(2005/KENT) 24 tracks - Vietnam through the eyes of black America 1962-1972 (2005/KENT) 24 tracks - Vietnam through the eyes of black America 1962-1972 THE SOUNDTRACK This second volume of Vietnam War-related soul music is presented with an eye to the chronology of the war. Not all of the tracks mention Vietnam by name. but it will fairly obvious to the listener that when, say, Joe Tex sings ´when Johnny comes marching home again. I can´t see you no more´ his hero is not -marching home´ from the nearest Piggly Wiggly, or that when Caldin Gill of the Velvelettes sends her message of fidelity to a lover who´s ´gone to a faraway land´, the lover in question is probably on his way to somewhere that´s a bit more dangerous than Belgium. Even without a direct mention of the ´V´ word, there can be no doubt that Vietnam is at the head of all of the music that this CD contains... ...Well. nearly all of it. anyway. Our opening track actually predates America´s full-on involvement in a war with Vietnam. although the US military was already fully involved in Vietnam´s own civil war when a young Marvin Gaye recorded his ´Soldier´s Plea´ in early 1962. Like other recordings of the period that espoused similar sentiments such as Dee Clark´s ´I´m A Soldier Boy´, ´Soldier´s Plea´ is representative of its era, and of the patriotic stance that records of its kind tended to take in the days before the horrors of war put an altogether different perspective on things. Less than a decade later and based partly on his brother Frankie´s experiences as a serving soldier. Gaye delivered ´What´s Going On´, his long-playing masterwork that succinctly summed up black America´s overall disillusionment with its lot after Jam, message in most of the music was ´I´m proud of you´. rather than the bitterly expressed ´I should be proud´ that is at the heart of Martha Reeves´ stark tale of bad news from the start of the following decade. But in 1965, it was far more common to hear soul records that contained the kind of sentiments expressed in former Pilgrim Traveler. and manager/confidante of the late Sam Cooke. J W Alexander´s ´Keep A Light In The Window Until I Come Home´ than in West Coast bluesman King Solomon´s somewhat more concerned (and decidedly less enthusiastic) `Please Mr President´. If the feelings of those left behind at the time are having lived through half a decade or more of conflict. Like his brothers and sisters. he had come a long way in a short time. By the middle of the decade. and with the conflict well and truly underway, black America´s involvement in the war had increased significantly. thanks to changes in US induction policy that made it virtually impossible for poorly-educated Americans of any colour to avoid call-up With increased participation came increased musical involvement —although at this still-relatively-early stage in the proceedings. the innocently captured by the Velvelettes (´if a pretty girl should pass you by. I won´t mind if you give her the eye...[but] remember that your heart belongs to me´) and also with somewhat more desperation by Stax´s sweet soul trio the Charmers (-please. Uncle Sam, send back my man´), those of the enlisted are fully represented by two men here, who both served in the US military during the 60s. albeit not in Vietnam, and who — although not related — share a surname. William Bell received his ´greetings´ from Uncle Sam in 1964. and recorded his obviously heartfelt ´Soldier´s Goodbye´ around the time of his call-up. A couple of years later Houston-born Archie Bell adapted the Monitors´ 1966 recording of the Valadiers´ 1961 Motown hit ´Greetings This Is Uncle Sam)´ for an even more desperate ´A Soldier´s Prayer 1967´. Happily for both men. their tours of duty did not take them anywhere near the Ho Chi Minh Trail. but the war had a temporarily adverse effect on the chosen career of each. William Bell — Stax´s premier solo male vocalist at the time of his

Long before it was commonplace for Aboriginal dance companies to tour the world or for central desert ´dot paintings´ to sell for astronomical sums, it was country music that first gave Aboriginal people a voice in modern Australia. To some, black skin and country music may seem unlikely bedfellows. But from early stars like Jimmy Little and Herb Laughton through Dougie Young, Lionel Rose, Auriel Andrew and Harry and Wilga Williams to Vic Simms, Bob ´Brown Skin Baby´ Randall, Bobby McLeod, Isaac Yama and Roger Knox, Aboriginal country music is a very real phenomenon, a long and rich traditon that´s still alive today in Troy Cassar-Daley and Archie Roach. Telling black stories in a way white could understand as well, country music was not only a salve for its own dispossessed people, it became common ground, before anything else, in a divided Australia - in other words, grassroots reconciliation. Lavishly illustrated with rare photographs and memorabilia, fully indexed and including a complete discography - and with a video documentary and 2CD soundtrack additionally available - Buried Country describes in highly accessible, evocative terms the emergence of Aboriginal performers on the Australian music scene and the parallel development of a unique black art form.
Cette méthode a pour objectif de vous montrer que l’on peut faire plein de choses à la guitare (acoustique comme électrique)... avec pourtant bien peu de connaissances. Elle s’adresse donc en priorité à ceux qui débutent et souhaitent se faire plaisir sans délai ; mais aussi à tous ceux, plus expérimentés, qui ont parfois l’impression de tourner en rond. Vous constaterez ainsi qu’avec 6 accords vraiment basiques (et pas un de plus !), il est facile de se créer un vrai petit répertoire de 50 chansons archi-connues, parmi les plus grands tubes d’hier et d’aujourd’hui (The Beatles, U2, Coldplay, Bob Marley, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Jason Mraz, Greenday, The Police, etc...). En jouant ces morceaux, écrits en solfège et tablature, avec toutes les indications de coups de médiator, vous découvrirez tout ce qu’il est possible de faire, tant en ce qui concerne l’agencement des accords que le rythme à leur donner... soit beaucoup avec bien peu ! Sur le disque joint à la méthode, vous trouverez aussi bien des fichiers audios que vidéos. Les vidéos (mp4) présentent en images tous les accompagnements tels qu’ils doivent être joués, à vitesse normale puis au ralenti. Les enregistrements audios (mp3), pour leur part, proposent les playbacks correspondants, là encore à deux tempi différents. Vous pourrez donc y jouer à votre tour l’intégralité des exemples proposés... comme si vous étiez au sein d’un vrai groupe.
