  • Ronnie Hawkins' beste Rock 'n' Roll-Nummern für Quality und Roulette, die wildesten Kracher aus der Hoch-Zeit des Rock 'n' Roll auf CD-Album!
  • Mit einem unveröffentlichten Rockabilly-Glanzstück von 1958
  • Das CD-Album enthält dde allerersten Aufnahmen von The Band
  • Viele seltene Fotos und eine aktualisierte Session-Discographie

In den Endfünfzigern kam Ronnie Hawkins mit Getöse aus Arkansas und hat sich seinen Ruf als 'Der letzte der ursprünglichen Rock 'n' Roller' erarbeitet. Verblüffend, daß erst nach einer Umsiedlung nach Kanada seine dynamische Bühnenpräsenz und seine große Persönlichkeit Anerkennung fanden. 1958 begann Ronnie Hawkins eine Karriere, die nun schon seit 50 Jahren Bestand hat. Hier gibt es Ronnie Hawkins ersten Rockabilly-Aufnahmen für das Quality-Label in Toronto und außerdem die Highlights seiner zehnjährigen Zusammenarbeit mit Roulette Records, natürlich mit den Hits Mary Lou und Forty Days


Für Ronnie Hawkins spielte stets die Creme der Begleitmusiker – im Booklet wird erzählt, wie seine Band The Hawks sich zu einem Quintett mit Robbie Robertson und Levon Helm entwickelte, das später u.a. mit Bob Dylan auf Tournee ging und Weltgeltung unter dem Namen The Band erlangte. Ronnie Hawkins surreale Einspielung von Bo Diddleys Who Do You Love gilt als eine Sternstunde des Rock 'n' Roll und mustergültiges Beispiel für die Gitarrenkünste von Robbie Robertson. Alle 32 Songs auf diesem CD-Album sind exzellenter und auch abgedrehter Rock 'n' Roll und Rockabilly der Handelsklasse A. 
Fazit: Mehr als nur unverzichtbar!

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Hawkins, Ronnie"

Ronnie Hawkins

Ronnie Hawkins should have died in 2002 when the doctors agreed that the cancer growing in his stomach was inoperable. With heavy hearts, his many showbiz friends solemnly gathered to say their final farewells to this larger than life character. Time was running out and perhaps only days remained, until a Nashville faith healer materialised and through powers beyond anybody's comprehension, dissolved the evil in his stomach and the Hawk, like a super-hero, emerged unscathed to rock 'n' roll again.

While convalescing at his home near Toronto, Canada, well-wishers were reassured that he was fully recovered and in fine shape but that one more hospital visit was still pending. With a twinkle in his eye he explained. "They want me back for penile reduction surgery". That is Ronnie. The king of the one line gags and a man who can say just about anything without giving offence. Perhaps he should have been a comedian, but instead he has lived his life as a rock 'n' roller.

The Ronnie Hawkins story began on 10th January 1935 when Ronald Cornett Hawkins was born in Huntsville, Arkansas, the third and final child of Jasper and Flora Hawkins. It was a good week for babies in the south. Four hundred miles to the east, in Tupelo, Mississippi, Gladys Presley was suffering mixed emotions following the arrival of her twins two days earlier. One had been still born, but happily the other, whom she would call Elvis, was very much alive and already screaming his head off as if anxious to demonstrate his full vocal range.

Years later Ronnie provided a vivid description of his parents when he stated, "My dad was a champion redneck, liked to drink, chase women, fight and do all those things that rednecks like. My mother was a complete opposite. She was a religious fanatic who never missed church in 40 years and used to give 10 per cent of all she earned to the church, which really pissed my dad off".

