COVER NOTES:



HANK THOMPSON IS THE KING OF HONKY TONK SWING. HIS INNOVATIVE NEW COUNTRY STYLE COMBINED THE WESTERN SWING MUSIC FROM THE 1930S WITH THE HONKY TONK MUSIC OF THE 1940S. HANK GOT HIS EARLY INSPIRATION FROM THE COWBOY AND SINGING LEGEND, GENE AUTRY. HANK WAS ALREADY A TOP-NOTCH HARMONICA PLAYER WHEN HE FIRST SAW AUTRY PERFORM. AFTERWARDS, HANK BOUGHT A GUITAR AND ADDED ANOTHER INSTRUMENT TO HIS REPERTOIRE. WHEN HE GOT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, HANK SERVED IN THE NAVY DURING WWII UNTIL 1945. IN 1946, HE FORMED HIS BAND, THE BRAZOS VALLEY BOYS. HANK THOMPSON HAS MAINTAINED HIS SAME BAND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. IN 1952, HANK RECORDED HIS FIRST #1 HIT, THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE. THE SONG IS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE ON OF COUNTRY MUSICS TRUE CLASSICS. FROM 1952 THRU 1982, HANK THOMPSON HAD SONGS ON THE RECORD CHARTS EVERY YEAR EXCEPT 1962. THREE DECADES OF CONSISTENT HITS SUCH AS HONKY TONK GIRL (1954), A SIX PACK TO GO (1960), AND SMOKY THE BAR (1968) ARE A POWERFUL TESTIMONY TO HANKS POPULARITY. OVER THE YEARS HANK THOMPSONS MUSIC SALES HAVE REACHED 60 MILLION DOLLARS. IN 1979, HANK THOMPSON RECORDED THE SONGS INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION ON THE STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT AT THE GUSTO/KING STUDIOS IN NASHVILLE, TN. AS A RESULT, YOULL FIND THAT THESE RECORDINGS SOUND BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE. IT IS EASY TO SEE WHY HE IS ONE OF COUNTRY MUSICS MOST ENDURING STARS. FOR HIS MANY ACHIEVEMENTS, HANK THOMPSON WAS INDUCTED INTO THE COUNTRYY MUSIC HALL OF FAME IN 1989.
