Jimmie Skinner: Doin' My Time (6-CD)

6-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 92-seitigem gebundenen Buch, 162 Einzeltitel. Spielzeit ca. 465 Minuten.


Jimmie Skinner hat die Richtung vorgegeben, der viele aktuelle Sänger und Liedermacher des 'Alternativ-Country' folgen. Er selbst war beeinflußt von Blues-Künstlern seiner Jugendzeit, schrieb melancholische Lieder voller Verzweiflung und Wut, ausgestattet mit eingängigen, unvergeßlichen Melodien. Enttäuscht darüber, daß er keinen Vertrag bei einem der bedeutenden Labels bekam, produzierte und vertrieb er seine Platten selbst. Als seine Profi-Karriere begann, war er schon fast 40 Jahre alt – berühmt wurde Jimmie Skinner Ende der vierziger Jahre mit populär gebliebenen Songs wie Let's Say Goodbye
(Like We Said Hello), Will You Be Satisfied That Way, You Don't Know My Mind, Don't Give Your Heart To A Rambler und Doin' My Time.

Als eingeschworener Außenseiter der Countrymusic-Szene scherte sich Jimmie Skinner nicht darum, was in Nashville zur Tagesordnung gehörte. Seine Überempfindlichkeit und seine Visionen paßten ganz einfach nicht in die musikalische Landschaft. Jimmie Skinner reduzierte die Countrymusic auf ihre schnörkellose Ursprünglichkeit – in etwa so, wie es Sam Phillips später mit Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins,
Jerry Lee Lewis und speziell mit Johnny Cash und dessen Tennessee Two praktizierte. Jimmie Skinners Begleitung war auf das Nötigste beschränkt und eher rigide, er schlug aggressiv auf die Saiten seiner Gitarre und schuf auf diese Weise einen Backbeat, den sich später eine ganze Generation von Rockabilly-Sängern zueigen machte. Der Mandolinenspieler Ray Lunsford etwa begleitete Jimmie Skinner mit seinem leicht verschrobenem Takt-Verständnis, indem er Takt und Melodie kaum voneinander unterschied. Wenn Jimmie Skinners Phrasierungen auch an die eines Jimmie Rodgers oder frühen Ernest Tubb erinnerten, hatte seine Stimme etwas völlig Eigenständiges – ein warmes Bariton-Geknurre tönte damals aus den Musikboxen.

Als die bedeutenden Labels ihn endlich akzeptierten, kämpfte Jimmie Skinner für seine künstlerische Integrität. Seine Standhaftigkeit zahlte sich Ende der fünfziger Jahre aus – etliche Country-Hits forderten den ansonsten dominierenden Nashville-Sound heraus, darunter I Found My Girl In The U.S.A., What Makes A Man Wander und Dark Hollow. Als sich die Countrymusic zu verändern begann, machte
Jimmie Skinner nicht mit – freiwillig beendete er seine Karriere.

Früher eine der bekanntesten und beliebtesten Persönlichkeiten der Countrymusic, ist Jimmie Skinner heute nahezu vergessen. Nur einige seiner Singles wurden auf LPs wiederveröffentlicht, noch weniger auf Compact Disc. Die vorliegende, lange überfällige Lieder-Sammlung enthält endlich Skinners wichtigste Aufnahmen. Auf fünf CDs sind seine klassischen Aufnahmen für Red Barn, Radio Artists, Capitol, Decca und Mercury aus den Jahren 1947 bis 1962 enthalten – ergänzt durch Azetate und seltene Bluegrass-Tracks, die damals exklusiv über das Jimmie Skinner Music Center verkauft wurden. Auf der 6. CD liest
Jimmie Skinner persönlich Auszüge aus seiner unvollendeten Autobiographie. In einem unverwechselbaren Erzähl-Stil gibt Jimmie Skinner Geschichten aus der Zeit der Weltwirtschaftskrise preis, berichtet über seine ersten Versuche als Musiker, die frustrierenden Bemühungen um einen Plattenvertrag, über seine Hoch-Zeit beim Hörfunk in Knoxville und schließlich über seine Entscheidung, sich ins südwestliche Ohio zurückzuziehen.

