|Countrys first superstar|
What more can be said about Hank Williams that hasn't already been said?He was the first megastar who set the stage for future generations of country stars. Hearing these songs as they sounded when they first came out on 78s is an exciting listen into how country has evolved over a half-century. The recording techniques were very primitive by today's standards, the bass is barely audible, and no drums were used (except in "Kaw-Liga"), but that's part of what makes these recordings so historical. The musicianship was top-notch, the songs are first rate (most penned by Williams himself), and the emotional content is heart-wrenchingly excellent. Every country singer today owes Hank Williams the praise he deserves. The first and greatest!
