Hallo Forum!
Die LONDON-Single "White Silver Sands" von Don Rondo war bei uns seinerzeit eher unbekannt aber eine "rote" SONET-Single die aus zwei ROULETTE-Singles zusammengestellt wurde, war einer unserer "Exoten". Wie ich später versucht habe diese Single zu erwerben hatte ich wenig Glück. Ich war froh als ich die zwei ROULETTE-Singles fand. Zur Beruhigung sagte ich mir, jetzt habe ich um zwei Titel mehr. Aber wie das so ist, als ich die US-Pressungen bereits einige Zeit besaß tauchte plötzlich die gesuchte SONET auf. Wegen der Erinnerungen nahm ich sie dann trotzdem. Das war der "Small Talk" und jetzt spricht Don Rondo hinsichtlich JUBILEE einmal kanadisch, einmal deutsch und einmal englisch. ROULETTE ist wie im "Small Talk" geschildert vertreten. Bis 1962 gab es aber auch noch DECCA und CARLTON-Aufnahmen von ihm

Hallo,

Silvester gekauft und am Neujahrstag vorgestellt:

die amerikanische Original-Single von "White Silver Sands" - eine wirklich schöne Country-Pop-Nummer mit Rockabilly-Einschlag, die auch meine Teenage-Tochter begeistert!

"White Silver Sands" / "Stars Fell On Alabama" (Jubilee 45-5288, 1957)

Auch die B-Seite ist nicht zu verachten!

MfG, Volker

Hallo Gerd,
ein wunderbarer Beitrag.

Hier etwas zum erst genannten Titel:

Beim Titel “Two Different Worlds“ stand die Fassung von Roger Williams in Konkurrenz zum Original von Don Rondo (Jubilee) auf # 11 Billboard und # 12 Casbox und einer weiteren Cover-Version von Dick Haymes (Capitol) auf # 80.

Von Ronnie Hilton (GB-1956), Jane Morgan (1956), Jerry Vale (1963) und Englebert Humperdinck (1967) sind Vocal-Versionen bekannt.

Gruß
Dietrich

Leider in englisch aus dem Netz:

The first audience Don Rondo ever sang for, was three hundred Holstein cows and two feed men, who were members of the Ware, Massachusetts, Lions Club.
It was one week before Christmas and Don Rondo was feeding the cattle on his Dad's farm, which was a dairy farm in Palmer, Massachusetts. While he was doing his chores, he stopped for a few minutes, and using a pitchfork for a mike he started to sing "White Christmas".

While he was singing the two salesmen heard him and entered his name in their Lions Club talent show. This was Don's first public appearance.
One of the many and funny things in Don's life was; after working a full day on the huge farm (1800 acres), he would saddle his horse, ride to the river, tie his horse to a tree, then row across to the airfield to take off for a little practice flying, Don tells the story of, once in the air, he thought of himself as a great fighter pilot and he would fly over the farm real low where the cattle would be grazing, pretending they were the enemy. Cattle by nature, being frightened by aircraft, would scatter in many directions. The second time it happened his Dad got the number of the plane and called the airport, only to find that it was his own son. That was the end of Don's flying career.
After singing around for more years than Don would like to recall, and then going to New York City every Monday to see and watch the big names at the Paramount Theater, he auditioned for Jubilee Records. They said, "we will record you on Wednesday", but, this was a big "but", "you will have to pay for the session”. As though he were a millionaire, Don, without batting an eye asked, “how much"?, they said "$2,000.00". Don said, “You’ve got a date". He borrowed the money from his brother-in-law, who was a plumber, whom Don also worked for after he was married to a beautiful girl, named Ida Mae. With his newly acquired fame and wealth, Don bought a farm of his own in Bethel, Connecticut, where he bred Black Angus cattle. His farm was a little far from New York City he admits, but for Ron, Deb and Gary, his three children, it was a great life and the only way to bring up kids.
Don was born in Ware, MA. Don's hobbies were probably the most unglamorous that a personality could have. He loved to play football with his kids, including Debbie, and ride his horses with his friends and wife. Don also liked to watch football games. He played High School and Semi-Pro ball for four years. He was always in great shape, and upon being introduced to Sonny Werblin (owner of the New York Jets football team) at the Kentucky Derby he asked Don, "How would you like to play for us"? Don stood 6’3" and weighed a solid 224 lbs at the time. Don said, while he and Werblin were discussing money and terms, they missed the feature race, which he feels was a blessing. The horse they were to bet on came in last. "So even though we were not able to come to terms ," Don said laughingly, "We were both winners."

