"As someone who was born in Texas in 1944 and lived their until age 12, this music is very nostalgic for me. I saw several Tex Ritter movies as a kid -- as well as those of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers -- and my mother often sang the songs of these great singing cowboys while working around the house. So, hearing them again takes me WAY back.
This CD is discontinued, but I was able to get it from one of Amazon's associated dealers. It's a great collection of western songs by one of the greats. Was his voice great? No. Were many of the songs kind of hokey? Yes. Is it wonderful? You bet.
There's not a bad track on the CD -- although each listener will of course have his/her favorites. I like "Ride, Ride, Ride" a lot, and "Sing, Cowboy, Sign" but I just love "High, Wide, and Handsome" because I can picture my mom singing it. She loved Ol' Tex.
Now I guess I'll actually rent some of Tex's DVDs and maybe even by a few from Amazon!"
