The last word on the first name in Western group harmony!

Includes the original versions of such hallowed tunes as Tumbling Tumbleweeds; Cool Water; (Happy) Roving Cowboy; Empty Saddles; Way Out There; One More Ride, and So Long to the Red River Valley, plus all of Roy Rogers' solo recordings from 1937 to 1942. And you better buckle up your saddle, Western fans, because 52 of these 182 songs are unissued takes or recordings! Ranger Doug of Riders in the Sky provides the book-length essay and track-by-track analysis inside the 160-page, LP-sized tome. An instant classic boxed set from Bear Family!
