Robert Mitchum: Calypso Is Like So... (180gram vinyl)

Video von Robert Mitchum - Calypso Is Like So... (180gram vinyl)

180-Gramm Vinyl.
  • 1956, auf dem Höhepunkt des kurzlebigen Calypso-Booms, führte Harry Belafonte weltweit die Charts an.
  • Zur gleichen Zeit drehte Robert Mitchum auf den Westindischen Inseln zwei Filme, 'Das Spiel mit dem Feuer (Fire Down Below)' und 'Der Seemann und die Nonne (Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison)'.
Calypso stammte ursprünglich aus Trinidad, und Mitchum filmte 'Der Seemann und die Nonne' auf Trinidads Schwesterinsel Tobago. Die zweite Hauptdarstellerin, Deborah Kerr, erinnert sich: 'Er besaß ein ausgeprägtes musikalisches Wissen und Rhythmusgefühl. Innerhalb von nur einerWoche beherrschte er die Lieder der Westindischen Inseln mit ihren komplizierten Rhythmen.' Als die Dreharbeiten für 'Das Spiel mit dem Feuer' vorbei waren, sang Mitchum Calypsos in den Clubs der Insel. Auch nach seiner Rückkehr in die Vereinigten Staaten sang er Calypsos. Jemand von Capitol Records hörte ihn in der Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills und nahm ihn unter Vertrag. In nur wenigen Nächten im Frühjahr 1957 nahm Mitchum seine LP 'Calypso - Is Like So' auf, ein Klassiker des Genres. Mit Hilfe seines skurrilen Humors machte er aus alten Nummern, die er auf den Inseln gehört hatte, neue Calypsos. Das Resultat Ein Lounge-Klassiker. Wir haben diese LP neu herausgebracht - mit dem sagenhaften 'weißer-Mann-richtet-sich-in-den-Tropen-zugrunde'-Cover

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Mitchum, Robert"

ROBERT MITCHUM  

TALL DARK STRANGER

Robert Mitchum was a paradox. He was a man who professed indifference about his acting yet was highly respected by his peers. Deborah Kerr, who starred with him in 'Heaven Knows Mister Allison' and 'The Sundowners', said "as an actor he is superb. He is a fantastically sensitive, decent human being."  Mitchum told interviewers he didn't care about anything except enjoying life yet he worked continuously throughout his long career as his enormous filmography indicates.

Although music wasn't the focal point of Mitchum's life it was always something he enjoyed and about which he was quite knowledgeable. Mitchum dabbled at writing music and poetry and on a few occasions he was talked into recording. His two albums, 'Calypso Is Like So' and 'That Man' along with his single record of The Ballad Of Thunder Road (which he cowrote), can be heard on 'That Man' (Bear Family BCD 15890 AH).

The songs on this CD can be described as the forgotten recordings. They weren't intended for release but, thankfully, are now seeing the light of day. The first six songs all come from the film 'Rachel And The Stranger'. Released in 1948, the film starred Mitchum, William Holden and Loretta Young. Holden plays a man pouring all his energies into building a homestead while taking his wife for granted. When a stranger, in the form of Robert Mitchum, appears, Holden begins realizing both how much he loves her and that he hasn't been paying her enough attention. Interspersed throughout the film are the six songs heard here. They are as relaxed and wistful as is Mitchum's portrayal of the stranger.

In 1969 Mitchum starred in  the western 'Young Billy Young’ which also featured Angie Dickinson and Robert Walker. Loosely based on the supposed friendship between Wyatt Earp and Billy Clanton, Mitchum is a sheriff who takes Robert Walker under his wing. Mitchum sang the title song over the opening and ending credits of the film.

The most intriguing part of this album are the seven songs Robert Mitchum recorded as demos. The exact purpose for these recordings isn't entirely clear but the enjoyment they offer is readily apparent. Most of the songs are standards and Mitchum shows that he is just as comfortable with them as he is with the songs from his films.

Robert Mitchum was 79 when he died on July 1, 1997 at his home in Santa Barbara, California. To the end he was nonchalant about his career. "I think when producers have a part that's hard to cast they say, 'send for Mitchum, he'll do anything.'"  On another occasion he was asked why he thought his career had lasted as long as it had. "I work cheap" was his self depreciating response. The real reason was his uniqueness, his professionalism and the depth of his talent.
