Various - Greetings From: Greetings From Texas

Various Greetings From Texas


When Americans meet each other, the first question they usually ask is, "Where you from?"

If the answer is 'New Jersey,' 'Kansas' or 'Rhode Island,' there's often a polite silence. Followed by a change of subject. But if the answer is 'Texas,' it's not unusual to hear some genuine enthusiasm. "Really! What's it like?"

Like it or not, there is awe surrounding Texas. Sure, it's big. In fact, it's almost the biggest state there is. The Sons of Sam Houston probably still haven't forgiven those upstart Alaskans. But in any case the response you get goes beyond land mass. There's something about Texas. Texas is a culture. It's a way of life. People from Texas are not simply average Americans. They're Texans. There have probably been more movies about Texas than any other state, and as far as music goes….well, just read on.

Mind you, not all the qualities associated with Texas are admirable. Like movies and music, there are probably more jokes about Texas than there are about any other state in the union. Texans take a fair amount of ribbing about who they are and what they do. Ribbing, of course, is the least you can expect when your national cuisine is barbeque. Who can count all the jokes about Texans who die, go to Heaven (or Hell) and end up getting barbeque sauce all over the place? One way or another they manage to antagonize the guy in charge. St. Peter complains because there are pickup trucks or empty six packs all over the streets of gold. The Devil complains because a bad day in Hell is "like a spring day in Amarillo." And besides, the damned Texans are barbequing on the fires of Hell and have installed air conditioning just in case it really heats up a bit. In short, Texans take their culture with them wherever they travel, including the hereafter.

Texans, as well as visitors from more temperate climes, have a lot to say about Texas weather. The heat is a big topic of conversation. Texans pick their parking places by shade, not distance. They know that a seat belt in July does a pretty good imitation of a branding iron. Droughts, too, are a way of life. Texans long ago stopped associating bridges with water. As folks in the country say, "It's so dry the trees are bribin' the dogs."

Just about every quality of Texas life – whether good, bad or indifferent – is on display on this collection. Twenty-five songs telling you a whole lot of what you need to know about Texas and Texans. Here are the things that Texans are proudest of, right along side a few other qualities they may not be quite as proud of, but they sure ain't ashamed enough to stop writing and singing songs about them.

You'd think that a collection like this would consist solely of native Texans singing their pride, but that's not the case. Admittedly many of these artists hail from Texas – men like Ernest Tubb, Willie Nelson, and Tex Ritter, but there are plenty of exceptions. And speaking of Mr. Ritter, when a guy adopts the name of a state as his first name, you know you're on to some serious identity issues. And Tex Ritter is just the tip of the iceberg. Think about Tex Williams – who came from Illinois! There just aren't too many guys out there calling themselves 'Illinois Williams' or 'New Jersey Jones' or 'Pennsylvania Smith.'

Along with Williams, there are quite a few non-Texans on this collection proudly singing about the joys and perils of life in the Lone Star state. When you have a guy of Scandinavian ancestry like Ole Rasmussen (whose California-based band was named the Nebraska Cornhuskers) or a Canadian from Nova Scotia singing about Texas, you know there's something powerful going on. And Hank Snow isn't the only Canadian on board this train. There's fellow Nova Scotian Wilf Carter as well. And there are lots of out-of-state Americans like Sanford Clark (Oklahoma), Hank Locklin (Florida), Rex Allen (Arizona), and old Roy Rogers, himself, who hailed from Ohio. Nothing stopped these non-Texans from singing the praises of Texas.

Postkarten aus Amerika

1x USA pauschal gefällig? Gern, aber vergessen Sie TUI, l'tur, Neckermann!
Wir empfehlen statt dessen 'amb' – ein Unternehmen, das Sie.....
.....hinbringt, ohne wegfahren zu müssen;
.....informiert, ohne zu belehren;
.....unterhält, ohne zu langweilen.

Und all das – und noch mehr – zu Preisen an der Grenze zum Geschenk. 

'amb' könnte für 'amerika billig' stehen, ist aber – natürlich – das Kürzel für '...and more bears', das noch junge Label von Bear Family Records.

Also alles nur Spinnerei? Nein. Denn 'amb' lädt tatsächlich ein zu exklusiven Entdeckungsreisen in die (musikalische) Historie der USA – akribisch sortiert nach Bundesstaaten von Nord nach Süd, von West nach Ost. Jeder dieser speziellen Trips ist untergebracht auf 12 Zentimetern Durchmesser – damit kleiner als jeder wissenschaftliche Atlas und mit dem vielfachen Inhalt dessen, was eine noch so bunte Hochglanzpostkarte bieten kann:

Dies sind echte, authentische, erlebte und weitergegebene 'Greetings From. . .' !

Selbstverständlich kompetent und fundiert - aber ohne Oberlehrerhaftes, ohne Staubtrockenes (auch wenn es schon mal in die Wüste gehen kann), ohne touristisches Gehetze von einem Museum zum nächsten Wasserfall.

Texas und Tennessee waren bereits im Angebot, Oklahoma und Hawaii, Georgia und Alabama kamen anschließend hinzu. Und, mal ehrlich, wer außer '...amb' könnte Reiseleiter mit dem Bekanntheitsgrad eines Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson oder Waylon Jennings präsentieren? Von der Bedeutung eines Jim Reeves, Don Gibson oder Bill Monroe? Von der Klasse eines Tex Ritter, Roy Rogers Louis Jordan, oder Hank Snow?

Sie alle (und viele andere) präsentieren ihre Heimat - Land und Leute, Terrains und Typen - auf ihre ganz eigene, unverwechselbare Art und Weise. Und geben musikalisch Details auf Fragen preis, von denen übliche Prospekte oder geschönte Werbefilmchen nur träumen können:

Was war da los mit den Wassermelonen in Georgia? Wie fanden auf Hawaii Rock 'n' Roll und Hula zusammen? Und welche Bedeutung hatte eigentlich der dicke Sam aus Alabama? 'Greetings From....' geben die Antworten !

Wie waren die Honky Tonk Girls in Oklahoma wirklich? Klangen die Kirchenglocken in Tennessee schon immer so? Und wem war das Wiegenlied in Texas gewidmet?  'Greetings From....' klären auf nach Noten!

Tauchen Sie ein in die Riffe vor Hawaii, hüten Sie sich vor dem Knast in Alabama, wippen Sie mit zum Walzer in Oklahoma, zu Polka, Jive und Two Step in Tennessee! 'Greetings From....' laden dazu ein !

Erleben Sie nordamerikanische Geschichte(n), Geographie und Traditionen zum Anfassen – durch vertonte Episoden aus erster Hand.

Postkarten aus Amerika

Die CD-Cover dieser Reihe sind klassischen amerikanischen Postkarten nachempfunden, in denen der Schriftzug des jeweiligen Staates mit repräsentativen Fotos unterlegt ist.
