"Mitch Miller said to Wesley Rose, 'Ol' Hank's done it again, hasn't he?' and Wesley said, 'That was Curley Williams who wrote 'Half As Much,' and Mitch Miller said, 'Who's Curley Williams?' and Wesley said, 'A guy that's been on your label about seven years.'" And there, in a nutshell, was Curley Williams’ dilemma. He was on the Grand Ole Opry before Hank Williams; he was on the Louisiana Hayride before Hank; he was a recording star before Hank - but few remember him today, except for writing one of Hank’s biggest hits, "Half As Much." This first of two volumes is a retrospective of the underrated western swing star Curley Williams. Rarely reissued on microgroove, and never reissued on CD, this is a treasure trove of sharp-tip western swing.
