Memories Of Jimmie RodgersThe death of Jimmie Rodgers was as big a deal to country music in the Thirties as the death of Elvis was to rock "n" roll. Now here"s a selection of tributes.

Seventeen other titles recorded between 1933 and 1937 are also here; these include Gene Autry"s Good Luck Ol" Pal , When Jimmie Rodgers Said Goodbye , The Life Of Jimmie Rodgers and The Death of Jimmie Rodgers , W. Lee O"Daniels" Memories of Jimmie Rodgers , Bradley Kincaid"s The Death of Jimmie Rodgers , Ernest Tubb"s The Last Thoughts Of Jimmie Rodgers , and Mrs. Jimmie Rodgers" We Miss Him When The Evening Shadows Fall . The tribute is rounded out with recordings from the 1957 Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Festival in Meridian, Mississippi starring Ernest Tubb, the Wilburn Brothers, Hank Snow, and Jim Reeves.
