  • Tennessee Ernie Ford’s acoustic albums: simple clarity… natural depth.
  • Tennessee Ernie Ford’s two trio albums: 'Country Hits…Feelin’ Blue’ (1964) and ‘Ernie Sings & Glen Picks’ (1975) paired here by Bear Family Records® for the first time in any format. 
  • An early template for the ‘unplugged’ album… decades before that recording technique became a trend in popular music.
  • Featured musicians: guitarist extraordinaire Billy Strange and upright bassist John Moshe (1964), and country and pop crossover superstar/guitarist/harmony singer Glen Campbell and double bassist Chuck Domanico (1975).
  • To many in the know these are the finest and rarest LP releases of secular music from the singer’s long career, with a voice that was well-worn yet enduring.
  • Extensive liner notes by East Tennessean, Dr. Ted Olson, Professor of Appalachian Studies at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City. 
  • The full-color booklet contains previously unseen photos from the recording sessions and a session discography.

In 2015 Bear Family Records® collected Ford’s 78 RPM releases along with his 1950s LPs of secular music in the 5-CD boxed set ‘Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait of an American Singer, 1949-1960’ (BCD17332). That set, though, did not incorporate any of Ford’s recordings released after 1960. Ford is most often remembered today for his early recordings. In 1955, the singer scored a massive national crossover hit with his finger-snapped rendition of Sixteen Tons. He remained a prolific recording artist through the early 1980s. Bear Family’s release of this single-CD featuring two trio albums presents recordings Ford himself would have wanted to be considered in any discussions about his legacy.
‘Country Hits…Feelin’ Blue’ and ‘Ernie Sings & Glen Picks’ document Ford at his best! 

Released in 1964, ‘Country Hits…Feelin’ Blue’ was remarkably stripped-down and unassuming. Among the musicians were two masters on their own instruments: guitarist extraordinaire Billy Strange and upright bassist John Mosher. 
They entered the recording studio, and the resulting album sustained its formula of simple directness from start to finish: twelve country standards cut in six hours over two days with three guys. No overdubs, no re-do’s… one take for each song, with Ford singing over Strange’s understated, nimble arrangements. 
Eleven years later, the 1964 session served as a template for Ford’s last great album concept…. which was not a copycat project. Featuring ten country standards (with the inclusion of three progressive country songs by Kris Kristofferson), ‘Ernie Sings & Glen Picks’ matched Ford’s vocals to inspired accompaniment by country and pop crossover superstar and guitarist/harmony singer Glen Campbell as well as acoustic bassist Chuck Domanico. The recordings were rich and textured precisely because the co-headliners, Ford and Campbell brought to the studio radically different experiences and sensibilities. Simple clarity…natural depth…an elaboration of two artists in unison.  

Ford’s two classic trio albums for Capitol, now properly recognized on a Bear Family Records® single-CD pairing, provide compelling evidence to support critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine’s claim that Ford was an ‘American roots pop pioneer.’

Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait Of An American Singer (Bear Family Records) Five-Cd And Book Boxed Set Scores Grammy Nomination For Best Album Notes

 

Ted Olson, traditional country music scholar and professor at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn. a stone’s throw from Bristol, Tenn. — country music’s birthplace and the hometown of Tennessee Ernie Ford — was producer and annotator of the Ford set.

 

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (1919-1991) sold an estimated 90 million albums worldwide, and charted 17 Top Ten country singles and four Top Ten pop singles over a 35-year recording career. He also played significant roles in radio and television broadcasting.  But although he left a legacy of diverse and singular recordings and was a major influence on the generation of country and rock musicians that emerged in his wake, Ford’s stature as a culture figure receded from view to the point that recent generations have not recognized his name or his music. 

 

Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait of an American Singer, a 2015 boxed set from Bear Family Records featuring 5-CDs and a hardcover book, has gone a long way toward rehabilitating Ford’s reputation as a pioneering crossover artist and as an early shaper of rock ’n’ roll.  That set has now been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Album Notes category. The album notes writer for the new Tennessee Ernie Ford set, Ted Olson, also served as producer of the release. 

 

Journalist and author Barry Mazor wrote in The Wall Street Journal: “Ford’s adventurous 1949-1960 secular recordings for Capitol Records are the focus of a new, enormously entertaining 154-track boxed set, Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait of an American Singer (Bear Family Records). Music historian Ted Olson’s detailed notes track this ‘stellar singer who refused to let arbitrary genre rules dictate how he should interpret a song.’ The records themselves, though, as they evolve in production and performance, ultimately tell the rich story.”

 

The online music magazine The Second Disc praised the release:  “Bear Family’s presentation of Portrait of an American Singer is naturally exquisite in the label’s traditional fashion.  The LP-sized box houses its five discs in individual jewel cases with unique artwork and track listings.  The accompanying hardcover book written by the set’s producer, Ted Olson, would be worth the price of admission on its own. With more than 125 pages, it includes a remarkable text that amounts to a biography of Ford even beyond the period covered in the set.  This exceptional essay is joined by an array of photographs from the Ford family archives, plus detailed track-by-track liner notes (a rarity even among Bear Family boxes!), and an expectedly comprehensive discography by Bear Family’s Richard Weize and Russ Wapensy. Though the focus here is on Ford’s secular material (he would later immerse himself even more fully in gospel and spiritual recordings), the track-by-track notes and discography even address the sides which aren’t included. Ulf Hattwig’s remastering is superb.”

 

Ford launched his recording career in the late 1940s within the Country & Western field, and scored a dozen Top 20 country chart hits through the end of 1951. Yet within that same period he placed half a dozen Top 20 hits on the pop singles chart, demonstrating to his label, Capitol Records, and to disc jockeys and fans across the U.S. that there was broad appeal for his music.  In the early months of 1955, Ford’s version of “The Ballad of Davy Crockett” was a top five hit on the country chart as well as on the pop chart, foreshadowing Ford’s ultimate crossover achievement. Toward the end of that same year, his smash single “Sixteen Tons” topped both charts simultaneously, and rose to #1 in the U.K.  That release sold more than four million copies, and proved to be one of the most influential singles of the 1950s, inspiring many among the next generation in the U.S. and the U.K. to pursue careers in music. Becoming Ford’s signature song, “Sixteen Tons” was eventually inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and into the National Recording Registry.

 

After “Sixteen Tons,” Ford could not compete with the younger upstarts of the rock ’n’ roll era (only two of his releases after “Sixteen Tons” rose into the Top 40 pop chart), yet he had already shown all comers — from Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis to Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Glen Campbell — that an artist need not be limited by an artistic persona shaped in previous performances and recordings. For younger musicians wanting to be unbound by any fixed artistic identity, Ford was a worthy and proven role model, and the fascinating story of his life and career is conveyed in Portrait of an American Singer through Ford’s innovative, influential recordings and through Olson’s comprehensive, compelling notes.
