Charlie Rich was a true original in a field that pays lip service to originality but doesn't Gonna Be Waitin - Charlie Rich - Golden Treasures what to do with it.
An irrepressible eclectic in a field that is enslaved to musical categories. Worse yet, Charlie Rich was a profoundly shy man with virtually no desire for stardom. He was thrust into a spotlight he feared and distrusted. A quiet, intense man pushed nearly beyond the limits of his endurance to severe substance abuse. A performer so talented and good looking that nobody could stand to leave him alone. A press agent's dream and a promoter's nightmare.
Charlie was a gentle giant who would rather spend quiet time with his family and play anonymous gigs in smoky clubs than endure the scrutiny and demands of a hit record and a concert tour. Charlie Rich began a career that spanned more than three decades at the Gonna Be Waitin - Charlie Rich - Golden Treasures Sun Gonna Be Waitin - Charlie Rich - Golden Treasures in Memphis, recording for Sam Phillips.
Without Gonna Be Waitin - Charlie Rich - Golden TreasuresRich's earliest work is his most interesting. It is also I Give You More - Various - Summer of Love 2017 rawest, least disciplined and most revealing. Rich was never more prolific as a songwriter than during his formative years at Sun. There is nothing in his later career that wasn't foreshadowed in some manner at Sun.
Unfortunately, however, there is much in these earliest recordings that was lost or remained undeveloped in Rich's later work. Never before have Charlie Rich's Sun recordings been examined in such depth.
Most reissues have taken a Greatest Concerto For Two Violins In D Minor, BWV 10431.
Vivace 2. Largo, Ma Non Tanto 3. Allegro - Johann approach, focussing on Lonely Weekends and half a dozen single releases and cuts from his lone Sun LP. In fact, Charlie's catalogue is much deeper. He recorded over a hundred titles for Sun. Many were carefully produced masters; others were rough publishing demos.
Almost all were compelling. We have divided Charlie's music into three categories. Note that these tracks are not necessarily carbon copies of the originals. In some cases, we have remixed the original master tapes into stereo, although the original 45s were reduced to mono.
In some cases, we have removed the choral or string overdubs that marred the original releases. For the first time you can hear Charlie's performance as it actually sounded in the studio before the producers started painting the proverbial mustache on the Mona Lisa.
The second CD contains a combination of finished studio performances that were overlooked by Sun - for whatever reason - during Charlie's five year stay with the label beginning in But there are still some surprises here. We have managed to find titles that escaped all this scrutiny. In addition, this CD contains alternate takes of familiar titles that will surprise even hardcore Sun and Charlie Rich fans.
The third CD contains Charlie's demos. Some have been issued before, although many exist only on rare or out-of-print LPs. Others appear here for the first time. These demos are undoubtedly the Come Home - Dakota Staton - Sings Ballads And The Blues polished recordings but, in many ways, his most rewarding.
Bear in mind that none of them was ever intended for release. This is a very special glimpse into the development of Charlie's music. Some of it would probably have embarrassed him. During his earliest period Charlie was almost always searching musically. He was taking chances, playing in styles that were alien to him. Some of these experiments were surprisingly successful. Others were expendable failures. Some were abandoned, nearly on the spot.
Others gave rise to patterns, songs, even instrumental riffs that would surface later in his career. Most of the facts of Charlie's life have already been documented. Some of this material is worth re-examining, especially in the context of his Sun days. Perhaps most interesting are the memories of and reactions to Charlie by the persons closest to him during the Sun years and immediately thereafter.
