Hank Williams: Pictures From Life's Other Side: The Man And His Music In Rare Recordings And Photos (6-CD/Book Set)

Hank Williams was a star of WSM's Grand Ole Opry when he started hosting his own radio show for the same station in 1951. Sponsored by Mother's Best Flour Company, the 15-minute shows are broadcast every weekday. But there was a problem: Williams was very popular and his busy touring schedule meant he couldn't always be on the station to play the show live. Many of the shows were actually pre-recorded transcription discs that were broadcast and then forgotten. The discs were rediscovered decades later, and the find more than doubled the number of known Hank Williams recordings.

The present collection of six CDs contains 144 tracks that provide a complete overview of Hank's performances from the existing transcription discs.

While previous compilations were either a selection of Mother's Best material or all the recordings were presented as part of individual radio show presentations (along with guest singers and instrumental numbers), this is the first collection that summarizes the entirety of Hank Williams Mother's Best performances and presents them outside the framework of independent radio programs.

The recordings are presented in a slipcase with an elaborate book that documents Hank's career along with many photographs. With the support of Grammy nominee Scott B. Bomar and Hank's photo collector Ken Campanile, the 272-page hardback volume was compiled by leading Hank Williams expert Colin Escott, who wrote the definitive biography of the American musical icon and has received two Grammy awards for best historical album for his production work on previous major Williams-related releases. Hank's daughter, Jett Williams, introduces the English language book with a touching foreword.

This collection of classics including "Lovesick Blues", "A Mansion on the Hill", "Move It On Over", "I Saw the Light", "Cold Cold Cold Heart", "Long Gone Lonesome Blues", "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love with You)" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is an important addition to the legacy of music legend Hanks Williams, who died on New Year's Day 1953 at the age of only 29.

Pictures From Life's Other Side - The Man And His Music captures the legend in a way that recalls his enduring influence.

Hank Williams was to me the first rock 'n' roll singer.
Don Everly

When Hank Williams's first M-G-M record hit radio stations and Southern juke joints in June 1947, country music was poised for a seismic shift. Western swing and cowboy crooners were waning in popularity, as were the mournful wails of Roy Acuff and trumpet-driven jukebox novelties. Eddy Arnold and Red Foley ruled the charts with finely honed records that sounded more uptown than down-home. Beyond a few select artists with established regional appeal, the major labels mostly ignored Southeastern vocalists who sounded too 'hillbilly,' leaving this market to aggressive independent labels. When King Records in Cincinnati began racking impressive sales figures with raw, unabashedly rural music, the majors took notice but stayed the course.

Williams's Move It On Over was not Ernest Tubb's, Floyd Tillman's or Moon Mullican's Texas honky tonk. It was something fresh and exciting, fusing passionate Acuffian phrasing with a high-volume backbeat straight out of late '30s Chicago race records. It rocked like crazy and formally introduced Hank Williams as a significant voice in country music.

Williams's early years and influences have been thoroughly documented elsewhere. New York writer Roger Williams (no relation) wrote the first significant biography in 1970 ('Sing A Sad Song: A Life Of Hank Williams'; Doubleday). The next fifteen years brought other full-length bios by Jay Caress, Chet Flippo, and George William Koon, among others. Dr. Charles K. Wolfe and Bob Pinson also contributed to our understanding of Williams's life, music, career and recordings. These studies have been largely supplanted by Colin Escott's 'Hank Williams: A Biography' (Little, Brown & Co., 1994) and his notes to Mercury Records' comprehensive 1998 compact disc anthology 'The Complete Hank Williams.'

Hiram 'Hank' Williams was born September 17, 1923 in Mount Olive Community, Alabama, the second child born to Elonzo Huble Williams (1891-1970) and Jessie Lillie Belle Skipper (1898-1955). Lon Williams, a native of Lowndes County, Alabama, was a locomotive driver for a logging company when he met Lillie Skipper. The couple struggled financially after their November 1916 marriage, often relying on help from Lillie's family and meager income from a small general store in their house. Lon Williams was drafted into the army in July 1918, spending part of the next eleven months in France. During his military service he suffered a serious head injury in either a drunken brawl over a woman or a fall from a truck. Although he apparently recovered, the injury caused irreparable neurological damage that later resurfaced.

Returning from the war, Lon Williams worked sporadically at the lumberyards, while Lillie took jobs as a nurse, a cannery worker and seamstress. Their first child, Irene, was born in August 1922, followed by Hank a year later.

Life was hard, but the family got by. On Sundays Lillie sang and played organ at the Mount Olive West Baptist Church. In one of his rare print interviews, Hank recalled those days to San Francisco journalist Ralph J. Gleason. "My earliest memory is sittin' on that organ stool and hollerin'," he said. "I must have been five, six years old, and louder 'n anybody else."

His parents noticed their son had a swollen spot on his spine, a birth defect later diagnosed as Spina Bifida Occulta. If not corrected by surgery, the spinal cord could herniate outward from the spine. Hank's condition went untreated. As he aged, the ailment progressed, leaving him susceptible to back injuries and debilitating pain.

Soon after the 1929 stock market crash, Lon became impaired by a brain aneurysm likely triggered by his earlier head injury. Temporarily unable to speak and his face paralyzed, he was admitted to a Veterans Administration hospital in Biloxi that November. He never lived with his family again.
