Public Cowboy #1: The Music of Gene Autry

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Riders in the Sky cut this record in the wake of their performing a Gene Autry medley in a television appearance with Autry himself in the audience. The songs are done reverently but with a real sense of fun, essentially the same balancing act that has made them a success on stage and television. Their main innovations are the harmony singing, which works well throughout, and a jazzy approach to Jimmie Rodgers' "Can't Shake the Sands of Texas from My Shoes." Autry's versions have held up magnificently well, but this loving tribute album is a necessary addition to any fan's collection.
