This is a great collection of Jimmie Rodgers songs. These are old recordings, so you have to consider that. They are a little "raw & unpolished", but they are very good. I've been to the Jimmie Rodgers' Museum in Meridian, Mississippi (they have an entire park dedicated to him, it even includes a train engine, and 2 cars). Anyway, this is some great early "Southern Country & Rock". Most of the songs contains southern themes. Lynyrd Skynyrd covered Jimmie Rodgers' Blue Yodel (T for Texas - T for Tennessee), and perfected it into about a 10 minute long song. Anyway, this is a great CD, plus it is a historic one. If you like "roots" type music, you should love this one, and in that context, I highly recommend it. Thanks!!!

I like to go back in time, and listen to the way it was. The stories told by his songs are living history.

This is a re-mastered CD of Jimmie Rodgers... back when Country Music was called "Hillbilly Music". It's a great CD, but very "politically incorrect"! I LOVE IT!!! ... Marty
