Product Description

(6-CD LP-sized box set with 60-page book) He was country music’s first superstar, and anyone who cherishes the unique combination of music that made up the Jimmie Rodgers style will need this set. Jimmie Rogers influenced as many singers before World War II as Lefty Frizzell and Hank Williams did afterwards. You simply cannot understand country music without knowing the self-styled Singing Brakeman inside out. The recordings that shaped country music are here: In The Jailhouse Now, T For Texas, Waiting For A Train, Never No Mo’ Blues, Desert Blues, Carolina Sunshine Girl, Any Old Time, High Powered Mama, My Rough And Rowdy Ways, Moonlight And Skies, Gambling Polka Dot Blues, When The Cactus Is In Bloom, Peach Pickin’ Time In Georgia, all the Blue Yodels, and Jimmie’s songs about the disease that killed him, T.B. Blues and Whippin’ That Old T.B..

This is the only complete edition of Jimmie Rodgers’ work, and the only edition carefully engineered from the original metal parts. It includes the movie soundtrack, some previously unissued alternate takes, the Hank Snow overdubs, and a fabulous newly researched bio with unpublished photos. Country music starts here. ESSENTIAL!
