Chippeha!: The Essential Dixie Cowboy, 1947-1957


Chippeha!: The Essential Dixie Cowboy, 1947-1957 by Revenant Records at Your Free Album. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. This is uncommonly strange, anachronistic American music. But unlike the records collected on Harry Smith's celebrated Anthology, this music was weird back during its day, too. Nobody was playing cowboy ballads after World War II, and what's with that Hawaiian-style guitar playing? Collapse Jimi Hendrix's ''singing'' guitar (well ... actually, Carman could barely stay in tune, but he did have his own unique, expressive style) with Roy Rogers's wandering cowboy shtick, Western swing with hillbill

Product Description & Reviews

This is uncommonly strange, anachronistic American music. But unlike the records collected on Harry Smith's celebrated Anthology, this music was weird back during its day, too. Nobody was playing cowboy ballads after World War II, and what's with that Hawaiian-style guitar playing? Collapse Jimi Hendrix's "singing" guitar (well ... actually, Carman could barely stay in tune, but he did have his own unique, expressive style) with Roy Rogers's wandering cowboy shtick, Western swing with hillbilly country, and throw in a thousand lightning-speed allusions to history and daily sounds, then add a couple of tunes in Carman's native Cherokee, and you're beginning to get an idea of how essential, if not always musically "perfect," this collection of weird-school country music is. --Mike McGonigal
