Hank Snow: Snow Under Western Skies

1-CD Digipak (4-plated) with 23-page booklet, 31 tracks. Playing time approx. 85 mns.

Before 22-year-old Hank Snow auditioned at the Montreal offices of RCA Victor's Canadian Division in October 1936, Repertoire and Recording Manager A.H. 'Hugh' Joseph asked if he had any original songs. "Friends, I told him a little white lie," Snow recalled in his 1994 autobiography. "I said yes, I have two good songs that I have just written."

Giving the budding recording artist the address of an old church RCA was temporarily using as a studio, Joseph told him to appear there at 2 p.m. tomorrow. Although elated by this opportunity, Snow now worried about those two non-existent originals he promised to have ready. Returning to his hotel room, he wrote a Jimmie Rodgers pastiche titled Lonesome Blue Yodel and a convoluted ballad about a cowboy singer turned outlaw. While no lyrical masterpiece, Prisoned Cowboy became an auspicious start to a recording career stretching across six decades. It also reflected Snow's lifelong fascination with the American and Canadian West – romantic places he only dreamed about during his Nova Scotia childhood.

At age 12 Snow escaped an abusive stepfather's wrath by signing on as a cabin boy on a fishing schooner. For the next four years, the slight-statured youth endured grueling conditions in the North Atlantic. On his occasional visits home, he'd wind up his mother's Victrola and repeatedly play Vernon Dalhart's The Prisoner's Song and The Wreck Of The Old 97. Eventually resettling with his sister and her husband in Bluerocks, Nova Scotia, Snow bought his first guitar. Now drawn to the blue yodels of Jimmie Rodgers, he mastered the Singing Brakeman's songs and style.

Prisoned Cowboy and Lonesome Blue Yodel sold enough copies to merit a second session. By now Snow concentrated on songwriting, many of his lyrics built upon sentimental Western themes. Early songs like We Met Down In The Hills Of Old Wyoming, I'll Ride Back To Lonesome Valley and There's A Picture On Pinto's Saddle hardly compared with the vivid Western sagas of Bob Nolan or Stuart Hamblen, but they helped establish a following for 'Hank, The Yodeling Ranger.' The Texas Cowboy, recorded in February 1939, was one of Snow's livelier early efforts. Its spoken introduction gives us an idea of Snow's formative broadcasts on Canadian radio.

Snow's ten sessions for Canadian RCA through 1947 included at least one song about Texas or the open range. Not all were written by the singer. Snow learned Bobby Gregory's Riding Along, Singing A Song from a Decca 78 by Denver Darling. Philadelphia promoter and song publisher Jack Howard gave him Tom Grindhart's Blue Ranger. Howard, one of the first Americans to champion Snow's career, booked him into several Philadelphia-area venues during July 1944. He also brought the singer to Wheeling to meet Harry 'Big Slim' McAuliffe, who offered to help Snow land a slot on WWVA's Midnight Jamboree.

Realizing his career could only go so far in Canada, Snow moved to Wheeling. As he did with many other young talents, McAuliffe worked tirelessly on Snow's behalf. Besides bringing him to WWVA, McAuliffe outfitted Snow with the essentials for a traveling stage show, including a trained horse. For the next four years Snow and his troupe zigzagged across the border. But despite his high visibility and popularity in his home country, Snow found it difficult to get any real foothold in America. Hugh Joseph lobbied RCA Victor's New York office to release his best-selling couplings in the United States. Label officials weren't interested, even though a few resourceful American country disc jockeys spun his Canadian Bluebird records to good listener response.

In January 1948 the American Federation of Musicians forbade its members to make recordings. Desperate to maintain a release schedule through the year, RCA Victor turned to Snow's Canadian masters. My Sweet Texas Bluebonnet Queen was released that April, followed two months later by Brand On My Heart. Dallas disc jockey Hal Horton turned Brand On My Heart into a local hit. Its success led Snow to abandon his futile attempt to break into Hollywood; he arrived in Dallas early that fall, his trained horse in tow and only eleven dollars in his pocket.

Artist description "Snow, Hank"

Hank Snow

Geb. 9. 5. 1914 in Brooklyn - Nova Scotia - Kanada
Record Labels: RCA, Detour
Erster Top Ten Hit: Marriage Vow (1949)
Erster No. 1 Hit: I'm Movin' On (1950)

Clarence Eugene „Hank“ Snow, The Singing Ranger, war von 1936 bis 1981 bei einundderselben Firma exklusiv unter Vertrag und wäre es nicht zu heftigen Auseinandersetzungen um angeblich nicht korrekt ausgezahlte Tantiemen gekommen, Hank hätte 1986 sein 50jähriges Jubiläum bei RCA feiern können, mit Sicherheit ein einzigartiger Rekord, nicht nur im Country- sondern auch im Popmusikbereich. Hank Snow gilt schon längst als einer der ganz großen Stilisten des Genres, unverwechselbar als Sänger wie auch als Gitarrist. Als einer der ganz wenigen kanadischen Country Interpreten hat er es zu Weltruhm gebracht. Anfangs noch stark von seinem Idol Jimmie Rodgers beeinflusst, hat Hank Snow rasch seinen eigenen unverkennbaren Stil gefunden, kraftvoll, erdig und virtuos.

Seine große Zeit waren die 50er Jahre. Mit selbstgeschriebenen Songs wie I`m Movin' On“, „The Golden Rocket“, "The Rhumba Boogie“, "Unwanted Sign Upon Your Heart“ oder „Music Makin” Mama From Memphis“ kam er regelmäßig unter die Top Ten der Country Charts. Aber auch in den 60er und 70er Jahren war er immer noch in den Hitlisten zu finden, auch wenn er nicht mehr sein Abonnement für die Top Ten hatte. Seine Spezialität waren immer die Railroadsongs gewesen und mit einer fein abgestimmten Mischung aus Romantik und Realismus war es Snow stets gelungen diesen Liedern eine ganz eigenartige Atmosphäre mit auf den Weg zu geben. Erinnert sei neben den bekannten großen Erfolgen wie „I`m Movin' On“ oder "The Golden Rocket“ an „Big Wheels“, „One More Ride“, "The Last Ride“, "Hobo Bill`s Last Ride“, „Doggone That Train“,“ Ben Dewberry's Final Run“, "The Mystery Of Number Five“, "The Wreck Of The Old `97“ oder "The Southern Cannonball“. 1979 wurde Hank Snow in die Country Music Hall Of Fame aufgenommen.
