That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine
When Gene started out, he was a dead ringer for Jimmie Rodgers—but before long, his voice and his songs started taking their own distinct shape, and America had its Singing Cowboy. This deluxe 9-disc box is the first set to collect ALL of Gene’s surviving 1929–33 breakthrough sides for Gennett, Victor and Columbia as well as a number of "dime store" recordings for ARC, 225 tracks that include many a classic as well as tons of rarities—in fact, most of these songs have never been on CD and 20 of these performances were never released at all! A hardcover book with a new essay, discography and rare photos rounds out another Bear Family triumph in American music collecting. Includes such evergreens as Gene's million-selling duet with Jimmy Long on "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine," plus "My Old Pal of Yesterday," "Missouri Is Calling," "The Yellow Rose of Texas," "The Last Round-Up" and more. 659 minutes! Bear Family.
