Instant Living

Genre: Pop; Producer (group): Bar/None

A 1949 Hank Williams radio show was the inspiration for the Hoboken, N.J. quartet Health &amp Happiness Show’s moniker, and their down-home mid-tempo ballads hint at his musical influence — along with that of The Band and some of the Stones’ woodsier moments.
