Slowness: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 206min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Milan Kundera´s lightest novel, a divertimento, an opera buffa, Slowness is also the first of this author´s fictional works to have been written in French. Disconcerted and enchanted, the listener follows the narrator of Slowness through a midsummer´s night in which two tales of seduction, separated by more than 200 years, interweave and oscillate between the sublime and the comic. Underlying this libertine fantasy is a profound meditation on contemporary life: about the secret bond between slowness and memory, about the connection between our era´s desire to forget and the way we have given ourselves over to the demon of speed. And about ´´dancers´´ possessed by the passion to be seen, for whom life is merely a perpetual show emptied of every intimacy and every joy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richmond Hoxie.

zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

1-CD mit 16-seitigem Booklet, 30 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 64 Minuten. Diese exzellente Zusammenstellung liefert in fantastischer Qualität ihre kompletten 26 Aufnahmen für RCA zusammen mit einer Palette-Session von 1960 mit Teen Street und dem Honky-Tonk-Klassiker Cry Guitar . Janis Martin gehörte zu den ganz wenigen Frauen, die in den ´Männerclub namens Rock ´n´ Roll´ eindrangen. Viele Frauen hatten Probleme mit dem rebellischen Charakter des Rock ´n´ Roll – Janis Martin nicht. Und sie hatte gute Voraussetzungen. Sie sang für das bedeutendste Label mit Top-Leuten im Rücken, sie war Gast in ´American Bandstand´, in der ´Tonight Show´, in der ´Grand Ole Opry´ und ´The Ozark Jubilee´. Trotzdem blieben die Hits aus. Ihre erste Platte, Will You, Willyum, kam nicht weiter als in die Rubrik ´starker Aufsteiger´ in den ´Billboard´-Pop-Charts – für gerade mal eine Woche im Mai 1956, und das war´s. Vier Jahre später zog sie sich aus dem Geschäft zurück und hatte keine Ahnung, daß ihre Platten für viel Geld gehandelt wurden und daß sich weltweit die Sammler fragten, was denn bloß aus ihr geworden war. Obwohl sie als Kind acht Jahre in Akron, Ohio, gelebt hat, bezeichnete Janis Martin Matin stets Virginia als ihre Heimat. Sie wurde am 23. März 1940 als Janis Martin Darlene Martin in Sutherlin, Virginia, geboren. Wenn man bedenkt, daß Ringo Starr, der schon für die folgende Generation steht, nur vier Monate später geboren wurde, wird deutlich, wie jung Janis Martin am Beginn ihrer Karriere war. ´´Meine Mutter war so eine richtige Showbusiness-Bühnen-Mama´´, erzählte sie Bob Allen. ´´Mein Vater und mein Onkel waren Amateurmusiker, und ich habe eigentlich immer gespielt oder gesungen.´´ Im Februar 1951 ließ sich der Bluegrass-Star Jim Eanes in der Nähe der Martins nieder, und Janis Martin trat mit ihm in Radioprogrammen auf. Für Auftritte in Bars war sie noch zu jung – also machte sie sich einen Namen als lokale Größe im Vorprogramm bei Konzerten gastierender Top-Künstler. Mit 14 hatte sie es schon in den ´Old Dominion Barndance´ des Senders WRVA in Richmond geschafft, als diese Show zu den bekanntesten im Bereich der Country Music zählte. Als Janis Martin dort 1953 auftrat, stand sie in einem Programm neben Hawkshaw Hawkins, Jean Shepard, den Carter Sisters, Sonny James und Martha Carson. ´´Als ich dort mitmachte, war ich gerade mal ein Teenager´´, erzählte sie Allen, ´´und in jenen Tagen hatte ich keine Lust mehr auf langsame Country-Songs und auf Bluegrass auch nicht. Ich interessierte mich vielmehr für schwarzen Rhythm & Blues und hatte Titel von Ruth Brown und LaVern Baker im Repertoire und auch Songs von Dinah Washington. Das Ganze endete dann damit, daß ich in einer Country-Show Rock´n´ Roll-Musik machte.´´ Zu den Top-Leuten des Senders WRVA gehörte Carl Stutz, der mit seinem ebenso populären Kollegen Carl Barefoot Songs komponierte. 1955 schrieben sie Will You, Willyum. Sie baten Janis Martin , ein Demo davon zu singen, das dann bei Tannen Music in New York landete. Tannen leitete es weiter an Steve Sholes bei RCA. Dort, so berichtete ´Country Song Roundup´, ´´war Steve eigentlich nur am Song und nicht an der Interpretin interessiert, aber Janis´ ungewöhnliche Art der Interpretation blieb bei ihm im Gedächtnis hängen.´´ Schon ein paar Tage später, am 8. März 1956, war Janis Martin Martin in Nashville. Janis Martin nahm Will You, Willyum mit Buck Griffins Let´s Elope Baby, Boudleaux Bryants One More Year To Go und ihrem eigenen Drugstore Rock ´n´ Roll auf. ´´Wegen meiner Shows in Europa habe ich meine Programme immer mit ´Drugstore Rock ´n´ Roll´ eröffnet. Obwohl es nur eine Single-B-Seite war, ging gerade dieser Titel bei den Kids in Europa ab wie eine Rakete. Ich habe die Nummer nur geschrieben, weil immer klarer wurde, daß man als Künstler mehr Erfolg mit eigenen Songs haben würde. Ich brauchte für ´Drugstore Rock ´n´ Roll´ nur rund zehn Minuten. Ich habe darin nur das untergebracht, was wir damals als Teenager erlebten (der Song wurde nur knapp drei Wochen vor Janis´ 16. Geburtstag aufgenommen). Der Drugstore war für uns der einzige Treffpunkt zum Abhängen nach der Schule. Da war die Musicbox, da gab es Soda, wir konnten tanzen, einen Hamburger verdrücken – so lief unser Leben damals ab.´´ Eine unserer ersten CDs - und immer noch eine der besten.

Posadas County, New Mexico, is in the news. NightZone, a mammoth astronomy theme park, is bringing in jobs, media, and such new infrastructure as a slick narrow-gauge railway to transport tourists from the village of Posadas to the tramway running up the mesa to the project´s site. And the Posadas High School girls´ volleyball team is on a hot winning streak, exciting everyone. But more news, not good, breaks. Volleyball coach Clint Scott has been found gunned down in the girls´ shower room, the victim of four bullets, one fired nearly point-blank into his heart. Dead for hours, killed soon after the end of last night´s game. And, last night, a homegrown Banksy had tagged both one of the railway cars and a section of NightZone´s giant radio telescope dish. Then, apparently, this young artist began work on a section of wall outside the girls´ locker room at the high school - a project that was clearly dramatically interrupted. With morning come two strange incidents. Stacie Willis Stewart, a former Posadas volleyball star, locks up her baby and Jack Russell terrier in her Volvo, walks away to local superstore The Spree - and disappears. A former teacher spots the child and dog before the heat can kill them. Deputy Tom Pasquale, in The Spree´s parking lot, where he´s spotted a suspicious Illinois plate on a Ford Fusion, watched it all. He then leads a fruitless search for her inside the store. No luck - but he does score a man with an Elvis haircut and his wife when they return to the Ford with stories that don´t add up. The lead on the murder is Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman, who´s still able to call on the retired former sheriff, Bill Gastner - a good thing, for she is surprised by the arrival of her piano-prodigy son, Francisco, age 15, in a sleek Corvette driven some 1,000 miles by an 18-year-old beauty, a cellist. Their goal: to join the 100th birthday celebration for Estelle´s mother. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beth Richmond.
