Hank Williams album — 6 years ago

First of all, not a big country fan. But even so, Hank Williams was a big influence on music, during his time period. I can see why he is always included in “popular” music collections that are usually all rock and roll. Hey, my dad liked him! So you know I have to respect that.

Anyhow, the album they chose to represent him was not made during his life time. In fact, as they explain at the website, “albums” were not really made during his life time. So this is a new, collection of his work.

There are many other similar “collections” available. I happen to have a bigger box set, that is an anthology of practically everything he ever recorded, one that is listed on other “Best Of” lists, (see the Rolling Stone 500 list). I am sure any similar sets could be substituted for this particular choice by TIME magazine, though this one might be more affordable if you are actually purchasing it.
