LIVE CONCERTS ON OCTOBER 2
No live concert recordings of Hank Williams have been released until now. In fact, the two shows on Hank Williams: The Lost Concerts Limited Collector’s Edition were recorded by chance. A radio DJ in Buffalo, New York, taped one of Hank’s local concerts to play back on the air. Just a few weeks later, another performance was recorded by the promoter to play to his wife, who was too sick to attend, this time in Pennsylvania. The two concerts capture Hank Williams as he’s never been heard before: live and unscripted, giving insight into the legend as an engaging, riveting performer. They were recorded just six weeks apart in May and July 1952, and reveal Williams at the peak of his career.
His biggest hits “Hey Good Looking”, “Jambalaya,” “I Saw the Light,” “Lovesick Blues,” “Cold, Cold Heart,” and “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You)” are performed with a far more vibrant and intimate feel that the studio recordings, peppered by personal stories about his band members, himself, and his songs. The album also includes the only known live recording of “Are You Walking and A Talking.” In addition, the CD also features an extremely rare radio interview with Williams made in 1951. It was conducted with Mack Sanders for KFBI in Wichita, Kan. on September 14, 1951.
