Unbelievably, there's still more to discover, still more to hear by Hank Williams. In these audio snapshots we hear him as a fifteen-year-old performer making his very first recordings; two years later, he's a brash young singer with a local following around Montgomery, Alabama; another nine years on, he's newly arrived in Nashville, hosting his first syndicated radio series; and finally, he's the biggest star in country music performing a couple of public service shows. Two years after the last of these shows, his brief, incendiary career would be over. In 1938 or '39, when Hank was fifteen and had no shortage of confidence, he recorded 'Fan It', a song originally waxed by bluesman Frankie 'Half Pint' Jaxon in 1928. 

The second song was 'Alexander's Ragtime Band'. On the evidence of a 1940 home recording, Hank's voice had matured considerably in two years. And at a time when country and pop music were stiff and mannered, Hank was already rocking out. The 'Health and Happiness ' shows were recorded in Nashville in October 1949, four months after Hank moved to Nashville to join the Grand Ole Opry. Now, more than sixty years after they were recorded, we can hear them as they first sounded, without overdubs and later added live applause. 

The twelve years encapsulated on this set saw Hank Williams rise from 'The Singing Kid' on Montgomery's WSFA to the preeminent country star of his time.(Time Life 2011)

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.
