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 .

It´s late summer 1972 in the redwood forests of northern California. It seems a safe and wondrous place, but some of the population of the town of Evergreen is growing pot in the trees, and others are bent on stealing it. Then there´s the coming folk festival, a jamboree bringing in musicians, music fans, war protesters, hippies, the Cossacks and other biker gangs, and the law, both local and federal. Skirting the edges are shades of the Manson family and the Mexican Mafia. Clifford Hickey is scheduled to perform at the festival in what might be his last guitar gig before heading off to law school to please his father. He arrives at the peaceful woodland campsite of his brother Alvaro, but within moments six armed men in badges crash the camp, and Alvaro runs. Clifford is arrested and roughly handcuffed. One of the sheriffs´ nephews has been murdered, and Alvaro is the posse´s quarry. When Clifford´s father and mother arrive on the scene, it´s the beginning of a confrontation between the Hickey family and the locals, including the Cossacks, who seemingly have their own agenda for Alvaro. Clifford, on the brink of adult life, becomes embroiled not only in a murder case but also in what becomes a battle between the Hickeys and the law and, ultimately, the Hickeys and their own past. Ken Kuhlken earned degrees in literature and writing and has been a columnist for the San Diego Reader. His stories have appeared in Esquire and Best American Short Stories, and he won the St. Martin´s Press / PWA Best First PI Novel Contest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ray Porter.

Why is everyone rushing to flee Tampa on a cruise ship to hell? Serge is back with a bullet, torn between homicide and souvenirs. So is Coleman, torn between getting hammered and getting more hammered. Then there´s good ol´ Jim Davenport, the E-Team, the Diaz Brothers, and Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin, cranking up the fevered action as the pot boils over on a street called Lobster Lane. It´s reunion time in the Sunshine State, and we´re not just talking the family jamboree of that blood-soaked criminal clan, the McGraws, whose nastiest, meanest member is finally released from prison and heads south bent on revenge. On top of it all, the government is covering up a growing list of mysterious victims across Florida who may or may not be connected to a nefarious plot being hatched against national security. But wait! There´s more on the horizon! Who is the oddly familiar femme fatale named Rachael? Is Serge wrong that guns, drugs, and strippers don´t mix? What sets the Non-Confrontationalists off on a rampage? What finally brings Coleman and Lenny together? Will they succeed in building the biggest bong ever? And can Serge surf a rogue wave to victory? Batten the hatches, don the life jackets, and take cover as all these questions and more are answered in the latest adventure from the acclaimed author of Hurricane Punch. 1. Language: English.
