  1. Frank,
    I don't have any Roy Rogers and I'm not sure I'd seek out a disc devoted strictly to him (even though he has a decent voice), but as you said, nice steel & electric guitar work and fiddle playing from Cooley. I've got some Sons of the Pioneers' tracks, but have no idea if Roy Rogers is on any of them.

    Did he do any hillbilly blues-style tunes early on in his career?
