1 - WILLIAMS, HANK - 20 GREATEST HITS, VOLUME 1 - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Widely regarded as the father of modern country music, Hank Williams hit superstar status at the age of 25 andwas to enjoy four brief years in the spotlight before his death from heart failure. During that spell Hank recordedvociferously, with almost as many recordings appearing after his death as he had enjoyed during his lifetime.More important than the quantity was the quality; many of the recordings that appeared after his death were theequal, if not better, than those that had appeared in his heyday. Gathering together a twenty track greatest hits is therefore an almost impossible task, so much so that we haveopted to split them into two releases - watch out for a further twenty greatest hits from Hank Williams in the comingmonths.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Move It On Over 02. A Mansion On A Hill 03. Lovesick Blues 04. Wedding Bells 05. Mind Your Own Business 06. Youre Gonna Change (or Im Gonna Leave) 07. Lost Highway 08. My Buckets Got A Hole In It 09. Im So Lonesome I Could Cry 10. I Just Dont Like This Kind Of Living 11. Long Gone Lonesome Blues 12. My Son Calls Another Man Daddy 13. Why Dont You Love Me 14. Why Should We Try Anymore 15. Theyll Never Take Her Love From Me 16. Moanin The Blues 17. Nobodys Lonesome For Me 18. Cold Cold Heart 19. Dear John 20. Howlin At The Moon

4 - WILLIAMS, HANK - I'M A LONG GONE DADDY, THE HONKY TONKIN' SOUND OF. - (7") 
SLEAZY


In this 6 EPs collection you will find 24 songs recorded between 1947 and 1952 by Hank Williams that summarize that catharsis. The studio recordings are from his 1947 to 1950 period, when Hank didnt record with his band the Driftin Cowboys and Fred Rose was responsible for the studio work. During this stage Hanks music kept a special point of rawness and spontaneity in the way it was performed and this was key for his songs to touch people in an especially sincere way. In the last EP youll also find some demo and live performances from his last years that show his mastery as composer and entertainment.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Calling You 02. Pan American 03. Move It On Over 04. I Saw The Light DISC #2: 01. Six More Miles (to The Graveyard) 02. Im Satisfies With You 03. Rootie Tootie 04. I Cant Get You Off My Mind DISC #3: 01. Im A Long Gone Daddy 02. The Blues Come Around 03. Ill Be A Bachelor Till I Die 04. Lovesick Blues DISC #4: 01. Lost Highway 02. Honky Tonk Blues (1949 Take) 03. Mind Your Own Business 04. Youre Gonna Change (or Im Gonna Leave) DISC #5: 01. I Just Dont Like This Kind Of Livin 02. My Buckets Got A Hole In It (alt.

5 - WILLIAMS, HANK - MONTGOMERY - (LP) 
DOXY


A collection of rare early private recordings, radio airchecks and demos by the man who single-handedly penned many of today's country music standards. The first recording featured here, "Happy Rovin' Cowboy", is from 1939, when Hank was just 16 years old. He began making his own private recordings in recording booths, often simulating radio show performances in an attempt to impress a real station. Hank got his first gig at a real station, however, by playing outside the entrance WFSA in Montgomery until they finally invited him to play inside. Soon "The Singin' Kid", as he was then known, became so popular with local audiences that he got his own show, dropped out of high school, formed his own band and began touring all over the South. Hank was soon fired from WFSA, however, for "habitual drunkenness", but this did little to stall his career. If anything, it was WWII that slowed the entire recording industry down, but nonetheless Hank still managed to get some demos out during this time, many of which are included here. By 1948, Hank had his first massive country hit and was off to greener pastures, namely Shreveport, Louisiana and the legendary Louisiana Hayride.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Happy Rovin Cowboy (1939-1940) 02. Freight Train Blues (late 1940) 03. San Antonio Rose (late 1940) 04. Im Not Coming Home Any More (4/07/1942) 05. I Aint Gonna Love You Any More (circa 1942) 06. Wont You Sometimes Think Of Me (1947-1948) 07. Why Should I Cry (1947-1948) 08. I Watched My Dream World Crumble Like Clay (1947-1948) 09. I Told A Lie To My Heart (1947-1948) 10. Mother Is Gone (1947-1948) 11. In My Dreams You Still Belong To Me (1947-1948) 12. Were Getting Closer To The Grave Each Day (1949) 13. (im) Going Home (1949) 14. Calling You (1947-1948) 15. Pan American (dec. 1946) 16. Wealth Wont Save Your Soul (dec 1946) 17. Honky Tonk Blues (1947-1948) 18. A Home In Heaven (1947-1948) 19. You Broke Your Own Heart (with Band - 1947) 20. Im So Tired Of It All (1947)

