AllMusic Review by

Born in 1904 in Mt. Eden Kentucky, Cliff Carlisle was raised in tobacco country. He drew on songs he heard growing up and wrote a number of his own incorporating themes of the old West. His style is uptempo with a lot of yodeling and Hawiian guitar licks. He performed on the radio in the '30s and with his brother. These LPs collect his rare original recordings.
