Uncle Dave Macon: Keep My Skillet... (9CD & 1DVD mit 176-seitigem gebundenem Buch in LP-Grösse)

9-CD Box/1DVD (LP-Format) mit 176-seitigem gebundenem Buch, 248 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 686 Minuten.

Wenn Jimmie Rodgers der Vater der Country Music ist, dann ist Uncle Dave Macon mit Sicherheit ihr Großvater. Er transportierte Dutzende alter Folk-, Vaudeville-, Blues-, Gospel- und Comedy-Songs ins 20. Jahrhundert. Als einer der ersten Country-Stars nahm er Schallplatten auf, war der erste Star der Grand Ole Opry und einer der ersten Musiker, die in die Country Music Hall of Fame gewählt wurden. Aber vor allem ist er ein begnadeter Entertainer gewesen, und er gehört zu den interessantesten-Banjo Spielern in der Geschichte der Country Music.

Erstmals werden hier Uncle Dave Macons sämtliche kommerziellen Einspielungen veröffentlicht, dazu seltene Aufnahmen, die zu Hause entstanden und eine komplette CD mit Live-Aufnahmen aus der Opry von 1939/1940, die nie zuvor erhältlich gewesen sind. Der Klang dieser 248 zeitlosen Klassiker wurde digital überarbeitet, ohne ihre Klangtreue zu beeinträchtigen oder zu verfälschen. Das Mastering besorgte Grammy-Gewinner Chris King, die Endbearbeitung übernahm Jürgen Crasser.

Die DVD (NTSC) präsentiert den Film 'Grand Ole Opry' von 1940, selbstverständlich mit Macon. Das Buch enthält neu entdeckte Fotos und Illustrationen, vollständige Songtexte (übertragen von Paul Ritscher und Robert Nobley), eine aktuell recherchierte Biographie von Charles Wolfe sowie eine überarbeitete Discografie von Ralph Rinzler, Norm Cohen und Tony Russell.

‚Leute – wenn ihr nicht in Ordnung seid, dann bringt euch in Ordnung. Und lasst euch von eurem Bewusstsein lenken, weil ich für unterschiedlichem Geschmack und ungeahnter Qualität spielen werde.‘
- Uncle Dave Macon.

‚Uncle Dave Macon war der ungewöhnlichste, einzigartigste Typ, dem ich je begegnet bin. Was er auch machte, trug seine ureigene Handschrift. Als ich begann, war er schon der größte Star der Grand Ole Opry; und wenn wir auf Tournee gewesen sind, war es Uncle Dave, der das Publikum auch für Roy Acuff angezogen hat.‘ - Roy Acuff.

‚Uncle Dave war möglicherweise unser erster Rock-Star. Er brachte reichlich gute Musik unters Volk, und er hat für uns die Mauern eingerissen, damit wir Country-Musiker werden konnten. - Marty Stuart.

‚Er war vielleicht nicht der beste Banjo-Spieler oder Sänger, aber – verdammt noch mal – er war einfach der beste Wasauchimmer!‘ - Curly Fox.

‚Leute, und hier kommt er nun: Uncle Dave Macon, der Dixie Dewdrop, mit seinem Hut, dem Kinnbart und dem goldenen Tennessee-Lachen. Lass knacken, Uncle Dave!‘ - George Hay, Gründer der Grand Ole Opry’.

‘Long Live Uncle Dave’ - Pete Seeger, April 2004.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Macon, Uncle Dave"

Uncle Dave Macon  

Keep My Skillet Good And Greasy

There was in those days a big old two-story frame house out on the Woodbury Pike near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, in the dusty little community called Kittrell. What locals called the Woodbury Pike was actually Highway 70A, one of the major routes crossing the state to the eastern mountains and Knoxville. Truck drivers, vacationers, bus passengers all looked at the house with curiosity, but many of them recognized the name on the house. Certainly the locals who lived nearby knew – it was hard not to. Across the top of the long front porch was a sign that said 'Uncle Dave Macon,' and to the right was a big wooden picture of a genial older man holding a banjo and grinning a big gold-tooth smile. "I want people to be able to find me in case they want me to come and play for them,"  the owner of the house explained to the curious.

Back in the 1930s, people were having little trouble finding Uncle Dave Macon. Churches came to him to see if he would help them raise money; auctioneers came to him to get him to play for country sales to attract bidders; vaudeville bookers came with offers to play tours that ranged from Boston to Florida; schoolhouse superintendents came to him asking for a show to help buy books in Depression-wracked rural districts. Even the bank of nearby Woodbury came to him when they finished building the new bank and had to transfer all the money from the old one: could they hire Uncle Dave to sit on top of the wagon with the money chests and play his banjo during the move? Surely no desperado would dare to try to rob a wagon that had Uncle Dave Macon sitting on top of it.

