Product Description

Those who collect early Gene Autry records will be quite familiar with Long, who joined Autry on many of his sessions, including his very first record (for Victor) and his huge hit, the title song of this album. Long also made some records on his own and with his 14-year old daughter Beverly—recorded in 1930 and 1933 for the Gennett and Victor labels, most of these are extremely rare and this is the first time we have seen many of these on CD. As evident on the 22 songs presented here, Long’s style was reminiscent of both Jimmie Rodgers and Autry: a few cuts are definitely in the Rodgers mold, complete with yodel and guitar runs. Others feature two guitars, one of them played slide style. The songs are mostly of the sentimental type like MY OLD COTTAGE HOME, CRADLE OFR MY DREAMS, THE OLD FOLKS BACK HOME, THE OLD CHURCH CHOIR, and TWO LITTLE ORPHANS.
