Blue Collar Cowboy MP3
Then there are the shows that are about life - Life with Luigi, about a gentle Italian immigrant, Life with Riley, about an aircraft plant blue-collar worker, his family and their neighbors, and Life with the Lyons, with a real life family playing themselves on the air. Life is often good when you're at Duffy's Tavern, a place in New York where guest stars are always dropping by for a drink.
The cultural changes which affected all forms of popular music in the mid-1950s, inevitably influenced the course of country music which rapidly moved away from the cotton patch ?îhillbilly' sounds of the late 40s and early 50s towards more sophisticated productions, reflecting the tastes, desires, sorrows and ambitions of blue collar folk living in town and country. Unlike modern country stars who are subject to the same principles of rapid turnover as their pop counterparts, the country stars of yesteryear were renowned for the longevity of their careers. Once established, they seemed immune to the fickle whims of time and fashion and were guaranteed a following for life, even though some were relatively mature men and women to begin with. Years were lopped off birth dates-.-toupees were de rigueur for the follically challenged male artists and booze, adultery, hypocrisy, suffering and greed marked the patterns of their lives as readily as it informed the songs they sang. It was these human frailties that endeared them to their fans and in their day they brought pleasure to millions. Tracks featured include standards such as He'll Have To Go, Oh Lonesome Me, Ring Of Fire, Walk On By and King Of The Road, cult classics, such as Flowers On The Wall, Don't Let Me Cross Over, and Six Days On The Road, and influential trailblazers like Ray Price's Crazy Arms and Detroit City by Bobby Bare. These mega-hits, and others like them, provided now-household names like Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline with a springboard to enduring stardom. In common with all GAARR packages, this Special Country Edition comes with a lavishly illustrated 24-page booklet with detailed annotation by Rob Finnis. It's a beauty. Aside from thousands of regular "Golden Age" fans, this Special Edition is sure to appeal to many of you out there who want just one discerning selection of Country classics in their collections, as well as country diehards who will welcome an opportunity to acquire 30 of their favourite records - beautifully sequenced and mastered - in the same place, at the same time!

Bill Homans, a.k.a 'Watermelon Slim' has a storied past from which hedraws experience and fodder for the eighteen tracks on his latest release Up Close and Personal on Southern Records.Watermelon Slim first appeared on the music scene in the early 1970s as the only Vietnam veteran to record a fulllength LP album during the Vietnam war, a 1973 protest-tinged "underground" release entitled Merry Airbrakes. In the subsequentyears his original material has been reissued and performed by anti-establishment icons such as Country Joe McDonald.He developed friendships and musical bonds with Barbara Dane, roommate Henry 'Sunflower' Vestine of Canned Heat,and his dear fishing buddy, seminal Chicago blues harp plyer 'Earring George' Mayweather. In his 30 years of musiche has played with Vestine, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Cray, the late John Lee Hooker, in Paris with expatriate New Orleansbarrel-house piano player Champion Jack Dupree, Boston's leading blues guitarist and producer Chris Stovall Brown,and most recently with Muddy Waters' guitarist 'Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin. But not until recently did he fullychase the dream.
Less than six months after leaving his most latest truckdriviing job,hauling industrial waste, Slim is now making a living as a full time touring bluesman. The decision was predominantlythe result of a recent and nearly fatal heart attack, and the renewed perspective on mortality that followed. Logically,why drive industrial waste around Oklahoma to dispose of when one can drive bandmates around the United Statesto play music and entertain? Pleasingly, the blues community has officially recognized him as one of the best contemporaryblues artists with a nomination for a 2005 W.C. Handy Award for Best New Artist Debut.
One would think that the experiences and tribulations of heart attacks,relationships, and decades behind the wheel would be sufficient foundations for his blues and roots songwriting.Not quite. Over the years Slim has satisfied his thirst for academic knowledge. In 1986 he earned an honors degreein History and a degree in Journalism from the University of Oregon in Eugene. In 2000 Slim received a mastersdegree in History from Oklahoma State University. Outside the classroom Slim was a member of MENSA International,an exclusive society limited to those with genius range IQs. There is no bravado in his voice when he states "Iam probably the most literate bluesman in the world - or no less than Taj Mahal anyway.
"However," he cautions, "the further through things Ithink, the more it ends up being the blues. 'Who increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow', the scripture reads,though I can't quote you the chapter and verse. It's enough to make a saint cuss, enough to make a strong man cry."
Despite - or perhaps because of - the aforementioned educational pursuitsSlim has always lived the life of a bluesman. "Through all my life, then and now, I have been a blue-collarlaborer and trucker, which has much more to do with my blues than all my intellectual activities," he says.
"There are three themes in the blues I usually sing: work, frustratedexpectations (in relationships, of course, but not limited to them), and consciousness of personal mortality. I'mgonna die. I have a trucker's face and hands; I am the trucker's face and hands. I may yet die a trucker."
He continues, "I sing what I have lived, in the blues. You mightsay I am a musical journalist in the same way that the late Mississippi bluesman Robert Pete Williams was. Now,I write and perform an array of Americana and American roots music and just like the blues, that's part of my NorthCarolina roots. But when I'm doing any kind of music, although I remain completely individualistic, I considermy audience, and I suspect that you will say that that material is a bit more universally accessible. Mom and girlsand trucks and trains and booze.
"Now, that's all in the blues too, of course. But I'm an old mannow, and when I really just surrender to reality, the only thing left to me is to write about it and sing it, andthe blues it lays on me comes out of my mouth and fingers. And the more bitter the reality, the more like brokenglass my guitar playing gets."
In May 2004 Slim toured through the United Kingdom, impressing festivaland club audiences with his musicianship. On tour, he paid homage to a great personal influence, the English evolutionaryexistentialist philosopher Colin Wilson, and shared his enthusiasm and knowledge of Shakespearean and Elizabethan/Jacobeandrama from the stages of the UK blues venues and festivals. The English blues world is awaiting his second tour,from May 10 to May 30 this year.
