Sons of the Pioneers: "Cool Water"

Recorded in June 1959.
The Sons of the Pioneers were arguably the godfathers of Country & Western music.
Founded in 1933 by Leonard Slye (aka Roy Rogers) the group was greatly popular during the '40s, '50s, and '60s when everything Western was "all that."
Even if you are not specifically a fan of western music styling, you cannot honestly deny the essential musicality and primal simplicity of this classic music.

This LP ended up with a fan in Pennsylvania.
