    ProducerLeon Russell

    During the heyday of his '70s-era popularity, Leon Russell took on the alter-ego of Hank Wilson and intermittently cut pure country and bluegrass albums under that name as a nod to his own Okie roots. There were four of them, beginning with HANK WILSON'S BACK (1973), followed by HANK WILSON, VOL. 2 (1984), LEGEND IN MY TIME (1998), and RHYTHM & BLUEGRASS (2001). This 22-cut compilation assembles tracks from all of these recordings and is truly a generous sampling of the best of them. What is easily revealed here is that the Hank Wilson alter-ego, with its not-so-subtle references to Hank Williams, was no gimmick. Each of these recordings is solid in its own right and Russell is a tremendous interpreter--and sometimes radical rearranger--of the original material. For those in the know, it's a killer mixtape with three unreleased bonus cuts, including reads of "San Antonio Rose," "You Win Again," and "The Ballad of Jed Clampett."
