Guide Review - Bob Nolan - The Sound of a Pioneer
Bet you didn't know some of Bob's songs were first wrote as poems for his high school newspaper. Later they became Nolan's songs, and although he decided to pursue a musical career in 1929, he found his success in 1931. He became part of a group called the Rocky Mountaineers Hillbilly Group, with a guy named Leonard Slye who later became known as Roy Rogers. Later, when joined by others, they became the Sons of the Pioneers.
Classics on this album are "Cool Water" and the famous "Tumbling Tumbleweeds." A favorite of mine is remarkable, and you won't believe a 71 year old is singing "Can You Hear Those Pioneers." His voice, so pure and so easy to listen to, maybe it's because I remember listening to this kind of music while I was growing up. Don't miss out on this one to add to your country collection.
