Beat and country music? You must be joking? It may seem ridiculous to look for country roots in beat music: The 1960s and everything they stood for appear to be galaxies away from the conservative traditionalism of the country establishment.

In his excellent book ’Say It One Time For The Broken Hearted,’ English music journalist and writer Barney Hoskins traces country music’s contributions to the development of soul music in the early ’60s. So maybe it’s also worth checking out the country in beat music?

This collection offers writers as varied as Charlie Rich, Hank Williams, John D. Loudermilk, Hoagy Carmichael, and Boudleaux Bryant – to name just a few. And the beat bands chose many evergreens and rare gems along the way. You will enjoy classics like You Are My Sunshine, Sixteen Tons, Sea Of Heartbreak, I Walk The Line, Georgia On My Mind, Danny Boy, and – of course – Jambalaya!

Well-known bands like The Merseybeats, The Nashville Teens, The Downliners Sect, The Remo Four, The Searchers, The Hollies, and The Spencer Davis Group rub shoulders with the more obscure formations like Mike Warner and the New Stars, The Incrowd, Sonny Webb and the Cascades, Jerry Williams and the Violents. The beat parade is led by top Bear Family Records® sellers like King Size Taylor, Tony Sheridan, Lee Curtis, and The Lords.

Nico Feuerbach dug deep into his record collection and offers 30 country compositions or songs connected to the country field interpreted by beat bands from The Hague, Holland – Wellington, New Zealand – Liverpool, England – and Bielefeld, Germany (and many more cities in between).

Some songs might not be country songs in a strict sense – some have a folk background, and some have mixed origins – but all are connected to country stars and the genre in general.
