  • Credits

    This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
    Solo performer: Hank Williams (vocals, acoustic guitar).
    Compilation producers: Colin Escott, Kira Florita.
    Recorded between 1949 & August 1952. Includes liner notes by William Gay and Colin Escott.
    A revelatory collection of songwriting demos and rare early solo radio appearances, most of which had never appeared in un-dubbed form until 1998's complete Williams box set. Highlights include an early take on "Honky Tonk Blues," with an extra verse that didn't make it onto the hit studio version, an eerie cover of the Sons of the Pioneers' "Cool Water" (one of the few cowboy songs Williams ever recorded), and a run-through of "Kaw-Liga," with several false starts and some studio chatter. Bonuses on the enhanced portion of the CD include a screensaver, a link to the official Williams website, some brief audio clips of Williams and his ex-wife Audrey, plus lyrics and photos.

    CMJ (9/11/00, p.33) - "...[He] stands tall accompanied by his whiskey-weary voice and earthy acoustic guitar..."
    Dirty Linen (4-5/01, p.73) - "...The delivery is stark and intimate and demonstrates the emotional depth Williams was able to invest in his performances..."
