JIMMIE RODGERS (1897-1933, born James Charles Rodgers in Meridian, Mississippi), who has no relation to Jimmie F. Rodgers, went against the grain in the 1920s and 1930s, fusing hillbilly, gospel, jazz, blues, cowboy, folk and even pop music at a time when most country singers sang only mountain music. Many consider him, as this cover says, "The Father of Country Music". JIMMIE F. RODGERS, born James Frederick Rodgers in Camas, Washington in 1933, was a country singer, but don't tell that to the rock fans that bought his albums in the 1950s. Rodgers combined a high, sweet voice, good beats, and rock-influenced arrangements with more traditional country elements like and acoustic guitar and updates of folk songs to land Top 10 hits on the Pop Singles charts almost as often as the Country Singles charts. Between 1955 and 1966, he had a total of eight Top 10 singles, which were often on the Country Singles and Pop Singles Charts and even the Black Singles and Adult Contemporary charts in a single year: Honeycomb (1957, No. 1 on both the Black Singles and Pop Singles charts and No. 7 on the Country Singles charts), Kisses Sweeter Than Wine (1957), Make Me a Miracle (1958), Oh-Oh, I'm Falling In Love Again (1958), Secretly (1958) and It's Over (1966). Lightly toned and soiled, otherwise in fine condition.
