The Unreleased Recordings

After years of battles over ownership of the 72 fifteen-minute programs Hank Williams recorded for Nashville radio station WSM in 1951, the first in a planned series of releases drawn from this treasure trove is blessedly with us at last. Spread across three discs, the 54 superbly recorded, shockingly fresh tracks on The Unreleased Recordings present a Hank Williams that is engaged, passionate, funny, complex and vividly present. For fans of classic country—or most any music lover, for that matter—The Unreleased Recordings is essential listening.
