Fingerprints Music

Of all Hollywood's 'singing cowboys', Tex Ritter, with his tack-plain but sincere bass, sounded most like the genuine article. This 28-track overview of his Capitol recordings spans 1942 to 1957 and a variety of production approaches from the folk spareness of Rye Whiskey in 1946 to the Baroque Western ripeness of Gunsmoke in 1955. On many of his Capitol sides, Tex was supported by such ace Capitol country accompanists as steel guitarist Speedy West and guitar legend Merle Travis.
