Hank Williams – The Anthology (3cd set)

Artist: Hank Williams
Format: 3CD
Bar-code: 5060143490347
Cat No: NOT3CD034


It seems astonishing today that the writer of some of country music’s best-loved and most enduring songs, Hank Williams, died after a recording career lasting less than six years. But the writer of such country standards as ‘Your Cheatin’ Heart’, ‘Hey, Good Lookin’’, ‘I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still In Love With You)’ and ‘Jambalaya (On The Bayou)’ did indeed die from a heart attack in 1953 while a passenger in the back seat of his Cadillac. He was just 29.  But, as is often the case, his early death enhanced his legend. He was close to the farming roots that Nashville was soon to leave behind, but was the creator of many enduring songs which have become standards today, performed by such luminaries as Linda Ronstadt and Bob Dylan. It is impossible to name each well-known song included on this 3CD collection – so just sit down and let the hits roll over you!
