At the peak of his career in 1951, Hank Williams recorded 143 songs for the Mother’s Best Flour Company. Hank performed with his regular studio band and recorded his hits as well as songs he never recorded commercially anywhere else. From this amazing legacy, Time Life is proud to release the vinyl version of Hank Williams: I Saw The Light: The Unreleased Recording, a historic collection drawn from the very best of the Mother’s Best recordings. It’s a rare, informal glimpse into the heart and soul of country music’s greatest star who passed away on New Year’s Day 1953, at age 29.
These recordings give us a deeper insight into Hank’s life and music, showing a personality that had never been revealed previously. In this casual setting, it showcases his humor as he jokes with his band and the emcee, his love of music as he talks unguardedly about his favorite songs, and captures him in his prime. These shows are the first truly three-dimensional portrait of one of the giants of American music. What emerges is a full, rounded portrait of Williams at his creative and commercial peak.
You’ll get "Cold, Cold Heart," "I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry," the Williams-composed gospel classic "I Saw the Light" and more!
