Dozens of country, western, and pop numbers that'll have you scratching your head wondering why this remarkable performer's work has been long out of print.

Full Description

It's a barn burner, folks!! Pee Wee King's Country Hoedown includes ALL 51 of the tunes Pee Wee, Redd Stewart, and their gang cut for the Standard Transcription Service in 1952. Includes an un-issued version of the 1951 #1 country/pop crossover hit "Slowpoke," plus dozens of other country, western, and pop numbers that'll have you scratching your head wondering why this remarkable performer's work has been long out of print.

In addition to penning "Tennessee Waltz" and over 400 other tunes, King enjoyed a long and varied career as an instrumentalist, bandleader, actor, and businessman. Read all about it in the extensive liner notes by Bill Malone, author of Country Music U.S.A and dean of country historians. Along with exclusive camp-classic artwork from Pee Wee's self-produced film of the same name, Country Hoedown finally gives this unsung country legend his due.

Short Description
  • It's tough to resist music this smart and fast on its feet. [Country Hoedown] begs to be listened to on its own terms, as extremely agreeable dance music from an era when different types of pop and folk were bleeding into one another and dancing was a national pastime... This music is full of surprises.