People all over Middle Tennessee knew David Harrison Macon and were used to seeing him at local schools and on the little courthouse squares. He was the one with the chin whiskers, the red suspenders, the gold watch and chain, and what Judge Hay at the Grand Ole Opry called "that million dollar Tennessee smile."  He was the one with the hat that bore the hat band slogan 'Old But Regular,' that twirled his banjo like it was a baton and fanned it with his hat, and that refused to drive a car because they weren't as dependable as mules. But he was also the one that was heard every Saturday night on the Grand Ole Opry, and that was featured on dozens of Victrola records put out by Vocalion, Brunswick, RCA, Okeh, Champion, and Montgomery Ward. He was the one who was country music's first real superstar, winning a national reputation years before Jimmie Rodgers or The Carter Family ever stepped into a studio. For years he was the most popular single performer on the Opry, a grand old man whose humor and personality won him fans everywhere. He was the first artist to make style a part of country music. As one of his fans said, "He may not have been the best banjo player or the best singer, but he sure as heck was the best something!"

David Harrison Macon had roots running deep into Tennessee history. He was born October 7, 1870, in the community of Smartt Station in Warren County; in Uncle Dave's own words, "I was born near the beautiful mountain town of McMinnville."  His father was Captain John Macon, born in Warrenton, North Carolina, in 1829 and a Civil War veteran. His mother was Martha Ann Ramsey, a native of Viola in Warren County, born in 1838. The 1870 census for the 9th Civil District shows David Harrison was the ninth child born to the family. The oldest was a daughter Lou (born 1856), followed by Vanderbilt (b. 1857), Betty (b. 1858), Samuel (b. 1860), George (b. ca. 1862), John (b. 1879), and Sallie C. (b. ca. 1867). After David Harrison would come two younger children, Bob (b. 1875) and Pearl (b. ca. 1879). Some of these siblings – especially Lou and Bob – would play important roles in Uncle Dave's later career.

Captain John Macon was a well-known and popular figure in Warren County. His own father was a Henry Harrison Macon, who in turn was descended from a Revolutionary War hero, Colonel John Macon, and from his uncle, Nathaniel Macon, a North Carolina Congressman and one-time Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Sometime prior to 1830 Henry Harrison Macon settled in Warren County, on Hickory Creek, on a plot of some 600 acres. Before his death in 1851, Henry Harrison Macon expanded his holdings by over 2,000 more acres, and had established a distillery, as well as a saw mill, grist mill, and cotton gin.

The Macon family Bible indicates that John married Martha Ann Ramsey on December 2, 1855, in Warren County. The young couple soon built a handsome house in McMinnville, and the Macon Brothers bought a grocery store, a tin shop, and a mercantile business downtown. All this, as well as John and Martha's growing family, was interrupted in 1861, with the outbreak of the War Between the States. Both Macon brothers closed their stores and joined the 35th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, sometimes called the First Tennessee Mountain Rifle Regiment, commanded by Colonel Benjamin J. Hill. John Macon helped to organized the 2nd Company D; it along with some nine others was mustered in at Camp Smartt, near McMinnville, on September 6 and 7.

During the early days of the war, the regiment moved from Trousdale County to Bowling Green and finally to Shiloh, where they joined in one of the bloodiest battles of the conflict. Here the brigade the 35th was in suffered over 1,000 killed or wounded – over a third of its roster. Reorganized, the regiment fought in the northern Mississippi campaign, as well as at Perryville and at the Battle of Murfreesboro. The exact fate of 'Captain Macon's company' during the balance of the war is not clear; his regiment was reorganized and merged with others throughout the conflict, until their eventual dismissal at Greensboro, NC, on May 1, 1865. Nor are there any clear records to indicate exactly when Captain John returned home; he bought out his brother's share in the family businesses in 1862, and there is a record of the marriage of Joseph in 1865. We do know that by 1867 Captain John had reopened his store with a new partner.

The world young David Macon was born into in 1870 was the grim world of the Reconstruction South. In Warren County, crops lay fallow, buildings were in disrepair, and money was in short supply. Still, two generations of Macon prosperity gave the family at least some sort of cushion, and the year young David was born, his father was still relatively prosperous. The census records gave his real estate value that year as $2000, his 'personal value' estimated at $4000 – over six times the average per capita income in the state at that time. The Macon household also included three live-in employees, two housekeepers and a 'male farm laborer.' Though the Macon family was large, it was well provided for; young David was soon attending school in town, and listening to some of the folk music from the region. His sister Lou was an accomplished pianist, and often bought the latest sheet music to try out in the family parlor. Through her, David picked up rudiments of singing and a knowledge of songs.

The young boy was soon playing the guitar – he had not been introduced to the banjo yet – and picking up songs. Many years later, when asked if he remembered the first song he learned, he smiled, nodded, and proceeded to sing it. It was a comic piece called Greenback.
