In The Mood For Hank


Hank Thompson, a man destined to be one of Country music's greatest performers, was signed in late 1947 by the up-and-coming CAPITOL label, following a recommendation by Tex Ritter. At the beginning of the next year, his "Humpty Dumpty Heart" hit number two in the Country charts and Hank Thompson was well on his way to become one of the biggest stars of the following two decades.Undoubtedly, the subsequently much covered "The Wild Side Of Life" became his best-known hit in 1952, but it certainly was not alone: the charts were peppered with songs like "What Are We Gonna Do About The Moonlight", "I Find You Cheatin' On Me", "A Fooler, A Faker", "Rub-A-Dub-Dub", "Breakin' In Another Heart", and so on.Presented here is a not-so-wild side of Hank Thompson, a man who effortlessly made the transition from Western swing to Honky Tonk, and continued to progress to whatever style the market required in later years.
