In this CD, you get to hear all eight tracks recorded by Ken Maynard - Hollywood's First Singing Cowboy - in his single professional recording session for Columbia in 1930. Plus five previously unissued tracks. And you get to see dozens of photos and illustrations, including many never-seen-before photos from Ken Maynard's personal archive. And you get to read an 80-page booklet recounting Ken Maynard's life and times as a musician, Western film star, cowboy, circus rider and Wild West showman.
This collection represents the entire recorded output of Ken Maynard, Hollywood's First Singing Cowboy. By the time he warbled The Lone Star Trail in Universal's 'The Wagon Master' in 1929, Ken Maynard had starred in over thirty Western films, ridden in rodeos and cowboy competitions across the country, and performed as a rider and roper with the likes of the Ringling Brothers, Pawnee Bill and Buffalo Bill Cody.
Ken Maynard's high and lonesome twang still echoes today - an original, uniquely American voice of the early Twentieth Century.
