Various - Truckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels: Vol.05, The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock 1972 (2-CD)

2-CD Digipak (6-plated) with extensive booklet, 37 tracks. Total playing time approx. 00 minutes.
  • Sales have been strong and critical response has been overwhelming to Volumes 1 through 4.
  • Now the story continues with Volume 5. Just two more to go!
  • The mix is as before: big hits and neglected classics that tell the story of a musical genre.
  • Double CD with generously full booklet with complete song-by-song notes, rare photos, and first-person accounts.
In its assessment of rock music in 1972, 'Billboard' magazine noted the trend toward overblown rock, like Procul Harum with the Edmonton Symphony. Another trend was dubbed Teutonic Noise Rock, meaning Van Der Graaf Generator and Amon Duul. In sharp contrast, Country Rock was a return to elemental values in music. Melodic songs and minimal instrumentation, still performed with a counter-culture vibe.

That's what we have on this double CD. The Byrds were still around and still making great music, and were joined by the New Riders of the Purple Sage and other California acts like Ry Cooder, JD Souther, and Dan Hicks. Now the music was coming from other corners of the United States, including Nashville (J.J. Cale, the Scruggs brothers, Kris Kristofferson), Texas (the Flatlanders, Delbert & Glen), New York (Pure Prairie League, Chip Taylor), and Woodstock/New England (Bobby Charles, Jonathan Edwards). Two '50s rock & roll acts, the Everly Brothers and Rick Nelson, made exciting new music that was very true to 1970s country rock. And finally, a hippie group, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, successfully bridged traditional Country and Country Rock with their groundbreaking Will The Circle Be Unbroken.

This is what fans across the world have come to expect from Bear Family: genre-defining compilations, generously full CDs, in-depth notes, rare photos, and complete discographies. In short, a 360 degree musical experience. So spray some patchouli oil, light up an exotic cigarette (only where it's legal to do so, of course) and venture back to the dawn of the Seventies. From Los Angeles' vertiginous canyons to flat barrens of West Texas to Woodstock. The story is here told as only Bear Family can tell it!

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)
