Cowboy singing sensation Jimmy Wakely is back in the saddle for more six-gun thrills and excitement in this straight-shooting, hard-riding collection. One of the last of the cowpoke crooners, Wakely began his Western career as a country vocalist, providing musical support for Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy and other screen wranglers before ramrodding his own series of shoot-‘em-ups, made for Monogram Pictures between 1944 and 1949. Accompanied by sidekicks John “Dusty” James, Lee “Lasses” White and Dub “Cannonball” Taylor, Wakely warbled his way through 28 oaters, and this action-packed volume ropes in six of his best, including Silver Trails (1948), which introduces Jimmy’s old pal – and future Monogram sage star – the lash-cracking hero Whip Wilson!

Probably Wakely's greatest liability was Monogram Pictures. Monogram did not have the capability to promote actors that Republic or Columbia had. What always impressed me about Wakely's films was the presence of good country songs as well; as cowboy songs. Also, he used interesting musicians like Wesley Tuttle, Johnny Bond, Ray Whitley, and Colleen Summers before she teamed with Les Paul and became Mary Ford. There are plenty of 8-Western faces in the films, but the Monogram ranch is overused. As usual, the transfers of sound and image by Warner Archives are excellent as well the service by Amazon.
