Synopsis

Album Description
On "Last of the Great Singing Cowboys," you get an early glimpse into Rex's versatile meldings of both kinds of music, country and western. There are fast-paced instrumental breakdowns, crooning, velvety ballads, smooth trio harmonies, and story songs. The crack backing band, full of accordion, fiddle, guitar, swinging standing up bass, and other sundry sounds, reflect what a hotbed of musical talent Chicago was immediately after World War II.

CD Reviews

Western music done superbly by Rex Allen
Marshall Stewart | Fort Worth, Texas | 02/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The recordings are simply outstanding. Rex' voice is the best. His style and honesty come through, big time. I just wish he had continued to record, but I understand the reasons why he, most likely, did not. Western/cowboy music has a very loyal, but comparatively small, fan populace. I'm happy to say I'm one of them. I also wish Rex was still with us."
