Hank Williams: The Complete Mother's Best Recordings...Plus!
by Various Artists
Released: May 2011
Label: Time-Life Music
By the early 1950s, Hank Williams was a star. But the singer knew his popular syndicated radio show, sponsored by flour and feed maker Mother's Best, helped him reach stardom, so when he went out on tour, he pre-recorded his radio shows. The Complete Mother's Best... Plus are these shows -- 73 of them in all. The sound has been restored to such quality its producers were nominated for a Grammy Award, but it's not just the sound that sells this collection: Also included are conversations between Hank, his band and the host, which shine a light on Williams' sharp personality and quick wit.
