Bobby Mitchell: I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday (2-CD Deluxe Box Set)

2-CD-Box (LP-Format) mit 20-seitigem Buch, 47 Titel. Spieldauer ca. 111 mns.

Fortsetzung unserer Erkundung von New Orleans R&B auf dem klassischen Imperial-Label, wir freuen uns bekannt zu geben, dass wir die kompletten Imperial-Aufnahmen der enorm unterbewerteten Bobby Mitchell zusammengestellt haben. Obwohl er die Originalversionen von I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday (später mit großem Erfolg von Fats Domino) und You Always Hurt The One You Love (später mit noch größerem Erfolg von Clarence Frogman Henry) aufgenommen hat, Bobby Mitchell hat weder als Sänger noch als Songwriter sein Recht bekommen. 

Es ist keine Übertreibung zu sagen, dass er nach Fats Domino der Zweite war, weil er gezeigt hat, wie sich New Orleans R&B an den Rock'n' Roll anpassen konnte. Der fabelhafte 50er Jahre New Orleans Sound ist populärer denn je, und Bobby Mitchell ist eines der großen vernachlässigten Talente. Es ist Zeit für eine etwas verspätete Anerkennung. Diese Zusammenstellung enthält auch seine Sho-Biz, Ron und Rip Aufnahmen.


“I’m gonna be a wheel someday,
I’m gonna be some-body
I’m gonna be a real gone cat,
Then I won’t want you.“

Die Worte, die vor fast 40 Jahren zu einem Rock'n'Roll-Klassiker wurden, wurden erstmals von einem Mann veröffentlicht, der ironischerweise wenig mit diesen Worten der automobilen Coolness zu tun hatte.  Bobby Mitchell kam nie in die Nähe, ein "Rad" im Plattengeschäft zu werden.  Als Sänger mit einer kraftvollen Tenor-Bariton-Stimme und einem Stil, der irgendwo zwischen seinen beiden Imperial-Records-Labelmates Fats Domino und Smiley Lewis lag, war Bobby dennoch ein geliebter Lieblingssohn der Rhythm & Blues-Fans in New Orleans.  Plattensammler sowohl von New Orleans R&B als auch von Vokalgruppen weltweit, die seine Platten finden konnten, haben seine Größe längst erkannt.

Auf einer persönlichen Ebene war Bobby immer das Gegenteil von dem, was der Song beschreibt.  Als Familienmensch zog er zusammen mit seiner Frau Marcia acht Kinder auf.  Bis zu seinem Tod im Jahr 1989 war Bobby ein wandelnder, sprechender und singender Botschafter des New Orleans Rhythm & Blues.  Er war ein wesentlicher Bestandteil des wieder auflebenden Interesses an der Musik in den 1980er Jahren, von seinen Auftritten bei Shows wie dem New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival bis hin zu seiner lang laufenden Radioshow auf WWOZ.  Passenderweise zierte Bobbys Gesicht im November 1980 das allererste Cover des New Orleans Musikmagazins "Wavelength".

Bobbys Geschichte beginnt auf Rädern am 16. August 1935, als er in einem Taxi an der Ecke Brooklyn und Houma Street geboren wird, direkt neben der Fähre in Algiers, Louisiana auf der anderen Seite des Mississippi von New Orleans.  Wie seine Geburt, so ist auch Bobbys Kindheit nicht einfach, wie er Jeff Hannusch in der ersten Ausgabe von 'Wavelength' erzählte...

BOBBY MITCHELL

I’M GONNA BE A WHEEL SOMEDAY

“I’m gonna be a wheel someday,

  I’m gonna be some-body

 I’m gonna be a real gone cat,

Then I won’t want you.“

The words that became a rock ‘n’ roll classic nearly 40 years ago were first released by a man who ironically had little connection with those words of vehicular cool.  Bobby Mitchell never came close to becoming a ‘wheel’ in the record business.  A singer with a powerful tenor-baritone voice and a style somewhere between his two Imperial Records labelmates, Fats Domino and Smiley Lewis, Bobby was still a beloved favorite son of rhythm & blues fans in New Orleans.  Record collectors of both New Orleans R&B and vocal groups worldwide who were able to find his records have long recognized his greatness.

On a personal level, Bobby was always the opposite of the put-down the song describes.  A family man, he and his wife Marcia raised eight children.  Until his death in 1989, Bobby was a walking, talking, singing goodwill ambassador of New Orleans rhythm & blues.  He was an integral part of the revival  of interest in the music in the 1980s, from his performances at shows including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival to his long-running radio show on WWOZ.  Appropriately, Bobby’s face graced the first ever cover of ‘Wavelength’, the New Orleans music magazine, in November 1980.

