Album Review

Although Roy Rogers was one of the most famous singing cowboys of the movies, he was only a modest success as a recording artist, and the budget-priced Home on the Range compilation drawn from his releases as a solo singer and with the Sons of the Pioneers for RCA Victor Records between 1936 and 1947 demonstrates why.
