Various - The Popsters: Vol.3, The Popsters - They Tried To Rock (CD)

1-CD Album Digipak (4-seitig) mit umfangreichem Booklet, 33 Einzeltitel. Gesamtspieldauer 80:40 Minuten.
  • Sowohl Pop-Fans als auch Sammler werden sich über seltene Titel auf freuen.
  • Bei wohlbekannten Stars wie Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee und Doris Day werden Sie sich fragen: wie konnten die sich zu so etwas herablassen?
  • Wir zeigen die Bedeutung von ‘Cover-Versionen’ in jenen Tagen, kurz bevor ‘Singer/Songwriter’ die lieb gewonnene Praxis der Musikindustrie über den Haufen warfen.
  • Das Album enthält Aufnahmen, die dem Wort ‘ahnungslos’ neuen Sinn geben.
  • Liefert Beispiele für die Bemühungen von teils hoffnungslosen Singer/Songwritern, Musikern und Arrangeuren, mit dem, was Rock ‘n’ Roll wirklich ausmacht, klarzukommen.
  • Schließlich liefern wir einige überraschend erfolgreiche Versuche, sich mit Rock ‘n’ Roll zu arrangieren, von Sängern, von denen man das nie und nimmer erwartet hätte.

    Diese beiden Alben ergänzen unsere CD-Veröffentlichungen 'They Tried To Rock: The Hillbillies'– Volumes 1 & 2 (BCD 17350, BCD 17406).
Der dritte und vierte Teil verfolgen jeweils die ersten Versuche von Popsters wie Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, den Mills Brothers, Perry Como und Lawrence Welk, mit den Herausforderungen des Rock ‘n’ Rolls und seiner Wirkung auf herkömmliche Popmusik klarzukommen. All das passierte in der ersten Hälfte der Fünfzigerjahre. Niemand wusste zu diesem Zeitpunkt, ob es sich um eine schnell vergängliche Modeerscheinung oder um eine die populäre Musik revolutionierende Bedrohung handelte.

Viele Popsters hassten diese Entwicklung und machten sich in privater Runde darüber lustig. Gleichzeitig mussten sie feststellen, dass ihre Plattenverkäufe abstürzten, ihre Musik nicht mehr so häufig im Radio gespielt wurde und die Auftrittsmöglichkeiten seltener wurden. Popsters wurden mit derselben Frage nach der Zukunft der Karriere konfrontiert, die zuvor die Hillbillies auf den beiden ersten Ausgaben dieser Serie beschäftigt hatte: bekämpfen oder zu Freunden machen?

Einige Popsters besaßen das Zeug zur erfolgreichen Anpassung; andere schafften es nicht. Bear Family Records hat erstmals einige typische Versuche der Mutation vom Popster zum Rocker auf einem CD-Album zusammengetragen. Viele dieser Aufnahmen von berühmten und weniger berühmten Künstlern sind mittlerweile recht selten. Sie werden sich wundern, wie gut manche waren. Andere werden kaum mehr als ein müdes Lächeln entlocken. Doch ob gut oder schlecht, sie alle erinnern uns daran, welch mächtige Kraft der Rock ‘n’ Roll in den Anfangstagen war und wie selbst gut verdienende Popsters glaubten, sie müssten sich verändern, um nicht unterzugehen.

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.
