Waylon Sings Hank Williams

[Review continued from Nashville Rebel]

Meanwhile, Waylon Sings Hank Williams represents the unearthing of an album’s worth of Hank Williams covers the late legend recorded in 1985. The formula suggested in the title is so simple and foolproof that it can’t help but be a minor pleasure—although a slick, sterile ’80s production sheen robs these tracks of sorely missed grit. Waylon Sings Hank Williams will make a nice stocking stuffer, but Nashville Rebel is still what serious country fans are really gonna want for Christmas.
