• Pee Wee KING & His Golden West Cowboys - Western Swing Get Together

Although Pee Wee King remained leader of a very popular Western Swing band well into the 1950s, eventually the Rock ‘N’ Roll craze spelt the end for his kind of music. At the end of the 1950s, he broke up his band but continued to tour with Redd Stewart in Minnie Pearl’s Roadshow, continuing to run the show after she retired in 1964 until 1968. In the 1970s, he devoted himself to business interests which included a booking agency and music publishing (he had been involved in the writing of more than 400 songs). In 1974, he was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Presented here are rare studio recordings from the 1950s, showcasing the very polished Western Swing style of Pee Wee King and His Golden West Cowboys, with King’s own accordion much in evidence and the Stewart boys dividing the vocals.
