Unchained Melody is the world's most famous love song. Every generation from the 1950s to the present has danced and romanced to its memorable lyrics and melody. Now Bear Family has gathered together 31 versions of the song, from the original 1950s hits by Roy Hamilton, Al Hibbler & Les Baxter to the influential 1965 version by The Righteous Brothers, which entranced a whole new generation when it appeared in the 1990 hit movie, 'Ghost'.

Did you know that Unchained Melody was the theme song from a long-forgotten 1954 film called 'Unchained' ? This CD presents the never-before issued movie performance of the song - called Lonely Rivers when it first appeared.

From instrumental versions by Max Greger and Chet Atkins to soulful vocals by Harry Belafonte, Willie Nelson, Gene Vincent and Elvis, this is the ultimate collection of a song that has left its romantic mark on millions of people the world over. The package includes an illustrated booklet with detailed track notes by musicologist Hank Davis. It is estimated that there have been over 1000 recordings of Unchained Melody in a variety of languages. We couldn’t present all of them here, but fans of the song will recognize this package as the deepest and most extensive tribute to the song ever released.

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?"

 
From: Feuerbach 2014-03-13 14:42:34

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

 
From: Walther 2014-02-10 14:47:13

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