The Ultimate Collection [Mercury Bonus DVD]

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Mercury/UTV Records' 2002 release The Ultimate Collection does not follow a strict chronological running order over the course of 42 songs and two discs, but that's not a problem since the sequencing flows easily and is logical to the ear. Besides, the other "best introduction/summary" to Hank Williams -- 1978's 40 Greatest Hits -- didn't run chronologically, either. That collection is still the best choice for an introduction, even if it doesn't have the remastered sound this boasts, because it has a better song selection. True, all of the stone-cold essentials are here, but a lot of songs that really should have been here -- "My Son Calls Another Man Daddy," ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Mercury/UTV Records' 2002 release The Ultimate Collection does not follow a strict chronological running order over the course of 42 songs and two discs, but that's not a problem since the sequencing flows easily and is logical to the ear. Besides, the other "best introduction/summary" to Hank Williams -- 1978's 40 Greatest Hits -- didn't run chronologically, either. That collection is still the best choice for an introduction, even if it doesn't have the remastered sound this boasts, because it has a better song selection. True, all of the stone-cold essentials are here, but a lot of songs that really should have been here -- "My Son Calls Another Man Daddy," "Nobody's Lonesome for Me," "Dear John," "Baby, We're Really in Love," for instance -- are missing, since the compilers favor a slight revisionist bent that will appeal to alt-country fans more gloom and doom, not as much fun. It should be noted that this complaint is a minor one, applicable only to those who already have a lot of Williams; this is an excellent overall summary of his greatest work, one that will satisfy most listeners or will convert those who have yet to realize why Williams is a legend. [This version of the album includes a bonus DVD containing Morgan Neville's director's cut of his feature-length Hank Williams documentary, Honky Tonk Blues.]
