For over 45 years, Rex Franklin has been one of New Zealand's premier country artists. Influenced by the old time artists, he has held fast to the classic tradition of American country, infusing it with a distinctive New Zealand flavour. Many of his songs deal with New Zealand subject matter, while retaining the form and character of American country music.

It's an exciting and original blend. Many of Rex's original records from the 1950s and 1960s have long been unavailable, and now they're available once again on Bear Family. The 63 titles on two CDs include Rocky Mountain Lullaby, The Ghost Of Tom Dooley, The Cowhand's Swing, and The Drover's Song. Not only is Rex Franklin a star in his native New Zealand, his music has found a small, dedicated following throughout the world (in fact, one of his records topped the country music charts in Holland in 1964!). Country music fans who want to hear something different ... but authentic ... should check out Rex Franklin.
