characters talk (1)before (2)during and (3) after the songs. Equally disconcerting is the fact that a great number of the songs are much too short in length. Many recordings end abruptly where a musical bridge would normally occur--and many songs seem to have been poor selections. Some songs are outright silly or childish. Other songs reflect simplistic, cookie-cutter writing. Some songs seem to be missing whole verses.
This is undoubtedly the worst music purchase I have made in five years. I'll never listen to this music again. I have lost all respect for Varese Sarabande for marketing such flawed recordings.
