There are Better albums out there

"While this release by Curb records encompasses quite a large chunk of Hank Jr's career, the sound is less than perfect (to say the least). The CD begins with Hank Jr's copy of his father's classics "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "You Win Again", then a few of Jr's earlier Nashville Sound numbers "You Win Again" and "Rainin' in My Heart". While these are fairly representative of his early career, the sound quality is poor, and nothing like the originally released albums which contained these songs. But, then we take a a large jump into the rowdier Hank Jr with such hits as "Family Tradition", "Texas Women", and "Dixie On My Mind". I'm not sure where Curb got their master tapes, but there's a world of difference between the first 7 numbers and the last 13. Personally, I think you'd do better purchsing the original "Greatest Hits" CD's that are still available."
