2019 remastered 3LP set!

Triple gatefold jacket

New liner notes from Colin Escott

Drawn from the best of Hank's Mother's Best radio show recordings

3LP set featuring the best of Hank's Mother's Best radio show transcription. Includes "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain," "I'll Fly Away," "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You," "When The Saints Go Marching In" and more. 

The performances heard here were recorded on acetate discs (meant to be played only once or twice) that were shelved in 1951, and they gradually faded from common memory. In the 1970s the acetates were saved from the trash by a WSM employee and eventually given to Hank's daughter, Jett. On behalf of the estate, Jett fought an eight-year battle to establish ownership, finally winning the right to release these recordings in partnership with Time Life.

Hank Williams' career was brief and incendiary. Most of those fortunate enough to have seen him in concert say that he was a captivating performer. Now, 60 years after his passing, we finally get a sense of Hank Williams onstage, adding another dimension to our scant knowledge of him. Still popular today, he's a giant in American music.
