Various - History: Politically Incorrect

1-CD Digipak with comprehensive booklet, 31 tracks. Total playing time approx. 82 mns.

  • Clean-cut Pat Boone and folkie campus favorites The Kingston Trio make fun of Mexicans in Speedy Gonzales and Coplas
  • Arthur Godfrey, the king of daytime radio and TV in the early ‘50s, was also the King of Mean Music: check out his Too Fat Polka and Slap ‘er Down Agin, Pa
  • World War 2 mega-stars The Andrews Sisters present a travel brochure for Trinidad featuring mother-and-daughter prostitution in Rum and Coca Cola
  • In Get Out Of The Car, Sammy Davis, Jr. parks his car overlooking the city lights and tells his girlfriend she’d better put out or she can get out and walk home!
  • John Lennon regretted writing only one song in his life: the menacing jealous rant, Run For Your Life, which declares infidelity a capital offense
  • Ella Mae Morse not only tolerates beatings from her boyfriend, but brags about them in How Can You Leave A Man Like This?
  • In Girl Fifteen, Floyd Dixon makes it clear he likes ‘em young – very young – a preference he shares with Fats Domino in Little School Girl
  • Both Jimmy Reed and Ella Johnson find violence a necessary part of domestic life in their versions of Upside Your Head
You think the ‘50s were mild-mannered and bland? Think again after you’ve listened to these 31 tracks drawn from the two decades following World War 2. Today you could lose your job or worse for uttering some of these politically incorrect sentiments. Back then? Let’s just say it was a different world fifty or sixty years ago.

As the 31 tracks on this collection show, you could sing with cheerful abandon about topics like pedophilia and domestic violence, you could show open disdain for overweight people, ridicule immigrants who spoke English with a 'foreign' accent, and devalue women for just about anything you pleased.

You’ll marvel at what was considered OK in mainstream popular music. Unlike some extreme pop music today, these 31 songs were not meant to upset the audience. What passed for popular entertainment then could be pretty shocking by today’s standards.

Moralisch grenzwertig, aber es bleibt Musikgeschichte

Essential purchase

Blues & Rhythm 3/16 "For those of you who collect thematic compilation CDs, this may be an essential purchase.The CD packaging is once again a tribute to Bear's superior standards, and with over 80 minutes of music there is much that other record companies could learn about CD production from the people at Bear Family."

15 Dec 2015

Vergnüglich und aufschlussreich

Concerto, 12/15-1/16 "Eine vergnügliche und nicht zuletzt dank gewohnt kenntnisreicher Liner Notes recht aufschlussreiche Angelegenheit."
