Distilling a country legend like Hank Williams down to 12 tracks isn't easy, and obviously it means that a good number of classic tracks aren't here. A more in-depth introduction is 40 Greatest Hits, but if you're comfortable with this condensed edition, there isn't a dog in the bunch. It's a bit of an upbeat collection, despite the heartbroken sentiment of "Why Don't You Love Me" and "Long Gone Lonesome Blues." "Hey, Good Lookin'" "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)," "Move It on Over," and "Settin' the Woods on Fire" stand as late-'40s, early-'50s country music's contribution to rock 'n' roll. The Drifting Cowboys, despite lacking a drummer, play a strongly rhythmic and economical backing, while Williams' voice breaks in all the right places. "Lost Highway" alone is an iconic masterpiece. "I Saw the Light" represents Williams' spiritual side. The man is a legend for many reasons. Here are 12 of them.
