Bear Family have condensed the ‘The Lonesome Sound’ album to 10 inch size, and the album comprised 12 songs that were written and previously recorded by other artists. The specialists at Bear Family bring a vibrant quality into a project made originally from Hank Williams vocal demos, with session overdubs applied in the late 1950s in Nashville and give what fans have waited for, a clear vocal intonation, musical clarity, like never before.

Hank Williams had been laid to rest for seven years and the public still mourned his passing, and clamoured for new songs and the posthumous ‘The Lonesome Sound’ was the result of this request. The vocals used on ‘MGM E 3803’ were largely mixture of transcriptions, vocal and guitar demos. Some of the musicians used for this project had previously worked with Hank or had the ability to recreate his sound. To provide a full sound the session men nucleus comprised; Don Helms, Harold Bradley, Floyd Chance, and to deepen the sound and fit into the times drums were provided by Murrey Harman. The musicianship was sympathetic and perfectly done, what was at issue was the quality of the demos used, and at that time overdubbing was still in its infancy.

Hank’s interpretation of other artist’s songs, often found him injecting something new into the arrangements, changing the tempo and direction of many of the composition, stamping upon them his own identity. Upon hearing the music allow yourself to absorb the clarity, rhythm, and vocal delivery of Sundown and Sorrow, Roly Poly or Tennessee Border, hearing is believing, and the tempo hints at the next incantation of music’s development. The current political ‘hot’ topic in Europe is over pension and retirement payments. Crooning the melancholy and reflective Rockin’ Chair Money, transposes Hank into another persona, spending army wages in semi-retirement, rockin’ and swinging on the old porch chair. Within the song the simplicity of the past is clear, sadly Hank had no time to plan his future.

Ernest Tubb was clearly an influence on Hank, which can be heard from the bluesy radio transcription It Just Don’t Matter Now while I’m Free At Last and First Year Blues find Hank vocals almost cloning in style to the originator. However on torch songs Hank is full of anguish and this tortured vocal can easily linked be to the volatile time in his life, with his first wife Miss Audrey. Whether self-composed or taken from other artists the songs bond to his life and relationships. And this aspect is what is what makes Hank Williams different from the rest.

Staying with odes to lonesome and abandonment, and what was possibly an Irish folk song, No One To Welcome Me, is a heart-breaking poem to some unnamed prodigal son returning home, but all that was, is no longer the same. Bob Nolan’s Cool Water has been covered by many artist, the consummate performer that Hank was, he gives his best rendition of a man roaming the desert needing water to survive. It is public knowledge that Hank’s tipple was a little stronger than water!

Hank could sing them fast and he could sing them slow, when he sang the pain songs there were crooned with true anguish and with an intense emotional feel and the up-tempo shufflers looked at the happy aspects of life.  For many fans of the Montgomery Alabama born singer, his music is also regarded as the roots development of rockabilly music.

Quality is a word associated with Bear Family Records and you will hear the best possible sound from our products. And with today’s technology and the ability to remain true to the period, Bear Family breaths live into the almost 60 year old project and gives to the fans something which they will savour. The 110 gram vinyl and the deep groove which contains the music, adds to the richness of the sound. The sleeve offers numerous photographs and is expertly annotation and research by Martin Hawkins. This is something Hank Williams’s fans will need.

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.
