HAMILTON, George IV: My North Country Home
[BCD 17146-CH]
£47.14

3-CD DigiPac with 68-page booklet, 82 tracks, playing time 242:42. -- A 3-CD collection of Canadian-penned material, by the most famous Canadian songwriters - Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Ray Griff, Buffy St. Marie, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Cockburn, Leonard Cohen, Dick Damron, Gene MacLellan, and others. George Hamilton IV recorded 16 Gordon Lightfoot songs - more than any other artist in history. All are found on this collection. Contains all of George Hamilton IV's 'country-folk' era material from 1965-1975, showcasing his fascination for 'Canadiana'. An essential collection for George Hamilton IV fans, and collectors of Canadian country music. -- George Hamilton IV will always be known as the 'International Ambassador Of Country Music.' The perennial Grand Ole Opry star has been in the limelight since his first hit 'A Rose And A Baby Ruth' in 1956. After George's biggest hit, 'Abilene', in 1963, he began recording in a folkier style, what he called 'songs that had story lines, painted pictures and, most importantly, songs that said something.' When he heard Gordon Lightfoot on the radio while touring Canada, he focused his attention on a crop of up-and-coming singer/songwriters from North of the Border. Soon George was recording 'folk-country' songs by Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Ray Griff, Ian Tyson, and many of Canada's brightest young songwriters (many of whom would go on to huge solo careers). George became immensely popular in Canada, and had his own television show broadcast out of Hamilton, Ontario. Between 1965 and 1975, George Hamilton IV recorded six albums of all-Canadian music (some of which were only released in Canada). This collection is the first time that these Canadian songs by Hamilton have ever been compiled, and will excite many of George's fans who have never heard this great material. As George puts it: 'I really do feel like the Canadian songwriters lifted country music out of just the cheating and drinking songs, and caused the music to become more appealing to city kids, and people outside of America'. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Disc: 1 1.
