Morton ,TexRegal Zonophone Collection vol 2

Tex Morton 1938-1943 Regal Zonophone Collection vol 2 ,47 track dble cd

Tex Morton was born Robert Lane August 30th 1916 in Nelson, New Zealand. He performed and recorded at the age of 16 and left for Australia in 1932. Tex pioneered the travelling country show and toured the world. The showman supreme, he single handedly established the identity of Australasian country music.

After arriving in Australia in 1932 Tex survived by working various jobs and busking.  His breakthrough came with his earliest recordings for the Regal Zonophone label, where he recorded from 1936 - 1943. This 47 track double cd features Tex Mortons recordings from 1938 -43 for Regal Zonophone .

'  Vol. 2 covers 47 songs recorded between the years 1938-1943, a period when Morton's tremendous popularity allowed him to record more original and distinctly Australian compositions than ever before. One of Morton's most famous songs, "I'll Be Hanged (If They're Gonna Hang Me)" is here, alongside songs from the American West, sentimental songs, Australian bush ballads, and yodeling showcases. Morton is on a par with the great names of early American country music, and shows how the rural, working class attitude of hillbilly music could be adopted and advanced by artists around the world.' - allmusic
