The Yazoo label has done a beautiful job in preserving & presenting this great sampling of songs of the west, most of them recorded commercially in the 1920s. There are 23 recordings here by the key cowboy artists--Jules Allen, Harry McClintock, Carl Sprague, Ken Maynard, Arthur Miles, Dick Devall, Billie Maxwell, etc., plus some I losely related southerners (Tylor's Ky. Boys,. Watts & Wilson, Lonesome Luke etc). They well document the romance, strength, and especially the independent spirit of the early cowboys.
