Lefty Frizzell: An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings (20-CD Deluxe Box Set & Book)

Bear Family’s penchant for behemothic box sets has always been a reissue industry standard.  Indeed, even today, with the majors bombarding us with similarly weighty, career-long round-ups (Nazareth, Judie Tzuke and Kate Bush are the latest), the Bear still stands head and shoulders above their efforts.  
GOLDMINE November 28, 2018 - Dave Thompson

This is the cornerstone of every Country music collection! – Colin Escott, May 2018

Who was the greatest Country singer of all time? Some might say Merle Haggard, but Merle disagreed. ''There's no way I can describe the effect Lefty Frizzell had,'' Merle told us. ''The soul of Hank Williams, the appeal of Johnny Cash and the charisma of Elvis Presley. He had it all. He was dressed all in white - heroes usually are. The impact he had on Country Music, and on me is not even measurable.'' George Jones began his career almost as a Lefty tribute act. Much of Willie Nelson’s phrasing comes from Lefty Frizzell. When Roy Orbison joined the Traveling Wilburys, it was as Lefty Wilbury. Lefty's songs brought newfound poetry to Country music. Lefty Frizzell’s influence is incalculable.

A little history. We at Bear Family have always championed Lefty Frizzell. Back in 1984, when Lefty had almost been written out of the Country music story, we issued a comprehensive 14-LP box, ‘His Life, His Music,’ comprising all his known recordings. It wasn’t one of our best-sellers, but it needed to be done because Lefty was that important. Then Merle Haggard’s new recordings began shading closer to Lefty, and so did Keith Whitley’s records. People began talking about Lefty again. Willie Nelson recorded a tribute album, From Willie to Lefty, and Lefty’s younger brother, David, brought the Frizzell name back into the charts. Lefty was finally inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. And then the CD era arrived, so in 1992 we reissued our LP box as a 12-CD set, ‘Life’s Like Poetry,’ adding many newly-discovered non-session recordings, and redesigning the book to include many newly-found photos. 

So now it’s more than 25 years after the CD edition. Even more recordings and many more photos have been found together with much more information about Lefty’s brief, incendiary life. Now it’s time for Bear Family to release the last word on the first name in Country music. This time it’s TWENTY CDs, including David Frizzell's audio biography that was not on our original LP box, and many that weren’t on the first CD box! The book is now a hardcover and greatly expanded in every way.

"Lefty Frizzell"

Lefty Frizzell

Steppin' Out

Lefty Frizzell was the greatest honky-tonk singer of all time—if you ask the most educated and highly opinionated fans of country music, that is. Blessed with a voice that came naturally to him—a voice that held so much soul and carried such infinite layers of emotional expression, that grown men were oft-moved to tears—Lefty was also cursed with bad habits and a downward career path that left him dead in 1975 at the tragically young age of 47.

This compilation, part of the 'Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight' series, seeks to compile all the up-tempo numbers—hillbilly boogie, rockabilly, borderline rock 'n' roll and hard late 1950s country—for a package that will undoubtedly appeal to crowd of rockabilly fans and those seeking to have a lone Lefty Frizzell disc in their collection.

Let it be known, however, that a disc that contains only the uptempo Lefty Frizzell numbers is much like a painting that uses only two of the primary colors. Lefty's incredible depth of emotion lent itself best to plaintive ballads and waltzes, and although the uptempo numbers are also great. But if you really want to experience the full breadth of Lefty's talent this author urges you to seek out the most essential of Bear Family box sets, 'Life's Like Poetry.' (BCD 15550).

William Orville 'Lefty' Frizzell was born March 31, 1928 in the oil and farm town of Corsicana, Texas, about 50 miles southeast of Dallas. As a young child, his family moved to El Dorado, Arkansas, where they remained until Lefty was a teenager. Although the family would always call him 'Sonny,' since he was the first boy in the family, the nickname 'Lefty' was acquired during a school fight with another boy. The nickname—which came because Lefty led with his left hand in the fight—stuck with him throughout his life, even though Lefty played his guitar right-handed.

As a child, Lefty loved music and began playing guitar at a young age, even securing a spot on a children's radio show on the local station KELD at the age of 12. When the Frizzell family moved back to Texas, Lefty won a talent contest in Dallas, which bolstered the youngster’s ambition to continue in music, which he did, alternating between working in the Texas oilfields and performing at honky-tonks on the weekends.

In 1945, Lefty wed Alice Harper, when both of them were 16 years old and too young to get married without parental permission. Soon afterward their first child, Lois, was born, and in 1946 Lefty and his new family moved to New Mexico in search of a better life, first to Capitan and then to Roswell, a then-booming Army town close to the west Texas border. Lefty pursued singing and writing songs in Roswell, while Alice worked at a downtown café. A local musician had a Wilcox-Gay disc recorder, and Lefty begged to get some of his songs recorded on the primitive device, such was his desire to become a professional singer.

