Video von Sonny Burns - The Devil's Disciple

•    Die Wiederkehr des texanischen Honky-Tonk-Sängers Sonny Burns in den Sechzigerjahren.
•    Überblick über seiner Karriere und großartige Aufnahmen von 1959 bis in die späten Sechziger.
•    Wir stellen seine Aufnahmen für TNT, United Artists und MGM vor.
•    Enthält zuvor unveröffentlichte Aufnahmen.

Sollten Sie etwas über die Implosion der Karriere von Sonny Burns gegen Mitte der Fünfziger gelesen haben, so werden Sie über seine Wiederkehr in den Sechzigerjahren überrascht sein. Als der Honky-Tonk-Sänger aus Osttexas aus dem Blickfeld geriet, begann zeitgleich der kometenhafte Aufstieg seines Freundes, Labelkollegens und gelegentlichen Duett-Partners George Jones.
'Devil’s Disciple' setzt dort an, wo 'Too Hot To Handle’, die erste Bear Family-Zusammenstellung mit seinen Starday-Aufnahmen der Jahre 1953-1956, aufhört und untersucht Sonny Burns Karriere von 1959 bis gegen Ende der 60er Jahre. Die Geschichte von Burns erstem Flirt mit dem Ruhm und seinem teils selbst verschuldeten Fall ist jener Stoff, aus dem Legenden der Country Music entstehen; nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil seine Geschichte so eng mit dem Aufstieg von George Jones verbunden ist, dem am meisten verehrten Countrysänger nach Hank Williams. So wie die Geschichte von Sonny oftmals erzählt wird, kann der Eindruck entstehen, er sei irgendwie schlecht behandelt worden. Als hätte es ebenso gut passieren können, dass er an Stelle von Jones die Ruhmesleiter empor hätte klettern können. Auch wenn es weniger an schlechter Behandlung und vielmehr an schlechtem Timing und Engagement lag, dies ändert nichts an der Tatsache, dass Sonny Burns einer der talentiertesten und bemerkenswertesten Musiker seiner Zeit war. Der von uns hier skizzierte zweite Karriereversuch hinterließ einige großartige Aufnahmen.

Die Geschichte von 'Devil’s Disciple' beginnt 1959, drei Jahre nach der letzten Starday-Session von Burns. Nach eigener Einschätzung hatte Sonny Burns den absoluten Tiefpunkt erreicht. Doch Sonny kämpfte sich mit einer Single für das in San Antonio ansässige unabhängige TNT-Label zurück in die Szene.
Diese Zusammenstellung verfolgt sein Comeback durch die Jahre 1961 bis 1963, in denen er bei United Artists unter Vertrag stand, bis zu seiner letzten Session für MGM im Jahre 1968, die damals nicht veröffentlicht wurde und nun erstmals das Licht der Welt erblickt.
Dabei sind Klassiker wie Blue House Painted White und Burns' Sprachfassung von Johnny Bushs Devil's Disciple, dem Titelsong. Zu den bislang unveröffentlichten MGM-Mastern aus dem Jahre 1968 gehören zwei großartige Fassungen von Songs, die von dem nur schwer fassbaren Country-Songster Jim Fagan aus dem Osten des Staates Tennesse geschrieben wurden, I Sat Down On A Bear Trap und I Left One On The Bar.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Burns, Sonny"

Sonny Burns

Anyone reading about the implosion of Sonny Burns career in the mid-50s -- when the East Texas honky-tonk singer sank from sight while his friend, label mate and sometime duet partner George Jones rocketed to stardom -- might be surprised to find out that there was a 'Second Coming' in the 1960s. The story of Burns' first flirtation with fame, and his at least partly self-induced fall, is the stuff of country music legend because it has been so closely linked with the rise of Jones, the most revered country singer of the post-Hank Williams years. As good as he was, it's arguable that Burns would be regarded today as just another also-ran among many without the intertwining with Jones at that crucial junction. Instead, the Jones connection lends Burns a special aura, making his rise and fall one of the major 'what-if?' sagas of the era.

There is an undercurrent in the way Burns' story is usually told that implies that the singer somehow got a raw deal, that were it not for one fatal mistake it might have been he who shot to stardom and not Jones. Andrew Brown, in his notes to 'A Real Cool Cat'Bear Family's 2011 release documenting all of Burns' early recordings for Starday (1954-56, including many unissued tracks), decisively debunks the myths and romanticism surrounding the singer's failure to make it big, while at the same time giving Burns' his full due as one of the most talented performers of the time and place. It was less a raw deal than a matter of timing and commitment.

'Devil's Disciple,' which documents Burns' second stab at country music stardom in the 1960s, picks up where 'A Real Cool Cat' ends – or rather three years later in 1959, when having, in his own assessment, hit rock bottom, Burns began to claw his way back onto the scene with a single for the San Antonio-based independent label TNT. Following from that record, 'Devil's Disciple' traces Burns' comeback through his 1961-63 recordings for United Artists and his final 1968 session for MGM, which was left unreleased at the time and finally sees the light of day here.

As Andrew Brown writes in his excellent notes to 'A Real Cool Cat,' Sonny Burns was born Clyde Burns, Jr. in Lufkin in deep East Texas on September 19, 1930 and apparently spent his formative years north of Lufkin in Nacogdoches before moving to Houston, part of the larger migration from farm and town into city that played so big a part in the city's golden era of country music in the early post-war years. We know little of his early musical influences beyond the claim by long-time local scene guitarist Harold Sharp that he and the teenaged Burns were buddies and that he taught the latter how to play guitar. In 1950, Burns was playing lead guitar for Eddie Noack and soon after had headed to nearby, wide-open Galveston, where he further honed his skills as a guitarist and also began to sing. By 1952, Burns was leading his own bands in Galveston and the following year caught the ear of Jack and Neva Starns of Beaumont, who'd started their own Starday record label in mid-1953.

Burns was one of the label's earliest signees and he recorded his first single for the Starnses in the summer of 1953. His second release was his version of Noack's Too Hot To Handle. It was a regional hit, big enough to spawn several major label covers. The good looking, charismatic Burns became the Starns' most promising performer. As Brown notes, Pappy Daily, who became one of the key players at Starday not long after Burns' signing, told historian Martin Hawkins that, "Sonny Burns was a fine, fine singer. His recordings sold well, too, consistently. We always had advance orders on them. He outsold George Jones by a mile. In fact, when we had them duet on a couple of discs, it was to help George's career, not Sonny's." Don Pierce, who became Daily's partner in the label after the Starnses bowed out, added, "We really did consider Sonny to be our number one shot."
