The Weavers: Goodnight Irene, 1949-1953 (4-CD & 1-DVD)

4-CD/1 DVD Box (LP-Format) mit 48-seitigem gebundendem Buch, 106 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 290 Minuten.

1950 katapultierten die Weavers mit ihrem Hit Goodnight Irene die Folkmusik in die amerikanische Hitparade. Die Menschen waren von der eingängigen Melodie und dem satten Arrangement von Gordon Jenkins sofort angetan. Was die Aufnahme aber wirklich von allem unterschied, was in der Popmusik bislang geboten worden war, das waren die schwungvollen und leidenschaftlichen Stimmen des Quartetts. Man konnte dem Song oder seiner beliebten B-Seite Tzena, Tzena, Tzena nicht entgehen. In den Musikboxen und bei den Radiosendern liefen beide Songs rauf und runter, und die Verkaufszahlen schwangen sich in die Region von Millionen. In den kommenden achtzehn Monaten übernahmen die Weavers mit Folkliedern wie So Long (It's Been Good To Know Yuh), The Roving Kind, On Top Of Old Smokey und
Kisses Sweeter Than Wine die Federführung in den Charts. Plötzlich wirkten die weichen Harmonien der Vierziger, die Pied Pipers, Six Hits And A Miss, die Merry Macs und die Modernaires angestaubt. Die Popmusik sollte sich in den Fünfzigern wandeln, und die Weavers gehörten zu den Ersten, die diese neue Aera einläuteten.

Niemand wurde von dem plötzlichen Erfolg mehr überrascht als die Weavers selbst: Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman und Pete Seeger. Entstanden in der Tradition der People's Song Movement der Nachkriegsjahre, entwickelte die Gruppe ihren Klang und ihr Repertoire in Hootenannys, Union Halls und bei politischen Versammlungen in New York weiter. Ein längerfristiger Vertrag im Village Vanguard in den frühen Fünfzigern führte zu einer Freundschaft mit dem Arrangeur Gordon Jenkins, der die skeptischen Macher von Decca Records davon überzeugte, das Quartett unter Vertrag zu nehmen.

Doch der Ruhm der Weavers wurde genauso schnell demontiert, wie er entstanden war. Unter dem Deckmantel des Patriotismus enthüllten rechte Eiferer (McCarthy) mit großem Vergnügen ihre linken politischen Verbindungen. Organisationen wie die American League setzen mit Angst einflößenden Einschüchterungsversuchen die Promoter, Veranstalter und Medienvertreter unter Druck, damit sie die Gruppe boykottieren. Sie verschwanden aus dem Radio und Jobs wurden rar; doch Seeger, Hays, Gilbert und Hellerman hielten bis zu ihrer Trennung im Jahr 1953 beharrlich durch. Die Sympathien der Öffentlichkeit für die Band waren jedoch ungebrochen. Eine kaum beworbene Wiedervereinigung in der Carnegie Hall im Jahr 1955 war sofort ausverkauft, und jene, die sie besuchten, empfanden ihre Anwesenheit als Protest gegen die von rechts geschürte Hysterie.

Ein halbes Jahrhundert nach der Veröffentlichung von Goodnight Irene sind und bleiben die Weavers eine der beliebtesten Gruppen der amerikanischen Unterhaltungsmusik. Die Geschichte der Gruppe war Anlass für Dissertationen und hat Geschichtsforscher und Filmemacher zu Dokumentationen inspiriert. Seltsamerweise aber wurden eben jene frühen Aufnahmen, die zum aktuellen Revival der Folkmusik entscheidend beitrugen, bislang zum größten Teil nicht zusammengetragen und waren daher fast unmöglich zu finden.

Diese 4-CD/1-DVD-Sammlung von Bear Family porträtiert die ersten fünf Jahre der Geschichte der Weavers, beginnend mit den Charter- und Hootenanny-Sessions im Jahr 1949 und sechzehn weiteren bislang unveröffentlichten Azetaten von Probeaufnahmen (Auditions) sowie Aufnahmen des Radiosenders WNYC. Alle Aufnahmen für Decca und die Snaders sind enthalten; die Decca-Aufnahmen wurden von den Originalbändern digital überspielt. Die seltene 10-Inch (25 cm) LP 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' wurde um zwei bislang unveröffentlichte Weihnachtslieder erweitert. Auf der letzten CD sind neben zwei Dokumentationen eine Kinderschallplatte und Soundtrack-Aufnahmen enthalten; die Soloscheiben von Fred Hellerman und Ronnie Gilbert; der Versuch von Gordon Jenkins, 1955 den Sound der Weavers mit Hays, Hellerman und Sally Kaminsky wiederzubeleben -  und ein Radiointerview mit Charles Buddy Rogers aus dem Jahr 1950. Die fünfte Scheibe (NTSC) ist eine DVD, die die von 16mm Abzügen neu überspielten Snader-Kurzfilme der Weavers zeigt.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Weavers"

