• Jimmy WAKELY - From Cowboy To Country

In parallel with his screen appearances, Wakely also had a thriving recording career and on occasion could pen a useful song. A good selection of hits are featured here, such as "Song Of The Sierras", his 1948 number one Country hit "I Love You So Much It Hurts", from the same year "Mine All Mine", and from 1949 "Till The End Of The World" (a duet with an unidentified female partner) and "I Wish I Had A Nickel". In the same year, Capitol producer Lee Gillette teamed Wakely up with 'Pop' singer Margaret Whiting, resulting in another number one with "Slippin' Around", and the B-side, "Wedding Bells", also showing strongly. "Slippin' Around" crossed over to the Pop charts where again it hit the top spot, and further duets with Miss Whiting did them both proud.
