Vintage Country Vinyl - Hank Williams
My witterings as to the brilliance of Hank Williams is usually reserved for his birthday on New Year's Day.
But really that is too long to wait.
I shamefully currently only have one Hank Williams album on vinyl namely a cheap and cheerful compilation The Very Best of Hank Williams Snr Volume 1.
Please rest assured that Jr will never appear on these pages although III might
Sixteen songs and I could have chosen any of them to feature today such was the quality of the man.
The quantity and quality of the material he produced before his death at the age of just 29 is simply staggering.
With the possible exception of Dylan the greatest and most influential artist in popular music.
The Hillbilly Shakespeare indeed
More VCV next Friday
