Hank Williams: I Saw the Light: The Unreleased Recordings (Vinyl)

               HANK WILLIAMS VINYL LP FOR COLLECTORS!

STEP BACK IN TIME WITH MUSICAL TREASURES FROM A COUNTRY MUSIC ICON

At the peak of his career in 1951, Hank Williams recorded 143 songs for the Mother’s Best Flour Company. Hank performed with his regular studio band and recorded his hits as well as songs he never recorded commercially anywhere else. From this amazing legacy, Time Life is proud to release the vinyl version of HANK WILLIAMS: I SAW THE LIGHT: THE UNRELEASED RECORDINGS, a historic collection drawn from the very best of the Mother’s Best recordings. It’s a rare, informal glimpse into the heart and soul of country music’s greatest star who passed away on New Year’s Day 1953, at age 29.

These recordings give us a deeper insight into Hank’s life and music, showing a personality that had never been revealed previously. In this casual setting, it showcases his humor as he jokes with his band and the emcee, his love of music as he talks unguardedly about his favorite songs, and captures him in his prime. These shows are the first truly three-dimensional portrait of one of the giants of American music. What emerges is a full, rounded portrait of Williams at his creative and commercial peak.

You’ll get “Cold, Cold Heart,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” the Williams-composed gospel classic “I Saw the Light” and more!

The Lost Concerts: Limited Collector’s Edition

The Lost Concerts: Limited Collector’s Edition

  • Record Label: Ada Global
  • Catalog#: D 27462
  • Country Of Release: NLD
  • Year Of Release: 2012
  • Notes: 1952 Shows From Niagara Falls & Sunset Park

These days, live albums are commonplace, but in 1952, the last year of Hank Williams’ short life, they weren’t. Recording was in its infancy. Fortunately, two of Hank Williams’ shows from 1952 survived, capturing him at or near his peak. You would never guess from the vibrancy of these performances that he had just a few months to live. Hank is rivetingly on form, plus they also capture his skilled handling of an audience. It’s easy to sense that, although just 28 years old, he’d been doing this a long time.

These two shows were recorded six weeks apart in May and July of 1952, and they feature his biggest hits including “Hey Good Looking,” “Jambalaya,” “I Saw the Light,” “Lovesick Blues,” “Cold, Cold Heart,” and “Fire On the Mountain.” It also includes “Are You Walkin'” and “A Talkin’ for the Lord” — the only know recording of this song.

Radio Interview: On September 14, 1951, in Wichita, Kansas, Mack Sanders (DJ, singer, station owner and later Country Radio Hall of Fame inductee) welcomed Hank into KFBI’s studios for an interview.

List Price: $ 13.98