Times were tough and the family nearly starved to death, circumstances made worse by Lefty's tendency to get in trouble with the law. Eight days after the legendary Roswell 'U.F.O.' crash happened in July 1947, Lefty was arrested and served six months in the Roswell jail for what he called "fightin' and carryin' on"  in a later interview. In reality, the charges were statutory rape, a married 19-year old man caught with a 14-year old girl. The time Lefty spent in jail just about killed him, wondering if Alice would take their new baby Lois and leave. Whether 'U.F.O.' crashes or captured alien beings played into the equation, Lefty wrote the first of many future hit songs in the Roswell jail in September 1947, I Love You A Thousand Ways. The song was a plaintive apology to his wife Alice for his misdeeds.

Upon release in early 1948, Lefty and family moved back to Texas, where eventually he would set up a residency at the Ace of Clubs in Big Spring, a club gig that would last more than a year. Lefty's original songs were popular with the local crowds, and on many occasions people recommended that Lefty should try making records.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

I just felt obligated to send you all a little feedback on the Lefty Frizzell "Article From Life" CD set that you recently released. I just purchased it from Amazon last week. Yes, it was a little expensive but this set is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS and worth every last penny of that purchase price! I was simply blown away by the quality, not only the quality of the restoration of these recordings themselves, but the quality of the set itself, the box, the picture book, the audio book. This set is a true treasure. The obvious amount of work that has gone into the making of this CD set has not gone unnoticed. I am simply blown away, and just wanted to send my most sincerest and heartfelt "THANK YOU". Bravo Bear Family!

David Frizzell Book

The revised book for this box set is well updated. Unfortunately, it does not contain detailed information for CD 13 - 20.

Superb Box set

It would be difficult to over-praise this magnificent box set featuring one of the very best country singers ever.I t is stacked full of treasures and is beautifully presented and packaged. Spent most of yesterday listening to Lefty's fabulous music and have only skimmed the surface of this fabulous set.

Vielen Dank an Bear Family!

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - New York Times While streaming opened doors for many of 2018's most exciting new artists, retrospective boxed sets and photo books held the keys to gems from the past, from a revelatory 50th anniversary reissue of "The Beatles" (known best as the White Album) to "More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series Vol. 14," an expanded version of Bob Dylan's 1975 masterpiece, "Blood on the Tracks." Here, the pop music critics of The New York Times choose some of the most notable collections of 2018.

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - AllMusicargued that when they released this 14-LP Frizzell retrospective His Life, His Music in 1984, the label earned international recognition, and their 1992 sequel, Life's Like Poetry, inaugurated their golden era of releasing massive, comprehensive CD box sets, weighing in at a hefty 12 CDs. In the quarter-century since its release, Bear Family has compiled larger sets, many working from the template of Life's Like Poetry, so that the original 1992 set began to seem a little quaint. Bear Family remedied that situation with the 2018 release of An Article from Life, which expands the original 12-disc box to a whopping 20 CDs. This significant expansion is slightly misleading, however. Those extra eight CDs are devoted to the audiobook of I Love You a Thousand Ways: The Lefty Frizzell Story, a biography written and narrated by his brother David Frizzell.

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - theseconddisc.com The music of William Orville “Lefty” Frizzell (1928-1975), one of the most influential honky-tonk singers of all time, has long been a cornerstone of the Bear Family catalogue. The German reissue specialists first compiled the Frizzell oeuvre in 1984 as a 14-LP box set, updating that in 1992 on 12 CDs. Now, more than 25 years later, the Bears have returned to the country-and-western troubadour’s career for the most definitive chronicle ever. An Article from Life: The Complete Recordings has every one of Frizzell’s original recordings presented on 20 CDs in a package also including a comprehensive hardcover book. Inspired by his hero, “the singing brakeman” Jimmie Rodgers, Lefty (so named for his left hook in a schoolyard fight, not a Golden Gloves match as legend has sometimes had it) had sensed by age twelve that his destiny was in song. In his earliest performing gigs, he began to broaden his repertoire to tunes by Ernest Tubb and Roy Acuff. Born in Texas and raised in Arkansas, the local talent made waves on radio in New Mexico. While his theme song was Ernest Tubb’s “I Ain’t Going Honky-Tonking Any More,” he not only kept honky-tonking, but made the country-and-western style his own. His burgeoning career was almost derailed in 1947 when he was found guilty of statutory rape. He served six-months in the Roswell, NM county jail, and while there wrote the words that would later be fashioned into one of his most memorable songs. “I Love You, I’ll Prove It a Thousand Ways” was addressed to his wife Alice, who was left behind with their daughter Lois while he served his time.

