Für Liebhaber und Fans

Das waren noch Zeiten mit der guten alten Musikbox. Bis einer kam und sechsmal dasselbe Stück hintereinander drückte. Bekloppt. Aber dasselbe Stück 31 mal hintereinander auf einer CD? Gibt es! Aber in unterschiedlichen Versionen. Eine Sache für Liebhaber und Fans eines Titels. Z.B. „Unchained Melody“, bestens bekannt von den Righteous Brothers, zusammen gestellt von der Bärenfamilie (Bear Family Records). Einfach super. Natürlich kommt keiner an die Brüder, die die CD eröffnen, heran. Interessante und enttäuschende Versionen wechseln sich ab. Harry Belafonte, Pat Boone und Elvis gehen gut durch. Die Orchester- bzw. Big Band-Fassungen von Les Baxter, Ray Conniff und Max Greger und Instrumentals sind eingängig anzuhören. Die eher unbekannten Interpreten haben keinen großen Wurf dabei. US-Opernsänger Todd Duncan irritiert kurze 79 Sekunden lang. Aber immerhin: 30 Variationen - von über 170 verschiedenen Aufnahmen seit 1955 - auf einer CD sind beachtlich und für Kenner gut ausgewählt. Charlie Rich und Diana Ross konnten mich am Besten überzeugen. Für Freunde des Originals eine wahre Fundgrube!

Interessante Zusammenstellung

Bei dieser CD ging es mir insbesondere um 2 - 3 Aufnahmen bestimmter Künstler, die ich auf ihren LP/CDs in meiner Sammlung nicht gefunden habe. Sehr gut!

Gut und preiswert

Sehr gute Zusammenstellung. Es wird nie eine komplette Auflistung geben. Es fehlen aber unter anderem Cliff Richard, Gerry and the Peacemakers, Leo Sayer und Sarah Mc Lachlan. Trotzdem sehr gute und preiswerte CD.

Bis heute gibt es Hunderte von Versionen von den ersten Hitfassungen

Unchained Melody – I Hunger For Your Touch


The Righteous Brothers / Roy Hamilton / Marty Robbins / The Fleetwoods / Ricky Nelson / Harry Belafonte / Pat Boone / Todd Duncan / Chet Atkins / Gisele McKenzie / Willie Nelson / Al Hibber / Charlie Rich / Elvis / Matt Monroe / Les Baxter / Vito & The Salutations / Waylon Jennings / The Blackwells / Frankie Vaughn / Gene Vincent / Eddy Arnold / The Lettermen / David Allen Coe / Hank Snow & Chet Atkins / Frank Ifield / Diana Ross & The Supremes / Max Greger / The Dials / Ray Conniff / Phil Phillips

Wie viele andere habe auch ich immer geglaubt der Titel “Unchained Melody” habe eine Bedeutung wie “losgelöste freischwebende Melodie”, denn bei der bekannten Version der Righteous Brothers würde das ja auch irgendwie passen, Aber diese neue CD mit 31 verschiedenen Versionen des Songs belehrte mich eines Besseren. Tatsächlich gab es einen zweitklassigen Film Mitte der Fünfziger Jahre mit dem Titel “Unchained”. Dabei ging es im Plot um ein Gefängnis namens “Chino” in Kalifornien. Hauptdarsteller: Chester Moris und Barbara Hale, ebenso erfolglos wie der Film. Aber irgendwie wurde diese Melodie, im Film nur eine Minute lang, gesungen von Todd Duncan, doch tatsächlich für einen Oscar vorgeschlagen und unterlag dann “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing”.
Bis heute gibt es Hunderte von Versionen von den ersten Hitfassungen mit dem Orchester Les Baxter und der Vokalaufnahme mit Roy Hamilton über den Riesenhit der Righteous Brothers, bei dem man eigentlich nur die grandiose Stimme von Bobby Hatfield hört, bis zu Aufnahmen mit Evlis, Gene Vincent oder Frank Ifield. Bear Family hat hier eine interssante Zusammenstellung inklusive des bislang nicht veröffentlichten Originals mit Todd Dunan herausgebracht. Dazu gibt es im 30seitigem Booklet die Story des Songs und natürlich auch Informationen zu den Künstlern und Aufnahmen.

The picture on the front of the CD is from the movie 'Ghost'. The movie plays the quintessential version of 'Unchained Melody' by Mantovani several times. Yet this \best\" version of the song is NOT on the CD.

What's with that?"

13 Mar 2014

Brilliant compilation and my favorite versions are the ones from Gene Vincent & his Blue Caps and Vito & The Salutations!

10 Feb 2014

Es fehlt auf dieser Zusammenstellung die starke Version von Cliff und den Shadows.
