Ritchie Valens: In Concert At Pacoima Jr. High (LP)

(Rhino) 10 tracks - Reproduction of the original 1960 'DelFi' album! Cut-out LP!

Ritchie Valens in concert at Pacoima Jr. High
We at Del-Fi have released the following recorded Assembly because somehow the word got out that it had been recorded, and the requests from Ritchie's Fan Clubs are so numerous that we finally decided to include the Assembly as part of this new album. We realize that the recorded sound is not as clear as we would like it, but when recording .on-the-spot" this sometimes happens. At any rate this album is a rare opportunity to hear the great Ritchie Valens in person, and to hear him as he was in everyday life. As you listen, you will realize what is great entertainer he was, as well as having such a wonderfully natural sense of humor. Also his great humbleness is felt from the first works he speaks. Gail Smith, the President of the Los Angeles Ritchie Valens Memorial Fan Club, is the Mistress of Ceremonies and she was is very close friend of Ritchie's. They were classmates at Pacoima Jr. High School. We owe her many thanks for conducting the Assembly in such a fine fashion. Ironically, Ritchie sings one of the songs that made Eddie Cochran famous, 'Summertime Blues' Ritchie was very close to him, forming their friendship when they appeared together at the Loew's State Theatre in New York. Little did Ritchie know that Eddie Cochran was to die in a crash also. Another tune, 'From Beyond' although an instrumental, expresses Ritchie's inherent sadness felt in so many of his songs: such as 'Donna','Bluebeirds Over The Mountain', 'Now You're Gone' and others found in his first album 'Ritchie Valens' and his second album 'Ritchie'.

 By contrast his great feeling for humor is expressed in 'Summertime Blues' and 'Come On Let's Go' (which may sound slightly different from his record; but he never sang a song the same way twice). Also by contrast his endless vitality comes through when he sings the great hit 'La Bamba': So here we go...as we listen to the only 'on the spot' recording of the one and only 'Ritchie Valens in concert at Pacoima Jr. High'

Side two of this album has been devoted to presenting some of the recordings that 'may have been' had Ritchie lived. These are fragments of ideas not yet polished or completed ... ideas that Ritchie recorded at my home from time to time as we worked preparing new material. Many of these tunes have no names so I will describe them prior to each track. The first track you will hear is an idea for is rhythm song and, as far as I know, no lyrics have been written to it yet.

'This next track, No.2 shows the influence of thereat talent, Bo Diddley, who appeared with Ritchie on the same bill with Eddie Cochran for twelve days during the Allen Freed Christmas Show in New York. Ritchie had just returned from this engagement when he recorded the track you are about to hear. Track 3...One of Ritchie's greatest records was a Mexican folk song titled 'La Bamba' which he adapted. This next track was to be the follow-up to 'La Bamba' ... its title: 'Malaguena!' This song also is a great Mexican standard and, as you can hear, would have been another million seller we are sure. Although Ritchie had not put his voice to the song as yet, if you try, you can picture him singing it...with all the fire that was in his guitar playing, laying a foundation for his great voice. The next track, 4, is the beginning of a song about a boy who loved to dance. In case you cannot understand all the lyrics, we have put them down here for you to read: '

Well now, little girl, I'm getting so tired just waiting for you darling. I want to get to the dance tonight; I want to dance all the way. Well now, everytime I come here You're fixing your hair. Come on, little baby, Let's do the hop and rock it up tonight, dear; 'Cause I want to just dance, dance, dance. Well now, just rock along baby; You know, rock along baby. Let us rock little darlin: gonna rock it up tonight.'

The final track is a tune Ritchie called 'let's Rock And Roll'. Only part of the song was completed, but it had all the indications of being another 'Come On Let's Go': So here is the final song in the album: A perfect cross-section of the great Ritchie Valens, singing the songs he would have made famous had he lived.
Bob Keene, President Del-Fi Records, Inc.