Bobby’s story starts out on wheels on August 16, 1935, when he is born in a taxicab at Brooklyn and Houma Street, next to the Ferry in Algiers, Louisiana across the Mississippi River from New Orleans.  Like his birth, Bobby’s childhood is not easy, as he toldJeff Hannusch in the first issue of  ‘Wavelength’.

“I was raised up on the river batch [batture]. I had eight brothers and eight sisters.  Fishin’ was our livin’.  I used to cut wood and sell wood before I even went to school.  I was the second oldest, so I had to be one of the supporters.  My great-aunt helped to raise me, and she told me ‘I want you to be a man, and a man completely.  You don’t have to be out here stealing because you know how to work.’  So when I was about 10 years old, I managed to get me another little job after school delivering liquor, for a liquor store.  I used to sing around the liquor store and a lot of people used to give me nickels and dimes.

“Well a lot of people said ‘Bobby, you’re  great, why don’t you try and do something?’  Well at that time I was strictly a religious kid; I just wanted to get along and make something out of myself.  I didn’t want to get into music; I wanted to work and get away from there!”

Bobby joins the football team at L.B. Landry High School, but after getting his knee ‘busted’, he joins the chorus instead, where the teacher, Margie Dickerson, is duly impressed with his stentorian vocals.  She has him singing solos on the show-stoppers You’ll Never Walk Alone and Ol’ Man River.  By late 1952, Bobby and a dozen girls and guys in the chorus and band start a group called ‘The Louisiana Groovers’.

“And so happened I wrote a tune which was ‘One Friday Morning’, which was a valentine song, also the song for L.B. Landry High School.  We talked to Mr. Neely, our history teacher,  about it, and Mr. Neely said the best thing for me to do is to try and cut us a record.  He liked the words and we talked to Mr. Martin, the librarian, and he recorded it on a tape recorder.  He brought the tape to Dr. Daddy-O at that time, who was at Dryades Street at the radio station.  He auditioned us at radio station WMRY.”

After the radio show,Bobby is joined by Lloyd Bellaire (tenor--born January 15, 1935), Joseph Butler (tenor), Willie Bridges (baritone), Frank Bocage (bass) and a pianist, Gabriel Fleming.

“Bobby had written a song,” says Lloyd Bellaire, “and I formed the group, the Toppers, to background him.  I always did like group singing and good harmony, with a deep bass beat background, a good bass movement.  That’s the things I would focus on. Gabriel was strictly a piano man, he could really play that piano.  We counted on him for rehearsals.  When we did [gigs], all we had was Gabriel on the piano.”

“So I talked to Mr. Neely about it again and he introduced me to Dave Bartholomew.  And I went there at the San Jacinto one Carnival Day and I met Dave.  And he told me the only way he would record me is through Imperial and first I had to make some demos at J&M Studios.  Dave said, ‘Well, we’ll give you a try.’  So it was about three weeks after that we went to Cosimo’s studio on Rampart Street.  So when we got there Dave Bartholomew told us, ‘We gonna cut!’  We said, ‘Cut?’  We didn’t know what he was talkin’ about.  And I’m gettin’ nervous, he must be gonna cut somebody, ‘cause he sure ain’t gonna cut me!”

Bartholomew is interested since R&B vocal groups like the Dominoes are hot.

“We were looking for groups,” says Bartholomew. “So we recorded Bobby Mitchell with the Toppers.  They never did sell anything too much, but they made a little noise so we just kept on trying thinking maybe one day we might get something.“

 That's how Bobby Mitchell came to Dave Bartholomew's attention, by being in the Toppers right out of Landry High School. While walking back and forth to the studio to practice with Dave Bartholomew and his band, the group come up with their first song.

“Lloyd said, ‘Well, I’m tired of walkin’,’ ‘cause we used to have to walk seven or eight miles a day to go to the studio.  To come from across the river all the way down to Rampart Street to Cosimo’s studio at the time.  And we just ride the ferry, walk over and walk back.  Everybody said we were gonna do Dixieland, that’s where the idea came from, ‘cause we was all in the middle of the street and was actin’ like we was paradin’ and all.  We had to describe the same feeling we were havin’ then.  We were havin’ fun.  During those days, Cadillac was the idol of everybody, so we had to use Cadillac.  And we was a bunch of  big shots!  Like in French--‘Bon temps roulez’-- we just put it ‘Rack ‘em Back,’ as a hip name.  ‘Rack ‘em Back’ just meant having a lot of fun.

New Orleans Rhythm & Blues at its best

Fantastic box set about the guy who did the best version of 'I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday' which was composed by Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew! The slap bass is so great and Mitchell's version grooves much more than Fats Domino's and besides that the whole set is a real dig and I've listened to it many a times and still enjoy this great musician!
