Various - Greetings From: Greetings From Alabama (CD)

(And More Bears Records) 25 tracks (69:35) 24 page booklet 

With the release of 'Greetings From Texas' and 'Greetings From Tennessee', '…and more bears records' inaugurated its project on regional music. Now we have added 'Greetings from Oklahoma, 'Greetings From Hawaii,' 'Greetings From Georgia,' and 'Greetings from Alabama.'

Each CD in the series features a generous collection of songs focused upon a particular state. In true '…and more bears' fashion, we will include both well-known titles (such as Oklahoma Hills and Everybody Does It In Hawaii) as well as more obscure items drawn from the 'deep catalogue' of numerous record companies. No matter how much of a patriot or a record collector you are, this series will manage to surprise you. Each entry will also feature a blend of famous artists like Hank Williams and Willie Nelson rubbing shoulders with singers who were barely household names in their own homes. Their common goal is to sing the pride of life in a particular state.

States have separate identities that help Americans distinguish themselves from one another. When 'Tonight Show' host Jay Leno happens to mention the name of a state during his nightly monologue, it’s usually followed by scattered but wild cheering from the audience. Everyone understands. That noisy response is telling millions of people, "I’m from there! I’m so proud of being from Tennessee or Alabama or Virginia that I’m sitting here shouting and applauding like a fool."  Being proud of where you come from is a passionate business and sometimes that pride just can’t be contained by national borders. This series is all about regional pride ("I’m an American, hell yes! But I’m also a Texan!").

Each CD will be accompanied by a humorous but informative essay by music historian Hank Davis. The songs we select will represent the decades from the 1940s through the 1990s, although the lion’s share of the selections will be more vintage or 'classic' country music. But don’t be misled: our emphasis will remain firmly on enjoyment! These CDs will not be scholarly collections of dusty old artefacts. They will be programmed for listenability, but they’ll still keep any native son smiling with pride. Thankfully, you don’t have to be from Oklahoma, Hawaii, Georgia, Alabama, Texas or Tennessee to enjoy the music those great states have inspired.

Greetings From ... CD-Album-Series by Bear Family

This series featuring the various regions of the United States is launched with the spotlight on the nation’s foremost areas for country music, Tennessee and Texas. Each cd contains a generous 25 tracks with the compilations combining the familiar with the lesser known, both artist and songwise.

With the name of the state in each song title, the Tennessee collection comes up with some all time favourites – like Jimmy Martin’s Tennessee, Pee Wee King’s Tennessee Waltz (naturally) and Eddy Arnold’s Tennessee Stud, with the lesser knows … Tears, … Blues, … Boogie, … Jive and … Rock ‘n’ Roll (among others) perhaps providing a first airing for some listeners. Likewise, with the Texas collection: Ernest Tubb’s Waltz Across Texas, Roy RogersYellow Rose Of Texas and Bob Wills/Leon Rausch’s Deep In The Heart Of Texas certainly don’t need any introductions while Love You As Big As Texas, Texas Silver Zephyr, Two Texas Boys and A Texas Honky Tonk may be new found delights to many listeners.

The assortment of artists (not always a citizen of the State they’re proclaiming the virtues of) similarly range from the very famous to the relatively obscure. Ernest Tubb, Tex Ritter, Rex Allen, Willie Nelson, Hank Snow, Pee Wee King, Hank Williams, Bobby Bare and Johnny Cash are among the music’s foremost contributors while Jimmie Logsdon, Zeb Turner, Jimmie Dolan, Gene O’Quin and Ole Rasmussen would probably be only known to the more specialist record buyers (and several of them not known at all if it weren’t for Bear Family releases!).  There’s a couple of curiosities in the Texas collection: Say Pardner by Cowboys And Indians (an outfit no one seems to know anything about, apart from the fact this record was played on AFN in an age long ago) and  the non-country sounding group The Offenders (Can’t Get The Hell Out Of Texas) which actually comprised Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, Jimmy Day and David Zettner.

These very entertaining, highly listenable CDs are accompanied by full colour booklets in which Hank Davis throws a non-too scholarly look at the history of the respective state and the music, along with a photo gallery of all the artists (apart from the enigmatic Cowboys & Indians. Any clues, anyone?).
