JIMMIE RODGERS SNOW – Treasures Untold. BACM CD 637

Son of Canadian legend Hank Snow, Jimmie Rodgers Snow began his recording career in 1950 on the 4-Star label before joining RCA in 1953. At the time, his dad was RCA’s biggest selling artist and this remained the case up until Elvis Presley arriving on the scene in the mid 1950s. Jimmie hung out with Elvis for a while before the latter’s meteoric rise to fame and Elvis’ recording Love Me was styled on Jimmie’s 1954 version of the song, featured in this collection. Here are most of Jimmie’s Country singles on RCA and as a bonus, a number of his earliest recordings, early 1950s on the 4 Star Label, recorded as “Jimmie Snow”. Several of the early recordings feature his dad’s distinctive guitar runs – a treat for Hank Snow fans. For me, the outstanding track is the two Snows duetting on When Jimmie Rodgers Said Goodbye, sublime!
