"I am maybe the world’s biggest Floyd Tillman fan." Willie Nelson.

Floyd Tillman was one of country music’s great stylists and alltime greatest songwriters. His music embraced Western Swing, Honky Tonk, and Jazz, and several of his songs became Pop classics. Although born in Oklahoma, he was a Texas music pioneer, embodying all that was different and truly great about the music of the Lone Star state. Floyd Tillman was a pioneering electric guitarist…among the first to bring the instrument to country music, and perhaps the most idiosyncratic vocalist ever to sing a country song. His influence on other stylists, such as Willie Nelson, is inestimable. "You could tell, right away, that his music wasn't the typical country music of the time," Willie Nelson said. "He had some of those Django Reinhardt rhythms in his guitar playing, and he was singing about subjects that just weren't being sung about at the time." Floyd Tillman wrote several country music standards, including It Makes No Difference Now, They Took The Stars Out Of Heaven, Each Night At Nine, Slippin’ Around, I’ll Keep On Loving You, and
I Love You So Much It Hurts.

Altogether, his songs have appeared on 50 million records, and have been recorded by artists as diverse as Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, the Supremes, and Ray Charles. His music is also studded with wryly observed non-hits and minor classics like This Cold War With You, Driving Nails In My Coffin and I Gotta Have My Baby Back, all of them transformed into standards. This boxed set starts with Floyd Tillman's debut recordings as a guitarist and occasional singer for the Blue Ridge Playboys in 1936, and includes all the recordings from his five year stint with Decca (1939-1944) and nine classic years with Columbia (1946-1955). It also includes a handful of small label sides from 1955-1957, his RCA Victor LP from 1958, two sessions for Liberty Records in 1960 and 1961 and his 1962 Cimarron recordings as well as the highly acclaimed 1981 Gilleys LP that includes duets with Ernest Tubb, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Gilley himself. The backing includes Texas legends like Moon Mullican, Bob Dunn,
Johnny Gimble, Herbie Remington, and Ted Daffan.

Altogether, there are 173 recordings, and a 80-page-hardcover-book by Kevin Coffey. Sadly, Floyd himself did not live to see this tribute. He died in August 2003. Inducting Floyd Tillman into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1984, Willie Nelson said, “Thanks for giving me words to say and melodies to sing that express my own feelings, along with those of millions of other people.”

"Floyd Tillman"

Floyd Tillman

"…[A]mong his contemporaries, only Floyd Tillman and Lefty Frizzell could rival Hank in the critical test of bringing apparently infinite variety to an essentially limited format…Tillman, the least known of the three, was perhaps the most innovative. Originally from rural Oklahoma, he graduated from Texas country swing bands to write standards like 'Slipping Around,' 'It Makes No Difference Now,' 'I Love You So Much It Hurts,' and 'This Cold War With You,' as well as wryly observed non-hits like 'Small Little Town.' His problem was that around 1949 he adopted a new singing style in which the world seemed to be viewed through the bottom of a shot glass. Radio play quickly dried up."

– Colin Escott, Hank Williams.

 "Floyd didn't have a great education – I think he probably went to maybe fifth grade…But I would call him definitely a very well self-educated man…He wrote beautiful things. He did a lot of songs that could not be considered country at all. The people that used to come to the dances, they either loved Floyd's voice or they hated it. They'd say, 'He can't sing, but he sure can write songs.'"

– Marge Tillman in 1994.

"It just sort of come natural to me to sing with a little slur, because I'm not a vibrato singer. So I get around the vibrato by phrasing kind of like I do on the guitar, when I'm stretching the string. I stretch my voice the same way."

– Floyd Tillman in 1985.

 

Very few discussions of Floyd Tillman ignore that  voice, the unmistakable, much imitated (often lampooned), lazy, slurring drawl -- the "through the bottom of a shot glass"  style that Tillman himself cited to Escott as the reason radio play dried up -- that became more pronounced in the late 1940s, at the height of his performing and writing career.

Perhaps it was Tillman's increasingly overwrought vocals that effectively torpedoed his career, or perhaps it was the simple combination of fickle tastes, a changing marketplace and his own decision, for varied reasons, to scale back his activities around that time. The distinctiveness of his voice nevertheless guaranteed him immortality as much as his equally distinctive songwriting. Everyone sang Floyd Tillman songs, and quite a few those who did also knew they could get a quick, knowing laugh from their audience if they bent and phrased like Tillman.

As Tillman's voice became more stylised it drew attention from other aspects of his considerable talent. It didn't exactly disguise the fact that he was one of country music's great songwriters -- he was among the first crop of writers elected to the Nashville International Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970 -- but his voice arguably obscured that fact, and drew attention from the songs themselves.

Preoccupation with the voice has also lessened the attention paid to Tillman's pioneering efforts as a lead guitarist and as one of the earliest to record with the electric standard guitar. It's not uncommon to see Tillman cited in histories as an early electric guitarist, but what is usually ignored is how good  he really was. Those rare occasions that Tillman featured himself on lead guitar in the years after he chose to concentrate on writing and singing – his 1947 session in Chicago for Columbia, or his 1956 session for his buddy Ted Daffan -- were brief, tantalizing reminders of a talent that had he chosen to develop it could have been as significant as his other achievements.

But he didn't develop it, and it's difficult to tell if he regretted that fact. Almost every feature written about Tillman during his lifetime quoted him as protesting that in the beginning he was just a guitarist -- a lead guitarist, a pretty rare creature in the mid-1930s -- and that he only sang because he had to. There's a hint in these interviews, however, that perhaps Tillman was protesting too much, that deep down he'd wanted to sing all along, but didn't have the confidence in his soft, vibrato-less voice to admit it. True or not, he was a fine guitarist who could well have developed into an even finer one.

Merle Haggard – 'Untamed Hawk' Merle Haggard – 'Hag' Another blind spot joyfully banished. I'm a Johnny-come-lately when it comes to Hag, but with these two boxes I've become a zealot. Why are Johnny Cash and Gram Parsons, just for example, so revered in rock circles when Hag's associated with Okie From Muskogee and not much else?
