Douglas B. Green is a music historian and performer. There is information in this book that I have not found in other books about the singing cowboys
Douglas B. There is information in this book that I have not found in other books about the singing cowboys. All in all the book is very well worth it's money for what it offers. What I do find disappointing however is the fact that the book does not quite live up to it's title. For example the book covers a lot of information about artistes who had nothing to do with 'singing in a saddle', such as radio and stage singers only, a good many of whom either died a long time ago.
Singing in the Saddle book. A singing cowboy himself, Douglas B. Green (better known as Ranger Doug from the group Riders In The Sky) is uniquely suited to write the story of the singing cowboy. He has been collecting information and interviews on western music, films, and performers for nearly thirty years.
Singing in the Saddle is praiseworthy merely on the basis of Green’s carefully written biographies. But Green (and, it should be noted, The Country Music Foundation Press and Vanderbilt University Press) have gone the extra mile by including several important ancillary materials that further enhance the value of the text. While Green occasionally has difficulty seeing the big picture, Singing in the Saddle should facilitate a more careful consideration of the singing cowboy in future studies of all American popular music.
Green's Singing in the Saddle provides an articulate wide-ranging history of the Singing Cowboy from its origins in western folk culture to the triumph of the B Westerns. An excellent introduction and a must for country music collections.
