Die glückliche Geburt des Country Rock; Band 5
1972

Neunzehn, siebzig, zweiundsiebzig. In seiner Halbjahresbilanz zur Rockmusik hob das Magazin "Billboard" den Trend zu übertriebenen Sounds hervor, wie Procul Harum mit dem Edmonton Symphony. Ein weiterer Trend war der sogenannte German Noise Rock, also Acts wie Van Der Graaf Generator und Amon Duul. Nat Freedland von Billboard's' sah auch, dass ohne einen mächtigen Superstar wie die Beatles oder Elvis die Rockmusik wie nie zuvor fragmentiert wurde. Dieser Trend hat sich bis heute fortgesetzt. Der Satellitenradioservice Sirius verfügt heute über zweihundert Kanäle, die verschiedene Musikstile und -untergruppen bedienen.

Freeland erkannte einen weiteren Trend. In Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass Country-Rock-Acts wie die Byrds und die Burritos an Boden verlieren, fügte er hinzu: "Es gibt eine neue Wut in San Francisco, die etwa sechs Monate von der nationalen Anerkennung entfernt ist. Und wie wir alle wissen, hat sich San Francisco einen Platz unter den kühnsten Trendstädten der Musik verdient. Seit Anfang des Jahres bieten die Rockclubs der Stadt Neuland-Swing, die Musik, die von Bob Wills und Johnny Bond und nicht von Hank Williams und der Grand Ole Opry kommt. Die Kinder aus San Francisco nehmen tatsächlich das Tanzen im Promenadenstil auf." Freedland hob Commander Cody hervor, dessen erstes Album 1971 in unserem Band prominent vorgestellt wurde, Dan Hicks, der hier vorgestellt wird, und Asleep at the Wheel, dessen Debütalbum 73 erschien. "Bedeutet das, dass der Countryswing den Rockmarkt übernehmen wird?" fragte Freedland. Nicht wirklich, schloss er. "Mehrere andere steigende Trends stehen dem honkie revival Sound diametral entgegen." Er sprach weiter über Funkadelic, Bowie, britische progressive Volksmusik und viele andere kommende Dinge.

Billboard' nahm auch die wachsende Zahl der Rock'n'Roll-Revival-Shows auf. "Einige Erkundungsgesteine sind zu trocken und zerebral", bemerkte der Korrespondent. "Und das hinterlässt eine Leere für raue, direkte Musik." Viele Acts aus den fünfziger Jahren waren immer noch an der Spitze ihres Spiels, aber sie wurden ausgegrenzt. Die meisten begnügten sich damit, ihre nicht so alten Hits für die Menge zu spielen, die sich erinnern wollte, als einige fünfziger Jahre Acts, insbesondere die Everly Brothers und Rick Nelson, sich aktiv im Country Rock neu erfanden, so wie sich Jerry Lee Lewis und Conway Twitty in der Country-Musik neu erfunden hatten. Die Ernüchterung der Everlys und Rick Nelson, als Oldies-Acts in die Schublade gesteckt zu werden, wird hier in zwei Songs festgehalten, Don Everlys I'm Tired Of Singing My Song In Las Vegas und Rick Nelsons letztem großen Hit, Garden Party.

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.

"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)

Großartig kuratiert

Münchener Abendzeitung 1.08.15 "Die brilliante, großartig kuratierte Sampler-Reihe lädt ein, auch obskure Gruppen wie Cowboy oder Morning zu entdecken, von denen vermutlich niemals eine Platte über den Ozean geschippert wurde."
