27 May 1939, Floydada, Texas, USA. Williams father was a mechanic whose job took him to other regions and much of his childhood was spent in Corpus Christi, Texas. Williams mother played guitar and he grew up listening to country music. He and Lofton Kline formed a semi-professional folk group called the Strangers Two, and then, with the addition of Susan Taylor, they became the Pozo-Seco Singers, the phrase being a geological term to denote a dry well. Handled by Bob Dylans manager Albert Grossman, they had US pop hits with Time, I Can Make It With You and Look What Youve Done. Following Lofton Klines departure, they employed several replacements, resulting in a lack of direction, and they were as likely to record Green Green Grass Of Home as Strawberry Fields Forever. After Williams had failed to turn the trio towards country music, they disbanded in 1971.
