Product Notes

Here's the ultimate Hank Williams collectors' item timed to coincide with what would have been his 75th birthday. Throughout his life, Hank pitched songs to other artists that he never recorded himself. Now, for the first time, here are 16 songs that Hank wrote but never recorded commercially performed by the artists who originally recorded them. These are the rarest of all Hank's songs, and they include Rosco Hankins performing Hank's very first published song from 1943, I'm Praying For The Day When Peace Will Come; Hank William's Alabama bandmember Braxton Shooford performing a song they wrote together, Rockin' Chair Daddy; and Jimmie Davis singing two of the songs that he and Hank Williams wrote together, Bayou Pon-Pon and Forever Is A Long, Long Time. Also included are Rex Griffin's rarely heard version of Lovesick Blues that Hank copied note-for-note, and 12 Hank Williams tribute songs recorded in the years immediately after his death, by such artists as Johnnie & Jack, Ernest Tubb, the Cochran Brothers, Marvin Rainwater, and Jimmie Skinner.
