The Rough Guide to Jimmie Rodgers


Jimmie Rodgers was the 'Singing Brakeman', a Mississippi boy who used to work the railroads, done good. With his trademark yodel, he brought so-called hillbilly music into the mainstream. In a life as colourful as the songs he sang, the "father of country music", rose from obscurity to create a new level of international stardom for American music before his tragic early death.

Bonus CD: Country Music Pioneers

A unique collection of tracks which traces the early origins of what we now call 'country music'. From the classic string-band performers and banjo maestros to the assorted oddball elements, this Rough Guide presents a star-studded roll call; The Carter Family, Dock Boggs, Fiddlin' John Carson and Uncle Eck Dunford all appear.
