Taschenbuch 538 Seiten, Verlag Books on Demand, Sprache: Englisch ISBN-10: 3741248568, 14,8 x 2,8 x 21 cm , Buch Eins von 1000 Seiten Biographie über Bill Haley. Am 12. April 1954 kreierten Bill Haley & His Comets mit ´´Rock Around The Clock´´ die ´´National Anthem Of Teenagers´´ (Dick Clark), den Song, der zur meistverkauften Rock-Single aller Zeiten wurde. Erst am 6. Juli 1954 brachte Elvis Presley seine erste Scheibe - ´´That´s Alright (Mama)´´ - heraus, die in einigen Staaten südlich der Mason-Dixon-Linie ein lokaler Hit wurde. Bill Haley erhielt 1954 seine erste goldene Schallplatte für ´´Shake, Rattle & Roll´´. Bo Diddley war ein Jahr davon entfernt, seinen ersten Treffer zu erzielen. Das Gleiche galt für Chuck Berry. Buddy Holly war sechzehn und spielte mit dem Schulfreund Bob Montgomery Western Bop. Little Richard machte verschiedene Gelegenheitsjobs, während Fats Domino seinen Stil noch nicht auf Rock & Roll umgestellt hatte. Carl Perkins und Jerry Lee Lewis traten immer noch in Honky Tonks auf. 1955 wurde Bill Haleys streng kontrollierter, synkopierter Klangchor, der von einem wilden, primitiven, aber immer donnernden Beat getrieben wird, mit dem Kassenschlager ´´Blackboard Jungle´´ mit Glenn Ford und Sidney Poitier weltweit eingeführt. Der Film war die Zündung für -Rock Around The Clock´´, das zum Synonym für Rock & Roll wurde. Mit einer Verkaufszahl von mehr als 200 000 000 Exemplaren wurde es von mehr als 500 Künstlern in 32 verschiedenen Sprachen aufgenommen. Es wurde auch in vierzig Filmen gezeigt. Es war der Titeltrack zum von George Lucas inszenierten Blockbuster ´´American Graffiti´´. Buch Eins von 1000 Seiten Biographie über Bill Haley.

Taschenbuch 568 Seiten, Verlag Books on Demand, Sprache: Englisch ISBN-10: 3741248746, 14,8 x 2,9 x 21 cm Der Rummel um den angeblichen fünfzigsten Jahrestag von Rock & Roil erwies sich als nicht ganz richtig. Bill Haley hätte für 2001.... fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er Rocket 88´ abgedeckt hatte, oder 2002 ´´, fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er Rock The Joint aufgenommen hatte, oder 2003, fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er mit Crazy Man Crazy in die Pop-Charts eingestiegen war, eine Platte, die allen Kriterien des Rock´n´ Roll entsprach. Aber natürlich sagte Bill Haley kein Wort; er war 1981 vernachlässigt und allein an der mexikanischen Grenze gestorben, und selbst zum Zeitpunkt seines Todes fragte er sich, warum er Geschichte geschrieben hatte. (Colin Escott, Nashville) Buch Zwei einer 1000 Seiten starken Biographie über Bill Haley.

6-CD-Album Box Set (LP-Format) mit 40-seitigem Buch, 158 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer 415:22 Minuten. Die Bill Haley Story endet sicher nicht mit ´Rock Around The Clock´ und auch nicht mit seinem Weggang von Decca 1959. Diese 5 CDs als Album Box Set enthalten seine amerikanischen Aufnahmen von 1960 bis 1969, sie beginnt mit den ausgezeichneten Warner Bros.-Titeln von 1960 und 1961 und endet mit seinen Aufnahmen - nun wieder ein Star des Rock ´n´ Roll Revivals - für Buddah. Dazwischen liegen die Bill Haley Aufnahmen für Gone, Roulette, Guest Star, Nicetown, Apt, United Artists und Kory. Alle diese Aufnahmesessions sind hier komplett auf 5 CDs als Album Box Set veröffentlicht, darunter fast 30 Titel zum ersten Mal. Trotz der vielen Wechsel von Firmen und Begleitmusikern blieb Bill Haley´s Sound immer der der Fünfziger Jahre. Er machte auch wieder Ausflüge zurück zur Country Music, aber egal was er aufnahm, ob Country-Klassiker wie Singing The Blues und Detour oder ein Twist-Album, Bill Haley spielte immer im klassischen unverfälschten Rock ´n´ Roll-Sound. Saxophonist Rudi Pompilii ist natürlich dabei. Die Besetzungen enthalten aber auch die Gitarristen Franny Beecher und Nick Masters, den Steelgitarristen Billy Williamson und den Pianisten Johnny Grande. Diese bisher selten gehörten Aufnahmen sind das Geheimnis der Bill Haley Geschichte, und sie sind eine wichtige Ergänzung zu Bear Familys ´The Decca Years And More´-Box. Wichtig, zeitlos, ein Klassiker!

