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 .

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.

TWILIGHT RANCHERS - Who Stole That Train ? (CD)
16,49 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(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.

Sherry Davis - Just A Little Bit of Sherry Davi...

(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)

LIMITIERTE AUSGABE Mit unseren Single-Veröffentlichungen ultra-rarer Titel möchten wir Sie dabei unterstützen, schmerzhafte Lücken in Ihrer Sammlung zu schließen. Die von unseren sachkundigen Mitarbeitern sorgfältig und teils aus verschütteten Quellen zusammengestellten Singles enthalten gelegentlich zuvor unveröffentlichte Songs … und manchmal sogar Erstveröffentlichungen auf Vinyl! Auf 500 Exemplare limitierte und nummerierte Vinyl-Single (45 RPM) - Bildhülle Warren Smith konnte alles singen: Blues, Hillbilly, Rockabilly. Er gilt als einer der besten und ehrlichsten Sänger seiner Zeit. Und er wählte für den Beginn seiner Karriere einen verdammt mythischen Ausgangspunkt: Sun Records. Für eine Weile sah es so aus, als ob Smith seinen Label-Kollegen nacheifern könnte und selbst zu einer allgemein bekannten Größe reifen würde. Er sah gut aus, er besaß Talent und den Willen, es schaffen zu wollen. Fraglos war er zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort. Der Ruhm ließ jedoch auf sich warten, bis er 1960 bei Liberty zur Country Music zurückkehrte. Doch selbst heute zählt seine Musik aus den Fünfzigern zu den besten Beispielen aus jener großartigen Zeit. Diese beiden Aufnahmen mit seinem Rockabilly-Duo entstanden live bei der Big D Jamboree in Dallas.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

4-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 48-seitigem Buch, 122 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 315 Minuten. Aufgrund zahlreicher Nachfragen von Bluegrass Fans veröffentlichen wir die kompletten klassischen Aufnahmen von Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper! Beinhaltet ultrarare und bislang unveröffentlichte frühe Aufnahmen aus dem persönlichen Archiv der Coopers. Alles, was Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper jemals für Rich-R-Tone, Columbia und Hickory aufgenommen haben …komplett und restauriert! Unglaubliche Versionen klassischer Songs wie Little Rosewood Casket, Wicked Path Of Sin, Tramp On The Street, Walking My Lord Up Calvary´s Hill, Thirty Pieces Of Silver, Big Midnight Special, This Ole House, und Wreck On The Highway. Ein enorm wichtiges Stück amerikanischer Musikgeschichte ist nun zum ersten Mal auf CD erhältlich! Oldtime, Bluegrass, Traditionals – wie auch immer man diese Musik bezeichnet, Wilma Lee und Stoney Cooper haben sie als Teil der Country Music konserviert. Sie sangen und spielten ihren Stil so gut wie niemand zuvor und danach. Die Grand Ole Opry und das Wheeling Jamboree machte Stars aus ihnen…und sie sind es seit den 40er Jahren geblieben. Dieses 4-CD-Set enthält alle Aufnahmen von Wilma Lee und Stoney Cooper für Rich-R-Tone, Columbia und Hickory. Jede noch aufzutreibende Einspielung aus den Jahren 1947 bis 1964 wurde erfaßt. Zu hören sind traditionelle Klassiker wie etwa Little Rosewood Casket, Wicked Path Of Sin, Tramp On The Street, Willy Roy The Crippled Boy, Walking My Lord Up Calvary´s Hill, Thirty Pieces Of Silver, Ain´t Gonna Work Tomorrow und viele andere. Sie haben außerdem die Originalfassung von I Dreamed Of Hillbilly Heaven aufgenommen, obwohl sie damals noch gar nicht veröffentlicht war (auch sie ist hier enthalten). Nachdem das Duo 1955 bei Hickory unterschrieben hatte, gelangen den beiden viele ihrer besten Aufnahmen im Oldtime-Stil, und sie landeten Hits wie Cheated Too, Come Walk With Me, Big Midnight Special, There´s A Big Wheel, Johnny My Love, This Ole House und Wreck On The Highway. Sie alle sind hier dabei, genau wie sämtliche anderen existierenden Hickory-Einspielungen. Die besten Songautoren ihrer Zeit – darunter Don Gibson, die Louvins und Boudleaux Bryant – schrieben für sie, und auch Wilma Lee selbst steuerte einige Titel bei. Stoney Cooper starb 1977. Wilma Lee trat weiterhin auf und setzte sich intensiv dafür ein, die Musik, die sie so liebte und die sie populär gemacht hatte, für zukünftige Generationen am Leben zu erhalten. Dieses Set ist eine wahre Fundgrube mit klassischer, traditioneller amerikanischer Musik – mit verdienter Leidenschaft gesungen und gespielt von einigen der besten Musiker der 40er, 50er und 60er Jahre. Viele der hier präsentierten Aufnahmen hat es nie zuvor auf CD gegeben. Bruce A. McGuire hat für das Set die Künstler-Biographie geschrieben, angereichert mit vielen Informationen direkt von Wilma Lee. Außerdem sind seltene Fotos und reproduzierte Anzeigen zu sehen.

(Rollercoaster Records) 4 tracks - triangle centre - mastered at CTS, Wembley with ´B.J. at the control´ written in dead wax - Wash Machine Boogie by the Echo Valley Boys was the Island Record Company´s first release in April 1957. Like many of the more obscure 50´s recordings now regarded as rockabilly classics by boppers and collectors alike the release has been as extensively bootlegged as it has been ´covered´ by present-day rockabilly bands. Little is known of the Echo Valley Boys, but Bill Browning appears to have been more than just the lead vocalist, having arranged, produced and written most of the band´s material. Bill was born on May 16th 1931 in Wayne County, West Virginia, where he became interested in music at the age of fourteen. At sixteen he formed his first band, the Kanawha Valley Boys, and broadcast regularly over WTIP in Charleston, West Virginia until 1950 when he and members of his band were drafted into the services. In August 1955 Bill moved to Cleveland, Ohio, and formed the Echo Valley Boys, who were soon appearing every Saturday night on the Circle Theatre Jamboree. In the spring of 1957 Bill submitted some of his material to Frank J. Videmsek, president of the Island Record Company, and his first recording - Wash machine boogie and Ramblin´ man was soon on the presses. This was followed by Born with the blues, Breaking hearts, Sinful woman and Hula rock. Although Bill remained actively involved in songwriting and recording, national success eluded him and he died in January 1978, a victim of cancer.
