Description

Known and loved by all fans of vintage country music, the late Jimmie Skinner is one of the most important singer-songwriters to have emerged from the hillbilly hotbed of Cincinnati, Ohio in the immediate post-WWII years. Sounding a lot like his own hero, the great Ernest Tubb (who later recorded several of Jimmie's songs) Jimmie's simple, uncluttered recordings received much jukebox play and eventually considerable chart action, too.

This Jasmine compilation focuses on the most commercially-productive years of Jimmie's five-decade-plus career - the years between the mid-50s and the early 60s when he was a frequent visitor to the Billboard 'Country And Western' charts and before his simple, earthy hillbilly stylings were elbowed aside to make room for more of 'The Nashville Sound'.

Included among the tracks are several of Jimmie's best-known songs among the hundreds he composed between the mid-30s and his death from a heart attack in 1979. Timeless classics such as 'Will You Be Satisfied That Way', 'I Found My Girl In The U.S.A' and our title track are among those that will forever ensure Jimmie's membership in the Country Songwriters' Hall Of Fame.

As with all of Jasmine's country and hillbilly CDs, this project once again puts important music into a deserved historical perspective and refocuses attention on an artist who has been somewhat ill-served by the single CD reissue market up to now. And as always, the audio is remastered from the best possible sources and the booklet features a comprehensive biography.
