The producers of this landmark Hank Williams collection made the misleading choice of using a bronze bust of the singer for the cover image; the statue makes Williams seem like a museum relic, but when this compilation was released in 1970, his music was more relevant than ever. Merle Haggard was at the top of the charts thanks to a wining formula that owed a lot to Williams’ no-nonsense mode of songwriting, while Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson were about the change the face of country by re-injecting it with the outlaw spirit of these 20 songs. Moreover, country music was beginning to infiltrate the rock scene, as The Byrds, The Rolling Stones, and the Flying Burrito Brothers began to look toward Williams for inspiration. It’s not hard to see why these 20 Williams tracks have had such an enduring influence; taken together, they form a manual for songwriters. Williams was unmatched in his ability to speak directly to the listener, and his songs feel immovably basic and ineffable as the same time. Without “Lost Highway” or “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive,” this collection isn’t all the Williams you need, but it stands as a concise summation of his distinctive power as a singer, a songwriter, and a bandleader.