6 - WILLIAMS, HANK - NASHVILLE SESSIONS - (LP) 
DOXY


In 1951 Hank Williams was ready for the big time, and in country music that meant Nashville, Tennessee, The Grand Ole Opry, and particularly the Acuff-Rose Music company. Acuff-Rose, run by Grand Ole Opry Star Roy Acuff and professional song writer Fred Rose, was the first Nashville-based music company and the mainstay of country music for many years. Here, under Roses tutelage, Hanks true talent began to shine and his songs just got better and better. This double LP is a collection of Hanks work from 1949-1952, with disc one being a collection of demos recorded during Hanks brief time in Nashville, including alternate versions of the three songs-Kaw-Liga," "Your Cheatin Heart," and "Jambalaya"-that Hank took to the top of the charts. The demo version of "Kaw-Liga", which Hank co-wrote with Fred Rose, is very different from the one he eventually released, a welcome surprise for any fan! It also includes versions of "I Could Never Be Ashamed of You", written for his shotgun bride, Billie Jean; an amazing and foreboding version of "Angel of Death", suggesting that Hank knew full well that he didnt have much time left; and "Log Train", a song written for Hanks dad, and chronicling his early boyhood in logging camps. "How To Write Folk And Western Music To Sell", was a booklet published in 1951, and while Hank did not actually write the text, he did lend his name to the project and market it on radio stations across the South. Disc two features a collection of songs Hank sold to other artists during this period (with one example being "A Tear in My Beer", which Hank gave to Big Bill Lister, but which just sat around in an attic until it was discovered by Listers son in 1988), and rare radio performances from 1950, including the "Farmer Jim" show in Jackson, Mississippi and the March of Dimes broadcast. Includes detailed liner notes.

TRACKLISTING: 01. California Zephyr 02. Your Cheatin Heart 03. You Better Keep It On Your Mind 04. How Can You Refuse Him Now 05. Low Down Blues 06. Ten Little Numbers 07. Thy Burdens Are Greater Than Mine 08. Last Night I Dreamed Of Heaven 09. I Aint Got Nothin But Time 10. Message To My Mother 11. Fool About You 12. Im Going Home 13. Jambalaya (on The Bayou) 14. Ready To Go Home 15. Kaw-liga 16. I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You 17. Angel Of Death 18. All The Love I Ever Had 19. Were Getting Closer To The Grave Each Day 20. The Log Train 21. How To Write Folk And Western Music To Sell With Grant Turner DISC #2: 01. Theres A Tear In My Beer 02. The Alabama Waltz 03. Jesus Died For Me With Audrey Williams 04. A Teardrop On A Rose 05. Jesus Is Calling 06. Wearin Out Your Walking Shoes 07. When The Book Of Life Is Read 08. Theres Nothing As Sweet As My Baby 09. (im Gonna) Sing, Sing, Sing 10. I Cant Escape From You 11. Weary Blues From Waitin 12. Are You Walkin And A Talkin For The Lord 13. If Youll Be A Baby To Me 14. Neath A Cold Gray Tomb Of Stone 15. Lost Highway 16. Im A Long Gone Daddy 17. Long Gone Lonesome Blues 18. Help Me Understand 19. When God Dips His Love In My Heart

7 - WILLIAMS, HANK - RAMBLIN' MAN - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Despite his relatively short time in the music business, being found dead at the age of just 29, Hank Williams had a great influence on country music. Ramblin Man became something of a signature tune, becoming a major hit in 1951, even though his professional and personal life was beginning to unravel owing to drug and alcohol problems. As a songwriter and performer, however, his legacy has remained intact, thanks to a succession of recordings that have been periodically released since his death in 1953.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ramblin Man 02. My Son Calls Another Man Daddy 03. I Cant Escape From Me 04. Nobodys Lonesome For Me 05. I Cant Help It 06. Therell Be No Teardrops Tonight 07. Lonesome Whistle 08. I Just Dont Like This Kind Of Livin 09. Take These Chains From My Heart 10. Why Dont You Love Me 11. My Heart Would Know 12. Youre Gonna Change (or Im Gonna Leave)