Ritchie Valens

Richard Steven Valenzuela wurde am 13. Mai 1941 in Los Angeles geboren. Wie Buddy Holly machte Ritchie schon sehr früh Musik. Schon zu Beginn seiner Jugend beherrschte Ritchie Gitarre, Trompete und Schlagzeug. Im Oktober 1957 trat er einer lokalen LA-Band namens The Silhouettes bei. Ritchie war erst sechzehn Jahre alt, und schon war die Begeisterung über den jungen Musiker groß. Im Mai 1958 erreichte Bob Keane, der Besitzer einer Hollywood-Plattenfirma namens Del-Fi Records, dieses Summen. Ritchie wurde zu einem Vorsingen zu Keane nach Hause eingeladen, und basierend auf diesem Vorsingen wurde er für einen Vertrag verpflichtet. Auch, wie Buddy Holly, war eine Namensänderung angebracht, und Richard Valenzuela wurde zu Ritchie Valens. Ritchie hatte einige bescheidene Erfolge mit ein paar Singles, aber dann kam eine doppelte A-Seite Single mit "Donna" und "La Bamba". Beide erhielten viel Airplay und wurden zu großen Hits für Ritchie. Niemand hätte damals je gedacht, dass es seine letzten sein würden. Mitte 1958 hatte Ritchie die High School verlassen, um auf Tour zu gehen. Er trat mehrmals auf Dick Clarks amerikanischem Bandstand auf und teilte sich auch die Bühne in Hawaii mit Buddy Holly und Paul Anka. Es sah so aus, als wäre Ritchie Valens ein Schloss für den Ruhm, als er im Januar 1959 für die Winter Dance Party verpflichtet wurde.

Die Winter Dance Party war eine Rock and Roll Tour, die den Mittleren Westen der Vereinigten Staaten für 24 Shows in 24 Nächten durchquerte. Die Tour umfasste einige der beliebtesten Rock and Roll-Acts der damaligen Zeit. Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens und der Big Bopper, zusammen mit Dion und den Belmonts und einigen anderen, wurden alle unterschrieben. Die Sänger reisten alle mit einem Tourbus, der ständig kaputt ging. Meistens funktionierten die Heizgeräte nicht, und ein paar der Musiker fingen sich eine schlimme Erkältung und/oder die Grippe ein. Im schlimmsten Fall gab es sogar einige wenige, die eine leichte Erfrierungen hatten. Das war der Stand der Dinge, als die Winter Dance Party in Clear Lake, Iowa, für die elfte Show der Tour stattfand. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte Buddy Holly genug gesehen. Er beschloss, ein Flugzeug (eine einmotorige Beechcraft Bonanza mit vier Passagieren) zu chartern, um sie nach Fargo, North Dakota, zu fliegen, das direkt neben Moorhead, Minnesota, der nächsten Station der Tour, lag. Waylon Jennings, der mit Buddy Holly spielte und später ein Country-Musikstar werden sollte, sollte mit Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens und dem Piloten Roger Peterson im Flugzeug sitzen.

Der Big Bopper hatte eine schreckliche Erkältung in Verbindung mit der Grippe und konnte keine weitere Nacht im gefrorenen Bus überstehen. Er flehte Jennings um seinen Platz im Flugzeug an, und Waylon gab gnädigerweise seinen Platz an den Big Bopper auf. Tommy Allsup und Ritchie Valens warfen am Ende eine Münze, um zu sehen, wer im Flugzeug fahren würde. Valens "gewann" den Wurf und nahm Platz im Flugzeug. Alte Freunde Waylon Jennings und Buddy Holly tauschten sich schnell aus, bevor jeder seine Transportmittel bestieg. Buddy erzählte Jennings, dass er hoffte, dass der alte Bus eine Panne hatte, während Jennings Buddy erzählte, dass er hoffte, dass sein verdammtes Flugzeug abgestürzt sei. Obwohl sie scherzten, ist es etwas, worüber sich Jennings für den Rest seines Lebens schuldig fühlte. Gegen 1:00 Uhr am Morgen des 3. Februar 1959 startete das Flugzeug zu einem heftigen Schneesturm. Der Pilot, Roger Peterson, war erst 21 Jahre alt und unerfahren und hätte in dieser Nacht nicht fliegen dürfen, besonders nicht in die Zähne eines Sturms. Als das Flugzeug bis 3:30 Uhr morgens nicht in Fargo ankam, wurde eine Suche organisiert. Jerry Dwyer, der Besitzer von Dwyer Flying Services, von dem Buddy das Flugzeug gechartert hatte, fand das Flugzeug in einem Maisfeld nicht einmal fünf Meilen vom Flughafen entfernt. Buddy, Ritchie und JP waren alle aus dem Unfall geworfen worden, während der Pilot im Inneren festgehalten worden war. Alle wurden sofort getötet. Rock and Roll hatte gerade seine ersten Verluste erlitten.
