Simon & Garfunkel's second album, Sounds of Silence, was recorded 18 months after their debut long-player, Wednesday Morning, 3 AM -- but even though the two albums shared one song (actually, one-and-a-half songs) in common, the sound here seemed a million miles away from the gentle harmonizing and unassuming acoustic accompaniment on the first record. In between, there had been a minor earthquake in the pop/rock world called "folk-rock," which resulted in the transformation of their acoustic rendition of "The Sound of Silence" into a classic of the new genre, complete with jangling electric guitars and an amplified beat that helped carry it to the top of the charts. The duo hastily re-formed, Paul Simon returning from an extended stay in England with a large song bag (part of which he had already committed to vinyl, on his U.K. album The Paul Simon Songbook). Simon & Garfunkel rushed into the studio in the fall of 1965 to come up with a folk-rock album in a hurry: fortunately, they'd already recorded two sides, "Somewhere They Can't Find Me" (actually, Simon's rewrite of their first album‘s title track) and "We've Got a Groovey Thing Goin'," both featuring a band accompaniment. Davy Graham's bluesy "Anji," a rare instrumental outing by Simon, filled another slot, and "Richard Cory" filled another. The latter, Simon's adaptation of poet Edwin Arlington Robinson‘s work, was a sincere effort at relevance -- Richard Cory has every material thing a man could want but still takes his own life, a hint at one aspect of middle-class teenaged angst of the mid-'60s; high school English teachers were still using it to motivate students in the '70s. Though a rushed effort, this was a far stronger album than their debut, mostly thanks to Simon's compositions; indeed, in one fell swoop, the world learned not only of the existence of a superb song-poet in Paul Simon, but, in Simon's harmonizing with Art Garfunkel, the finest singing duo since the Everly Brothers. But it also had flaws, some of which only became fully apparent as their audience matured: the snide, youthful sensibilities of "I Am a Rock" and "Blessed" haven't aged well. And the musical concessions, on those tracks and "Richard Cory," to folk-rock amplification have also worn poorly; even in 1966, the electric guitars, piano, organ, and drums, sounded awkward in context with the duo's singing, like something grafted on, though in fairness, those sounds did sell the album. The parts that work best, "Kathy's Song" and "April Come She Will," two of the most personal songs in Simon's output, were similar to the stripped-down originals Simon had cut solo in England, and among the most affecting (as opposed to affected) folk-style records of their era; similarly, Simon's rendition of the folk-blues instrumental "Anji" is close to composer Davy Graham's original, just recorded hotter, while "Leaves That Are Green" is pleasantly if unobtrusively ornamented with electric harpsichord, rhythm guitar, and bass.

Woodstock feiert Geburtstag

Woodstock war zwar nicht das einzige Festival, das sich der Musik der damaligen Zeit widmete. Newport galt 1969 schon als ein regelmäßiger Treffpunkt für Fans der neuen Rock- und Folkmusik-Szene, die die amerikanische Jugend - und vor allem die jungen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt - begeisterte. Die Festivals in Monterey, Kalifornien und das Isle of Wight in Großbritannien machten in den in den beiden Sommern vor Woodstock von sich reden. Aber das Line-Up, die Menschenmasse und der historische Kontext, in dem das Festival stand, machten es zu einem Mythos.

Outlaw Country: Revolte in Nashville

In den frühen 1970er Jahren brachte eine Gruppe von Abtrünnigen den Country von Nashville, seine Codes, seine Richtlinien, seine reibungslosen Produktionen und Klischees zum stürzen. Angeführt von Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson und einigen anderen langhaarigen Wilden, flöst diese Outlaw-Revolte ein wenig Rock'n'Roll in ein konservatives Genre ein.

Johnny Cash hinter Gittern

Es ist zwei Live-Alben zu verdanken, dass Johnny Cash seine Karriere Ende der 60er Jahre wieder aufleben lässt und zu einem wahren Superstar wird. Zwei Platten, die nicht sind wie die anderen, da sie im Gefängnis aufgenommen wurden. Aber wie hatte es den “Man in Black” in einen derart ungewöhnlichen Konzertsaal verschlagen?
