You may think you know it all when it comes to Hank Williams. You may have the three disc ORIGINAL SINGLES box, you may even have every volume of the now out-of-print chronological reissue series. No matter how much Hank you've got, this elaborately packaged 10-disc box will reveal previously untold chapters in the story of country music's greatest songwriter. THE COMPLETE HANK WILLIAMS contains not only all the Williams material ever released but 53 (!) tracks that never saw the light of day before. Consequently, this set is a must for any serious Hankophile.
Williams' knack for communicating complex emotions in simple terms, his natural ear for captivating melodies and his ability to inject all of his tortured soul into every performance are what made him such a legend. His is the wellspring from which all modern country (and a fair amount of pop and rock) songwriting flows. Featuring studio and live recordings as well as demos and radio transcriptions, this box provides the ultimate comprehensive view of Williams' music, which contained elements of folk, gospel, blues, Western Swing, and even the roots of rockabilly, in addition to the honky-tonk sound he helped invent.

Editorial reviews
...Ultimately, THE COMPLETE HANK WILLIAMS is less a document more than a documentary: the nonfiction story of a prodigiously gifted falling-down alcoholic, always at odds with his wife Audrey,...the industry he helped spawn,...and most crucially, himself... - Rating: B+
Entertainment Weekly  (09/25/1998)
10 (out of 10) - ...this jumped-up hillbilly was the bridge between old and new. He links the pious, antebellum Roy Acuff to postwar, urban, roadhouse culture....the key to country's red-dirt past and sign of a rock world to come.
