Jimmy Wakely was one of the last “singing cowboys”. The popular personality combined appearances in western movies with recording country and western music as well as appearing on radio and TV on shows like the Grand Ole Opry. His career started in the late 30s, introduced to the big-time by Gene Autry and from 1939 to 59 he appeared in around 60 films. He was equally prolific on record, making his first albums for Decca in the early 40s before moving to Capitol. This 84-track set comprises selected A & B sides such as One Has My Name (The Other Has My Heart), I Love You So Much It Hurts as well as his No.1 with Margaret Whiting Slippin’ Around.
