Various Greetings From Texas


When Americans meet each other, the first question they usually ask is, "Where you from?" ,

If the answer is 'New Jersey,' 'Kansas' or 'Rhode Island,' there's often a polite silence. Followed by a change of subject. But if the answer is 'Texas,' it's not unusual to hear some genuine enthusiasm. "Really! What's it like?" ,

Like it or not, there is awe surrounding Texas. Sure, it's big. In fact, it's almost the biggest state there is. The Sons of Sam Houston probably still haven't forgiven those upstart Alaskans. But in any case the response you get goes beyond land mass. There's something about Texas. Texas is a culture. It's a way of life. People from Texas are not simply average Americans. They're Texans. There have probably been more movies about Texas than any other state, and as far as music goes….well, just read on. ,

Mind you, not all the qualities associated with Texas are admirable. Like movies and music, there are probably more jokes about Texas than there are about any other state in the union. Texans take a fair amount of ribbing about who they are and what they do. Ribbing, of course, is the least you can expect when your national cuisine is barbeque. Who can count all the jokes about Texans who die, go to Heaven (or Hell) and end up getting barbeque sauce all over the place? One way or another they manage to antagonize the guy in charge. St. Peter complains because there are pickup trucks or empty six packs all over the streets of gold. The Devil complains because a bad day in Hell is "like a spring day in Amarillo." And besides, the damned Texans are barbequing on the fires of Hell and have installed air conditioning just in case it really heats up a bit. In short, Texans take their culture with them wherever they travel, including the hereafter. ,

Texans, as well as visitors from more temperate climes, have a lot to say about Texas weather. The heat is a big topic of conversation. Texans pick their parking places by shade, not distance. They know that a seat belt in July does a pretty good imitation of a branding iron. Droughts, too, are a way of life. Texans long ago stopped associating bridges with water. As folks in the country say, "It's so dry the trees are bribin' the dogs." ,

Just about every quality of Texas life – whether good, bad or indifferent – is on display on this collection. Twenty-five songs telling you a whole lot of what you need to know about Texas and Texans. Here are the things that Texans are proudest of, right along side a few other qualities they may not be quite as proud of, but they sure ain't ashamed enough to stop writing and singing songs about them. ,

You'd think that a collection like this would consist solely of native Texans singing their pride, but that's not the case. Admittedly many of these artists hail from Texas – men like Ernest Tubb, Willie Nelson, and Tex Ritter, but there are plenty of exceptions. And speaking of Mr. Ritter, when a guy adopts the name of a state as his first name, you know you're on to some serious identity issues. And Tex Ritter is just the tip of the iceberg. Think about Tex Williams – who came from Illinois! There just aren't too many guys out there calling themselves 'Illinois Williams' or 'New Jersey Jones' or 'Pennsylvania Smith.' ,

Along with Williams, there are quite a few non-Texans on this collection proudly singing about the joys and perils of life in the Lone Star state. When you have a guy of Scandinavian ancestry like Ole Rasmussen (whose California-based band was named the Nebraska Cornhuskers) or a Canadian from Nova Scotia singing about Texas, you know there's something powerful going on. And Hank Snow isn't the only Canadian on board this train. There's fellow Nova Scotian Wilf Carter as well. And there are lots of out-of-state Americans like Sanford Clark (Oklahoma), Hank Locklin (Florida), Rex Allen (Arizona), and old Roy Rogers, himself, who hailed from Ohio. Nothing stopped these non-Texans from singing the praises of Texas.

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?).
