Jimmie Skinner: Doin' My Time (6-CD)

6-CD box (LP-size) with 92-page hardcover book, 162 tracks. Playing time approx. 465 mns.


Jimmie Skinner drew the roadmap that today's 'alt-country' singer-songwriters follow. Inspired by the bluesmen of his youth, Jimmie Skinner wrote songs of melancholy, despair and anger, framed by catchy, unforgettable melodies. Frustrated in his attempts to land a major label contract, he independently produced and distributed his own records. Nearly forty years old when he launched his professional career, Jimmie Skinner rose to fame during the late forties through enduring songs like Let's Say Goodbye (Like We Said Hello), Will You Be Satisfied That Way, You Don't Know My Mind, Don't Give Your Heart To A Rambler, and Doin' My Time.

The consummate country music outsider, Skinner rejected conventional Nashville protocols. His idiosyncratic musical vision simply didn't fit contemporary music industry tastes and trends. Jimmie Skinner stripped country music to its raw essentials, much as Sun Records' Sam Phillips later did with Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and especially Johnny Cash and His Tennessee Two. His accompaniment was minimal and often stark. Jimmie Skinner thrashed his guitar with an aggressive upstroke, creating a backbeat that a generation of rockabilly singers later emulated. Mandolinist Ray Lunsford dutifully followed Jimmie Skinner's quirky sense of meter by rarely deviating from the melody. If Jimmie Skinner's phrasing was reminiscent of Jimmie Rodgers and early Ernest Tubb, his voice was unmistakably his own –
a warm, baritone growl that boomed out of the era's jukeboxes.

When the major labels finally beckoned, Jimmie Skinner battled to maintain his artistic integrity. His persistence paid off in the late fifties with a string of country chart hits that defied the dominating Nashville Sound, including I Found My Girl In The U.S.A., What Makes A Man Wander and Dark Hollow. Rather than bow to changing tastes in country music, Jimmie Skinner voluntarily ended his recording career.

Once one of country music's most beloved, best-known figures, Jimmie Skinner is barely remembered today. Relatively few of his singles saw reissue on LP, much less compact disc. This long-overdue collection finally restores Jimmie Skinner's most important recordings to print. Five compact discs feature Jimmie Skinner's classic 1947-1962 recordings for Red Barn, Radio Artists, Capitol, Decca and Mercury, along with acetates and rare bluegrass tracks sold exclusively through the Jimmie Skinner Music Center. A sixth disc features Jimmie Skinner reading excerpts from his uncompleted autobiography. His compelling narrative spins tales of the Great Depression, his first efforts at songwriting and frustrating attempts to get on record, his peak years on Knoxville radio, and decision to return to his southwestern Ohio home.

Working closely with the Skinner family, his former guitarist Rusty York, and others associated with the singer, country music researcher David Sax recovered unissued Radio Artists master acetates along with dozens of photos, clippings and printed souvenirs. Drawing upon contemporary trade magazines and fanzines, unpublished oral histories and new interviews, Dave Samuelson details Jimmie Skinner's fascinating life, music and career in a 92-page hardcover book. 'Doin' My Time' stands as the definitive collection of one of country music's most intriguing personalities.

Artist description "Skinner, Jimmie"

Jimmie Skinner

Had the category of 'alt-country' existed fifty years ago, Jimmie Skinner would fit right in. A brilliant singer-songwriter, Skinner was an intriguing personality who literally marched to the beat of his own drummer. His music seems more suited to juke-joint Wurlitzers than genteel living room Crosleys, yet Skinner's appeal crossed gender lines, attracting as many women as men. Some cite Skinner as a primal influence on the first generation of rockabillies. Others notice parallels between Johnny Cash's early Sun sound and the stark minimalism of Skinner's classic recordings.

As a songwriter, his talent was nonpareil. His admirers included Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Fred Rose, Jimmy Martin, and Johnny Cash. His lyrics were usually melancholy and occasionally angry; his melodies were usually catchy and occasionally hypnotic. As a performer, Skinner followed a peculiar internal clock that vexed the most patient, attentive musicians. He thrashed his guitar with as much emphasis on his upstroke as his downstroke, creating a double-time effect. More often than not, Skinner started singing on the backbeat – sometimes early, sometimes late. By his own admission, his singing voice was rough. If his blues-tinged delivery often reflected his heroes Jimmie Rodgers and Ernest Tubb, Skinner's voice was unmistakably his own – a deep, resonant baritone that seemed to growl.

At one time Skinner was one of country music's best-known, best-loved personalities. Through the fifties and sixties, virtually every country music magazine featured a full-page monthly ad promoting The Jimmie Skinner Music Center in downtown Cincinnati. Each type-heavy ad sported a halftone of the store's genial proprietor wearing his trademark Kentucky Colonel hat, narrow necktie and inviting smile. If your local record store didn't stock that new Columbia record by Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper or that Starday single by Jimmie Williams & Red Ellis that you just heard on WCKY, Jimmie Skinner could send it to you. And when visiting Cincinnati, stop by 222 E. Fifth Street any weekday morning to watch Jimmie broadcast live in person from the Music Center's display window. At one point grocers even stocked Jimmie Skinner coffee, freshly ground and vacuum-packed.

That was then. Mention Skinner's name to any country music fan or knowledgeable radio personality today, chances are you'll get a puzzled stare. Even though he placed ten records in 'Billboard's country charts between 1949 and 1960 – four in the Top 10 – Skinner has largely been forgotten. Relatively few of his singles were reissued on LP, much less on compact disc. Once in awhile you'll stumble across a budget-priced Skinner cassette or compact disc in a Midwestern or Southern truck stop. They're usually disappointing recordings he made late in life, backed by inattentive bluegrass musicians who lacked the finesse that Skinner's singing demands.

Nor do traces of this country music giant linger near Ohio's Queen City. The Jimmie Skinner Music Center's downtown location – a Mecca to people who loved edgy, uncompromising country and gospel music – was demolished decades ago. The electric sign that proudly hung over its façade deserves a display in the Cincinnati History Museum. Instead, it sits two thousand miles away, a rusty relic treasured by a San Diego record collector.
