Hank Is Still Lonesome

A year ago at Christmas I received the Hank Williams Mothers Best Radio CD set. If you are even a slight fan, this may be worth your time and money. When the masters were discovered it added 50% to known Hank Williams recordings. Here's I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, one of the saddest songs ever sung, when it was new, fresh and cutting edge.

Hank's "So Lonesome," "The Tennessee Walz," and "The Blue Skirt Walz" all seem to have had some influence on me during my formative stage. I don't know whether I should find that unsettling or not.