After retiring from live music in the 1960's, Don enjoyed a second career singing advertising jingles for companies like Stroh's Beer, Firestone Tires, GMC trucks, Chevy, Firebird Oil, Detroit Tigers, Burger Beer, and The Hymn Of The National Guard. In the 1970's Don retired completely from music and moved to New Hampshire where he opened and ran a successful small business and invested in real estate. Don became very vocal about local politics and soon a New Hampshire TV station hired him to moderate a local political talk show where Don's no-holds-barred, outspoken views generated a lot of buzz, earning him a lot of new fans and even a few detractors. His local TV career soon led to a year-long stint on radio, again moderating a politically charged talk show. In 1976, he established Ronson Ziebart in Hooksett, NH and resided there the rest of his life with is family.
Donald T. Rondeau passed away on January 27, 2011 after a valiant battle with lung cancer at his home in Contoocook, NH at the age of 81. He leaves his wife of 61 years, Ida Mae; daughter Deborah and son Gary; three grandchildren and a great grandson.

When the critics write about Jubilee Records’ Don Rondo, more than often their introductory sentences began: “From farm boy to charm boy”, for indeed, Don did get his start in the music game while working on his Dad’s farm outside of Springfield, Massachusetts. One day, while “serenading” his barnyard friends, a passer-by heard the Rondo rhythms, suggested that the handsome crooner give serious though to a musical career, and that’s how it all began.
Today, Jubilee’s marvel is riding high in the world of wax, and his present day greatness, coupled with his fabulous past performances, has set him apart from his cohorts of song. Why? Well, let the critics tell the Don Rondo story for they, along with the millions of fans in the country, comprise the “audience” that can make or break a star.
Probably one of the “grandaddies” of the “roving” reporters is the internationally famous Walter Winchell, columnist for the New York Daily Mirror. After catching Don in one of his many night-club appearances Walter had this to say - “Not only is he a splendid performer, but a wonderful, wonderful singer. I am happy to report his is probably the best male voice to ever fill this vast nitery”.
Ted Pearson of Radio-TV Daily served as a fortune teller supreme when he stated - “Recommended record: “White Silver Sands” by Don Rondo. Rondo really lets go on this one and produces a potential top click”. Mr. Pearson, how right you were!!
In reference to one of Don’s more recent releases, Music Vendor was quoted with - “Curtain Call: Don Rondo’s Jubilee platter of “There’s Only You”, while Billboard magazine tossed a bouquet via “Rondo registers strongly with his delivery of “There’s Only You”…this appears to be the loot platter”. And continuing along Don’s musical trail of song, Ontario, Canada’s Daily Star added their rave with “Two Different Worlds” has made disc history”.
“Today’s Bravo”: Don Rondo is an artist to be reckoned - rich voiced baritone. He’s really a Jubilee plum thanks to his vocal pipes”. These and many, many more words have come the gifted Bay Stater’s way. And truer words were never spoken.
The newest Rondo release “Made For Each Other”, should definitely bring more accolades Don’s way, for this tune-topper is taking off in fine fashion. Any why not? For indeed, when such captions as “the perfect artist”, “a solid click”, and “powerful styling” are dished out, there’s only one fellow on the receiving end - Jubilee Records’ musical king - Don Rondo.
