Details

[Edit]

Hank Williams was among the greatest country & western singers of all time. Others have had longer careers, and some came before him with sizable talents of their own, but Williams has a catalog that's beyond peer. That his professional recording career lasted for just six-plus years—before he died at age 29 in the back of a car on New Year's Day 1953 on his way to yet another show—makes the legend ever more fascinating. But it's the beauty of songs such as "Wedding Bells," "Lost Highway," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Cold, Cold Heart," "I Can't Help It," "Your Cheating Heart," "You Win Again," and so many others that served as the template for Williams' extraordinary voice, which simply cries with overwhelming emotion. These recordings are the original performances, with "Weary Blues from Waitin'" receiving a tasteful overdubbing that's still within the confines of late-'40s/early-'50s hard country. This may be the single sharpest assembly of classic tracks. However, don't be surprised if you find yourself wishing you had the The Complete Hank Williams, since the quality of his recordings was outstanding from a very early date and continued that way until his death.
