Bob Wills: San Antonio Rose (11-CD & 1-DVD mit 186-seitigem gebundendem Buch)

11-CD/1 DVD box (LP-size) with 186-page hardcover book, 296 tracks. Playing time approx. 812 mns.

Beyond influential. Beyond seminal. That's Bob Wills' Columbia recordings, complete for the first time. In the quarter-century since his death, Bob Wills has become recognized for the innovative way he synthesized many American musical genres into an adventurous style that he called 'Texas Fiddle Music' and the world called 'Western Swing.' It's a measure of his influence that he is a member of both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

Here is the music that turned the world on its ear: the first fifteen years (1932-1947) of Bob Wills' recording career. This momentous body of music has never been available in its totality, and has never been packaged with the care and attention to detail it merits, nor has the music been as carefully restored as it is here.

This epochal anthology begins with Bob Wills' 1932 Victor recordings with Milton Brown as the Fort Worth Doughboys, then includes the complete Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys' 1935-1947 sessions for ARC and Columbia. Tommy Duncan is the featured vocalist on the majority of these recordings. This anthology includes the original versions of songs that have become American music classics, such as
San Antonio Rose, New San Antonio Rose, Spanish Two Step, Maiden's Prayer, Steel Guitar Rag, Take Me Back To Tulsa, Roly Poly, Stay A Little Longer, Hang Your Head In Shame, Right Or Wrong,
Trouble In Mind, Home In San Antone and Miss Molly. A fresh search of the vaults has also yielded rare alternate takes, unreleased (and previously unknown) material, studio chatter and a few rare mid-'40s radio airshots. In addition, all the recordings have been carefully remastered for optimum sound quality, vastly better than any previous anthology. Depth, presence and subtleties rarely heard on the original 78s and subsequent reissues are heard here. This is how Wills and the Playboys sounded onstage: daring, witty, moving and charismatic.

This 11-CD/1-DVD box, which features the movie 'Take Me Back To Oklahoma' (NTSC format) includes a book with a biography and musical analysis by Rich Kienzle, based on unpublished interviews with various Playboys. It also includes Bob Pinson's revised discography, an introduction from 'Asleep at the Wheel' founder Ray Benson, as well as rare photos and Wills memorabilia from the archives of collector Glenn P. White.

Artist description "Wills, Bob"

Geb. 6. 3. 1905 im Limestone County - Texas
Gest. 13.5. 1975 in Fort Worth - Texas

When Kris Kristofferson wrote of a "walking contradiction," he wasn't thinking of Bob Wills, but the term certainly applies. Wills represented the passions, ambiguities, and iconoclasm of not only Texas, but of Depression-era America. He was poverty and wealth, America's past, present and future all rolled into one cigar-smoking, white-Stetsoned, barrel-chested dynamo.

A virtuoso breakdown fiddler, he moved like Cab Calloway onstage. He sang the classic blues of Bessie Smith but also emulated Gene Austin's pop crooning. A musician raised in rural poverty, his cowboy boots walked right over Grand Ole Opry tradition. He could cut up on double-entendre tunes, get drunk and miss a week of dances, fight and raise hell, divorce five times and still comfortably sing hymns every Wednesday on the radio.

The fiddle tunes his dad and grandfather taught him 'between the rivers' in rural Texas remained his essence. Nonetheless, in Tulsa he built his Texas Playboys into such a sophisticated unit a New York jazz magazine sent a writer to do a story. Les Paul came to Tulsa to hear them. Wills was one of the first musicians to endorse Fender guitars and praised early rock 'n' roll as an extension of what he'd been doing from the start.

The Bob Wills sound was an amalgam that so long as it felt right, was fine by him. A master musical recycler, many of his best known songs were old fiddle tunes he'd lyricized and revamped. He drew other  songs from the 20th Century's first four decades, simplifying, editing and, working from the gut, making each one his own. Even if the songs came from others, they always came out his way.

While his impact on country music was enormous, he had little use for Nashville and rarely toured east of the Mississippi. Like Waylon and Willie, Wills had his reasons for blowing off Nashville. Nashville, however, had no choice but to listen to him. His beat became the pulse of Honky Tonk. His influence on musicians was even greater. In the 1940s and 1950s, Nashville fiddlers, steel and lead guitarists who set the trends took inspiration from their Playboy counterparts.

Working from the gut, he was fearless, creating a musical blend that was a microcosm of America--a culture constructed from that of others that crossed centuries and transcended ethnic boundaries. There was truly something for everyone.

Given all this, it's perfectly obvious why Bob Wills holds dual membership in both the Country Music and that Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

 

The baby--John and Emma Wills's first--came at one minute before midnight, March 6, 1905 at the Wills family's small log farmhouse near the hamlet of Kosse, 65 miles south of Dallas in Limestone County, Texas.

Married a little over a year, John Tompkins and Emmaline Foley Wills were tenant farmers, a union of two families renowned for their fiddling. They would name the new arrival James Robert Wills, in honor of a great-uncle. To the family, he'd always be 'Jim Rob,' the first of ten children: four sons, six daughters.

John Wills had descended from learned ancestors. His grandfather, a Tennessee physician named Saladin Wills, had lived in Tennessee (where the family first settled) and moved to Texas in 1845 with three brothers who all became doctors. Saladin Wills's sons, Tom, James Robert and John were all first-rate fiddlers, as was Tom Wills's son John. So were Emma's four brothers. It's said that John Wills proclaimed within minutes of his son's birth that baby Jim Rob would be a fiddler, that Tom Wills, noting the infant's long fingers, commented "He'll make a better fiddler than you, Johnny."

Jim Rob gave his parents many anxious moments. The first came not long after his birth when he went through a period of sickliness. John and Emma had dealt with that while concentrating on their cotton crop. They endured an isolated rural life and in many ways weren't much better off than the poor black tenant farmers nearby. For the white families, house parties featuring fiddle music were one respite from that hardscrabble life. Since so many of his relatives fiddled, the music was burned into his brain. Jim Rob became accustomed to hearing John and Tom Wills play rags, breakdowns and waltzes, along with mournful original ballads like Faded Love and Lily Dale.
