Conway Twitty: Conway Twitty's Greatest Hits (LP, Stereo, Japan)

(Polydor-Japan) 12 tracks, Stereo, with OBI, including lyrics sheet

Born in Friars Point, Mississippi, Conway boasts his town has a population of 500. "When I visit there," says Conway, "I up it to 501". The young Mr. Twitty's early ambitions were baseball and preaching. He also sang and played guitar just as a hobby. Perhaps his love of music was sparked by his dad, a Mis-sissippi river boat pilot who always found time to pick up a guitar and sing a few bars of some rhythmic Dixie tunes. Conway started going steady at the age of 13. After three and a half years of never dat-ing another girl, her parents decided to break up the romance. They believed that the duo was too young and that they should date others.

Conway found his life uprooted and picked up stakes heading for life in another town—in another state. He moved to Alabama to finish his last year of high school. Though Conway was thrown into completely strange surroundings, it wasn't long before he resolved a conflict be-tween two rival gang-leaders that was heading toward tragedy. Young Conway, a stranger to all concerned, solved the problem that had divided the school and plagued the towns-people. The two fighting boys, tearful, had poured out their hearts to Conway in the graveyard next door to the Church. "They really didn't want to go on this way", says Conway, "but their pride wouldn't let them give up. I told them that pride can be a man's worst enemy." To this day, Conway still prizes the letter the minister of his church re-ceived from the governor of the state praising Conway's help! After high school, Conway joined the Army.

At about this time, a smaller hobby of Conway's began to grow in dimension. He had been writing songs since he was 10 and loved to sing — but only for his own enjoyment. He never gave any thought to turning his singing and writing talents toward a career. But he joined a musical group called "Cimmarons" while stationed in Japan, and one of the mem-bers was so impressed with Conway's obvious talent that he suggested he contact manager Don Seat when he returned to the United States. All Conway knew about rock 'n' roll then was that he liked the "different sound" of Elvis Presley's recording of "Mystery Train".

 He thought no more about the matter. But after his release from the Army, he began thinking of what his buddy in the Army had said to him. A career in baseball no longer held the appeal and excitement for him that it once had. In two weeks he had made his decision — he picked up his guitar and started playing nightclubs in Arkansas with a small group. He called Don Seat, and Seat made arrangements to meet Conway in Pittsburgh to talk business. Seat became his manager and changed his name from Harold Lloyd Jenkins to Conway Twitty, and his career was launched. The demand for him in the United States became great, but he stayed in Canada to build a solid foundation for his run-away career.

 When he returned to the United States, he had his experience and the confidence of his manager and his parents behind him and a fantastic career ahead of him. And he had, too, the basic faith and understanding of his fellow human beings that he had learned a long time ago as a young boy.

Artist description "Twitty, Conway"

Conway Twitty

During Conway Twitty’s last years, he had good reason to reflect that country music was starting to take on much of the character of rock ‘n’ roll as he remembered it. New faces, impossibly young and good-looking, coming and going so quickly. It was so like rock ‘n’ roll in the Fifties. Twitty probably knew that--in all likelihood--there would never be another career like his. His story spanned almost thirty years in the country charts, and another five years in the pop charts before that. All told, there were five decades in which a Conway Twitty record was somewhere in the charts. It was an epic career with all the ingredients of the movie that will probably be made.

Conway Twitty’s greatest gift was his intuitive understanding of his audience. When rock ‘n’ roll changed in the mid-1960s, he realized that neither he nor his fans were listening to it any more, so he switched to country music. Country spoke to him and his audience in a way that rock didn’t. As a country singer, he wrote songs and searched out songs that addressed everyday highs and lows. He followed a generation as it made its often awkward way into and through adulthood. Whether rockin’ on Bandstand or croonin’ in Branson, Conway Twitty always knew what his audience wanted. He didn’t need market surveys, media consultants, or spin doctors. He just knew.


BIG RIVER

Conway Twitty was born Harold Lloyd Jenkins in Friars Point, Mississippi, on September 1, 1933, the oldest son of Floyd and Velma Jenkins. Velma named Harold for the bespectacled slapstick comedy star of the silent movies. Friars Point is a small town on the Mississippi, 75 miles south of Memphis. Five hundred people lived there then. In later years, Twitty liked to draw a parallel between himself and Huckleberry Finn, but the fact remains that Twitty was a child of the Depression. Floyd worked when and where he could, and was often away from home at WPA camps. He was part of the crew that built the dam at Sardis, Mississippi, and when Velma went there to live with him, she left young Harold with her mother. Grandma McGinnis worked at Pa Fuller’s boarding house, and it was Pa Fuller who gave Twitty his first guitar. When Twitty was eight, Floyd and Velma came back to Friars Point, and Floyd got a job on one of the ferry boats that crossed the river. Two years later, in 1943, the family moved over to the Arkansas side and settled in Helena.

Music was everywhere in that part of the Delta; it came from the Grand Ole Opry, local radio, tent shows, socials, church, street musicians, and almost every front porch. It was part of the fabric of life. “The only music we ever heard was country music,” Twitty said later. “We’d all get together on Saturday night at my grandma’s house and listen to the Grand Ole Opry. I didn’t know there was another station.” When Twitty began to pick and sing, the Opry stars were his early idols. Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, Red Foley, Robert Lunn 'The Talking Blues Boy,' Eddy Arnold...they all left their mark. In 1976, he recorded a tribute to the Opry, The Grandest Lady Of Them All, although sentimentality never led him to seek membership because that would have meant giving up the most lucrative night of the week in exchange for the Opry’s pittance...
