Video von Various - The Hillbillies - Vol.2, The Hillbillies - They Tried To Rock (CD)

1-CD Digipak (4-plated) with 72-page booklet, 31 tracks. Total playing time approx. 71 minutes.

Try to imagine it. You're an established country musician. You've got a career. You're writing songs, recording songs, selling records. Everything is just humming along and then all of a sudden  – there's this whole new style. You don't particularly like it. But people are starting to ask for it at your appearances. It's cutting into your record sales. What are you going to do?

You listen to it. You're starting to get pressure from your record label – maybe it's worth trying just for the hell of it. You're a little older than most of the kids who are doing this stuff, but so what? If you have a receding hairline nobody's gonna see it over the radio.

These crazy rock 'n' roll records are selling in the millions. That's a lot of money and a whole new audience. You don't want to miss out on that. You don't want this train to go by without you getting on board. You can always get off again if you don't like it.

Or try to imagine this. You're a young country musician and you hear some new sounds, perhaps on the radio, that grab your attention. They're exciting – maybe you can find some like-minded musicians out there and work some of these new sounds into your own style.

On two volumes of 'They Tried To Rock' you will hear music with these and other stories behind it. We have collected a variety of examples of country musicians making the transition into rock 'n' roll. Some were very successful; others were less so. The results are all fascinating: the story of a genre struggling to hold its own against enormous forces of change in the 1950s. Traditional American music battling against stylistic and economic pressures that threatened to engulf it. Country musicians wondered, "Do we fight it or join it?" They did both as the new music began to spread. Here's some of what happened.

Artist description "Various - They Tried To Rock"

They Tried To Rock

Part 1 & 2 - The Hillbillies

THEY TRIED TO ROCK Try to imagine it. You're an established country musician. You've got a career. You're writing songs, recording songs, selling re- cords. Everything is just humming along and then all of a sudden – there's this whole new style. You don't particularly like it. But people are starting to ask for it at your appearances. It's cutting into your record sales. What are you going to do? You listen to it. You're starting to get pressure from your record label – maybe it's worth trying just for the hell of it. You're a little older than most of the kids who are doing this stuff, but so what? If you have a receding hairline nobody's gonna see it over the radio. These crazy rock 'n' roll records are selling in the millions. That's a lot of money and a whole new audience. You don't want to miss out on that. You don't want this train to go by without you getting on board. You can always get off again if you don't like it.

Or try to imagine this. You're a young country musician and you hear some new sounds, perhaps on the radio, that grab your attention. They're exciting – maybe you can find some like-minded musicians out there and work some of these new sounds into your own style. On two volumes of 'They Tried To Rock' you will hear music with these and other stories behind it. We have collected a variety of examples of country musicians making the transition into rock 'n' roll. Some were very successful; others were less so. The re- sults are all fascinating: the story of a genre struggling to hold its own against enormous forces of change in the 1950s. Tradi- tional American music battling against stylistic and economic pressures that threatened to engulf it. Country musicians wondered, "Do we fight it or join it?" They did both as the new music began to spread. Here's some of what happened.

 

Part 3 & 4 - The Popsters

Volumes 3 and 4 follow the early struggle by Popsters, including Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, the Mills Brothers, Perry Como and Law- rence Welk, who tried to come to terms with rock 'n' roll's challenge to traditional pop music. This took place during the early to mid-1950s, before anybody knew whether it was just a fad that would blow over or something that truly threatened to re- volutionize popular music.

Many Popsters hated it and privately made fun of it, while at the same time they saw their record sales plummet and their radio play and personal appearances affected. Popsters were faced with the same career-altering choice that affected the Hill- billies in Volumes 1 and 2: Do we fight 'em or join 'em?

Some Popsters were equipped to adapt and did a fine job of it. Others, weren't and didn't. For the first time, BEAR FAMILY has col- lected some vintage performances by Popsters who tried their best to pass themselves off as rockers. Many of these tracks – by both the famous and the not-so-famous – have become quite rare. You'll marvel at how good some of them were. Others may draw a well-deserved snicker after all these years. But good or bad, they all remind us just how potent a force rock & roll was in the early days, and how even well-established Popsters believed they had to change to survive.

They didn't try - they ROCKED!

A brilliant compilation to hear but the album title 'They Tried To Rock' in my personal opinion is definitely partly nonsense as many of these artists jumped more than once on the Rock & Roll train during their career and recorded many 'Rockers' like Hank Thompson, Little Jimmy Dickens or Marvin Rainwater did only to name a few .... Alvis Wayne never did something different than Rockabilly music, Bill Haley 'the father of Rock & Roll' tried to Rock?? Well, somebody should have done his homeworks more carefully I guess ... If Pat Boone, George Hamilton IV or Don Gibson would've been named I'd understand it ... not to say that they were bad at all ... But besides that all tracks are great to hear and the quantity was recorded for majors like Decca, RCA, Columbia and MGM! You should get volume one as well ....
