Various - Western: How The West Was Won (CD)

1-CD with 4-plated Digipak an 40-page booklet. 34 tracks, playing time approx. 84 mns.

One of the greatest stories ever told: the opening up of the American west in the words and songs of the pioneers. Some of the greatest pop and folk singers of our time lend their talents to some of the greatest story songs of all time! The original double LP is one of the rarest LPs ever made, produced 1960 in conjunction between RCA and 'Life' magazine. Now reissued complete in premium restored 'Living Stereo' sound!

This is the sort of grand project in which Bear Family excels. It's stories and songs that recount the opening up of the American west. It's the pioneers who staked their lives on a dream. The songs are sung by some of the greatest pop singers of our time, including Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney, and some of the greatest folk singers of our time, including Sam Hinton and Jimmie Driftwood. The original double LP was inspired by the stories that appeared in 'Life' magazine, and those same stories were later adapted into the famous 1962 movie epic, directed by John Ford and starring Henry Fonda, John Wayne, Gregory Peck, and many others.

As always at Bear Family, it's RARE and WELL-DONE at the same time!

Western CD-Album-Series with Country and Western CDs

These collections give you an overview of songs that were memorable elements of post-War westerns in cinemas and on TV. Along with established ‘veterans’ of the genre like Johnny Horton, Roy Rogers and Johnny Cash there are unexpected singing (with more or less success…) cowboys like James Stewart, Kirk Douglas or the ‘Bonanza’ cast.

The booklets, brimming with period art from posters and lobby cards, are the perfect visual companion to the music. Popcorn not included.

JOHN WAYNE’S WEST - IN MUSIC AND POSTER ART In Music & Poster Art 10-CDs/1-DVD Box & Book

A man and an actor as big as JOHN WAYNE deserves a tribute like this! John Wayne was America. And America – in fact, the entire world – has not forgotten John Wayne. Thirty years after his death, the man known as 'Duke' still ranks among the Top Three most popular American film stars of all time.

More than any other actor, he chose roles that glorified traditional American values and would not compromise his personal image. "Don't apologize," he said in 'She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,' "it's a sign of weakness." That was John Wayne, and that's the John Wayne celebrated here in the music and poster art from his many memorable western movies.

Apart from 10 CDs of movie songs and original soundtracks and a DVD with movie trailers this set includes a fabulous 464-page full-colour hardcover book with a biography by Richard W. Bann plus movie posters, lobby cards, stills and other memorabilia from every western movie John Wayne appeared in (incl. many rare posters from around the world). Plus a complete filmography and a selection of famous quotes from The Duke

Très bien !

J'avais un LP dans les années 60 qui contenait la plupart des titres de ce CD. En revanche je n'ai pas retrouvé certains titres. Quoi qu'il en soit, je suis entièrement satisfait de cet achat.

Nur für Crosby / Clooney-Sammler

Nun ja. Dies ist aus meiner persönlichen Sicht doch eine sehr uneinheitliche Sache. Es fängt durchaus interessant und stark an ... Bing fällt in einen Erzählermodus (Look back - oh, that was long ago ....) und es folgen sehr alte Volkslieder wie Bound for the Promised Land, En roulant ma boule roulant oder das schöne Neumexikanische Lupita Divina .... Doch dann der jähe Bruch. Der Erzählton entfällt. Es folgt jetzt eine Reihe Lieder, die immer weniger folksliedhaft scheinen. Auch wird die Interpretation zeitweise immer moderner und schräger ... bis zu völlig ummelodiösen und teilweise schrecklich falsch klingenden Versionen bekannter Songs. Der gesetzte Zeitrahmen ist auch nur bedingt nachvollziehbar. Der Unabhängigkeitskrieg wird dezent übergangen, der Bürgerkrieg von 1861-65 gleich auch. Dafür singen am Ende die Mormonen ... wenn man eigentlich den Übergang vom 19. ins 20. Jahrhundert erwarten würde.
Kommt dazu das gut gemeinte Begleitheftchen, welches dann auch noch mit einem Photo von Billy the Kid brilliert ...nur, daß der abgebildete Knabe gar nicht the Kid ist! Empfehlung? Hm - nur für ernsthafte Fans von Crosby oder Clooney, die ihre Sammlung damit komplettieren möchten.
Es gab vor langer Zeit (1974?) mal eine für die BBC (Radio) gemachte Serie "How the West was Sung" (Erzähler: Geo. Hamilton IV), die das Thema sehr viel schöner und ordentlicher aufarbeitete. Man sollte diese Serie nochmal auf CD veröffentlichen. Ich würde sie sofort kaufen!
