When Hank Williams sails into "(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle," the first cut on this compilation of roll-in-misery blues, you know it's going to be a two-bottle night. Can anything else on earth sound this mournful? Maybe just "Ramblin' Man," another cut from these 16 heartfelt tracks, some of which find Hank stylistically borrowing from Ernest Tubb and Jimmie Rodgers. With the weight of the world on his bony shoulders, it's no wonder Hank slouched when he sang. Yet such tunes as "Moanin' the Blues" and "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It" also carry an undertone of celebration. "Nobody had the talent to make suffering enjoyable like Hank Williams," Kris Kristofferson once observed. You can say that again, Hoss. --Alanna Nash

"Who said a white man couldn't sing the blues? Whoever said that obviously never heard Hank Williams. Hank built upon the foundation of blues that Jimmie Rodgers laid and made into a style uniquely all his own. Stylistically, Hank was much different than Rodgers, but the basic foundation of Hank's blues stems straight from Rodgers.
Many of these songs are non-session demos which will appeal to both casual fans and those who know Hank already. Many of Hank's studio recordings were "polished" which tended to take the edge off of it, but when a man picks up the guitar and that guitar becomes an extension of the man, man & instrument team to give you out and out raw blues. Hank let music speak his feelings-no wonder he is called the Hillbilly Shakespeare."
