Leona Williams & Merle Haggard: Old Loves Never Die

1-CD mit 24-seitigem Booklet, 28 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 77 Minuten.

Als Leona Williams ihren Plattenvertrag mit Mercury abgeschlossen hatte, waren die DJs einfach (noch) nicht bereit, sich auf Interpretinnen harter, kompromißloser Country-Musik einzulassen. Loretta und Tammy gelangen keine Top-Hits mehr, und Dolly orientierte sich in Richtung Pop. Gefällige, aber eher anspruchsarme Stilistinnen wie Janie Fricke und Anne Murray dominierten die Country-Radiostationen. Und von einer Patty Loveless oder Kathy Mattea war weit und breit noch nichts zu hören.

Entweder waren die Aufnahmen von Leona Williams rückständig oder aber ihrer Zeit ganz weit voraus. Wie auch immer – sie wurden nicht mit den Chart-Erfolgen belohnt, die sie verdient gehabt hätten. Dennoch ließ sich Leona Williams nicht entmutigen: Sie ist noch heute aktiv, zieht die Fans in Scharen zu ihren Shows in Branson, Missouri oder in Konzerte in ganz Amerika und in Kanada.

Viele Country-Freunde schätzen Leona Williams Songs, und die Wiederentdeckung ihre Plattenveröffentlichungen ist lange überfällig. Die vorliegende Bear-Family-CD präsentiert ihre Mercury-Aufnahmen, darunter 'Heart To Heart' – ein Duett-Album, das sie 1983 mit ihrem damaligen Ehemann Merle Haggard einspielte, und ihre Solo-Scheibe 'Someday When Things Are Good' von 1984. Außerdem sind sechs bislang unveröffentlichte Titel enthalten sowie ein augenzwinkernder Studio-Gag über Tommy Lasorda, den legendären Manager der Los Angeles Dodgers.

Auf zehn der Songs sind Merle Haggards Strangers aus den frühen 80ern zu hören – mit dem Leadgitarristen Roy Nichols, dem Mandolinen-Virtuosen Tiny Moore, Fiedel-Spieler Jimmy Belkin und
Norman Hamlett an der Steelgitarre.

"Leona Williams & Merle Haggard"

Williams, Leona & Merle Haggard

Perhaps Leona Williams's Mercury recordings were behind the times or maybe they were ahead of them. When she signed with the label in 1982, disc jockeys simply weren't responsive to women who sang hard, unrelenting country music. Loretta and Tammy no longer racked up top hits and Dolly made a jump to pop. Pleasant, unassuming stylists like Janie Fricke and Anne Murray ruled the country airwaves. Patty Loveless's, Paulette Carlson's and Kathy Mattea's breakthroughs remained years away.

But if disc jockeys didn't appreciate her talents, many industry heavyweights did. Her supporters have included such notables as Loretta Lynn, Wesley Rose, Ernest Tubb, Jimmy Bowen, George Jones, Vince Gill, and most notably, Merle Haggard.

Ironically, after nearly two decades of seeking that elusive career-making record, Leona discovered her true niche as an opening act. She can entertain an audience without threatening a sensitive headliner's ego. Since she doesn't carry an oppressive backlog of hits, Leona continually refines her artistry while keeping her shows fresh and fluid.

Unfortunately, chart placements – not artistry – determine which country records will migrate from vinyl to compact discs. As a result, Leona Williams's music has eluded reissue. This collection restores Leona's complete Mercury output, which she considers her finest moments on record. Besides tracks from her never-released first album, it includes Heart to Heart Mind, a project with Merle Haggard and the Strangers that was shamefully unappreciated upon its initial release.

The ninth of twelve children, Leona Belle Helton was born January 7, 1943 in Vienna, Missouri, a small town in the foothills of the Ozarks. Her father, Vernon Helton, was employed as a road maintenance worker for Maries County; her mother, Dorothy Green Helton, remained at home to care of the children. Music was an integral part of the household. Vernon was a respected fiddler, while Dorothy played piano and organ, and often provided a clawhammer banjo backing to Vernon's performances at local dances and contests. 

About half the Helton children picked up an instrument; young Leona started strumming a mandolin by age five. "I started playing behind him on the fiddle and stuff," Leona recalled. "As I got older, I was about nine years old, I could play rhythm guitar pretty good." She became part of the Helton Family Band, which played dances and fairs throughout the Ozarks.

Leona loved to hear country music over KWOS in Jefferson City and KSAL in Fulton. "I knew exactly what time they had country music, and I would just turn my radio on at that time," she said. "When I was getting to be nine, ten, twelve years old, I loved Kitty Wells. We were in the country and were real poor and didn't have nothing. I told my mom one time I was about nine years old, 'I don't know why I couldn't have been born in Tennessee and been Kitty Wells's little girl!' And my mom kept that in her memory, you know! You never think about hurting her feelings."

Leona ended her formal education after completing eighth grade. "We lived a pretty good ways from town," she said, "five miles, actually. So when you get out of the eighth grade in this little country one-room schoolhouse, it's too far to walk to town. They didn't have schoolbusses that came down our road to pick us up. My dad had to go to work and he couldn't take us to town every day to school, so I didn't go to high school. I got me a job and I started taking care of some people's kids."
