Last refresh Jan/06/2019 12:33 AM
First installment in this series, a collection of black approaches to Country music. It not only wants to reveal long forgotten treasures of music history, and shed light on the often neglected Country roots of Soul stars, but put Afro-American Country musicians into a context beyond their genre. Not only do black Americans make up for a considerable share of Country's audience, they have also contributed - a fact very often overlooked by the media - a great deal to the heritage of Country music as songwriters, producers, and singers, who worked against the white clich‚ of their favorite genre. From afar, it might seem that the Afro-American presence in Country music started and ended with Charly Pride. But whoever takes a closer look at the relationship between black artists and Country music will soon discover a the story of a great love, sorely tried and often denied. 24 tracks including cuts from Ella Washington, Joe Simon, Candy Staton, Betty Lavette, Arthur Alexander and many others. Trikont.
