In this week's episode we're featuring a sterling album from the son of a western legend in Rex Allen, Jr.: "Ridin' High" (1976). His Daddy was Rex Allen Sr - "The Arizona Cowboy" or "The Golden Voice" - and he remained an overarching figure throughout his son's career. Blessed with the same set of incredibly rich vocals as his father, Rex Allen. Jr became a truly country AND western performer, earning a string of mainstream hits in the 70s and 80s as well as induction into the Western Music Hall Of Fame in 2008. "Ridin' High" has Allen's wonderful voice on full display - not an uptempo album by any means but one which fits like a glove. Steel guitar from Pete Drake compliments Allen's version of "Teardrops In My Heart" (cut by his Daddy in 1947); the sultry "While The Feeling's Good" would give Conway Twitty a run for his money; the mournfully guilty "I Love Everything I Get My Hands On" sits sensationally next to a couple of old western classics in "Streets Of Laredo" and "San Antonio Rose". A snapshot of Rex Allen, Jr. at his finest.
