JIMMY WAKELY "The Melody Kid" - CD AJA 5446
28 Original recordings
featuring MARGARET WHITING
Jimmy Wakely was one of a very select band of singing cowboys who, alongside Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Rex Allen and lesser lights, kept several generations of kids enthralled week on week at the local cinema. Like Roy Rogers, Jimmy first appeared on screen as the "musical act" to the main star, Jimmy's case under the name of the "Jimmy Wakely Trio" with Johnny Bond and Dick Reinhart. His duets with MARGARET WHITING were huge sellers.
