This Is It!

In 1981, we at Bear Family issued our first Johnny Horton LP. It set us upon a journey that ends here with the absolutely guaranteed definitive Johnny Horton set. This is the set that an artist of Johnny Horton's stature deserves, and a set that was unimaginable in 1981. Some know Horton for his rockabilly records like Honky Tonk Man, One Woman Man, Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor, Wild One, etc. Some know him for his saga songs like North To Alaska and of course Battle Of New Orleans. They're all here, of course, but there's so much more.

All of Horton's early recordings are here, including his first single from 1950 … a single so rare that only one copy is known to exist. We didn't even know about it until a couple of years back. Then there are the Cormac, Abbott, Mercury, SESAC, and Columbia recordings, all restored to pristine sound quality. The Abbott overdubs have been included as well as all of Horton's known demo recordings. Horton was a songwriter for American Music, and we've gathered all the songwriting demos for American with many others that have recently come to light.

Then there are the books: two 288-page hardcover books. The first is a biography by Colin Escott that represents a considerable update of the 1990 book that accompanied our first Johnny Horton boxes. Hundreds of new photos have come to light, too, and we've included those. The second book is an incredible rarity. In the months after Horton's tragic death, his mother wrote a memoir of him in longhand. It's not a sophisticated work, but it's touching and full of so much details that we never knew. In his mother's words, Horton lives again for us.

That's why we say, This Is It!

Johnny Horton, auch als ,The Singing Fisherman“ bekannt geworden, wuchs in Tyler - Texas auf. Er arbeitete einige Zeit in der Fischindustrie in Alaska und Kalifornien, wurde Mitte der 50er Jahre Mitglied der Louisiana Hayride Show in Shreveport und hatte 1956 seinen ersten Hit. Mit seinem zweiten No. 1 Hit „The Battle Of New Orleans“ erregte Johnny Horton 1959 auch Aufsehen bei den Pop Musik Fans und schaffte damit einen Million Seller. Ein Jahr später, 1960, kam Johnny Horton bei einem Autounfall ums Leben. Er war verheiratet mit Billie Jean Williams, geb. Jones, der Witwe von Hank Williams.

Johnny Horton

There's no telling how far Johnny Horton would have gone or how he'd be thought about today had he not died in the small hours of November 5, 1960. That fatal car wreck ensured he'd be remembered as so many whose lives are cut short in their prime... young, vital and brimming with talent. In ten years he'd gone from talent show contestant to country and pop singing star, recording a wide range of material that rode the crests of a rapidly changing music scene. From the strong Western influence of the early Abbott sides recorded in 1950 and 1951 in Los Angeles to post-Hank Williams Nashville at Mercury through the mid-1950s and finally with Columbia Records beginning in 1956... Johnny Horton recorded everything from barroom weepers and straight country to rockabilly and bona fide pop hits.

Horton covered that much musical geography because he could, he was a damn good singer... a GREAT singer. His voice was big, infectious and friendly, bursting with charisma and personality. While he is much admired for the rocking up-tempo tunes and the mega hit Battle Of New Orleans, Johnny Horton is less remembered as the great ballad singer he was. Record companies leaned toward tempo for the A-side of singles to attract air play. Very often the flip side of the record was where the heart felt ballad was hiding or maybe a few would turn up tucked into a long playing album. It's these overlooked treasures that make up this set and, with the exception of When It's Springtime In Alaska, none were released as A-sides while Meant So Little To You from 1954 remained unissued for 37 years.

I was in London working on a recording project when I received a note from Richard Weize asking if I would assemble this CD of Johnny Horton ballads. I was immediately taken back to 1956 when as a youngster I first became aware of a song on the radio called I'm A One Woman Man. I was pulled into that record, the sound, the drive, the click-clock of Bill Black's string bass. Mostly though, I was drawn to the fellows voice who was singing it. From that day forward I always sought out Johnny Horton's records and later when my contemporaries scrambled to be the first to have the latest Beatles or Rolling Stones release, I delighted in the great and grand luck of finding a Horton single on Mercury in a dime store close-out bin for nine cents! Those were touchstone records for me then as they are now.

In so many ways his music and those recordings have informed my life as a professional musician having gone from country to styles far a-field and occasionally back again.

In compiling this collection I have chosen ballads that span Horton's entire career and those that I like as songs. He sang so well that he could sell nearly anything... well almost. A few songs just don't hold up for me and I've omitted those. I'm sorry if they happen to be your favourites, but it's simply one reporter's opinion. Thought has been put into the sequencing of this set... how it runs musically and the mix of styles through the years. Included are a few tunes that might have questionable pedigrees as ballads. Today a ballad is generally accepted to be any slow piece of music, but I've always felt a ballad to be a song that tells a story regardless of tempo. Also, ballads of the 1950s were often recorded at a brisker tempo than their modern equivalents. With that in mind, I have taken some liberty.

Johnny Horton was at the top of his game with North To Alaska playing on every pop and country radio station that autumn of 1960 when he died. I speculate he would have had a long and productive career ahead of him, all the while adapting as he did so well to musical trends that lay ahead. Some of his later recordings already foreshadowed the coming of strings and voices. He negotiated that countrypolitan approach beautifully and would have been very much at home with 60's style Nashville and beyond with it's increasing emphasis on ballads. For Johnny Horton there would have been many more ballads.

Besser ist nicht möglich!

R & R Musikmagazin 2/2015 "Wieder einmal ein gigantisches Werk, die Musik im umwerfender Qualität, viele nie gehörte Aufnahmen und zwei Bücher, die keine Wünsche offen lassen. Besser ist nicht möglich!"

Fantastisch !

Ein absolutes Meisterwerk von Bear Family, auch was die Begleitbücher betrifft.
Selbst für einen aktiven Sammler wäre es unmöglich gewesen, an diese vielen seltenen Aufnahmen zu gelangen, da diese nur als Unikate vorhanden sind. Deswegen kann man Jerry Hope, der sein Archiv für das Johnny Horton Projekt geöffnet hatte, gar nicht oft genug danken.
Danke Jerry und Danke Bear Family, für diese wundervolle Box.

ABSOLUT TOP!!!

hier hat sie Bear Family mal wieder ein Denkmal gesetzt - die Box ist TOP und ein absolutes MUSS für Johnny Horton Fans ... das Einzige was ich vermisse sind die Live-Aufnahmen ... wäre super, wenn hier das auch noch mal als Komplett-Werk zusammengestellt werden könnte - ich wäre sicher der erste, der das kaufen würde ...

Danke an Bear-Family und alle Mitarbeitern - ihr leistet fantastische Arbeit - wenn's nach mir gehen würde, müsstet ihr den Grammy eher gestern als heute überreicht bekommen !!!

...

Ich bin begeistert von der Box ... erstklassige Arbeit ... leider vermisse ich die Live-Aufnahmen - diese hätten der Box noch die Krone aufgesetzt ... ich kann diesesn Gesamtwerk nur jedem Horton-Fan ans Herz legen ...
