Ferlin Husky: Gone But Not Forgotten (CD)

(2016/Country Rewind) 14 tracks.
Ferlin Husky (aka: Tex Terry, Terry Preston and Simon Crum), was a timeless entertainer, actor, musician, comedian, vocalist and storyteller. He was equally adept at the genres of traditional honky-tonk, ballads, spoken recitations, and rockabilly pop tunes. He had two dozen Top 20 hits in the Billboard country charts between 1953 and 1975; his versatility and matinee-idol looks propelling a seven-decade entertainment career. 'Gone But Not Forgotten' is a look back at this great entertainer's talent.

"There were a lot of years when nobody in the business could follow Ferlin Husky," said Merle Haggard, Country Iviusic Hall of Earner and Grand Ole Opry member. "He was the biggest live act of the day. A great entertainer."
A new Ferlin Husky album is a rare and unexpected treat for fans of traditional country music. Husky sold more than 20 million records, mostly in the 50s and early 60s. He passed away in 2011 at the age of 85 and fans believed that was the end of Husky's music... until now. Executive Producer and President of Country Rewind Records, Tom Gramuglia, discovered tapes of Husky that had never before been commercially released. The recordings originate from a series of sixteen 15-minute shows titled "The Navy Hoedown Show'', and later, "Hootenavy", recorded at Scotty ivloore's Music City Recorders Studio and at Columbia Recording Studios in Nashville be-tween 1972 and 1973. The shows were broadcast over the American Forces Net-work, with Husky singing some of his own hits and other popular songs. After the
broadcast, the master tapes were put aside and forgotten. Gramuglia rescued the tapes, and with the blessing of the Husky family, turned them over to producer Paul Martin whose skillful touch has breathed new life into these lost'tracks. "I have always believed in the healing power of music," said Martin. "My favorite part of this project was bringing Ferlin's family into my studio to put backing vocals on his hit "Timber, I'm Fallin". It was so special seeing his wife, daughters, grandsons, son-in law, and even a few friends singing and laughing one minute, then being reminded of the bittersweet moment and there would be a few tears shed the next. It was simply heartwarming! When we were all done and everybody was leaving the studio, it was as if his family had just stopped by to pay a visit with their dear husband/father/grandfather. Because of these special recordings, Ferlin will continue to live on." With his resonant voice and good looks, Ferlin Husky was a truly versa-tile entertainer. He was a singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor and even a comedian, but made his most lasting impression as a live performer. He was one of the first country artists to have his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and toured wide-ly in the USA and overseas. He topped the Country charts in 1957 with "Gone," and scored another Number One in 1960 with "Wings of a Dove"that became one of his signature songs. Martin had a hard time picking a favorite song from the project. 'Tim-ber, I'm Falling' is a great song penned by one of my songwriting heroes, Dallas Frazier," he notes. "His remakes of his many hits like "Wings Of A Dove" or "Sweet Misery" are just wonderful. His unique interpretations of"Alabama Jubilee" and "Green Green Grass Of I lome" are sure to make you put them right up beside their original counterparts!' Martin added, "I believe if Ferlin were still here with us today, he would have no problem with this previously unreleased material being made available to his fans. I am willing to bet he will make some new fans with this project too!"
The title 'entertainer' is used frequently to describe people who sing, dance or tell jokes, some for a few months and some for years. To perform all three for a lifetime is rare. Ferlin Husky accomplished that and more.
A quick look at Wikipedia shows dozens of hits, both on the country charts as well as crossovers to the pop charts. He appeared on TV shows and hosted a few. He also appeared in several movies and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The expertly remastered 'live' recordings on this record will allow you to enjoy this very talented entertainer as if you were there. We hope you will enjoy this record as much as we do.

Artist description "Husky, Ferlin"

Ferlin Husky

Ferlin Husky was a unique American country music superstar.

He was born Ferlin Eugene Husky on December 3, 1925, on a farm in Cantwell, in the east Desloge area, Missouri. One of his uncles taught him how to play guitar before age 10. In his latter childhood he became interested in music, especially those by Red Foley and Bing Crosby.

Then there was World War II interrupting Ferlin's musical start. He became a fighting soldier at age 19, and was sent over to the European theatre. He was a gunner on a troop vessel and experienced the horror of D-Day at the coast of Cherbourg, Normandy, France, June 1944.

Directly after the war Husky began working as a dee-jay in the California area of Bakersfield. Western star Smiley Burnette hired him for a tour but forced him to change his name. Burnette said, Ferlin Husky does not sound country. Ferlin started working under his first pseudonym, Terry Preston, on tour as well as on appearances in local honky tonks and juke joints in and around Bakersfield and also on various studio sessions backing other artists as a bass player.

Husky soon got his first record deal signed with the small label Four Star and a series of 11 singles was released during 1949-1951. They went well locally but not nationally. Therefore he moved from Four Star to the bigger Capitol label in '51. The connection to Capitol came from Tennessee Ernie Ford's manager who was very impressed by Ferlin's live appearances.

The first 7 Capitol 45-singles were still released as by Terry Preston – the pseudonym. 1953 saw the 8th single, 'Hank's Song'. It was the first issue under his real name Ferlin Husky. A solid number that sold well. Meanwhile Capitol went on to use the pseudonym Terry Preston on various Husky issues up until mid-1954. It happened then, that Husky recorded a duet with Jean Shepard, called 'A Dear John Letter' which became his first million seller. It climbed to #1 on the Billboard country charts. The song tells the story of GI John who just returned from the Korean war. John received a letter from his beloved girlfriend who quits the liaison with him as she fell in love with John's brother. This 'Dear John Letter' took America by heart. The right song at the right time. A duet answer song followed soon after, 'Forgive Me, John', became another top selling hit.

But it took until 1957 when Ferlin Husky had his first solo hit. 'Gone' was a #1 hit on Billboard's country charts for 10 weeks! It climbed to #4 on the Billboard pop charts. Husky could rerun the charts with 'Wings Of A Dove' in 1960.

Meanwhile Ferlin started another career under his second pseudonym. The mid-1950s saw a country comedy act called Simon Crum with similar success as Ferlin Husky. Best chart position for Simon Crum was the song, 'Country Music Is Here To Stay' , in October 1958, #2 dof the country music charts. Even more successful were his TV appearances when he impersonated popular American singers, including female (!) singers, the mocking way.

During the first years of the decade 1960s Ferlin's career went lower. He was still in the charts once in a while but his label Capitol Records started to focus on the California surf music wave and soon on the Beatles and the British invasion. Another main pillar of Husky was acting. He played quite a few roles in Hollywood movies, especially in the 60s and 70s. One of his most successful movies was 'Las Vegas Hillbillies', 1966, alongside Jayne Mansfield. Ferlin changed labels again in 1972 moving forward to ABC Records. Unfortunatly Husky had to face several interuptions of his career in the 1970s due to health problems. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in May 2010. Ferlin Husky died on March 17, 2011 at the age of 85.
