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 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!

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!
