The Legend Begins
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Time-Life Music
This three-disc set, featuring previously unreleased gems, is a boon for Hank fans. The bulk of the collection consists of live takes from Williams' syndicated radio series, the Health and Happiness Show. The quality of these recordings, which include staples "Lovesick Blues," "Happy Rovin' Cowboy" and "Lost Highway," is impressive. The Rare and Unreleased disc surprises with "Fan It" and "Alexander's Ragtime Band," songs Williams recorded at age 15. Engineers were able to restore the decades-old acetate, and the scratches and pops make you feel like you're listening to a part of history.
