Curley Williams: Half As Much (& His Georgia Peach Pickers)

1-CD mit 28-seitigem Booklet, 29 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer 75:48 Minuten. 

'Mitch Miller sagte zu Wesley Rose: 'Der gute Hank hat's wieder mal gepackt!', aber Wesley Rose entgegnete: 'Nein, Curley Williams hat Half As Much komponiert.' Daraufhin Mitch Miller: 'Und wer ist Curley Williams?' Wesley Rose: 'Der Typ ist seit etwa sieben Jahren auf deinem Label.' 

Und genau das war, in aller Kürze, Curley Williams' Dilemma: Er war vor Hank Williams in der Grand Ole Opry und in der Louisiana Hayride, er nahm vor Hank Williams Schallplatten auf – und trotzdem erinnert sich kaum noch jemand an ihn, höchstens daran, daß er Half As Much geschrieben hat, einen von Hank Williams' populärsten Hits. Diese beiden CDs sind eine Retrospektive der Musik des großen, leider völlig unterbewerteten Western-Swing-Stars Curley Williams. Nur selten auf Vinyl und noch nie auf CD wiederveröffentlicht, sind diese beiden Compact Discs ein wahres Füllhorn grandioser Western-Swing-Musik. Nur wenige haben je von Curley Williams gehört und noch weniger kennen seine Musik – dennoch steht er auf einer Qualitätsstufe mit den besten Bandleadern des Western Swing der 40er und 50er Jahre.

Wer ein Faible für Bob Wills, Hank Thompson, Hank Penny oder Spade Cooley hat, wird garantiert auch Curley Williams mögen. Die vorliegenden Discs enthalten seine vollständigen Arbeiten für Columbia, seine sämtlichen frühen Aufnahmen von 1945 bis 1952 – und dazu die unglaublich seltenen Demos von Time Has Proven I Was Wrong und No, Not Now , die er gemeinsam mit Hank Williams eingespielt hat. Mit Hank Williams hat er auch weiterhin gearbeitet und außerdem einen seiner größten Hits Half As Much komponiert. Diese Veröffentlichung unterstreicht aber überdeutlich, daß Curley Williams weitaus mehr gewesen ist, als eine bloße Fußnote in der Geschichte von Hank Williams.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Williams, Curley"

Curley Williams and the Georgia Peach Pickers: Half As Much

This collection and its companion ('Just A-Pickin’ And A-Singin’,' BCD 16326) gather the complete recordings of Curley Williams & his Georgia Peach Pickers, made for Columbia Records between 1945-1952. In addition to all of Curley’s released performances, all his and the Peach Pickers’ previously unissued titles are all issued for the first time in these volumes. Added to this body of recordings are a handful of heretofore unreleased alternate takes and two demo recordings made by Curley and his friend Hank Williams of songs the two wrote while working together in Shreveport in 1948-1949. 'Just A-Pickin’ And A-Singin’ ' traces Curley’s recording career from his first session in 1945 through the end of 1947, while the selections on this second CD are from the period between 1949 and 1952 and, in addition, include a selection of alternate cuts made between 1946 and 1951.

Curley Williams was born Dock Williams, on June 3, 1913 (some sources claim 1914, although Curley’s application for a Social Security card states 1913), on a farm located in the Lime Sink Militia District of Grady County, in south Georgia, near the town of Cairo, less than 20 miles from the Florida line. Curley, one of eight children, was the seventh son born to a country fiddler who was also the son of a country fiddler. Curley’s parents, in observance of the old adage that a seventh son was destined to become a doctor, considered it appropriate to christen their seventh son Dock. Curley who, like his father and grandfather, became a fiddler rather than a doctor, proved that the old saying has its exceptions. Three of Curley’s brothers also became musicians and, at one time or another, all three of them, Sanford, J. D., and Joseph, were members of Curley’s bands.

Playing a fiddle that belonged to his grandfather, Curley picked up his first gigs providing music for dances in South Georgia. Making music was a sideline, however, as the Williamses earned their living raising cotton and corn.

Musicians of the 1930s and 1940s who had aspirations for a career in country music had to have radio exposure. Every town of appreciable size had a radio station and most of them featured one or more hillbilly bands. Curley and his group, then called the Santa Fe Trail Riders, made their radio debut on WPAX in Thomasville, Georgia, around 1940. Like almost all country music groups of the time, Curley and his band changed radio outlets periodically, always in search of new and larger audiences. Curley’s stint at WPAX (250 watts) was followed by jobs on two other South Georgia stations, WMGA (250 watts) in Moultrie and the much more powerful WALB (1,000 watts) in Albany.

In December 1942 Curley took his band to Nashville, Tennessee, where they joined the cast of the Grand Ole Opry, the prestigious Saturday night country music radio/stage show that had been heard on radio station WSM since 1925. The band that performed on the Opry consisted of Curley, vocals and fiddle; Joseph Williams, rhythm guitar; Sanford Williams, bass and comedy; Clyde 'Boots' Harris, steel guitar; and Joe Pope, piano. They were later joined by Jimmy Selph on vocals and guitar. Boots Harris had joined Curley’s group earlier in the year at Albany, Georgia. Harris was working with Hank Williams whose band was on tour backing Tex Ritter when they played a date in Albany that also included Curley and his band. It was then that Harris, who was 18 years old, decided to cast his lot with Curley.

Prior to joining the Grand Ole Opry cast, Curley had been known professionally by his real name, Dock. The name Doc Williams, however, had been in use since 1936 by Andrew Smik whose band, the Border Riders, was a headliner act on the WWVA Jamboree in Wheeling, West Virginia. To avoid confusion, Grand Ole Opry manager, George D. Hay, suggested that his new artist take the name Curley, because of his curly hair, and call his band the Georgia Peach Pickers, since most of the members were from Georgia.

Curley Williams and the Georgia Peach Pickers were heard regularly on the Opry on the 9:00 to 9:30 segment sponsored by Royal Crown Cola and on the 10:15 to 10:30 portion for such sponsors as Weatherhouse and Walrite. From time to time they also made appearances on the show’s other time slots, including the NBC network show sponsored by Prince Albert Smoking Tobacco. Their musical offerings included songs like There Is No Love To Die, Smoke On The Water, Hang Your Head In Shame, and instrumentals such as Blue Steel Blues, South, and Steel Guitar Twist. While on the Opry, Curley and his Georgia Peach Pickers worked with such artists as Curley Fox and Texas Ruby, the Cackle Sisters (Carolyn and Mary Jane De Zurik), Paul Howard and His Arkansas Cotton Pickers, Zeke Clements, Pee Wee King and the Golden West Cowboys, Bill Monroe, Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, and Ernest Tubb.
