Operatic Cowboys-508
CD D 508

OPERATIC COWBOYS From The Early 30s. BACM CD 508


No one could accuse us of not trying to ‘Cover all bases’ in our trawls through the historic roots of Country Music! Here are some long lost recordings – from the era when silent movies were on the way out and the movie makers were experimenting with soundtracks to find the right sound to go with their cowboy movies. This was before the explosion of popular Singing Cowboys with the likes of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers and some of the early singers featured here had switched from the worlds of opera and musicals. The Fred Scott recordings are especially rare - recovered from an old tape, possibly the only one in the world?
