Video: Unboxing Hank Williams
I haven’t even listened to any of it yet, but I had to share this with you. As I repeatedly say in the video above, this is the coolest packaging on a box set I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to dig into the 15 CDs and DVD. Amazing.
Full review to follow, but very briefly: Throughout 1951, Nashville radio station WSM broadcast a 15-minute segment where Hank Williams and his band would tell some jokes and play a couple songs; this box contains all 70 of the surviving segments. Since most of these were recorded to acetate, the sound quality is apparently as good as many studio recordings. I can’t wait to find out for myself if that’s true.
