"Roy and Dale are great, but the Mitch Miller orchestra and choral backup are not to my taste. It sounds a bit like Lawrence Welk. One note: I think this is not the complete Roy & Dale cowboy songs album that was released in the early 1960s. The 1963 album "16 Great Songs of the Old West" was re-released in 1998 with all 16 songs. This CD has only 10 of those 16 songs, but then this CD is also cheaper. I was looking for a couple of songs (that my 3 year old likes) that are on the 1963 album (and its re-release), but not on this CD."

"Sorry, Boys!Although I thought the world of Roy & Dale, this album won't cut the mustard. I only had to listen to the previews to tell you that. This is not one of the better Sons of The Pioneers with Roy & Dale albums. This is one of those "times are changin' so let's slick this one up" albums. They slicked it up alright. Slid right outta my fingers and back to the rack.
Sorry, but I like the albums that have the "old" sound to 'em. Like they were singin' on the trail...not in the studio, with all those fancy voice enhancers. Just my two cents worth. Vaya Con Dios,
Roy and Dale: Always!

"If you are a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans fan, you might want to add this one to your collection. The songs are vintage King of the Cowboys and Queen of the West material. The backgrounds are sweet and maybe a little too "orchestrated" for my cup of tea, but the vocals are crisp and of excellent quality. Dale is featured with equal time on the C.D., and her voice is one of the most beautiful you'll ever hear. Roy's "Colorado Trail" is,in my opinion, worth the price of the album. I've often wondered what the world would be like if there were no Roy Rogers. Thanks to recordings like this one, we'll never have to find out! So, saddle up, there's open range ahead--where the air is clear, the sage is always in bloom, and cowboy music comes drifting through the gloamin'. Would-be cow punchers of all ages will like this collection. Trust me."
