Lefty Frizzell: Time Out For The Blues (LP)

Video von Lefty Frizzell - Time Out For The Blues (LP)

(Southern Routes) 16 tracks

Lefty Frizzell was an artistic giant who ex-erted a powerful influence over country music. He introduced an original vocal style that profoundly influenced George Jones, Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, Randy Travis and still echoes through contemporary country. An illimitably creative stylist who enjoyed some of the most dramat-ic, record setting commercial successes by any singer, Frizzell was also a star crossed fool who, thanks to his seemingly unquenchable thirst for hard liquor, died almost broke and nearly forgot-ten.

His is one of the most bittersweet country music sagas, but Frizzell left behind an astonish-ing trove of near perfect performances and un-forgettable songs. Where Hank Williams' vocals were sharp and angular, Lefty's was all pliant curves, a malleable, spontaneous, almost slurred sound, one where luxuriously drawn out vowels were reshaped in deliciously mellow new configurations; his appeal and tone were not dissimilar to smooth country crooners like Eddy Arnold and Tommy Duncan, but Lefty's resolutely good-timing honky-tonk ways were unmistakable Born March 31 in Corsicana Texas, as the son of a wild cat oilman Frizzell's childhood was an unstable, semi itinerant existence; music was al-ways a powerful force in his life and Frizzell, like fellow Lone Star staters Gene Autry and Ernest Tubb, grew up idolizing Jimmie Rodgers but used the Yodeling Brakeman's distinctive ap-proach as a launching pad for what became his own equally singular style.

As a youth, Frizzell set out on his own and quickly became the consummate teenage honky tonk roughneck, barnstorming through the dance halls, taverns and beer joints of the sprawl-ing post-war Southwestern Desert. Thanks to an alliance with a young guitarist named Norm Stephens, whose crackling brand of hot take-off guitar perfectly complemented the singer's fast-evolving vocals, Frizell was cooking up a high-voltage, updated honky tonk, one that mixed hedonistic bar room mayhem with an in-creasingly perfected sense of the poetic. This weird combination was shaken by circumstance and mythology into a richly emotional form of expression in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947—with an arrest, for statutory rape, that precisely coin-cided with the infamous UFO crash. Languishing under a six month sentence in the Roswell hoosegow, the nineteen year old Frizell experienced a feverish, guilt-fueled explosion of creativity, churning out a series of songs that within a few years would result in his unprece-dented feat of placing 4 songs in the Billboard Country singles chart's Top 5 concurrently (an achievement that has never been rivalled).

His classic "I Love You, I'll Prove it a Thousand Ways" began life as letter of apology to his beloved wife Alice, and by the time Dallas studio wizard and Columbia records talent scout Jim Beck caught Lefty's live show in 1950, the singer, with relaxed molasses drawl, playful nature, frank unabashed sentimentality, warmth and down home charm, was already a local sensation. Together, Beck and Frizzell, with dazzlingly ideal recordings like "Always Late (With Your Kisses)" would make musical history. Frizzell's stage show was also a far more lively than was usual at the time, he was demonstrably physical—Lefty moved, swung his arms, snapped his fingers, and very actively grooved along. country singer Freddie Hart, who worked as crew member on a Hank Williams-Lefty Frizzell co-headline tour, described the effect Lefty had on female listeners are similar to that of Elvis. Despite a respectable run of chart hits and steady bookings, Frizzell, by the late 1950's, had effectively run his career into the ground.

Based in Southern California, he concentrated more on pleasure than business and tended to play the same circuit of clubs and dancehalls repeatedly, an almost self-destructive practice that left him overexposed and frequently underpaid. Frizzell enjoyed two subsequent creative and commercial rallies, with the early 60's success of number one hit "Saginaw, Michigan" and his ma-jestic 1970's stint on ABC Records, where, collabo-rating with songwriter Sanger D. "Whitey" Shafer, Frizzell introduced a whole new of series of in-stant country standards, each of them a lovingly wrought testament to the singer's undiminished creativity and interpretive prowess. Ironi,ally, it wasn't Lefty, but newcomer Johnny Rodriguez who took the Frizzell-Shafer gem "That's the Way Love Goes" to the top of the charts in 1974, but by that point. Lefty's days were numbered to a tragically short amount. In July of the following year, Frizell suddenly suffered a massive stroke and passed away, The shadow of obscurity which enveloped began to fade after Willie Nelson's 1977 tribute "To Lefty From Willie" and his 1982 Hall of Fame induction, and appreciation of Frizzell's im-pact and influence has grown steadily ever since.

Artist description "Frizzell, Lefty"

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.
