Al Dexter's biggest success came during the war years and in the wake of his "Pistol Packin' Mama" hit in 1942, but the Texan singer and songwriter had been releasing material for close to a decade before that, mixing blues, early honky tonk and stripped-down western swing in an accessible style that was sturdy and dependable, if hardly ever flashy. This collection from Jasmine Records brings together two dozen of these early sides recorded in separate sessions in 1936, 1939 and 1941, including "Honky Tonk Blues" (a completely different song than the one Hank Williams recorded under the same title), "Bring It On Home to Me," the solid and even funky "When We Go Honky Tonkin'" and the humorous "Alimony Blues."