Paperback - 320 pages - Publisher: Billboard Books - 1994 - English Rock and roll wasn´t supposed to last. From the days in 1953 when Bill Haley and His Comets´ ´´Crazy Man Crazy´´ became the first rock record to enter the Billboard charts, through the arrival of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard later in the decade, the music and its stars were often dismissed as a passing phase, a garish blip on the screen of constantly changing teen tastes. In fact, ten years after rock´s inception, even the biggest stars of the era downplayed their signifi-cance. In 1963, in the first flush of the mania that would be named for them, the Beatles often talked of what they would do ´´when the bubble burst´´: at the time, George Harrison mentioned something about becoming an electrician; Ringo Starr said he dreamed of owning a string of ladies´ hair salons. But the bubble didn´t burst, for the Beatles or for rock and roll. Rock and roll did last. It enters its fifth decade as a multibillion-dollar-a-year industry whose reach extends beyond teenagers to generations who have grown up, and older, with it. Along the way, it has infiltrated the culture of the world. Its songs have provided the soundtracks for political campaigns and social movements, for wars and revolutions. Its heroes have been at the forefront of constantly evolving tastes, mores, trends, and aes-thetics. From Elvis shaking the Eisenhower years from their secure slumber with a wag of his hips; to Bob Dylan galvanizing the civil rights movement of the 1960s with ´´Blowin´ in the Wind´´; to the Beatles changing the look and sound of virtually everything by the sheer power of their presence; to Bob Geldof raising tens of millions of dollars for starving Ethiopians with Band Aid and Live Aid; to the heavy metal of Van Halen, which U.S. military pilots used to pump themselves up for combat in the Gulf War, rock and roll has proved that is has not merely last-ed—it has mattered. That rock has done all this is hardly news. And outlining the role and importance of rock isn´t the purpose of this book. Instead, Pioneers of Rock and Roll is an examination of artists whose music and careers have defined and redefined rock in the course of its history and, in the process, made it a crucial component of the culture of its time. ´´Artists´´ is the key word in all of this and is used intentionally in place of ´´performers,´´ ´´musicians,´´ or ´´acts.´´ Each of the individuals or groups includ-ed in this book has contributed in one or more ways to establishing rock as an art form. While the latter point—rock as art—could still be open to debate in some aesthetic spheres, the case for such status can certainly be made. If art can be defined as a creative expression of a particular time, for all time, then rock is art. It would be impossible, or at least misleading, to discuss or study or evaluate the social history of the West in the second half of this century without factoring in the impact of rock and roll. The point of all this as it pertains to this book is that if rock and roll had simply been a commercial device to separate teens (or their parents) from their money, or just another form of entertainment, it would never have lasted. It has lasted because, in its highest forms—in the music of people who are included in this book—it is more than those other aspects. It is art. And this book is about how they have made it thus. On to practical matters. The artist entries have several components. Each includes an analysis of music and impact of the indi-vidual artist or group that explains why and how they became ´´pioneers.´´ And each includes a discus-sion of the artist´s career, providing pertinent dates and facts to place the analysis in a historical context.

Haley has always admired her strong-willed great-grandmother Grisa. The woman survived the disappearance of her husband and thrived after her immigration to America at the beginning of World War II. But when a shocking telephone call from a detective in Germany turns Haley’s life upside down in an instant, she finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about her heritage. The body of Ulrich Krauss has been found, and the renowned toymaker and artist has a shocking connection to Haley: He is her great-grandfather - not missing, but murdered. Now, at the request of her ailing great-grandmother, Haley travels to Germany to seek answers. What she finds instead are more questions and a growing sense of danger dogging her every step. Protection appears in the form of Joshua, an attractive man from Haley’s past who is in Germany on business. Together the pair embarks on an emotional quest for the truth, only to discover that a generations-old plot is very much alive, and there are those as determined as ever to keep the facts surrounding Ulrich’s death hidden - even if it means silencing his great-granddaughter for good. 1.

English, Paperback, 21.5x28 cm, 288 pages/Seiten, completely illustr. with hundreds of rare b/w photos, labelshots and article repros; The American rockabilly movement of the mid-1950s captured the imagination and spirit of young people everywhere. The magical blend of country music and the blues-these divergent sounds merged to create rock ´n´ roll-is personified by such vocalists as Carl Perkins, Bill Haley, Gene Vincent, and, of course, Elvis Presley. But Presley soon took other musical paths, and rockabilly sound ultimately faded. In this detailed book, author Randy McNutt de- scribes the music and artists, gives the secrets by behind the songs and tells us how the early rockabilly records were made. Through oral histories and narrative pieces, the author looks closely at why the music was suddenly popular. At the time, the music was only a feel- ing, a seed of youthful rebellion and expression that would not spawn its own poets until late. So this book is a tribute to the rockabillies themselves, known and unknown. May their music lives forever.
