Red Foley: Old Shep, Recordgs. 1933-50 (6-CD)

6-CD box (LP-size) with 96-page hardcover book, 164 tracks. Playing time approx. 470 mns.

  • The set contains the complete Country Recordings (1933 – 1950)
  • 18 previously unissued performances
  • The hardcover book contains many rare and previously unpublished pictures
  • The set contains the ARC, Decca and the commercially never available World Transcriptions.


During his long career, which spanned more than three decades, few artists have blazed as many trails as Red Foley. He became country music's first 'crossover' artist. He was also the first country singer to be featured on network radio and television programs. Red Foley was hugely popular wherever he went, beginning with his years as 'Rambling Red' on WLS Chicago's 'National Barn Dance,' and continuing with the 'Renfro Valley Barn Dance,' and finally as the genial host of the famed 'Grand Ole Opry' and the landmark television show, 'Ozark Jubilee.'

Red Foley's life was a tragic one. In retrospect, his personal problems seem insurmountable, yet Red Foley's charisma and talent saw him through these troubled times; his many recordings are his finest legacy. Nearly every Nashville-based star of his stature has had his or her story told by now, everyone except Red Foley. This box set and hardcover book document Red Foley's remarkable recording career. Included is every commercial recording made by Red Foley up to 1950, with the exception of his sacred and children's recordings. Featured are his recordings with the Cumberland Ridge Runners, duets with Lulu Belle and Ernest Tubb, and of course, his greatest hits, such as Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy, Smoke On The Water, Old Shep, New Jolie Blonde, Tennessee Saturday Night and Sugarfot Rag.

With the 164 songs on this 6 CD box, Bear Family Records brings together all of his recordings from 1933 – 1950 for the first time. Most of these songs have never been on CD, and many have not been available in any form since their original release 75 years ago, including 18 songs that are issued here for the first time.

The hardcover book contains an essay by Cary Ginell, a discography by Cary Ginell, Dave Sax & Richard Weize and many rare pictures and illustrations,

Artist description "Foley, Red"

Red Foley

In his day, Marty Robbins was country's most versatile vocalist, with a mastery of varied genres few if any singers of succeeding generations have equaled.

He came through a door that Red Foley opened.

Shamefully overlooked in recent decades, Foley was the first country singer to explore his versatility in depth. Whatever the genre, he made it all seem simple. His skills were breathtaking for both their audacity and his comfort within each style. Nothing, it seemed, was beyond Foley's grasp, including the 30 boogies, blues, R&B, swing, Dixieland and even rockers that make up this collection, including a significant duet issued here for the first time.

Music always seemed easy for Foley; life was another matter. At his career peak, he ensnared himself in a morass of self-inflicted scandals and substance abuse. His friend Hank Williams rose fast and shined bright before his final flameout at 29. While Foley's rise was slower and he lived twice as long, as his troubles multiplied he became a tragic, even pitiful figure in later years.

Nicknamed for his full head of red hair, Clyde Julian Foley, born June 17, 1910 in Blue Lick, Kentucky, was the son of Ben and Kate Foley, who opened a general store in nearby Berea. He first played harmonica, augmented by a guitar Ben Foley took in on trade. Middle class by the day's standards, Ben was a fiddler; Kate was so taken with her son's singing she had him taking formal voice lessons. A track and basketball star at Berea High School, Red seemed almost destined to achieve. A scholarship to study voice at Kentucky's Georgetown College followed.

In 1931, during his second year of college, a talent scout from Chicago's WLS arrived in town. WLS was home to the 'National Barn Dance,' the first such live rural music radio show regularly broadcast in America. Before the 'Grand Ole Opry' became predominant, the 'Barn Dance' ruled. Offered $60 a week, Foley accepted and headed north. At WLS, Kentucky-born John Lair, the station musical director, placed Foley in the Cumberland Ridge Runners, working both the Saturday Night Barn Dance and weekly shows. In 1933 Foley recorded with them for the American Recording Company (ARC).

That same year, Red's wife Pauline died after giving birth to the couple's daughter Betty. He soon married fellow WLS performer Eva Overstake, vocalist with the popular 'Barn Dance' act The Three Little Maids. In 1933, he recorded for ARC as 'Rambling Red Foley.' Foley left in 1937 with Lair, who wanted to create an earthier type of program. The pair and comic Whitey Ford (the Duke of Paducah) created what became the 'Renfro Valley Barn Dance.' Its first local broadcast outlet was Cincinnati's 50,000 watt WLW, whose signal covered much of the continent. Foley worked on shows like 'Avalon Time' and with the Duke, 'Plantation Party,' broadcast nationally over NBC Radio.

In 1940 Red returned to Chicago, now the 'Barn Dance's'  undisputed star. Signed to Decca in 1941, at his first session he recorded Old Shep, his original ballad of a boy and his dog. It became a sentimental classic that touched many listeners, among them an impoverished ten year old Elvis Presley, who sang it at the 1945 Mississippi-Alabama State Fair and Dairy Show and in 1956, featured it on his second RCA Victor album.

Since the nationwide Recording Ban kept unionized musicians out of the studios, Foley didn't record again until 1944 but his first session produced a hit for the times: Smoke On The Water was a flagwaving fist-shaker predicting dire events for Germany and Japan and was #1 for 13 weeks. A 1945 cover of Bob Wills's Hang Your Head In Shame broke the Top Five. His second #1 covered Spade Cooley's hit Shame On You with the barely listenable Lawrence Welk orchestra.
