It's no surprise history defines Pee Wee King and the Golden West Cowboys by their hits: the immortal Tennessee Waltz, written in 1947 by King and singer-fiddler Redd Stewart, Slow Poke and Bonaparte's Retreat. But that's not the whole story. As one of America's great country show bands, their scope encompassed ballads, polkas, pop, country and novelties - along with driving uptempo blues, rocking country and boogies. That flexibility pleased country fans and audiences who wouldn't go within 25 miles of a country stage show. It gave them TV stardom in Louisville, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Chicago in the 1950s and a short-lived 1955 ABC network program. This CD offers 30 blazing samples of Pee Wee at his hottest.
