Best of Jimmie Rodgers is a 12-track budget-priced collection that features some of his biggest hits, including "Honeycomb," "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine," "Oh-Oh, I'm Falling In Love Again" and "The Wizard." Although there are better collections available, this isn't a bad choice for casual fans on a budget.
1990 Version Had "Child Of Clay"
Rhino has a deservedly excellent reputation, but for some reason, they deleted two songs for this version versus the 1990 issue: "It's Over" and "Child of Clay." Jimmie Rodgers performed "Child of Clay" on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on CBS in 1967, and it was a superb moment. Shame on Rhino for deleting these last two songs!
This album should be in everyones' collection. It is upbeat, fun, and catchy. Great story songs that you can't help singing along.
Jimmie Rodgers is a Memorable Tenor Pop/Folk Singer-Songwriter
The iTunes description confuses Jimmie F. Rodgers (whose album this is) with the early country singer of the 1920's and 30's with the same name. Jimmie F. Rodgers was one of the most popular singers on the radio in the late 1950s and early 1960s. His amazing good looks and catchy songs were quite a package, but if you ever doubt the depth of his talent and the purity of his voice, listen to the theme song from "The Long Hot Summer." I'm so glad to see new releases of some of his old albums.
