Gene Autry – Sings Jimmie Rodgers. BACM CD 665

Our 9th Gene Autry compilation takes us back to the first stage of Autry’s career when his style was closely modelled on that of his idol, the legendary Jimmie Rodgers. We have pulled together nearly all of his Rodgers covers, recorded between 1929 and 1933 under various names. He could get astonishingly close to the original when he wanted to but could also create a fresh sound – nice version of Carolina Sunshine Girl which strips out the jazz band and just has Autry with his own fine guitar backing. This is the first of a BACM mini series of the songs of Jimmie Rodgers recorded by other performers of the era.
