Description

As well as being the greatest and most influential Country music artist of his generation, the late Hank Williams was a peerless songwriter whose music and lyrics continue to be heard around the world some 65 years after his premature passing at the age of just 29.

Prolific in a way few have been before or since, it's hard to know just how many more songs would have become country and pop standards had his life not been so short. In a recording career that barely spanned 8 years Hank wrote well over a hundred songs. Virtually all of them are now considered classics, and virtually all of them have been revived many times over by other Country artists.

Hank's songs, and some songs he did not write but that are closely associated with him, have also made significant inroads into the pop, rock 'n' roll and R&B markets - particularly between the early 1950s and early 1960s when it frequently seemed like a badge of honour for any artist to cover a Williams copyright.

"Hey Good Lookin'! Everybody Sings Hank Williams" offers, for the first time on CD, a varied and enjoyable selection of non-Country covers of Hank's songs from a collection of names that in themselves read like a mini-history of popular music. You'll know most of those all-star names even if you don't yet know their versions of these songs, several of which are making their digital debut here in this Jasmine collection.

Remastered as always from the finest available sources, and with the usual informative sleeve notes that you have come to expect from Jasmine, this long-overdue collection of quality covers of some of the finest songs of the 1940s and 50s is guaranteed to appeal to everyone, whether they realise they like the songs of Hank Williams or not.