Der Countrymusic-Spezialist David Sax hat für diese Edition eng mit Jimmie Skinners Angehörigen zusammengearbeitet, mit Jimmie Skinners früherem Gitarristen Rusty York und anderen, die dem Country-Star nahestanden. Im Zug der Recherche entdeckte David Sax unveröffentlichte Radio-Artists-Master-Azetate sowie Dutzende Fotos, Presseausschnitte und weitere Memorabilia in gedruckter Form.
Für den Text des 92-seitigen gebundenen Begleitbuchs verarbeitete Autor Dave Samuelson Artikel aus Zeitschriften und Fanzines, O-Töne und Interviews – das Resultat ist eine detaillierte Schilderung des aufregenden Lebens, der Musik und Karriere des Jimmie Skinner. 'Doin' My Time' ist die ultimative Edition über eine der faszinierendsten Persönlichkeiten in der Geschichte der Countrymusic.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Skinner, Jimmie"

Jimmie Skinner

Had the category of 'alt-country' existed fifty years ago, Jimmie Skinner would fit right in. A brilliant singer-songwriter, Skinner was an intriguing personality who literally marched to the beat of his own drummer. His music seems more suited to juke-joint Wurlitzers than genteel living room Crosleys, yet Skinner's appeal crossed gender lines, attracting as many women as men. Some cite Skinner as a primal influence on the first generation of rockabillies. Others notice parallels between Johnny Cash's early Sun sound and the stark minimalism of Skinner's classic recordings.

As a songwriter, his talent was nonpareil. His admirers included Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Fred Rose, Jimmy Martin, and Johnny Cash. His lyrics were usually melancholy and occasionally angry; his melodies were usually catchy and occasionally hypnotic. As a performer, Skinner followed a peculiar internal clock that vexed the most patient, attentive musicians. He thrashed his guitar with as much emphasis on his upstroke as his downstroke, creating a double-time effect. More often than not, Skinner started singing on the backbeat – sometimes early, sometimes late. By his own admission, his singing voice was rough. If his blues-tinged delivery often reflected his heroes Jimmie Rodgers and Ernest Tubb, Skinner's voice was unmistakably his own – a deep, resonant baritone that seemed to growl.

At one time Skinner was one of country music's best-known, best-loved personalities. Through the fifties and sixties, virtually every country music magazine featured a full-page monthly ad promoting The Jimmie Skinner Music Center in downtown Cincinnati. Each type-heavy ad sported a halftone of the store's genial proprietor wearing his trademark Kentucky Colonel hat, narrow necktie and inviting smile. If your local record store didn't stock that new Columbia record by Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper or that Starday single by Jimmie Williams & Red Ellis that you just heard on WCKY, Jimmie Skinner could send it to you. And when visiting Cincinnati, stop by 222 E. Fifth Street any weekday morning to watch Jimmie broadcast live in person from the Music Center's display window. At one point grocers even stocked Jimmie Skinner coffee, freshly ground and vacuum-packed.

That was then. Mention Skinner's name to any country music fan or knowledgeable radio personality today, chances are you'll get a puzzled stare. Even though he placed ten records in 'Billboard's country charts between 1949 and 1960 – four in the Top 10 – Skinner has largely been forgotten. Relatively few of his singles were reissued on LP, much less on compact disc. Once in awhile you'll stumble across a budget-priced Skinner cassette or compact disc in a Midwestern or Southern truck stop. They're usually disappointing recordings he made late in life, backed by inattentive bluegrass musicians who lacked the finesse that Skinner's singing demands.

Nor do traces of this country music giant linger near Ohio's Queen City. The Jimmie Skinner Music Center's downtown location – a Mecca to people who loved edgy, uncompromising country and gospel music – was demolished decades ago. The electric sign that proudly hung over its façade deserves a display in the Cincinnati History Museum. Instead, it sits two thousand miles away, a rusty relic treasured by a San Diego record collector.
