It's has been very hard to put together a complete list of Jim's recordings. The following is a partial list of some of his more popular recordings. Several of Jim's records are still available in record shops and on the internet. The best collection I have found is by the German company, Bear Family Records. They offer a collection of 16 CDs which has almost everything Jim ever recorded. It's expensive, though. They also offer some smaller collections which are more affordable.
1. My Heart's Like a Welcome Mat, 1949.
2. Mexican Joe, 1953.