When Ronnie was nine, the family left Huntsville and moved to Fayetteville. His father took a job cutting hair at the University of Arkansas barber shop and it was there that his son made the acquaintance of the shoe shine boy, a black musician called Buddy Hayes, who used to rehearse his band at the back of the shop. He had a profound effect on the impressionable youngster and Ronnie would spend long periods watching Buddy performing for nickels and dimes out in the square at Fayetteville. In time he gained enough confidence to visit the black area of town, known as the Hollow, where he would sneak into the musicians' hangouts at Sherman's Tavern or Irene's Café, or listen to the gospel singing down at the black church.

Ronnie started his own band while still at high school and spent one summer down in Memphis, sleeping in his car and hanging out with the local musicians. He was on a fact finding trip. "I knew a couple of cats down there and had some addresses. I wanted to get some of those old black records to learn and bring back".

His mother, a school teacher, may have succeeded in keeping him in school but everyone could sense that he was rapidly spinning out of control. Because of the poor public transport system in rural Arkansas, he had been permitted a driving licence at the age of 12 and this, in time, led him into a bootleg whisky operation. "I used to run whisky from Missouri to Oklahoma, which was a dry state. I was making $300 to $400 a week. It was no great risk because nobody would suspect a teenage kid of having a trunk full of whisky".

In August 1953 Hawkins was enlisted into the artillery division of the United States National Guard, which only meant weekend soldiering. It left him plenty of time both to play music and also to expand his business activities. The cash from his whisky operation was being invested in Arkansas nightclubs, where a friend, Dayton Stratton, had to front for him as he was still too young for his own liquor licence. He was also now enrolled at the University of Arkansas on a course in science and physical education with vague thoughts about training as a physiotherapist, but studying was never very high on the daily agenda.

He bailed out of University in December 1956, but despite having served in the National Guard, was still eligible for a period of military service. If there was no outbreak of war, he could clear his obligations to Uncle Sam with a six month stint and after basic training at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas was stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma for the remainder of his service and it was here that he became a serious rock 'n' roller.

In the racially sensitive fifties a white boy fronting a black rock 'n' roll band in the south seems an unlikely scenario, but at that time there was a popular nightclub called the Amvets Club at Lawton, Oklahoma where the soldiers from Fort Sill would go on their weekend passes. They had a hot little band who played a mixture of rock 'n' roll and blues and Ronnie would sing a couple of songs with them every time he visited the club. Eventually he was hired to front the band on a regular basis at $20 a night whenever his army commitments would allow. One of the Black Hawks, as they became known, was saxophone player A C Reed, half brother of blues legend, Jimmy Reed.

The period with the Black Hawks only lasted as long as Hawkins was serving his time in the military and his career did not properly get started until he returned to Arkansas and hitched up with guitarist Jimmy Ray Paulman, known by the nickname 'Luke'. Brought up in Marianna, Arkansas, Paulman was an exceptional musician who had already toured and recorded with Conway Twitty and more recently had played rockabilly guitar as one of Billy Riley's Little Green Men. When Riley had played at the University of Arkansas, Hawkins had done some guest vocals with the band and sufficiently impressed Paulman that he called and invited him to join a new outfit he was putting together.

They met up in Helena, Arkansas where Ronnie was introduced to Paulman's cousin, Willard 'Pop' Jones, a frantic if somewhat unrefined pianist and the three men were soon rehearsing, while at the same time looking out for a drummer. They found one just outside Helena in the small town of Marvell, Arkansas. Levon Helm was a 15 year old schoolboy who did not even own a set of drums but would go on to become one of the finest rock 'n' roll drummers of them all.

During this period Ronnie was lodging at the Rainbow Motel in Helena which was owned by a local businessman, Charlie Halbert. He paid his way by doing odd jobs for Halbert and at one point was found work painting the ferry boat, 'Memphis Queen'. Fortunately Charlie was a generous man who loved musicians and had once booked Elvis Presley a gig at the Catholic Club at a time when he barely had the money to get home. It was Charlie Halbert who funded the purchase of Levon's drum kit and who constantly encouraged Ronnie and the Hawks as they slowly worked out their act, through long hours of practice in the basement of Radio KFFA, Helena.
