Various Greetings From Georgia

There are a lot of reasons you should know about Georgia. For one thing, it's the largest state east of the mighty Mississippi. It's been around almost from the start: Georgia officially became a state on January 2, 1788, making it the fourth addition to the growing Union. And there it sits today – a prime piece of lovely geography, boasting mountains, rivers, historic towns and modern urban centers - bordered by Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and the Atlantic Ocean. ,

If you’re not from Georgia or one of its neighbors, what are you likely to know about this deep-south state? Probably Georgia’s two most visible champions in the past quarter-century are President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) and media mogul Ted Turner, an adopted southerner whose dreaded Atlanta Braves have been sold as 'America’s team.' Another of Georgia’s claims to fame is Margaret Mitchell, author of 'Gone With the Wind,' which won the Pulitzer prize for literature in 1937. In addition, if you’re a Julia Roberts fan, you probably know that she hails from Smyrna, Georgia. Moving a bit down the cultural food chain, a few dedicated collectors might recall that the original Cabbage Patch Dolls were born, so to speak, in Cleveland, Georgia. A few other things before we get down to the music: Georgia produces about 40% of the chicken consumed in the US. That's a lot of poultry, explaining the oft-heard claim that in Georgia 'Chicken is King and Jesus is Lord.' Gobble gobble, amen! ,

You probably also know that a lot of that chicken gets washed down by a steady stream of Coca Cola, another native Georgia invention. Georgia is known as 'The Peach State.' It's true – they're everywhere. In Atlanta, there are, by last count, 55 different streets that have 'Peachtree' in their name. Even legendary baseball player Ty Cobb was known through his association with the state fruit. Cobb was called 'The Georgia Peach.' ,

Georgia is identified by one of the most famous compositions in all of American popular music – Georgia On My Mind. Not surprisingly, this 1930 composition by Stuart Gorrell and Hoagy Carmichael has become the state's official song. It is likely that every time someone enjoys a hit version of the song (e.g., Ray Charles in 1960, Willie Nelson in 1978) there is a corresponding spike in Georgia’s tourist revenues. Since we’ve eased into the topic of music, let’s consider some of the highlights presented on this CD. To begin, we offer a less well-known version of the Georgia state song by pop music legend Frankie Laine. This track dates from 1949. Pat Boone follows with a surprisingly swinging version of the Harlem Globetrotters theme song, Sweet Georgia Brown – a title we also include as an instrumental romp by Chet Atkins along with Homer &, Jethro, doing business as the Country All-Stars.

Country music legend Lefty Frizzell offers an extremely strong performance on Watermelon Time In Georgia. It's a reminder that the saga of displaced southerners laboring away in the frozen north, a tale poignantly told by Bobby Bare in his 1963 hit Detroit City, has many sides to it. A big-budget highly dramatic production surrounds Tompall Glaser on his reading of Burn, Georgia, Burn. Glaser's track is followed by another country legend, Waylon Jennings, offering a tale of cheating and vengeance on Cedartown, Georgia. Hank Snow moves the venue from Cedartown to Waycross, Georgia, but deals with exactly the same themes and the same dire consequences in Miller's Cave .

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?).
