The Sons Of The Pioneers brightened the lives of radio listeners during the depression years, their name and ethos conjuring up the spirit of the old American West and they endured as a much-loved group for many years to come. Songs such as "Tumbling Tumbleweed" became Western standards and made this group's name synonymous with the country music of this era. This lavishly presented 4CD set presents the cream of their studio recordings from the '30s then picks up the story again after the end of WWII when the group's notoriety took them to performances at Carniege Hall and TV appearances with the likes of Perry Como. Also included in the package is a comprehensive booklet with liner notes telling the band's story, a discography and rare photographs. One of the first of our Properbox sets to be issued with brand new packaging - a slimline box but with the same high quality music, liner notes and photographs that have made this series such a success.
