Video von Various - Country & Western Hit Parade - 1962 - Dim Lights, Thick Smoke And Hillbilly Music

1-CD-Album deluxe with 72-page booklet, 31 tracks. Playing time approx. 82 mns.

Nineteen-sixty-two was the year of Don Law. The forgotten pioneer of the Nashville Sound, Law was—statistically at least—more successful than Chet Atkins or Owen Bradley, and quite possibly more successful than the two of them combined. In the early 1960s, his roster comprised Marty Robbins, Ray Price, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Dean, Flatt & Scruggs, Lefty Frizzell, Carl Butler, Billy Walker, Charlie Walker, Claude King, Stonewall Jackson, George Morgan, Little Jimmy Dickens, Carl Smith, and although Johnny Horton was dead, the releases kept coming (in fact, Honky Tonk Man recharted in 1962).

Aside from his skill in assembling the finest roster in the history of country music, Law was willing to take chances. He issued Marty Robbins' El Paso when western music wasn't selling and Ray Price's hillbilly shuffles at the height of the rock 'n' roll era. He okayed Johnny Cash's protest song Ballad Of Ira Hayes and Robbins' Don't Worry with fuzztone guitar. His suave exterior notwithstanding, Law was a career adventurer. Born in London, England, in 1902, he went to Poland as a gun-toting cashier for a timber company and then to New York before ending up in Dallas as a bookkeeper for Brunswick (later Columbia) Records in 1926. There he met fellow Englishman Arthur Satherley, and together they signed artists like Bob Wills, Al Dexter, the Chuck Wagon Gang, and blues legend Robert Johnson. After a spell at Columbia's head office overseeing educational records, Law was a salesman before becoming Satherley's assistant in July 1949. He took over country A&R upon Satherley's enforced retirement in May 1952.

In 1962, Law's productions hogged the top of the charts for twenty weeks, and in February that year he made Owen Bradley's Nashville studio the base of his operations. He’d persuaded Columbia to buy it for a reported $300,000, and ran the label's country division from there as an independent fiefdom until his own retirement in 1967. Interviewed in 1966 by Gene Lees, he admitted that his personal taste ran to Scarlatti and Bach, "but," he added, "I've learned to appreciate this music. And I like it. I like the spontaneity and naturalness." There was even talk in 1962 of handing newly-signed Bob Dylan to Law. In his first 'Rolling Stone' interview, Dylan talked of meeting Law in New York. “I was about to record for him, and never did," he said. The pairing wasn’t quite as far-fetched as it seemed. A few years later, Law made a point of signing Sara and Maybelle Carter who were as raw if not as polemical as Dylan. No doubt to his great surprise, Law had just witnessed the re-release of the recordings he'd made with Delta blues legend Robert Johnson in 1936 and '37. The 1970 release of the second volume featured a front cover illustration almost certainly based on Law's recollection of the sessions.
