Never before seen performances by Johnny Horton. Rare recordings from collection of Jerry Hope. Ozark Jubilee Shows from the collection of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. A rare live concert.

When Bear Family began work on the Johnny Horton LP box sets back in the mid-1980s, just two videos traded hands among collectors: a grainy copy of 'I'm A Fishin' Man' and an 'Ed Sullivan Show' appearance. Now we have an embarrassment of riches. Finally, we see why Horton was, as his contemporaries said, a natural television performer. Amiable, good-looking, and breezily confident, he was ideal for what was then the new medium of television. Just the kind of guy you'd want to bring into your living room.

This DVD collects most of the known videotaped performances of Johnny Horton from very early in his career until just a few weeks before he was killed. There are 25 filmed performances and three bonus audio performances spanning the years from 1953 until 1960. He not only sings his biggest hits, North To Alaska, Johnny Reb, Sal's Got A Sugar Lip, Sink The Bismarck and of course The Battle Of New Orleans, but he also performs songs that won't be as familiar to collectors, like Electrified Donkey, Be Honest With Me (as part of a trio with Eddy Arnold and Molly Bee), and I'm A Fishing Man. Even though there are no published interviews with Johnny Horton, on this DVD he talks with the hosts of the Ozark Jubilee show Red Foley, Bobby Lord, and Eddy Arnold. An essential complement to Bear Family's definitive history of Johnny Horton's recordings!

A NOTE ON FILM QUALITY: Bear Family has always made a sustained commitment to quality. This DVD was sourced from original films and kinescopes, now fifty or sixty years old. Some, especially those sourced from 'Jubilee USA' kinescopes, are not as clear as we would have liked, but they are the only known copies. We feel that their historic value outweighs the technical imperfections.

Ein Booklet mit Details zu den Filmen und velen Farbfotos, u.a. vom Fischen mit Johnny Cash, runden diese ausgezeichnete Veröffentlichung ab.

This is not only a truly wonderful piece of musical history, it's very entertaining. For those who have discovered this man's music in later years, it stands as a testimony to his greatness as a writer and performer.
