BIG SLIM ALIFF – Footprints In The Snow. BACM CD 515


Hank Snow fans will have come across the name “Big Slim, The Lone Cowboy”, credited in Hank’s autobiography as having been a big influence on his early career and style, and helping him get started in the US. Snow of course went on to international fame, selling millions of records; but “Big Slim”, although remaining a mainstay of the West Virginia Wheeling Jamboree from 1936 to 1966, never made the big time outside his home state. He was an authentic cowboy / rancher, and was in huge demand at rodeos and fairs, appearing with his trained horse. He made some superb recordings, mainly just Slim and guitar, and has songwriting credits on many songs that have become country classics such as Sunny Side Of The Mountain and Patanio The Pride Of The Plains. A big talent, nowadays undeservedly forgotten and BACM are pleased to release this collection – 23 titles from various sources.
