The Lost Concerts [Limited Collector's Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Hank Williams is where modern country began. His brilliant songwriting, stage sense, and unassuming vocal delivery, although it's hard to imagine it now, made him the template for everything that followed in his wake.

Also included here is a radio interview Williams did with Mack Sanders in 1951 for KFBI in Wichita, Kansas.
