"The Manhattan Minstrel" Eddy Davis playing and singing a Cowboy ballad. Written by Smiley Burnette and Gene Autry in 1935. It was in an Autry film called "Tumbling Tumble Weeds" in 1935 and later in a Roy Rogers film from 1942 called "Ridin' Down The Canyon". Saturday use to be the day when the local movie theatre use to show all the Cowboy films. The two biggest were Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Davis is playing his Custom OME 12" head - 17 fret neck Tenor Banjo.
Great rendition! Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of the cowpokes in my family and the many songs like these they sing.
CPT, I'd love to hear some of those fellows and their songs. Eddy
