CD Reviews

A fantastic album with some unearthed gems!
Darren Thornton | Watson, LA USA | 01/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Roy Rogers remains a beloved American hero. He basically played himself. This album includes some wonderful recordings. There are a few older cuts from the 40s and 50s on RCA. But most of the recordings are from the 60s and 70s on Capitol. Dale Evans is on two cuts. There are only a few cowboy songs on this collection. Most are of a country vein. Some of the best cuts are the previously unreleased songs. Where have they been? How come they were in the vaults so long? My favorite is Sunday Kind Of Love. Contrary to some descriptions, Hoppy, Gene, and Me isn't on this album. My beefs are very few. Some information about the recordings, especially the "new stuff," would have been nice. As with too many great albums, you wish it was longer. The album ends with a goodbye from one of his radio shows. You hear a little of Tumbling Tumbleweeds. This is a good introduction to Roy Rogers' outstanding singing and yodeling. There is one Gospel song. Dale Evans said that she wrote The Bible Tells Me So in a few minutes. It was the title song of their debut album with Capitol."
Ride Down Happy Trails!

"This CD takes the listener on a pleasure ride down memory lane. Whether reminiscent of the Old West, or dominated by romance, humor or inspiration, all of its melodies are enjoyable. This is a great CD for all lifelong Saddle Pals."