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - Rolling Stone
Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - Rolling Stone William Orville Frizzell was a classic country contradiction: a teenage jailbird and chronic alcoholic who wrote thoroughly believable songs of heartbreak and redemption; a massive star in the early and mid-Fifties, in the wake of Hank Williams’ passing, who endured his own version of the latter’s downward spiral, bereft of hits in the Sixties and dead of a stroke in 1975, only 47. But even in free fall, Frizzell was a pivotal influence on singers across the country-rock divide, from George Jones and Willie Nelson to John Fogerty and Levon Helm, who covered Frizzell’s bleak 1959 masterpiece “Long Black Veil” to immortal effect 10 years later on the Band’s Music From Big Pink, with Rick Danko singing lead. At 20 CDs, An Article From Life is everything from Frizzell’s tumultuous life on record including 78’s, 45’s, LP cuts, outtakes, live material and an audio documentary by his younger brother David, also a country singer. “If you’ve got the money, I’ve got the time,” Lefty sang on his 1950 breakout hit. Both are well spent here.

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - mykindofcountry. It wasn’t a great year for reissues but there were some bright spots. As always our British and European friends lead the way. Also, please note that these can take a while for foreign titles to become available from US suppliers, so it may be into 2019 before these are generally available. In those cities that still have adequate recorded music stores (sadly, a rare commodity these days), it can be a real thrill finding a label you’ve not encountered before reissuing something you’ve spent decades seeking. It can be worthwhile to seek out the foreign affiliates of American labels for recordings that the American affiliate hasn’t reissued. For example, there are Capitol recordings not reissued in the US that are available on the UK or European EMI labels. For the rest of us, scanning the internet remains the best alternative. Unfortunately as the sales of physical CDs continue to plummet, so does the willingness of labels, domestic and foreign, to invest in reissuing material by second and third tier artists. Still missing in action are the catalogues of such significant artists as Liz Anderson, Wilma Burgess, Johnny Darrell, Jack Greene, The Hager Twins, Freddie Hart, Warner Mack, Kenny Price and David Rogers. While there has been a slight uptick in vinyl sales and reissues, most of that has been of only the very top selling artists (and at $22 to $33 per title). Anyway …

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - Ugly Things LEFTY FRIZZELL — An Article from Life: The Complete Recordings (Bear Family) Box set From 1950 to early 1954, Wil-liam Orville "Lefty" Frizzell was the hottest performer in country music. Employing a drowsy, expressive baritone, the Texas-born singer-songwriter forged a series of memo-rable hits that still reside on Lonestar state jukeboxes including "If You've Got the Money I've Got The Time," "I Love You a Thousand Ways," "Al-ways Late (With your Kisses)," "I Want to Be With You Always," "Mom and Dad's Waltz," "Don't Stay Away (Till Love Grows Cold)" and "Give Me More, More, More (Of Your Kiss-es)." Just as suddenly as his stardom began, it faded dramatically. Wheth-er it was changing audience tastes, the advent of rock & roll, overex-posure or his battle with the bottle, one of America's greatest country vocalists scored with only two more major hits during a remarkably pro-lific career. Frizzell never stopped working; he continued cutting high quality, emotionally resonant music until his death in 1975. He was only 47 years-old. Bear Family initially paid tribute to Frizzell with their fine 12-CD set Life's Like Poetry in 1992. This 20-CD, 361-song collection includes everything he recorded for Colum-bia and ABC-Paramount including alternate takes, previously unre-leased songs, demos, live radio tran-scriptions, and an audio biography from his son David Frizzell. (Whose "You're the Reason God Made Okla-homa" and "I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home" were 1970s country classics.)

Press Archive - Lefty Frizzell An Article From Life - The Complete Recordings - All About Jazz Lefty Frail was one of the early popularizers of what we now know as the redneck end &country music and as Obsession is a great motivator and perhaps the greatest form of appreciation. However, that may be no more than making a virtue out of necessity. The German label, Bear Family Records has made a career of being obsessed in providing a complete accounting of American Music. Previous to this 20-CD box set, An Article From Life -The Complete Recordings was the essential At The Louisiana Hayride Tonight (2018). That collection was a great snapshot of the development of American Music. But Bear Records has a great propensity to be Don Quixote tilting at windmills and their love for country music pioneer Lefty Frizzell is a case in point. An Article From Life is not the first retrospective of the musical career of Frizzell, it is the third, and this time the definitive one.