The Weavers

Carnegie Hall, New York City

Carnegie Hall, New York's premier concert venue, was filled to capacity on Christmas Eve, 1955. The occasion was the Weavers' first holiday concert in three years. Frankly, no one really expected to see them again. Starting in 1950, the folk group started a Gotham holiday tradition with its popular December concerts at Town Hall. But the Weavers quietly disbanded after its 1952 concert, partially because of internal pressures but primarily as victims of an unrelenting blacklist. "We took a sabbatical," bass singer Lee Hays later explained. "Then it turned into a Mondical and a Tuesdical."

But those years were creatively fallow, and some band members were virtually destitute. By 1955 banjo player and tenor lead Pete Seeger had built a small, loyal following through college appearances and steady-selling Folkways albums. But as Christmas bleakly approached, Seeger faced an uncertain future. In August he faced a hostile panel from the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Unlike other "unfriendly" witnesses who testified before HUAC, Seeger refused to invoke the Fifth Amendment when the committee prodded him about his political philosophies and connections to the American Communist Party. When he refused to answer questions that he felt were highly improper, the panel held the 36-year-old musician in contempt. Costly legal challenges and the likelihood of prison loomed ahead. College bookings Seeger counted on were cancelled after the press reported his testimony; the few jobs he was offered barely covered expenses.

Nor was Hays faring much better. Looking all of 60 years old but actually only 41, he scraped by as a free-lance writer, penning finely crafted stories for 'Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine,' pseudonymous pulp for men's magazines and commercial jingles for radio. Like Seeger, Hays also was subpoenaed before that HUAC panel that August. And like Seeger, he was an "unfriendly" witness, but dodged potentially incriminating questions by invoking Fifth Amendment privileges.

Twenty-eight-year-old baritone singer/guitarist Fred Hellerman still earned a living through music, but not as an on-stage performer. Besides teaching guitar, he produced and arranged recordings for folk labels that were emerging around New York City 

By comparison, 29-year-old Ronnie Gilbert was doing considerably better than her former partners, but from a continent away. Married to a dentist, she now lived in California, devoting much of her time to raising her young daughter. Still, Gilbert often thought about singing again to appreciative audiences.

Harold Leventhal, then serving as Seeger's manager and mentor, felt the time was ripe to get the Weavers together again – if anything, to redirect its members away from the creative lethargy that marked the past three years. He also knew how contentious each of them could be. Making a few calls, he learned Town Hall was unavailable, but Carnegie Hall had Christmas Eve open. Clearly, it was an expensive gamble, but Leventhal secured the space for the evening. Knowing it would be difficult for the Weavers to refuse him, he told each member that the other three agreed to this one-night-only reunion. "Harold didn't know whether anyone would remember the Weavers, or whether anybody would show up," Hellerman told Mary Katherine Aldin in 1993. "But he felt something had to be done."

When a small display ad promoting the concert appeared in a New York newspaper, tickets sold out almost immediately and hundreds of others were turned away. Attending the show was an act of defiance against the bigots and rightwing zealots who unrelentingly harassed the group earlier in the decade.

The audience's highly charged, emotional response to the Weavers' first appearance on stage took the group by surprise. After unhappily ending its career playing second-rate clubs like Duffy's Stardust Room on the outskirts of Cleveland, the Weavers triumphantly reemerged in America's leading concert hall. After the holiday, promoters from across the country called Leventhal, inquiring about the group's availability.

 Carnegie Hall concert launched a new, highly rewarding phase of the Weavers' career, augmented by a series of popular albums on Vanguard. From LPs to eight-track cartridges to cassettes to compact discs, these recordings basically remained in print for forty years. However, the earlier Decca singles that made the group's national reputation have only been sporadically available.
