Editors’ Notes

It’s impossible to get closer to the heart of Hank Williams’ work than this collection, which finds the country legend armed only with his acoustic guitar and plaintive pipes. Most of the tracks were cut as demos, and hearing Hank skirting the edge of heaven on the spiritual “Thy Burdens Are Greater Than Mine” or hurtling toward hell on the wastrel’s lament “Honky Tonk Blues” in such stripped-down settings underscores his almost preternatural power as both singer and songwriter.

Customer Reviews

Not as known, but no less as good

Some of the songs on this cd are new to even major Hank fans. However, they are still as entertaining as Hanks' other songs. These songs are as clear as those recorded in a big studio, but the pops and cracks make them feel more intimate and more well, Hank Williams. My two favorite songs are "Tennessee Border" and "Please Don't Let Me Love You." I really enjoyed this.

this is raw

My favorite Hank record. Hank is one of my favorite country western singers ever. This is the best thing he's ever put out musically. Real raw music is just a blues singer with his guitar, playin' away. Hank Sr. rules.

Hank Williams: Alone with his guitar

Scuse me, iTunes, but nobody rates Hank, Hank rates you: If you can’t dig him, there’s something wrong with you. I give it six stars out of five possible. No, make that eight.

Hank Williams is the father of contemporary country music. He was a superstar by the age of 25; he was dead at the age of 29.

Hank wrote a body of songs that became popular classics, and his direct, emotional lyrics and vocals became the standard for most popular performers. He lived a life as troubled and reckless as that depicted in his songs. Hiram King...
