In 1966, rock groups began turning away from the self-indulgence of early psychedelia to the timeless values embodied in country music, but they brought a counter-culture sensibility to it. It was a trend that began slowly in 1966, picked up steam in ’67 when Bob Dylan released his groundbreaking ‘John Wesley Harding’ album and The Band’s first LP appeared, and became a phenomenon in 1968 when the Byrds released ‘Sweetheart Of The Rodeo,’ and Dillard & Clark’s first album appeared. Heritage acts like the Everly Brothers and Rick Nelson came early to the party. And then, in 1969, the Flying Burrito Brothers’ first LP appeared, Dylan released ‘Nashville Skyline,’ and the Band’s epochal second LP appeared. Suddenly, Country Rock was a phrase on everyone’s lips.

That’s the story we tell in the first two volumes of this series. All the big names are here, but so are the Corvettes (a super group that never made it, produced by Mike Nesmith of the Monkees), Doug Sahm fusing western swing and rock, Clarence White coming to rock from country and bluegrass with his group Nashville West, Hearts & Flowers with future Eagles founder Bernie Leadon, and Gram Parsons’ first group, the International Submarine Band, and many more!

Not only is Bear Family able to license from great and small labels to bring you the complete story of Country Rock, but the story is told as only Bear Family can tell it: pristine sound, previously unpublished photos, full liner notes with first-person accounts from those who were there. The set is produced and annotated by Grammy-award winning writer-producer Colin Escott.

Artist description "Various - Truckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels"

TRUCKERS, KICKERS, COWBOY ANGELS

The Blissed-Out Birth of Country Rock

On January 12, 1970, 'Time' magazine placed The Band on its cover with the headline, 'The New Sound of Country Rock.' In the taxonomy of popular music, Country Rock was now a thing, a categoryby 1970. There were Country Rock browser bins in some stores, and trade magazines like 'Billboard'routinely classified records as country-rock or country/rock, expecting readers to know what they meant.

A category as vague and fissiparous as Country Rock can be defined narrowly or broadly. We've focused on rock musicians who embraced the concision, narrative drive, melodicism, and folk roots of country music, but we've also included a few country artists reaching out the other way. Rock musicians began trekking to Nashville after Bob Dylan began recording in Nashville in 1966, and they come still. Taking their cue from Dylan, a new breed of country songwriters, led by John Hartford, Mickey Newbury, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson, began writing songs that dared to stray from the I-IV-V chord norm. A scene coalesced around them, attracting guys like Donnie Fritts, Billy Joe Shaver, and Tony Joe White. Before long, established country artists like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash began to think about not making records the way Nashville liked to make them. Whether from Nashville, Los Angeles, or someplace else, country rock was enough of a category by 1970 to attract artists who often understood neither country nor rock. We tried to avoid bandwagon jumpers, preferring those who brought an original spin to their music.

Licensing can be a problem with compilations like this. Artists as well-known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Creedence Clearwater Revival were unavailable to us, alongside inexplicable denials like Rig. Some artists like Shiloh were on labels that have fallen into a contractual black hole. So if a recording that seems to belong here is missing, there's probably a clause in an aging contract explaining that. Even so, there's still plenty to love on the road to 1975.

 Colin Escott

 

 

"There was a shared sense of direction that was in tune with the times. The Band, the Byrds, Poco, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Dylan were all exploring traditional music augmented by the power of rock 'n' roll. Psychedelia had had its moment and we were continuing to evolve what we believed to be the logical next step in American music."

(Robert Hunter, lyricist for the Grateful Dead) 

"The winds that were blowing moved us all along. We each had different approaches - different tacks and different sails in the wind - but we mostly headed the same direction, just because of the push. I had no notion of country rock as a possible genre, although we used the phrase among ourselves as First National Band members. This was more to frame up and focus a feeling of playing. We weren't conscious of this being innovative. It was fun to play like that, and there was plenty to say with it, and we enjoyed listening to it, to each other. I listened to all the bands at some point, but not until some time after the form was well under way. We were all immersed in playing it and giving it voice; we only slowly discovered each other over time. Ideas come along like this regularly that push everyone along. No one controls it; no one leads it. Certainly, no one invents it. It is the moment when the songs start to sing the singers, and not the other way round. Everyone who plays and sings knows this when it happens, and it is the most fun you can have playing music. Like flying in your dreams, effortlessly - and especially fun if you find someone up there with you. You wave and smile and acknowledge the forces at work."

(Michael Nesmith)

Various Artist
Truckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels - The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock 1966-68, Vol. 1 + 1969, Vol. 2

TRUCKERS, KICKERS, COWBOY ANGELS - THE BLISSED-OUT BIRTH OF COUNTRY ROCK 1 & 2 1966 begannen Rockgruppen sich von der frühem Psychedelic Rock innewohnenden Genusssucht weg hin zu den durch die Country Music verkörperten zeitlosen Werten zu orientieren. Wobei sie allerdings das Empfindungsvermögen der Gegenkultur einbrachten. Der Country Rock -eine der wohl wichtigsten musikalischen Entwicklungen der Rockgeschichte- wurde geboren. Und eben diesem Phänomen widmet sich eine neue Serie von Bear Family Records. Auf den ersten beiden Ausgaben sind alle großen Namen wie etwa die Byrds, die Flying Burrito Brothers, Bob Dylan, Buffalo Springfield, The Band, Linda Ronstadt, Doug Sahm oder Lovin' Spoonful dabei. Genauso aber auch die Corvettes (eine von Mike Nesmith von den Monkees produzierte, erfolglos gebliebene Supergroup), Doug Sahm mit seiner Fusion von Western Swing und Rock, Clarence White, der mit der Band Nashville West von Country und Bluegrass zum Rock kam, Hearts And Flowers mit dem späteren Eagles-Gründer Bernie Leadon und die erste Gruppe von Gram Parsons, die International Submarine Band, um nur einige zu nennen. Eine Sammlung echter Juwelen für Country-Rock-Fans und alle, die es werden wollen!
