  • Credits

    Personnel: Hank Williams (vocals, guitar).
    Following the death of Hank Williams in 1953, MGM tried different ploys to keep his recordings selling, including overdubbing band backing on a series of song demos Williams had recorded for his song publisher and, in the '60s, adding incredibly cheesy string section arrangements to several of his singles, a dozen of which are included here. Needless to say, the string bits were ill-conceived at best and idiotic at worst, as a quick listen to classic honky tonk sides like "Lovesick Blues" or "You Win Again" makes apparent. Why anyone at MGM thought this orchestral overdubbing thing was a good idea remains baffling all these years later. ~ Steve Leggett
