omschrijving

  • = WHERE COUNTRY MEETS SOUL VOLUME 2 =

Coming from a family of record collectors with catholic tastes, I was hearing country music even before I was old enough to know what it was. Of course it was called hillbilly music when I was a kid, but country was what it was and still is. In our house you were just as likely to hear Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Tennessee Ernie Ford and Webb Pierce as you were Little Richard, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry (and believe me, you heard ’em all on a very regular basis Chez Rounce). 

I was not the only one to hear country music while growing up. Most of the performers on the second volume in our “Where Country Meets Soul” series – particularly those who grew up in the American south – would have heard even more of it than I did. When the time came to pursue their recording careers, it was no surprise that many of them chose, at some point, to reinterpret country songs they’d grown up hearing. Their passionate renditions of classics of that genre show how thin the line is that separates the two most significant genres in American popular music – soul and country. 

“Sweet Dreams” carries on from where its predecessor “Behind Closed Doors” left off by presenting 23 more sublime interpretations of great country songs. A Who’s Who of songwriters is represented, among them Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Don Gibson and Dan Penn. The cast of performers is no less stellar – who wouldn’t want to buy a CD that includes top-drawer performances from such iconic artists as Otis Redding, William Bell, Bettye Swann, Esther Phillips and Bobby Bland, to name but a few. 

The collection is rich in highlights. My personal favourites include Sweet Pea Atkinson’s intense 1997 recording of the Hank Williams obscurity ‘Forever’s A Long, Long Time’ (a song never recorded by Hank himself) and, from over three decades earlier. William Bell’s quietly dignified take on Hank Locklin’s 1960 smash ‘Please Help Me, I’m Falling’. Soul ladies are elegantly represented by Dorothy Moore’s definitive reading of ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’ and Millie Jackson’s equally definitive version of Kenny Rogers’ ‘Sweet Music Man’, not to mention the Sweet Inspirations’ masterful take on another Rogers hit, ‘But You Know I Love You’. The selections have been chosen to represent all facets of country and soul – and, of course, country soul! I have no doubt that if you liked our previous volume (and several thousand people did like it enough to buy it) you will love this one just as much. 

As with “Behind Closed Doors”, full details of the original versions of these songs are displayed in the track-by-track annotations. I would personally urge anyone who likes these renditions to check out the originals, too. It’s never too late to become a country music fan – in fact, your appreciation of the recordings that make up “Sweet Dreams” probably proves that you’re one already. (tekst:acerecords.co.uk)
