Album Review

Low Down Blues is a mid-priced compilation of Hank Williams' bluesiest material. The 16-track collection features classics like "Honky Tonk Blues," "Lovesick Blues," "Moanin' the Blues," and "Long Gone Lonesome Blues," as well as five demo recordings. As a sampler, Low Down Blues is fine — it offers a different perspective on Hank than most other collections and it was thoughtfully compiled — but serious collectors will want to stick with the more complete compilations and casual fans will be better-served by either 40 Greatest Hits or 24 Greatest Hits. And that means Low Down Blues essentially doesn't have an audience. It's a nice collection, but it essentially purposeless. Only collectors who enjoying hearing the subtle differences in different sequencing will find Low Down Blues essential.
