2017 collection. Politician, actor, blues/hillbilly/country singer, talent scout and occasional songwriter – there really wasn’t much that the late Jimmie Davis couldn’t and didn’t turn his hand to with great success during his 100-plus years on Earth. Widely known for being the original performer of such timeless musical standards as ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and ‘Nobody’s Darlin’ But Mine’, Davis cut literally hundreds of sides during almost 60 years as an active recording artist. He made his first records in his late 20s and was still recording at the age of almost 80! This new Jasmine collection focuses on the man’s first quarter century of recording, and offers an all-encompassing (and carefully chosen) representation of the wide range of material he recorded in the 1930s and 1940s. Naturally it features Davis’ previously mentioned career songs, alongside 28 other fine tracks that embrace everything from Hawaiian music to western ballads to double entendre blues. As an introduction to his vast repertoire, it’s pretty hard to beat. Beautifully remastered from the best available sources as always, and with a booklet that tells the full story of this amazing man, a true foundation artist of modern country music.