9 - WILLIAMS, HANK - SHREVEPORT SESSIONS (48-49) - (LP) 
DOXY


When Hank arrived in Shreveport in August 1948, KWKH's now legendary Louisiana Hayride (but at the time just one of many popular radio barn dance's being broadcast across the South) had yet to attract a major act (Elvis, Johnny Cash, Faron Young, Webb Pierce, Jim Reeves, and Slim Whitman all came after), and Hank himself was barely known outside of Montgomery. Hank managed nonetheless to get a spot on the Hayride (sponsored by the Johnnie Fair syrup company), which he held down until May of the following year, when the success of "Lovesick Blues" meant that Hank was on to the bright lights of Nashville. During this period (Aug. 1948-May 1949) Hank made a number of recordings, including several acetates that were recorded for KWKH to broadcast when Hank was away on other engagements. This material, almost entirely comprised of Hank singing other artists' songs, gives fans an enlightening glimpse of Hank's many influences and how his style developed over the years. However, Hank also recorded acetates of his own material while he was with the Hayride, mostly with Curley Williams, which he sent over to Acuff-Rose in Nashville, and these are also included here.

TRACKLISTING: 01. You Caused It All By Telling Lies 02. Faded Love And Winter Roses 03. Please Dont Let Me Love You 04. Theres No Room In My Heart For The Blues 05. I Wish I Had A Nickel 06. The Waltz Of The Wind 07. At The First Fall Of Snow 08. Leave Me Alone With The Blues 09. Im Free At Last 10. Blue Love (in My Heart) 11. It Just Dont Matter Now 12. Little Paper Boy 13. Someday Youll Call My Name 14. The Battle Of Armageddon 15. No One Will Ever Know 16. With Tears In My Eyes 17. Thank God 18. Rock My Cradle Once Again 19. Dont Do It Darling 20. Rockinchair Money 21. Cool Water DISC #2: 01. Tennessee Border 02. First Year Blues 03. My Main Trial Is Yet To Come 04. Wait For The Light To Shine 05. We Live In Two Different Worlds 06. Roly Poly 07. Swing Wide Your Gate Of Love 08. Dixie Cannonball 09. Sundown And Sorrow 10. The Devils Train 11. The Old Home 12. Alone And Forsaken 13. Heaven Holds All My Treasures 14. Lost On The River 15. A House Of Gold 16. Singing Waterfall 17. Dear Brother With Kitty Wells And Johnnie Wright 18. Neath A Cold Gray Tomb Of Stone 19. Time Has Proven I Was Wrong With Curley Williams 20. No, Not Now With Curley Williams 21. When Youre Tired Of Breaking Others Hearts 22. Honey, Do You Love Me, Huh

12 - WILLIAMS, HANK - SIX MORE MILES TO THE GRAVEYARD - (LP) 
DOXY


Once in a great while a truly superlative musical talent comes along, it only happens a handful of times per century, and one of those times "it" was Hank Williams. Despite his swift and total rise to superstardom by the age of 25, by 29 he was dead in the back of his own Cadillac...but it is what happened in the interim that made all the difference. While America, returning victorious from the War in 1945, attempted to create an image of a invincibility, wealth and power, there was a guy with a guitar from a place called "Wrong Side of the Tracks" who had another story to tell, a story that, amid all the propaganda and ticker tape parades, Americans could relate to and-judging from the record sales-obviously wanted to hear. From 1947 to 1953 Hank Williams recorded 66 songs under his own name, of which 37 were hits, enough to last country music stations for the next half a century and beyond. Songs like "Cold Cold Heart", "Hey Good Lookin'", "Your Cheatin' Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", and many more, have become standards in American music. These 6 LPs: I Saw The Light, Honky Tonkin', Sing Me A Blue Song, Ramblin' Man, Sings, and Montgomery, were originally mostly released in the 10" format between 1954 and 1959 (and were themselves a collection of various studio sessions and previous 8s), except for Sings, originally released in 1951, and Montgomery, a collection of rare early private recordings, radio airchecks and demos, with the earliest recording being "Happy Rovin' Cowboy", from 1939, when Hank was just 16 years old. Now collected together in a luxury edition box set!Contains the Albums: I Saw The Light (GREEN VINYL), Honky Tonkin' (BLUE VINYL), Sing Me A Blue Song (GREY VINYL), Ramblin' Man (CLEAR BLUE VINYL), Sings (ORANGE VINYL), Montgomery (WHITE VINYL)
