Wilf Carter: Cowboy Songs (8-CD)

8-CD box (LP-size) with 48-page book, 187 tracks. Playing time approx. 551 mns.

Jimmie Rodgers
inspired countless musicians to try to imitate his distinctive song stylings. Gene Autry, Jimmie Davis, Cliff Carlisle, Red Foley and Stuart Hamblen were only a few of those who did. With Rodgers' death on May 26, 1933, a series of tribute songs began to unfold. Whether inspired by genuine desire to show respect for the man who would become known as the 'Father of Country Music', or merely by a desire to cash in on a potential commercial bonanza, or some strange combination of both, the tributes speak eloquently of the man and his music. Singers like Bradley Kincaid and radio stars
Asher and Little Jimmie Sizemore, whose musical debts to Rodgers were minimal, were joined by those like Gene Autry and Dwight Butcher, who were fans and, frankly, Rodgers imitators, in paying their musical respects over the next several years. Also among them were W. Lee O'Daniels Light Crust Doughboys, with an eloquent vocal by Leon Huff, WLS star Kenneth Houchins, who faithfully captures the Rodgers sound. Even Rodgers' widow and her protégé, Ernest Tubb, recorded their own tributes, with several of them written by Rodgers' sister-in-law and longtime song source, Elsie McWilliams.

In May 1953, twenty years after Rodgers' death, Tubb and another Rodgers devotee, Hank Snow, helped establish the Jimmie Rodgers Day celebrations as an annual event in Rodgers' hometown, Meridian, Mississippi. The entertainment for the dinner program at the 1957 celebration was provided by Ernest Tubb,Hank Snow, the Wilburn Brothers and Jim Reeves. Collector Eugene Earle captured the evening's entertainment on tape. Now, another forty years later, it is available, mostly for the first time, together with some of the best of the contemporary tributes to Jimmie Rodgers.

Artist description "Carter, Wilf"

Wilf Carter

geb. 18. 12. 1904 in Port Hilford - Nova Scotia - Kanadagest. 5. Dezember 1996 in Scottsdale, ArizonaRecord Labels: RCA, Decca, Apex, Starday, Bear Family

Wilf Carter, in den USA auch als Montana Slim bekannt geworden, war der erste große kanadische Country Star und dies, obwohl er nie in den überregionalen Hitparaden aufgetaucht war. Carter war stark von der Musik Jimmie Rodgers' beeinflusst und bediente sich immer erfolgreich des Cowboy Images. Seine Karriere begann Wilf Carter in den frühen 30er Jahren bei der Radiostation CF CN in Calgary, wenig später nahm er ein Angebot des CBS Networks an. Seine erste Schallplatte nahm er im Dezember 1933 in den RCA Studios von Montreal auf. lm Verlauf der Jahre hat Wilf Carter weit über 500 Songs geschrieben und unzählige Platten aufgenommen. Sein Vater war, wie er erst kürzlich in einem Interview erklärte, gebürtiger Schweizer."

Wilf Carter

Perhaps the consummate Canadian country singer, Wilf Carter (1904-1996) launched his recording career the same year Jimmie Rodgers died. Carter displayed little musical affinity for Rodgers' Blue Yodels, preferring instead his ballads, western songs and pop-oriented material. As a yodeler, Carter leaned towards conventional Swiss styles, a technique he likely learned from records and vaudevillians passing through his native Nova Scotia. Although billed as Wilf Carter in his native Canada, American audiences knew him as Montana Slim, a moniker that stuck when announcer Bert Parks forgot his name during a CBS radio broadcast. Carter recorded his first Rodgers cover, Roll Along Kentucky Moon, during a 1939 Bluebird session in New York. This version of Whisper Your Mother's Name comes from Carter's second tenure with RCA, which mostly generated material for budget-priced Canadian albums. (Dave Samuelson)
