Carolyn Hester: Dear Companion (2-CD)

Video von Carolyn Hester - Dear Companion (2-CD)

2-CD with 52-page booklet, 60 tracks. Playing time approx. 159 mns.

Though later overshadowed in the folk diva sweepstakes by Baez and Collins, Texas-born Carolyn Hester preceded both with her 1958 debut album and, judging from this two-CD, 60-song collection of Hester's complete 1961-67 Columbia recordings (plus 9 from 1965 for Dot), may have been the most interesting of the era's folk ladies. Bob Dylan was her harmonica player on a 1961 session, and Ravi Shankar even appears on one of the 19 previously unissued tracks. Hester had an intimate and natural empathy for sparely-arranged traditional songs, yet she doesn't sound misplaced among the folk rock material (much of it previously unissued) that closes this impressively illustrated and annotated collection. It effectively traces both a neglected artist's career and the stylistic changes in the folk movement of the Sixties. The titles blend original and non-original material, and include Once I Had A Sweetheart, Simple Gifts, East Virginia, I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound, Blues Run The Game, Reason To Believe, and Outside The Window.

Bob Dylan plays harmonica on:

Artist description "Hester, Carolyn"

Carolyn Hester

 
Carolyn Hester, with her rich, haunting, quavering soprano, was one of the true pioneers of the 1960s American folk music explosion. Inspired by the examples of folk music legends of earlier decades, like Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, Hester and contemporaries like Dylan, loan Baez, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, Judy Collins, and Odetta, forged a musical movement which, for a few shining years during America's most turbulent decade, took folk music to the very center of the American cultural mainstream and provided the soundtrack for a decade of dramatic social change.
 
Yet, Carolyn Hester insists that it was always the music, the music above all else that ultimately drew her to the center of this movement.
 
From the release of her 1958 debut album, a ‘pre-folk' or ‘folkabilly‘ exploration entitled Carolyn Hester: ‘Scarlet Ribbons,‘ right up until the early 1970s when she decided to take a lengthy hiatus from recording, Hester was a pivotal figure in the folk boom. During those years, she performed often at prestigious venues like the Newport Folk Festival and the Edinburgh Folk Festival. (She and first husband, singer Richard Farina, to whom she was married briefly during the early ‘60s, were especially popular performers ill England.) She also appeared on the popular ABCTV network musical show, ‘Hootenanny,' Whose success was central to the national folk boom.
 
Hester holds other unusual distinctions, as well. At one point early ill her career, folkie supermanager Albert Grossman (Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul & Maiy, etc.) seriously considered her for the trio that eventually became Peter, Paul & Mary. In the mid-1960s, when The Saturday Evening Post devoted a feature to the folk boom, it was Hester who became their cover girl. Hester also holds the distinction of being one of the few artists signed not once, but twice, to Columbia Records by legendary producer/ executive John Hammond.
