Overview

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. This archival set includes the only two actual concerts ever recorded of Williams, both from 1952, the last year of his life, and they feature a more relaxed and less scripted Williams than the "live" recordings he frequently made for radio shows. Taping concerts was a rare thing in 1952, mainly because the technology to do it was still in its infancy, and these historic shows were only preserved by the grace of God and the winds of fate. The sound is sketchy in spots, and nothing performed adds anything distinctive to Williams' legacy, but the fact that these concerts were actually captured (one in Niagara Falls and one in Sunset Park) is what makes them special. Also included here is a radio interview Williams did with Mack Sanders in 1951 for KFBI in Wichita, Kansas.
