(DVD mit 12-seitigem Booklet, DVD-pak, 27 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer: 86:57) --

Die 'Town Hall Party' gehörte Anfang 1952 zu den ersten Country Music Shows, die im amerikanischen Fernsehen ausgestrahlt wurden und lief dort bis zum Beginn des Jahres 1961. Sie kam jeden Samstag aus einem Theater in Compton, einem Vorort von Los Angeles. Die Bühne war hergerichtet wie eine alte Scheune dies sollte dieselbe Stimmung vermitteln, die schon drei Jahrzehnte zuvor bei den Live-Shows vorherrschte, die über den Hörfunk gesendet worden waren.

Die 'Town Hall Party' wurde rund um einen hauseigenen Interpretenstamm entwickelt, der einem 'Who's Who' der Westküsten-Szene glich mit Künstlern wie Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond und Tommy Duncan. Gastgeber waren Jay Stewart (er präsentierte später auch die TV-Quiz-Show 'Let's Make A Deal') und Tex Ritter. In die wöchentlich ausgestrahlte Show wurden stets auch hochkarätige Gäste eingeladen. Zu den Gästen gehörten Top-Stars wie Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Eddie Cochran, The Collins Kids, Freddie Hart, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Merle Lindsay, Bob Luman, Carl Perkins, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, Hank Snow und Gene Vincent. -- Inzwischen hat die 'Town Hall Party' ein neues Medium für sich erobert: Unsere DVD-Serie, gestartet 2002, präsentiert Auftritte einzelner Künstler aus verschiedenen 'Town Hall'-Konzerten; außerdem gibt es komplette Various-Artists-Shows. Völlig neu remastered und mit farbigen Booklets ausgestattet, garantieren diese DVDs eine perfekte Wiedergabe der Atmosphäre, des künstlerischen Könnens und des Sounds einer längst vergangenen Ära der Country Music.

Town Hall Party DVDs

The Town Hall Party was one of the first country music shows to be broadcast on American television in early 1952 and ran until early 1961, coming every Saturday from a theater in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. The stage was set up like an old barn - this was supposed to convey the same atmosphere that had already prevailed three decades earlier at the live shows that had been broadcast on the radio.

The stage was set up like an old barn

The show - with up to 2000 spectators in the hall - was initially broadcast live on the radio station KFI. However, the spread increased enormously when NBC took over the nationwide broadcast. And when television was switched on with KTTV-TV, the individual shows even lasted up to three hours. The popularity was so great that Columbia Records released the LP'Town Hall Party' in 1958 - with many performers who belonged to the tribe of the show.

Perfect reproduction of the atmosphere

Our DVD series, launched in 2002, presents performances by individual artists from various'Town Hall' concerts; there are also complete Various Artists shows. Completely remastered and equipped with colorful booklets, these DVDs guarantee a perfect reproduction of the atmosphere, artistic skills and sound of a long gone era of country music.
