At last! The greatest singer-songwriter in country music history finally joins the Bear Family roster! This is the first anthology in more than fifty years devoted to Hank Williams' uptempo juke-joint classics! Packed with 33 tracks, its including 17 Top 10 country chart hits, all digitally remastered from the best-available source material. It includes rarely-heard demo overdubs by his Drifting Cowboys and the late Don Helms, plus an unexpectedly rocking take on Fool About You. 'Rockin' Chair Money' is the first new compilation of Hank Williams' uptempo classics since M-G-M's 'Honky Tonkin'' album from 1957. Starting with his original Sterling recording of Pan American, this collection showcases classics from virtually every point in the singer's six-year recording career along with some unexpected, seldom-heard treats, including a guitar-only demo of 'Ten Little Numbers' and a full-tilt rockabilly overdub on 'Fool About You'. Six other posthumous overdubs feature sympathetic backings from Hank Williams' Drifting Cowboys and steel guitarist Don Helms.

Part of Bear Family's acclaimed 'Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight' series, this 33-track collection is perfect for parties and road trips. Dave Samuelson provides an overview of Hank Williams, his songs and the recording sessions.

Artist description "Williams, Hank"

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.

Ich mag Hank Williams seit mehreren Jahrzehnten. Schon in meiner Jugend habe ich seine Lieder in den Country-Sendungen im Radio gehört und besitze einige CD's von ihm.
Bear Family hat hier eine Zusammenstellung von Liedern, von denen mir knapp die Hälfte bisher unbekannt waren. Aber auch die bekannteren Lieder machen einen großen Hör-Spaß, nicht zuletzt wegen der gewohnten Top-Qualität. Vielen Dank.
