On August 4, 1927 Jimmie Rodgers had the very first recording session of his career, although he had no accompanying personnel that did not affect the session in the least. The session actually got started about 2:00 and lasted until almost 4:30, two songs were recorded from this session the very first was "The Soldier's Sweetheart" and the second track was "Sleep, Baby, Sleep" both would be issued at a later date. Jimmie would sing and play guitar for both songs and for "Sleep, Baby, Sleep" he would also yodel, this would be his first recorded yodel, this is significant in the fact that Jimmie Rodgers would become one of the best, if not the best yodeler to ever record (in my opinion) and this would show in the vast number of his future recordings.

This discography covers Jimmie Rodgers recordings from his very first recording at the Bristol Sessions in 1927 to his very last session two days before his death in New York City in 1933.

Included are all his 78 RPM issued tracks on the Victor, Bluebird, Electradisk, Montgomery Ward and Sunrise record labels. In addition to his issued tracks there is a section on all unissued tracks (on 78 RPM) many were issued at a later date on 33 and CD.

You will also find a comprehensive listing of 45 RPM singles, extended play and 33 RPM (LP / Albums).

An International discography of 78 RPM, 45 RPM and 33 RPM records (although not exhaustive) is included.

There is a full performer index, song index, unissued track index, record and record label photographs, song writing index and more...
