Rock Masters: Jimmie Rodgers

You need to get someone older than 40 to compile some of these. In the 1920s, there was a great old guy who sang raspy old hill-country blues and yodeled a lot, in a pre-Hank Williams sort of way, and his name was Jimmie Rodgers -- Jimmie with an "ie" and Rodgers with a "d" in it. About the time he was collecting Social Security (remember Social Security?), a young guy with wavy hair hit the emerging rock 'n' roll scene with some great and lively songs, like "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine." His name ALSO was Jimmie Rodgers. They are different singers, from different eras. You've combined them as if they are one singer in all your listings, except for this album.The more recent Jimmie Rodgers had outstanding recordings of "Sloop John B," as well as "Blue Bayou," and a unique ballad called "It's Over," all on albums. I only see "It's Over" amid your listings. If all three were on a compilation, along with "Make Me A Miracle," and "Tucumcari," it would deserve 5 stars.

The "Singing Brakeman" and the "Mississippi Blue Yodeler," whose six-year career was cut short by tuberculosis, became the first nationally known star of country music and the direct influence of many later performers, from Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, and Hank Williams to Lefty Frizzell and Merle Haggard. Rodgers sang about...
