Inspired by the Hank Williams and Leadbelly recordings he heard as a teenager growing up outside of Boston, Jim Rooney began a musical journey that intersected with some of the biggest names in American music, including Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bill Monroe, Muddy Waters, and Alison Krauss. In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey is Rooney´s kaleidoscopic firsthand account of more than five decades of success as a performer, concert promoter, songwriter, music publisher, engineer, and record producer. As witness to and participant in over half a century of music history, Rooney provides a sophisticated window into American vernacular music. Following his stint as a Hayloft Jamboree hillbilly singer in the mid-1950s, Rooney managed Cambridge´s Club 47, a catalyst of the ´60s folk music boom. He soon moved to the Newport Folk Festival as talent coordinator and director, where he had a front-row seat to Dylan ´´going electric´´. In the 1970s, Rooney´s odyssey continued in Nashville, where he began engineering and producing records. His work helped alternative country music gain a foothold in Music City and culminated in Grammy nominations for singer-songwriters John Prine, Iris Dement, and Nanci Griffith. Later in his career, he was a key link connecting Nashville to Ireland´s folk music scene. Whether he´s writing songs or writing his memoir, Jim Rooney is the consummate storyteller. In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey is his singular chronicle from the heart of Americana. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Rooney.

1-CD mit 32-seitigem Booklet, 22 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 52 Minuten. klassischer East-Texas-Sound mit dem Country Cover des 1954er Super-Pop-Hits Sh-Boom alle offiziell veröffentlichten Aufnahmen von Bobby Williamson . seine Dallas- und Nashville-Einspielungen Bobby Williamsons Karriere ist vergleichbar mit der vieler andere regionaler Größen aus dem goldenen Zeitalter der Country Music. Als Sänger mit erheblichem Erfolg im Umkreis von ein paar hundert Meilen um seinen Heimatort, blieb ihm ein nationaler Durchbruch versagt. Er war ein Star in zwei der größten Country-Music-Shows des Südwestens (´Big D Jamboree´ und ´Saturday Night Shindig´) und wird vor allem mit zwei Hits in Verbindung gebracht, Bummin´ Around und besonders mit Sh-Boom , dem Rock ´n´ Roll-Knaller von 1954. Doch er hatte noch mehr zu bieten. Zwischen 1952 und 1954 bewies er mit einer konstanten Reihe von Singles, daß er – mit guter Stimme und der Art, wie er die Songs interpretierte – eigentlich Größeres verdient gehabt hätte. Auch Aussehen und Persönlichkeit stimmten. Er hinterließ nach vergleichsweise nur kurzer Zeit in Aufnahmestudios ein starkes musikalisches Erbe – und die vorliegende Songsammlung läßt einen der besten Künstler aus dem Texas der 50er Jahre deutlich erkennen. Bear Family hat alle 22 Bobby-Williamson-Aufnahmen zusammengefaßt (darunter zwei unveröffentlichte), die hoffentlich dazu beitragen werden, daß man sich wieder intensiver an diesen Künstler erinnert. Zu Bummin´ Around und Sh-Boom kommen einige schöne Balladen wie etwa There´s No Escape und I Remember sowie sofort ansteckende, schnellere Novelty-Songs wie die selbstkomponierten Just Skip It und A Little Bit Of This bis hin zum völlig unverwechselbaren, eigenständigen Love March . Mit von der Partie sind einige der qualifiziertesten Country-Musiker jener Zeit – zum Beispiel Bobby Williamsons Dallas-Kumpels Leon Rhodes , Jimmy Kelley und Paul Buskirk und natürlich die erprobten Nashville-Session-Cracks Chet Atkins , Jerry Byrd und Homer & Jethro .
(2004/COW ISLAND) 12 tracks (32:19) Boston´s blend of Honky Tonk, Hillbilly and Western Swing. Produced by Sean Mencher. Longtime fans of Boston´s hillbilly scene get misty-eyed when the conversation turns to the golden age of the early ´50s. There was a day when the airwaves crackled with WCOP´s Hayloft Jamboree (three shows a day at one point!), country music was all you heard at dozens of nightspots in and around BostOn, and even the snootiest Hah-vand-educated Boston Brahmin could walk into II Walker´s Riding Apparel and walk out looking like Bob Wills. Indeed, it´s been reported that Boston alone accounted for 25% of all country record sales in the American east during that era. So it´s bats off to The Twilight Ranchers for doing their level best to turn back the clock to that golden age. I first encountered them on a Friday night at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge; a bunch of guys dressed to the nines in vintage western duds and playing instruments at least as old as the songs they were playing. What stood out was the music, though; a blend of classic honky-tonk, hillbilly, and a bit of western swing that had feet a-tappin´ and liquor a-pourin´. There was really no room to dance, but people did anyway. Having since hooked up with string wizard/producer Sean Mencher (High Noon, Wayne Hancock) and engineer Matt Robbins (King Memphis), The Twilight Ranchers now offer the rest of the world a bit of. what Boston´s been hearing for the last couple of years. So without any further ado, I give you WJ, Rob, Jon, Brad, and Matt - The Twilight Ranchers! -Jon Johnson, Country Standard Time magazine.
