Tennessee Ernie Ford: Portrait Of An American Singer 1949-1960 (5-CD)

2016 Grammy nomination for Bear Family's, Tennessee Ernie Ford - Portrait Of An American Singer 1949-1960 (5-CD) Box set

5-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 120-page hardcover book, 154 tracks. Total playing time approx.. 397 minutes.

•    All the secular-themed studio recordings from the first dozen years in the career of one of the most important crossover acts in the history of American popular music.
•    Five CDs containing 154 tracks and a 120-page book with newly written essays, track-by-track album notes, a discography, label scans, and many rare photographs and illustrations.
•    Early country hits including the chart-topping Mule Train (1949) and Ford's pioneering 'hillbilly boogie' smash The Shotgun Boogie (1950), as well as Ford's first major crossover hit, the 1950 duet (with Kay Starr) I'll Never Be Free.
•    It also includes classics such as Rock City Boogie (with the Dinning Sisters, 1951) and Blackberry Boogie (1952) as well as overlooked delights as the train song Tennessee Local (1952), his 1952 interpretation of Willie Mabon's rhythm and blues hit I Don't Know.
•    This boxed set includes two never-before-released songs (Slow Down and Small World), numerous Ford singles and album tracks not previously reissued on CD, and several rarities, including Ford's 1955 recitations of Davy Crockett tales, as well as Ford's 1958 public service jingles to promote the U.S. Marine Corps 'Toys for Tots' charitable program.

Inarguably a major recording act, 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. And he played significant - and pioneering - roles in radio and television broadcasting.

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. Selling over four million copies and proving to be one of the most influential singles of the 1950s. Ford's signature song, Sixteen Tons was eventually inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame and into the National Recording Registry.

This boxed set explores Ford's first dozen years (1949-1960) as a recording act, and listeners today can marvel at the range of his repertoire and (considering that for much of that period he was a musician part-time and a television host full-time) at the extent of his productivity.

Ford made innovative, influential recordings, all of which can be heard in 'Portrait Of An American Singer.'

5-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 120-page hardcover book, 154 tracks. Total playing time approx.. 397 minutes.

A magnificent artefact

Wonderful testament


Now Dig This 11/15 "This set, with its 154 tracks, is a wonderful testament to Tennessee Ernie Ford's recorded legacy. As usual, Bear Family offers a lot more with a hardback book outlining the Ford story, a full discography, and photos, photos, photos!"

 
From: BF Presse 2015-10-20 09:50:15

Typical Bear Family release

American Back Roads 19.10.15 "Bear Family does its now-standard thorough job on this compilation, gathering the complete recordings from this era..as it's typical Bear Family releases, there's a thorough recording session account, letting fans scour through the information as to which players were included on what tracks."

 
From: BF Presse 2015-10-13 11:44:51

A testament

Cowboys & Indians, Nov.-Dec. 2015 "This CD collection on its own is indeed a portrait of Ford and a testament to his immense talent, but crack open the beautifully bound book to see the old album jackets and photos and read the stories behind the songs if you want the complete picture."

 
From: BF Presse 2015-10-06 09:45:02

Beautiful and hefty

Bandmine 28.09.15 "This beautiful and hefty new box set from the folks at the German label Bear Family Records presents us with a thorough collection of music from one of America's most criminally underappreciated artists of all time."

 
From: BF Presse 2015-09-29 10:46:05

A one-of-a-kind tribute

The Second Disc, 25.09.2015 „Portrait of an American Singer“ is a one-of-a-kind tribute to a one-of-a-kind talent who made his mark on the realms of pop, country, gospel, and beyond. The many sides of Tennesse Ernie Ford reveal an artist whose best work transcended genre and period. Well, a-bless his soul!"

 
From: BF Presse 2015-09-22 10:24:01

A phantastic document

Record Collector 10/15 "This – as usual – impeccable Bear Family box set drops in on Ford in 1949, at wihich point he'd signed to Capitol. A phantastic dokument."

Blues & Rhythm 10/15 "This set explores Ford's first dozen years as a recording act, and shows the extent of his productivity. Usual immaculate Bear Family production values, if interested, buy with confidence."

 
From: BF Presse 2015-09-15 11:50:55

Phantastic deluxe box set

Eine Auszeichnung!

Oldiemarkt 9/15 "Wer Bear Family sagt, weiss, dass diese Box mit einem Booklet kommt, dass diesen Namen deshalb nicht verdient, weil es ein veritables Buch geworden ist. Es ist eine Auszeichnung für den Sänger und Interpreten."

 
From: BF Presse 2015-08-19 15:31:48

Love this set.

Bear Family News
Tennessee Ernie Ford “Portrait of an American Singer” 5 CD + 128 pg hard cover book. Love this set. Firstly turn to page 81 and you see a most unusual picture...Ern without his famous moustache. You wouldn’t believe how different he looks. This covers the period from 1949 -1960 and covers the non religious recordings. There is a song by song run down and it is amazing the success that “Sixteen Tons” had. It was going to be a b-side only but soon became the hit side and was number one for 10 weeks on the country chart and then number one on the pop charts for 8 weeks. Great notes. 154 songs. Again, the gospel songs are not on this box.
