Ronnie Hawkins: The Ballads Of Ronnie Hawkins

Video von Ronnie Hawkins - The Ballads Of Ronnie Hawkins

1-CD-Album DigiPac (4-seitig) mit 32-seitigem Booklet, 30 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 83 Minuten.

Die definitiv besten Ronnie Hawkins-Balladen für Roulette, Hawk, Cotillion, Monument und Quality, eine karriereumspannende Zusammenstellung auf CD als Album, u.a. mit dem von John Lennon gelobten Down In The Alley (ein US-Hit) sowie kanadischen Bestsellern wie Bluebirds Over The Mountains und (Stuck In) Lodi. Verblüffend gefühlvoller Gesang des wilden Rock 'n' Rollers. Darum hat Elvis gern dem Mann zugehört, der noch immer 'Mr. Dynamo' genannt wird. Brillante Interpretationen gefühlvoller Songs von Amerikas bedeutendsten Komponisten, darunter Hank Williams, Tim Hardin und Bob Dylan, mit den besten Begleitmusikern wie Levon Helm, Hank Garland, Duck Dunn und dem Spitzen-Slide-Gitarristen Duane Allman aufgenommen.

Ronnie Hawkins' phantastische Rockabilly- und Rock 'n' Roll-Nummern sind bereits auf 'Ronnie Hawkins Rocks' (BCD 16873) als CD-Album erhältlich - unverzichtbar für alle Rock 'n' Roll-Fans und auch für diejenigen, die gern erfahren möchten, wo die Musiker von The Band ihr Handwerk erlernten. Kurz: Der Mann ist für seine eingefleischten Fans ein Halbgott. Dieses CD-ALbum allerdings zeichnet sich aus durch Ronnie Hawkins' warmen, fließenden und gefühlvollen Gesang - auf wundervollen Titeln einiger der besten amerikanischen Songschreiber, darunter Kris Kristofferson, Jesse Winchester, Tim Hardin und Bob Dylan.

Dies sind nicht die Titel, die Ronnie Hawkins berühmt machten, aber der Zuhörer wird dennoch angenehm berührt sein - von dem Flair, das langsamere Melodien von unübertroffener Schönheit transportiert sowie von seiner Fähigkeit, auch melancholische und aufrüttelnde Songs zu meistern. One More Night etwa, schrieb der 'Rolling Stone', 'ist umwerfend gut. Ronnie Hawkins' Stimme gleitet über die Texte wie Flüssigkeit über Glas. Sein Geschmack und sein Timing sind makellos. Das ist künstlerische Feinheit in Reinkultur.' Hier gibt es One More Night - mit 29 weiteren Beispielen aus Country, Folk und Blues-Balladen, alle ebenso unterschätzt wie großartig.

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.
