Spade Cooley was for several years one of the biggest stars of the subgenre of Country music called 'Western Swing'.
He wasn't the biggest as that accolade belonged to Bob Wills but he got close with a string of exciting performances on singles that rocked before that word was in popular use.
This collection of some of his single releases is named after his greatest hit, 'Shame On You'
The recordings, the hits and the jukebox favourites feature other artists who worked through Cooley's band to become stars on their own. Tex Williams being the most famous.
These 28 wonderful recordings are amongst his greatest recordings between 1945 and 1952.
Although he continued to record his major claim to fame came with his TV and Radio appearances.
The fully detailed liner notes explain in detail his downfall as a popular entertainer.
