Various Artists

This double-CD set is the definitive historical cowboy and western music anthology. The recordings herein date from 1925 (Carl T. Sprague’s best-selling “When the Work’s All Done This Fall”) to 1980 (“Cowboy Song” by Riders in the Sky). The twenty-six other tracks on this collection fill in the gaps in between.

If it’s classic recordings by the well-known western artists that you want, they’re here: Tex Ritter's “A-Ridin' Old Paint,” Patsy Montana’s million selling “I Want To Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart,” “My Dear Old Arizona Home” by Rex Allen, and, of course, Gene Autry’s “Back in the Saddle Again.” The Texas Playboys are represented by “Cowboy Stomp,” while the Sons of the Pioneers’ 1940 Orthoacoustic transcription of “One More Ride” appears on this album. There are a lot of great songs by lesser-known figures, too; Haywire Mac’s rousing “The Old Chisholm Trail,” Marc William’s moody “Sioux Indians,” Tex Owens’ “Cattle Call,” and Wilf Carter’s “Little Old Log Shack I Always Call My Own” are all cowboy classics.

This collection was produced by Charlie Seemann of the Country Music Foundation, and comes with a 24-page booklet with extensive notes concerning the recordings, and a beautiful C.M. Russell painting on the cover. If you have any interest in hearing some great old cowboy songs and recordings, don’t pass this one up. —Cowboy Magazine
