Product Description

It is likely that most casual fans of country music will already have about all the Hank Williams recordings that they feel they need, especially after the release of those great Mother’s Flour recordings that were “lost”: for so many years. But for those die hard fans of Hank, here is another totally unexpected program of his music, salvaged from another transcribed radio program. We had never heard of the Omnivore label, and we’d never heard of NAUGHTON FARMS , which evidently was a huge supplier of flowers and nursery items for rural folks back in the days when just about everyone listened to the radio. They had Hank Williams record a number of shows for their radio ads, aimed at the Midwestern customer. And though a large number of these transcriptions were shipped out to various stations, apparently only one set survived. (Hank evidently recorded these shows in Nashville in 1950). Though the songs are familiar (there are another two versions of LOVESICK BLUES here (!), the sound quality is decent and the overall music & presentation will please those who can’t get too much of Hank & his music. There are slight differences between these shows and the commercial MGM records—for instance Hank does a fine version of JESUS REMEMBERED ME (here as a solo, rather than the duet he did with wife Audrey). And the fine notes by Colin Escott suggest that Clell Summey (Cousin Jody) was the steel player on the sessions instead of Don Helms. Hank’s singing is as good as ever on songs like AT THE FIRST FALL OF SNOW, FARTHER ALONG and I’VE JUST TOLD MAMA GOODBYE. All in all this is a very worthwhile and well presented package, and it just serves to remind us of the musical giant that was Hank Williams.
