It's no surprise that history defines Pee Wee King and the Golden West Cowboys by their hits: The immortal "Tennessee Waltz" written in 1947 by King and singer/fiddler Redd Stewart, "Slow Poke" and "Bonaparte's Retreat". But that's not the whole story. As one of America's great country show bands, their scope encompassed Ballads, Polkas, Pop, Country and Novelties; along with driving up-tempo Blues, Rocking Country and Boogies. That flexibility pleased country fans and audiences who wouldn't go within 25 miles of a country stage show. It gave them TV stardom in Louisville, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Chicago in the 1950s and a short lived 1955 ABC network program. This great set offers 30 blazing samples of Pee Wee and the Cowboys at their hottest, including 1947's furious "Ten Gallon Boogie", their takes on the 1950 Johnnie Lee Wills hit "Rag Mop", "Birmingham Bounce" and the "Dragnet" TV theme and many more plus an essay by Rich Kienzle.
