Benny Barnes: Poor Man's Riches, Complete 1950s Recordings

1-CD mit 48-seitigem Booklet, 33 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer 76:38 Minuten. 

Alle 1950er-Aufnahmen dieses unterschätzten Künstlers aus Texas Mit allen EPs für das Dixie-Label Enthält seinen Tribute-Song für Buddy Holly , Ritchie Valens und The Big Bopper , Gold Records In The Snow Mit Benny Barnes' Version von Beggar To A King , die Hank Snow 1961 zu seiner Hit-Fassung inspirierte Auch dabei: der Rockabilly-Klassiker You Gotta Pay 'Ich hielt Benny Barnes immer für einen prima Sänger. Er war ein großer Künstler mit einer guten Bühnenshow. Ich habe nie verstanden, warum er keine bedeutenderen Erfolge hatte.' Produzent H.W. 'Pappy' Daily über Benny Barnes Bereits mit seiner zweiten Platte, 'Poor Man's Riches', gelang dem Country-Sänger Benny Barnes aus East Texas 1956 ein Riesen-Hit für das legendäre Starday-Label. Das bedeutete für ihn den wichtigen Schritt aus den Bierpinten seiner Heimatstadt Beaumont (wo er häufig mit George Jones aufgetreten ist) ins nationale Rampenlicht der Louisiana Hayride. Er war ein freundlicher, jungenhafter Typ mit einer überzeugenden Bühnenpräsenz – und sein unverwechselbarer Gesangsstil verband Einflüsse von George Jones bzw. Lefty Frizzell mit denen seines Idols aus frühen Jahren, Hank Snow . Er ignorierte damals aktuelle Trends und Prophezeiungen seitens der Musikindustrie, stattdessen gelangen ihm Erfolge mit harter Country Music – zu einer Zeit als der Rock 'n' Roll alles wegzufegen drohte, was sich ihm in den Weg stellte. 

Für Schallplattenkünstler war noch nie etwas sicher: Diese bittere Erfahrung machte auch Benny Barnes , dem selbst die Unterstützung eines bedeutenden Labels wie Mercury nicht dabei half, einen Folgesong für seinen Hit Poor Man's Riches zu finden. Zwar veröffentlichte er während der nächsten 25 Jahre sehr viele weitere Singles – doch als er 1987 starb, hatte ihn das Country Music Business komplett vergessen. In dieser lange überfälligen Retrospektive faßt Bear Family Benny Barnes' komplette Aufnahmen aus den 50er Jahren zusammen – viele davon sind erstmals von den Original-Masterbändern überspielt, zwei sind weltweite Erstveröffentlichungen. Es waren vier fruchtbare Jahre für Benny Barnes : Sie begannen mit ein paar frühen akustischen Demos, setzten sich fort mit Singles für Starday, Mercury, Dixie, Faith und D, bis er am Ende des Jahrzehnts wieder bei Mercury landete. Auch wenn während dieser Zeit einiges falsch gelaufen ist – unbestreitbar bleibt, daß Benny Barnes ' Talent eine größere Resonanz verdient hatte. Und das gilt auch heute noch. Diese CD enthält eine neu recherchierte Benny Barnes-Biographie von Andrew Brown sowie seltene Fotos und eine Discographie.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Barnes, Benny"

Benny Barnes

Poor Man's Riches

 

"I thought Benny was a fine singer. He was a great artist with a fine stage act. I never could understand why he didn't make it big."

                                                   - H.W. 'Pappy' Daily on Benny Barnes

Improbable as it may appear from this distance, there was a brief moment when East Texas country singer Benny Barnes seemed poised to become the next George Jones – with the help and enthusiastic approval of Jones himself, no less. Just shy of his 21st birthday, Barnes had scored a huge hit in 1956 with only his second record, Poor Man's Riches, and would quickly graduate from the beer joints of his native Beaumont to the national spotlight of the Louisiana Hayride. He was boyishly handsome, had convincing stage presence, and an instantly recognizable vocal style that melded influences like Jones and Lefty Frizzell with that of his early idol, Hank Snow. He had defied current trends and record industry wisdom by hitting with a hard country performance at a time when rock 'n' roll had threatened to consume everything in its path.

George Jones had used his clout to get Barnes signed to his label, the fledgling Starday Records, gave him two of his original songs to record for his debut release (a gift Jones only rarely extended to other artists), and generally treated the younger singer as an equal. They both lived in Beaumont, played the same clubs, recorded with the same studio musicians, and had the same producer – Texas music legend H.W. 'Pappy' Daily.

But there are no sure bets in the record business, as Barnes would bitterly learn when neither these advantages nor the patronage of a major label, Mercury, would help him find a follow-up hit to Poor Man's Riches. The record buying public had spoken, and as the new decade dawned, it was clear that there would be only one George Jones. Those in Jones's orbit -- Barnes, James O'Gwynn, Eddie Noack, Country Johnny Mathis, Sonny Burns, Johnny Nelms, and Glenn Barber, to name just a few -- were destined to dwell a far distance behind his success, attaining local and regional fame, and the occasional hit record or song, but nothing more. It seemed as if the music industry could only find room for one East Texas country singer, and Jones, with his remarkable voice, and hellraising ways, had captured the essence of his time and place so well, so definitively, that there was hardly any need for further elaboration from others. And so it goes. While Barnes would release many more singles over the next 25 years, by the time of his death in 1987, he was essentially forgotten by the country music business.

In this overdue retrospective, Bear Family gathers together Benny Barnes' complete 1950s recordings, most reissued from the original master tapes for the first time, including two previously unissued performances. It was prolific four years for Barnes, commencing with a couple of early acoustic demos, and continuing through his singles for Starday, Mercury, Dixie, Faith, D, and finally back to Mercury at the close of the decade. Though there were a few definite missteps during this period, it's equally undeniable that Barnes's talent deserved wider recognition than it received – then and now.

 

A Passing Fad: The Early Years

The eldest of five children, Benjamin Milam Barnes, Jr. was born January 1, 1936, in Beaumont. The family home was located just west of the city, in the tiny town of Amelia, very close to the Spindletop oil field. Spindletop had ensured Texas's future as an oil capitol when it erupted in 1901; it was still generating barrels during Benny's childhood years. Oil touched everyone's lives in the area. Benny's father was an oil field mechanic, and it was assumed that the boy would follow his dad into the grueling, but stable oil business.

Randy Barnes, who would later sing and tour with his older brother, remembers that Benny "started playing around Beaumont during high school, or just out of high school. He would sit on a curb downtown, and play his guitar and sing. Benny was four years older than me. We had a younger brother, Jim. He and Benny and I used to get together when we were younger, and played around some of the local clubs in Beaumont. Jim had a washtub and a broomstick that he made a bass out of, I played drums, and Benny was guitar, singer, and so forth. We had a ball together -- singing and playing since we were real little."

"At the age of about ten," Benny would explain years later, "I would bring a little plastic ukelele to school to bang and sing on, entertaining my schoolmates at recess. At that time, I sang popular and semi-classical music. Then, at the age of twelve, my taste for music suddenly changed to hillbilly. So my folks, thinking it was a passing fad, bought me a very cheap guitar for Christmas." His parents soon realized how wrongly they had estimated their son's musical interests. "I eventually learned to play just about anything. I was invited to play for school and church programs, as well as civic clubs... I did so until I was about 15."
