More from country music's dark past, these incredibly rare recordings were made between 1929 and 1934. Reeves cloaked himself in obscurity, wandering from town to town, recording infrequently and performing at local radio stations. He sang about his hobo's life in his songs. He recorded the original Hobo's Lullaby, later popularized by Arlo Guthrie, and, accompanying himself on the guitar, recorded a total of 28 songs (all here), like The Drifter, Blue Undertaker Blues, The Texas Drifter's Warning, The Cowboy's Prayer, and The Kidnapped Baby. His incredible story is also revealed at last in the text.
