Historic Hank Williams Box Set
An historic box set CD from Time Life, Hank Williams The Unreleased Recordings, will hit retail stores Tuesday, Oct. 28.
The set features 143 recordings of Hank’s’ performances on the 1951 WSM radio show sponsored by Mother Best’s Flour. The first installment will showcase 54 of those recordings. The remaining 89 songs will be released in separate installments during the next three years, with fans getting to hear Hank as never before.
On the first release, fans can hear the legendary Hank performing exciting, new versions of his classic hits, including, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Cold, Cold Heart,” and “Hey, Good Lookin’,” as well as songs he never recorded commercially, including, “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain,” “Cherokee Boogie” and “Cool Water.” Hank’s daughter Jett Williams notes, “These recordings are such a great snapshot of my dad, Hank Williams. For fans, it will be like a trip back to 1951.”
