Red River Dave: Authentic Hillbilly Ballads & Topical Songs Vol.1 (CD)

(2017/Omni) 27 tracks 1964-1976 (79:09) with 12 page booklet.
 ,-
Notorious for his 1970 song 'California Hippie Murders!' – a ghoulish, harrowing, yodelling retelling of the infamous (Charles Manson masterminded) Tate-La-Bianca slayings – Red River Dave was a genuine cowboy singing star turned tabloid balladeer. While 'California Hippie Murders!' might seem chilling and bizarre, within the body of ed River Dave' McEnery epic saga songs (collected here for the very first time), it makes perfect sense.
 ,-
The Moon landings, the kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst, the Vietnam conflict, the assassination of JFK, the murder of young Emmett Till, Korean War anchurian Candidate' brainwashing, patriotic tirades and Cold War dirges – all grist for the great Red River Dave Hillbilly song-mill. Often cut within hours or days of the event and pressed as minuscule edition private 45s: the tall, flamboyant, »Buffalo Bill« bearded McEnery cut a dashing figure in his gold-sprayed cowboy boots and cracking lariat – as he hawked these handcrafted cuts from the boot of his steer-horned Cadillac.
Some sides presented here are so rare as to be near-mythical – you'll hear Red River Dave wax about the death of Marilyn Monroe and the Bay of Pigs – in an eccentric and forgotten chronicle of the 20th century experience.

Red River Dave

born: San Antonio, Texas, December 15, 1914; died: January 15, 2002

 

A veteran western entertainer whose career spans seven decades, Red River Dave is best known as a prolific com-poser of topical, patriotic, and sentimental ballads.

A native of San Antonio, David McEnery toured the rodeo circuits as a youth, winning Texas championships at rope twirling and yodeling. With interest in singing cow-boys at a peak, McEnery began his broadcasting career in San Antonio and on BORDER RADIO before moving east in the mid-1930s. After performing on stations in Virginia and Florida, he landed a regular slot on WOR–New York, in 1938; the Mutual Radio Network fed his program to its nationwide affiliates.

Encouraged by songwriter-publisher Bob Miller, McEnery began writing and recording topical songs; "Amelia Earhart's Last Flight" became a country- folk standard. In May 1939 he sang on an experimental television broadcast at the New York World's Fair.

Returning to Texas after World War II, McEnery re-corded for numerous postwar labels, appeared in several low-budget westerns, and began performing over WOAI–San Antonio. He also cut transcriptions for Mexi-can border stations. McEnery was a popular San Antonio television personality through the 1950s and 1960s.

In 1967 he largely retired from music to concentrate on his real-estate business, although he continued producing self-accompanied topical singles on his own labels. He re-turned to music in the late 1970s in Nashville; he then moved to California, where he occasionally performed at Knott's Berry Farm near Anaheim. — Dave Samuelson
