Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews

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!

Collection must

This album should be in everyones' collection. It is upbeat, fun, and catchy. Great story songs that you can't help singing along.

I'm so glad to see new releases of some of his old albums.

His brass plaque in the Country Music Hall of Fame reads, "Jimmie Rodgers' name stands foremost in the country music field as the man who started it all." This is a fair assessment. 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.
