Description

Jimmie Davis Collection 1929 - 1947 on CD

Jimmie Davis was one of the most popular and respected hillbilly singers of the 1930s, a natural inheritor, along with likes of Gene Autry, of the mantle of the great Jimmie Rodgers and who influenced a generation of artists whose work is now part of what is called Americana. This collection is an anecdotal selection of recordings from his prolific output through two decades, during which time he also made his mark in the political arena as Governor of Louisiana, uniquely combining his musical and political personas to their mutual benefit. The aim of the collection is simply to provide an entertaining and representative cross-section of his work through what was probably the core creative period of his career, as well as being the material which was the most influential on his contemporaries and the generation of country stars who followed. Jimmie Davis was one of the artists that bridged the gap between the rural country blues and hillbilly music of the 30s and the commercial country and western styles of the 1950s. We hope this collection is a fitting tribute to the contribution he made to the genre.
