VARIOUS Songs For Polit. Action 1926-53 10CDs 212p Bk BCD15720JL £195.00

Various Artists Songs For Political Action 10-CD & BOOK/BUCH BEAR FAMILY BOXSET BCD 15720 JL Vielleicht hat sie die soziale und wirtschaftliche Gleichberechtigung nicht rüber gebracht, für die sie kämpfte aber die Amerikanische Linke der 30er und 40er Jahre hinterlieá ein dauerhaftes Erbe: das Revival des städtischen Folk Songs. Die energiegeladene, politisch dreiste Musik der Alamanc Singers und deren Vorgängern, den Zeitgenossen und Nachfolgern klingt bei den heutigen Sänger-Songschreibern immer noch durch. Dieser Set enthält beinahe 300 extrem seltener Aufnahmen auf 10 CDs und umspannt die Jahre von 1926 bis 1953. Die Songs bieten einen verständlichen Überblick dieser zeitlosen Musik, von den Arbeiter Chören und der sozial engagierten Theater Szene des New York der 30er zu den bahnbrechenden und einfluáreichen Aufnahmen der Almanac Singers. Sie setzen sich fort über die Kriegsjahre und den Idealismus der Nachkriegsjahre von Pepople's Songs und endet mit der verwirrenden anti-kommunistischen Hysterie der McCarthy Ära, die viele dieser talentierten, engagierten Künstler zum Schweigen zwang. Dieser Set enthält ein Hardcover Buch, das diese Ära und die Aufnahmen, die sie hervorbrachte, dokumentiert. - Maybe it didn't bring about the social and economic equality that it strove for, but the American Left of the 1930s and 1940s did leave one lasting legacy: the urban folk song revival. The energetic, politically daring music of the Almanac Singers and its predecessors, contemporaries and successors continue to resonate through today's singer-songwriters. Spanning the years 1926 to 1953, this set features nearly 300 extremely rare recordings on 10 compact discs. The songs offer a comprehensive overview of this enduring music, from the labor choruses and New York's socially conscious theatrical scene of the 1930s, to the Almanac Singers' influential, ground-breaking recordings. It continues through the war years and the postwar idealism of People's Songs and ends with the disturbing anti-Communist hysteria of the McCarthy era that silenced many of these talented, dedicated performers. This set includes a hardcover book documenting the era and the recordings it produced. 1. SANDBURG, Carl : The Boll Weevil 2. ALLISON, John : Patriotic Diggers 3.
