VARIOUS Songs of the Depression 4CDs 160p Bk 16029DK £90.00

BCD 16029 DK ISBN NUMMER: 3-924787-19-0 EAN-Code: 4000127160294 To paraphrase Charles Dickens, it was the worst of times; it was the best of times. The twelve year period from October 1929 to December 1941 stretched the fabric of American society to its limit. Only the policies of the New Deal - born more of desperation than conviction - prevented to the country from toppling into anarchy and totalitarianism. And yet, amid the misery and deprivation, something wonderful happened, like a garden blooming on a stretch of wasteland. While the economy of the country withered, creativity soared and the arts in America came of age. Never, before or since, was there such an explosion of talent in the theatre, motion pictures and popular music.'Songs Of The Depression: Boom, Bust And The New Deal' examines the effects of the Crash through the medium of the popular song. Starting with the insanity of the stock market boom in the late 1920s, it tracks the muddle-headed and often absurd false-optimisim policies of the government in the early months of the crisis, through the grim realization of the people that government had failed them, to the exaggerated euphoria and youthful irreverence of the New Deal era.Um mit Charles Dickens zu sprechen: ''Es war die schlimmste Zeit; es war die beste Zeit.'' In den zwoelf Jahren von Oktober 1929 bis Dezember 1941 wurde das Gefuege der amerikanischen Gesellschaft bis aufs Aeusserste belastet. Nur die Massnahmen des 'New Deal'- der mehr aus Verzweiflung als aus Ueberzeugung ersonnen wurde - bewahrten das Land vor Anarchie und einem totalitaeren Regime. Und doch entstand, wie eine Oase in der Wueste, inmitten all des Elends und der Entbehrungen etwas Wundervolles. Waehrend die Wirtschaft des Landes am Boden lag, setzte die Kreativitaet zum Hoehenflug an, und die Kunstszene in Amerika reifte. Niemals zuvor, und auch danach nicht wieder, war im Theater, dem Kino und der populaeren Musik eine derart ueberwaeltigende Schaffenskraft spuerbar.'Songs Of The Depression: Boom: Bust And The New Deal' wirft ein Licht auf die Auswirkungen der Wirtschaftskrise auf das Medium des populaeren Liedes. Es beginnt mit dem wahnwitzigen Hoehenflug der Boerse in den spaeten Zwanziger Jahren, reicht von den nebuloesen, oftmals an Absurditaet grenzenden und von falschem Optimismus geleiteten Massnahmen der Regierung in den ersten Monaten der Krise, ueber die duestere Erkenntnis der Menschen, dass sie von ihrer Regierung im Stich gelassen worden waren, bis hin zu der uebertriebenen Euphorie und jugendlichen Unverfrorenheit in der Phase des 'New Deals'.
