Various - Truckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels: Vol.07, The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock 1974-75 (2-CD)

2-CD Digipak (6 pages) with extensive booklet, 43 single tracks. Total playing time 160:29 minutes.

We remain very pleased with the sales and reactions to the first four releases in this series.
The story of Country Rock ends with parts 6 and 7!
The concept remains as it was: big hits and at first ignored later classics tell the whole story of this genre.
Double album and a packed booklet with comments on each song, rare photos and first-hand stories.

The center of the country rock scene shifted from Los Angeles to Austin. In its March 1973 issue, Crawdaddy magazine first featured Austin. Soon everyone else followed suit. In September,'Billboard' Austin dedicated a whole page to Willie Nelson, Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker and Billy Joe Shaver.

The main players, the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, had once been lost. Gram Parsons, however, their common guru, recorded two of the best LPs of that era. Parson's publications are the cornerstones of our last two editions. But we make a detour via Austin to take Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Lost Gonzo Band and Willie Nelson with us. We gathered the best country rock recordings of those days from Nashville, New York, San Francisco and many places right in the middle to tell their story. The story ends with the death of Gram Parsons and describes how Emmylou Harris picks up the pieces to keep the music alive in Nashville. ,

From the mid to late sixties, the music scene in the U.S.A. was extremely polarized. Nobody could imagine that country and rock would enter a peaceful coexistence. ROCK was one cultural extreme, COUNTRY the other. But the wacky subcultural approach of Gram Parsons, the Byrds, the Burritos, Commander Cody, Michael Nesmith and many others finally made the impossible possible. We told this story on seven editions and a total of thirteen CDs. Over a period of ten years, from 1966 to 1975, we followed the history of country rock. Since then the music has branched out widely: Soft Rock, Outlaw Country, Southern Rock, Alt-Country, Americana and much more. But if you follow the tributaries back to the source, you usually end up with the music we documented in this anthology.

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)
