Johnny Cash in Deutschland auf Platz 4 der Charts


Zehn Jahre nach seinem Tod steht der Man in Black wieder in den Charts. „Out Among The Stars“, das neu entdeckte Studio-Album mit 12 bisher unveröffentlichten Songs, stieg auf einem sensationellem 4. Platz in die deutschen Albumcharts ein. In Österreich erreichte es Platz 2 und in der Schweiz sogar die Pole-Position.

Die Songs auf Out Among The Stars wurden ursprünglich 1981 in den Columbia Studios in Nashville, Tennessee und 1984 in den 1111 Sound Studios aufgenommen, und von Billy Sherrill, dem damaligen A&R-Chef von CBS Records Nashville und Architekten des „Countrypolitan“ Sounds, produziert. Auf diesen Songs – die auch Duette mit June Carter Cash und Waylon Jennings umfassen – arbeitete Johnny mit einem erweiterten Ensemble zu dem auch der junge Marty Stuart an Gitarre und Mandoline sowie Mitglieder des Nashville A-Teams, wie Jerry Kennedy (Gitarre), Pete Drake (Steel Guitar), Hargus „Pig“ Robbins (Klavier) und Henry Strzelecki (Bass) gehörten.

Die Aufnahmen, die bisher in keinerlei Form veröffentlicht wurden, sind keine Demos, Outtakes oder alternative Fassungen. Während der Jahre, in denen Columbia Records Johnny Cashs letzte Alben auf ihrem Label veröffentlichten, lagerten sie in Tresorräumen und wurden anschließend vergessen. Erstmals tauchten die Bänder von Out Among The Stars 2012 auf, als John Carter Cash, zusammen mit den Cash-Experten von Legacy, sowohl die weitreichenden Archive seines Vaters und seiner Mutter in Hendersonville, Tennessee als auch die Archive von Sony Music katalogisierte. „Als meine Eltern starben, wurde es notwendig, das Material zu sichten“, berichtet er. „Wir fanden diese Aufnahmen, die Billy Sherrill in den frühen 80er Jahren produziert hatte … sie waren wunderschön.“
Zusammen mit Co-Produzent und Archivar Steve Berkowitz engagierte John Carter Cash Marty Stuart, Buddy Miller, Carlene Carter und weitere erstklassige Musiker, um das Album in den Cash Cabin Studios in Hendersonville, TN wiederherzustellen.

Das Ergebnis, Out Among The Stars, ist ein großartiges Album von Johnny Cash, das eine Verbindung zwischen dem revolutionären Rockabilly seiner „Sun Records“-Jahre und den epochalen letzten Alben, die er für American Recordings gemacht hat, herstellt. Im Laufe der fünf Jahrzehnte im Musikbusiness war Johnny Cash nicht nur einer der profiliertesten Künstler, die jemals Tonträger veröffentlicht haben, sondern auch ein Archetyp amerikanischer Musik – der „Man in Black“, dem es gelang, Teil der Popkultur zu  werden, ohne sich auszuverkaufen.

Vor dreißig Jahren entstanden, ist Out Among The Stars ein klassisches Album von Johnny Cash, das jetzt zum allerersten Mal zu hören sein wird.

UNRELEASED MUSIC FROM HANK WILLIAMS



PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MUSIC FROM HANK WILLIAMS SURFACES IN THE GARDEN SPOT PROGRAMS, 1950
 On May 20, Omnivore Recordings will issue 24 songs and jingles recorded
in Nashville, and last heard generations ago.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. —  Omnivore Recordings will soon release the full-length version of The Garden Spot Programs, 1950, featuring 24 performances, unheard for 64 years, from country music legend Hank Williams. Rescued from obscurity, these shows originally aired more than six decades ago; The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 collects material from the four episodes now known to exist. Due out May 20, 2014, the set follows the release of Omnivore’s collectible 10” vinyl Record Store Day EP sampler.
 From hits to standards to songs rarely (if ever) performed, this is pure Hank Williams, including playful between-song banter. Featuring fully restored audio, The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 is an exceptional listening experience. Painstakingly transferred, restored and mastered from original transcription discs by Grammy Award winning engineer Michael GravesWilliams’ daughter, Jett, is excited that her father’s lost material is not only seeing the light of day decades later, but will be available on CD, digital and LP.
The CD packaging contains rare photos and liner notes from the collection of set co-producer and Williams biographer Colin Escott. Also available on LP, the first pressing will be on limited edition, translucent red vinyl (with black vinyl to follow), containing Escott’s informative notes and a download card. 
Escott writes in his notes: “Set the time machine for early morning on KSIB-AM, Creston, Iowa. February 1950. Country radio was beginning its slow transition from live music to DJ shows. Live music and DJ shows were augmented by transcribed shows. After buying 15 minutes of airtime on small-market stations, sponsors would prerecord shows with well known artists, duplicate them, and ship them out on 12 or 16-inch transcribed discs.”

“That’s how Hank Williams came to be on KSIB in February 1950. Sandwiched between the local ‘live’ acts, it was almost as if he were visiting with Skeets and those Radio Rascals. His sponsor was one of the nation’s largest plant nurseries, Naughton Farms, seven hundred miles south in Waxahachie, Texas. Given that Naughton was a big player in the nursery business, Hank’s shows were almost certainly shipped to many small stations, but only KSIB’s copies survived. Those of us who have studied Hank’s life and career had no idea that these recordings existed.”
Any music from Hank Williams is worth celebrating. Discovering material that has been unheard for generations is monumental.
“It’s incredible to me that we’re still finding new recordings by my dad — great ones at that,” says Jett Williams. “No one even suspected that these recordings existed. We partnered with Omnivore Recordings for this release, and I especially love it that they’re taking my dad back to vinyl.”
