TRUCKERS, KICKERS, COWBOY ANGELS
The Blissed-Out Birth of Country Rock, 1973, Volume 6

The leading edge, certainly the funkier edge, of the country rock scene was shifting from Los Angeles to Austin. In March 1973, in what was probably the first national attention paid to Austin as a music venue, Crawdaddy's Jeff Nightbyrd wrote, "Austin musicians and audiences value music as a form of expression, not as a commodity. In New York you spend two-fifty to get into a joint where it doesn't take very long to figure out they're using music to sell alcohol. In Austin you pay a buck to get in and get off." In September, 'Billboard' devoted one full page to Austin, calling out Willie Nelson as the godfather, followed by Michael Murphey (whose albums are frustratingly unavailable to us), Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joe Shaver, and local legend Henry Threadgill. Willie moved to Austin in January 1973, and the scene coalesced around him.

On July 4, he held his first annual picnic in nearby Dripping Springs, headlined by Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Doug Sahm, Tom T. Hall, Billy Joe Shaver, and - bizarrely - Charlie Rich. Somewhere between 38,000 and 40,000 people showed up in temperatures that neared 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Journalist Billy Porterfield was there: "It was miserable and it was great, one of the glorious heathen stomps between the Americas of J. Edgar Hoover, Joe McCarthy and Ronald Reagan. Many had come the evening before and spent the night passing stories and hits around campfires."



Between 1970 and '80, the Armadillo World Headquarters sat at the heart of Austin's music community. At one point, its annual beer consumption was exceeded in Texas only by the Houston Astrodome. But the Soap Creek Saloon, founded in 1973, was Austin's soul. So wrote 'Austin Chronicle' journalist Margaret Moser, and so it was. A dilapidated dive on an equally rundown section of Bee Caves Road, Soap Creek (known locally as Dope Freak) was where Doug Sahm reintroduced the world to Freddy Fender after Freddy had spent years laying low. Sahm led the de facto house band throughout the early 1970s, and lived in a rented house down the road.

The next best thing to being there is to look at the poster art from the period. Unlike the trippier west coast posters, the Soap Creek calendars were one color with their own homegrown cosmic cowboy aesthetic: armadillos and western motifs through a distorting mirror. Atlantic Records tried to tap into the scene, supposedly recording Willie Nelson's first picnic, signing Willie and Doug Sahm and trying to sign several other local acts, like Freda and the Firedogs. Sales didn't meet the expectations of Atlantic's new corporate parent. You know how that goes.

As on earlier volumes, we're reminding you once again of the vagaries of licensing a compilation like this. Some artists in addition to Michael Martin Murphey remain unavailable to us.

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.

"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)
