Tennessee Ernie FordPortrait Of An American Singer 1949 to 1960 (5CD set) ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 5CDs & Book ... $129.99 176.98
The first collection to ever do justice to one of our favorite singers of all time – the legendary Tennessee Ernie Ford, an artist so great he was practically a genre unto himself! Ford's music of this era is beyond compare – rooted in early country and hillbilly styles, but also open to some strong influences from R&B at times too – especially in his more romping numbers, which are always a treat. And Ernie also had a way of putting over a historical theme with a nice sense of wit – that kind of wry style and wink of the eye that Lee Hazlewood later took up more strongly – but which makes even the more straightforward songs here still sound completely delightful. Production is wonderful, too – not soppy pop country, but cool Capitol Records in the 50s – with this nice kick that really sounds great, and which sets fire to the often-playful arrangements from Jack Fascinato. And as with all recent Bear Family set, the production values knock the whole thing out of the park – with this heavy 12" square hardcover book – 124 pages, and filled with vintage images, album scans, record labels, and even lots of notes on the music. 154 tracks on 5CDs – including duets with Kay Starr, Cliffie Stone, Mollie Bee, and others.

✨✧ Elmer Bernstein/Nathan Van CleaveHud/Lonely Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Paramount/Kritzerland, 1957/1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of obscure soundtracks, both with a western theme – fitting together surprisingly well on a single CD! Hud is one of Paul Newman's finest early moments on screen – scored beautifully here by Elmer Bernstein, who shows a surprisingly deft ear for guitar lines – spun out in ways that are almost more folksy than the usual soundtrack of this type, and a real change from some of the jazzier, more dramatic Bernstein work of the late 50s. The CD features both film tracks that are mostly guitar, and alternates for a chamber orchestra – plus a few bonus tracks by other artists too. Titles include "Flower Bed", "Quarantine Sign", "Lonely Corrals", "Bonaparte's Retreat", and "Prelude". Next is Nathan Van Cleve's score for The Lonely Man – an obscure Anthony Perkins western, with a sweet title track sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford! The instrumental numbers carry the spirit of the theme nicely – a warm, slightly romanticized Hollywood version of the west – often using acoustic guitar and harmonica alongside more conventional orchestrations. Titles include "Losing The Stallion", "The Trek", "The Prodigal Father", "The Deserted Bonanza", and "Death At The Bonanza". CD
(Limited to 1000 copies.)
