GENE AUTRY “That’s How I Got My Start”

23  TRACKS on one CD

This compilation of Gene Autry songs concentrates on the earlier part of his career, with the Jimmie Rodgers influence much in evidence. The mono recordings retain their original atmosphere, but their undoubted charm remains. Especially worthy of note is the final song, the plaintive At Mail Call Today, co-written with Fred Rose whilst Gene was undertaking his patriotic duty in the Air Force during World War II and which struck a chord with many sadly jilted serviceman.
