Hank Williams recorded around 170 songs between 1946 and his untimely death at the age of 30 in 1953. Subtitled “An Introduction To Hank Williams”, this album isn’t a greatest hits, omitting, as it does, many of his most successful releases. Instead, it concentrates on the poetic and reflective side of his output, ultimately the touchstone for his reputation as “the hillbilly Shakespeare”. As such, it succeeds in conveying the essence of a unique talent and a classic of country music.
