Marty Robbins: After Midnight (LP)

(MCA) 12 tracks

Einige Sänger sind automatisch mit der Country-Musik verbunden, Marty Robbins ist einer dieser Künstler, obwohl wir auf dieser Sammlung das Glück haben, eine andere Seite von ihm zu hören, indem wir zwölf Pop-Standards singen. Marty Robbins wurde am 26. September 1925 als eines von acht Kindern geboren. Die Familie Robbins lebte am Rande der Wüste bei Glendale, Arizona. Sein Vater war Mundharmonikaspieler und sein Großvater ein reisender Medizinmann, der seinen Enkeln Cowboy-Geschichten, Legenden und Liedern aus dem Wilden Westen erzählte. Marty vergaß diese faszinierenden Geschichten nie und benutzte einige davon als Grundlage für einige seiner eigenen Songs. Er wollte schon immer ein Cowboy-Sänger sein - Gene Autry war einer seiner Lieblingssänger aus der Kindheit. Martys Ehrgeiz wurde allmählich erreicht, zunächst in kleinen Nachtclubs. 

Der große Durchbruch ins Showgeschäft kam mit der Möglichkeit, auf einem Phoenix-Radiosender KTYL zu singen, was wiederum zu TV-Möglichkeiten und Aufnahmen führte. Die zweite Pause kam, als Jimmy Dickens, ein bereits etablierter Country-Star, in der gleichen Show wie Marty auftrat. Dickens war so beeindruckt, dass er den jungen Sänger/Songwriter einer großen Plattenfirma empfahl, die ihn anschließend für einen Plattenvertrag verpflichtete. Es dauerte nur drei Singles, bis Marty 1959 mit einer Nummer namens "I'll Go It Alone" die Charts erreichte, und das war nur der Anfang vieler weiterer Chart-Einträge. Als er in den Reihen des Showbusiness aufstieg, zog er nach Nashville, wurde Stammgast der Grand Ole Opry und vermittelte seine Fähigkeiten im Laufe der Jahre sowohl im Kino als auch im Fernsehen, wo er seine eigene Show hatte und bei unzähligen anderen auftrat. Trotz dieses vollen Terminkalenders fand er immer noch Zeit, sich im Stock-Car-Rennen zu amüsieren. Als erstklassiger Songwriter war seine musikalische Vielseitigkeit erstaunlich. Neben den straighten Country, Cowboy und Pop Standards nahm er Songs und Alben hawaiianischer, karibischer und religiöser Musik auf. Seine Leistung war außergewöhnlich, nicht nur in Bezug auf die Quantität, sondern auch auf die Qualität. Mit einem so großen Repertoire an vielseitigem Material unterstreicht diese L.P. nur eine Facette von Marty Robbins. Hören und genießen Sie Marty Robbins, die nach Mitternacht Popstandards singt.

Although the infant known as rock 'n' roll had been toddling around America for quite a while before Elvis Presley cut That's All Right on a summer's evening in July 1954, it was the break-out success of that record that brought this supposed 'new sound' to the attention of the hillbilly music industry. By 1955, what at first seemed to be a novelty success was obviously a growing trend. And although no one was sure that rock 'n' roll was here to stay, it was certainly beginning to cut into the incomes of many established country music stars.

With the craze for this new beat, it just made sense for country singers to grab a piece of the rock 'n' roll pie. Some performers were baffled by the music and it showed in their attempts. Others took to the new sound instinctually – understanding the connection to hillbilly boogie and the 'sock rhythm' of Hank Williams and the younger breed of honky-tonkers that had followed in his wake. Although these artists produced a handful of great rockabilly records, they were still wading the shallow end of the rock 'n' roll pool rather than diving fully into the deep end.

And then, there were a few singers that might have very well abandoned country music for a rock 'n' roll or pop career if things had worked out slightly differently. That's certainly the case for Marty Robbins, who for roughly a year, was definitely pointing his career in a rock 'n' roll direction without ever coming off as a poser or pretender. But Robbins was never one to rely on just one style, no matter how much success he found in that field. As he told journalist Bob Allen in 1981, "I don't want to be put in any category. I don't want to get in a rut." It was Robbins' refusal to be pigeonholed and his musical eclecticism that enabled him to record great rock 'n' roll and rockabilly records but also led him to many others fields.

If rock was the soundtrack of teenage rebellion, Robbins certainly had experience. Born September 26, 1925, near Glendale, Arizona as Martin David Robinson, his early years were spent in a poverty-stricken household with an alcoholic father who frequently vented his rage on his wife and nine children. Although his parents divorced when he was twelve, it did little to help the family's financial situation. Entering his teens, Robbins found rebellion as a way to express his anger and frustrations – engaging in petty crimes that led to several encounters with the law. His rehabilitation eventually came at the hands of the U.S. Navy. He enlisted in May 1943, and served in the Pacific where he piloted landing craft during the bloody fighting for the Solomon Islands.

But the Navy did more than reform him from a life of crime. It was while he was in the service that he first began taking an interest in performing, learning to play the guitar. Although hillbilly music was very common in Arizona, Robbins' main exposure to music as a child had been radio crooners and the singing cowboys in the Western movies he dearly loved. Many of his fellow sailors were Southerners, and it was from them that Robbins learned to appreciate hillbilly music.

When he returned to Glendale, Arizona after the war, Robbins drifted into a career as a hillbilly singer, eventually changing his name to the shorter and catchier 'Marty Robbins.' Part of the reason for his career choice was simply because he had little patience for the 8 to 5 grind of a normal job, and with many honky tonks and hillbilly radio shows scattered across the Southwest, the hillbilly field rather than pop crooning was where the most opportunities lay for breaking into the business. Early on, Robbins demonstrated a sharp business sense and the willingness to work hard at his career. Throughout the late 1940s and into the '50s Robbins kept a busy schedule working in radio and TV, along with personal appearances that ranged from Texas to California. It was this hard work, learning the business and developing his skills as a consummate entertainer that led to his signing with Columbia Records in 1951.

Starting with Robbins' first session for Columbia in November 1951, he began developing the smooth, melancholy style that led to the nickname, 'Mr. Teardrop.' It was a variation on the Eddy Arnold country crooner formula of heartbreak ballads that relied on the interplay between smooth vocals and the cry of the steel guitar. This formula led to Robbins' first two hits, I'll Go On Alone, that reached number one on the 'Billboard' Country singles chart for one week in January 1953, and I Couldn't Keep From Crying that reached number five in March 1952.
