Singing In The Saddle

Book by Douglas B. Green, Singing In The Saddle Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Singing In The Saddle books, As the United States expanded west in the 1800s, and cattle became big business, the figure of the young brash cattleman who rode with the herds quickly emerged as a cultural icon. Victorian Americans went crazy for cowboys, snapping up dime-store novels and sheet music, and turning out in droves for Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. It was only a matter of time before someone brought together these three facets-entertainer, singer, and cowboy. And when Carl T. Sprague recorded the first hit cowboy record ("When the Work's All Done This Fall") in 1925, the singing cowboy as we know him was born. A singing cowboy himself, Douglas B. Green (better known as Ranger Doug from the Grammy-award-winning group Riders In The Sky) is uniquely suited to write the story of the singing cowboy. He has been collecting information and interviews on western music, films, and performers for nearly thirty years. In this volume, he traces this history from the early days of vaudeville and radio, through the heyday of movie westerns before World War II, to the current revival. He provides rich and careful analysis of the studio system that made men such as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers famous, and he documents the role that country music and regional television stations played in carrying on the singing cowboy tradition after World War II. This book, lavishly illustrated with over 140 photos, is a wealth of information that comes out of decades of research. Green has unearthed never-before-published photos and rare movie posters-including one from an all-Black western, Harlem on the Prairie (1938). Through his close friendships with other singing cowboys and their families, Green is able to provide rare insights into the ways that some like Autry became stars and others like Raoul Walsh (who lost his eye in a shooting accident and later became a famous director) did not. Green also traces the history of cowboy music, from popular songs such as "Sweet Betsy from Pike" to the instantly recognizable harmonies of the Sons of the Pioneers. Green even speculates about just when the famous yodel became a ubiquitous part of the singing cowboy's repertoire. More important, Green reveals how the imagery of the singing cowboy has become such a potent force that even now country musicians don cowboy hats so as to symbolically take part in the legend. Nowhere has the recorded history of the singing cowboy and the film history been collected in one volume, and this book is sure to become the resource for students of the style.

Music In The Western

Book by Kathryn Kalinak, Music In The Western Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Music In The Western books, Music in the Western: Notes from the Frontier presents essays from both film studies scholars and musicologists on core issues in western film scores: their history, their generic conventions, their operation as part of a narrative system, their functioning within individual filmic texts and their ideological import, especially in terms of the western’s construction of gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity. The Hollywood western is marked as uniquely American by its geographic setting, prototypical male protagonist and core American values. Music in the Western examines these conventions and the scores that have shaped them. But the western also had a resounding international impact, from Europe to Asia, and this volume distinguishes itself by its careful consideration of music in non-Hollywood westerns, such as Ravenous and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and in the “easterns” which influenced them, such as Yojimbo. Other films discussed include Wagon Master, High Noon, Calamity Jane, The Big Country, The Unforgiven, Dead Man, Wild Bill, There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men. Contributors Ross Care Corey K. Creekmur Yuna de Lannoy K. J.

Singing In Zion

Book by Robert Cochran, Singing In Zion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Singing In Zion books, This book is a lyrical, scholarly exploration of the connection between one family's musical traditions and its rural community of Zion, Arkansas. In 1959, three Gilbert sisters--Alma, Helen, and Phydella--began compiling songs they remembered as their own and sending them to one another in letters. Their tendency to center memory in sound rather than sight reveals an unusual musical birthright. Robert Cochran has constructed a composite portrait of this family for whom music is the center of life. He examines their lived experience as they anchor their history through song, singing, and the playing of musical instruments. The Gilberts are wonderful exemplars of the "mediation of oral tradition," and when approached through their music, they reveal themselves as remarkable individuals with an elaborate and firmly held sense of their unique identities. A decade in the making, Singing in Zion is written with a memoirist's sense of family history and an ethnographer's sense of the rich encounter of worlds. This narrative has a seductive simplicity that conveys much of the Gilbert family's charm while at the same time establishing a broader framework that is firmly academic. It will be enjoyed by all readers.

Meeting Jimmie Rodgers

Book by Barry Mazor, Meeting Jimmie Rodgers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Meeting Jimmie Rodgers books, "Up from the roots" musical heroes regularly emerge in America, seemingly showing up from nowhere with the power not just to speak to us, but to represent us. Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash were all like that. But before them, influencing all three and myriad performers incountry music, rock and roll, blues, bluegrass, commercial folk, Western Swing, cowboy crooning, and pop, was America's original popular roots music hero, Jazz Age vaudevillian and recording star Jimmie Rodgers. This book is the first to look at Rodgers' deep, under-explored musical legacy from a21st Century perspective.An anchor in the Country Music, Rock and Roll and American Songwriters' Halls of Fame, Rodgers has been promulgated as the songwriting "Singing Brakeman," "The Father of Country Music," and the rough and rowdy king of white man's blues, his image becoming so multiplex over time that the artisthimself becomes vague. His immense but diffused musical contribution, it's said, is just "out there in our musical DNA", and Meeting Jimmie Rodgers traces all of the fascinating mutations and adaptations throughout the history of American popular music.Through carefully researched accounts, first-hand interviews and musical examinations, author Barry Mazor tracks, colorfully and conversationally, the remarkably varied places the man's music has gone, how it got there, and how our sense of its has been altered by re-interpreters who've grabbedhold of it along the way, including potent performers from Ernest Tubb to Lead Belly, Bob Wills, Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Doc Watson, Bob Dylan and Lynyrd Skynyrd. In reconstructing Rodgers' singular, far-flung legacy, Mazor clears the way forreaders to experience the music for themselves again directly - meeting Jimmie Rodgers and his music not as some "weird artifact" from a remote era , but as a potent, immediate force.