(Rollercoaster) 4 tracks - small center - Sherry Davis met Gene Autry when she was taken to visit his house as a child, and from that day she wanted to be a singer. Success in Amateur Nights and Talent Shows led Sherry to singing on the Cowtown Round-Up where she met Smokey Montgomery who helped her join Texo Ted Gouldy´s Hired Hands about October 1949. The Hired Hands were effectively the Light Crust Doughboys in disguise and had a daily show on Radio WBAP, Fort Worth. About a year later Sherry switched to WBAP-TV´s Bewley Barn Dance which she co-hosted with Darrell Glenn, who was replaced by Pat Boone when Glenn went on the road to promote his big hit ´Crying In The Chapel´. Gene Autry encouraged Sherry to move to the West Coast about 1954. She recorded advertising jingles for American Music and played on the Foreman Phillips Show and Town Hall Party before becoming featured singer on the nationally syndicated Lawrence Welk TV Show. The American Music connection led to her disc debut ´God Speaks´/´Did You Stop To Pray This Morning?´ (Crest 1005). Sherry returned to Dallas in 1955 and was soon a regular on the Big D Jamboree playing alongside the biggest names in music. She also hosted KRLD-TV´s Opus ´56 show. In October 1956 Sherry became one of the very few artists ever to support a tour by RCA artist Elvis Presley; they played to over 60,000 people in 4 days. The following summer the Big D´s Ed McLemore and Johnny Hicks set up a recording session, financed by Ray Winkler (Radio KZIP, Amarillo), which took place in Norman Petty´s studio overnight July 25-26, 1957. Petty hired the musicians and it wasn´t until later that Sherry realised she´d been backed by Buddy Holly (lead guitar) and JI Allison (drums) who at the time were still a few weeks away from stardom with the Crickets. The other musicians were George Atwood on bass, Vi Petty on organ, the Picks (Bill & John Pickering and Bob Lapham) backing vocals and Jack Vaughan or Niki Sullivan on rhythm guitar. ´´Broken Promises´´ and ´´Humble Heart´´ made up the debut single on Winkler´s Fashion label (1001) in late August. Mitch Miller wanted to buy the masters for Columbia but the deal fell through when McLemore refused to relinquish the publishing rights; a devastating blow for Sherry as Miller would have been the perfect person to promote her career. The two songs have never been reissued until now and the original single is one of the highest priced discs to emerge from Texas. The two superb and previously unissued rockers on side one of this EP are a mystery. Sherry recognises her voice but cannot recall recording them. They were probably cut in Dallas about 1957. The classy backings may well be the Big D Jamboree houseband. Whatever the origins the two songs are among the best femme rockers to come out of Texas. This is just a little bit of Sherry Davis - further material by Sherry will appear on a forthcoming Rollercoaster CD, Highway 84. Sherry later worked the Holiday Inn circuit and then spent almost a decade as a Las Vegas headliner singing for lounge-pop genius Esquivel before retiring from music in 1971. It´s a pity we had to wait so long for Sherry´s first release in the UK, but maybe it´s not too late for her career to take off on this side of the Atlantic ....(John Ingman)
(2013/Westernswingers) 13 tracks (41:03) digisleeve - John England & the Western Swingers is a six piece band based in Nashville, TN, which plays the lively, happy music called Western Swing. Western Swing originally developed in Texas and Oklahoma during the 1930´s.

The Swingers can also boast of appearances at New York´s Lincoln Center, the Grand Ole Opry, the Legends of Western Swing Festival, the ´Midnight Jamboree´, and many concerts and private events in the mid-South area.
(2017/El Toro) 13 Tracks - Aisha’s earliest influences incorporated everything from Elvis and Sarah Vaughan to Billy Bragg and Northern Soul and once drawn into London’s incendiary rockabilly club scene, she felt the irresistible pull of black American Rhythm & Blues as a call to action, setting up her first band Tiger Lily and the Jitterbugs, with which she performed throughout the UK and Europe for several years. Subsequently, she was the first vocalist with the 10 piece big band, Blue Harlem performing Swing and Jump Jive. Throughout this time, she also sang Jazz and Blues in a variety of combos. She is currently working in England and Europe with ongoing Projects in Spain and London. Recent performances include events with the Aisha Khan R&B Revue, Blue Harlem, Cherry Casino & the Gamblers Big Jamboree and the Velvet Candles.
