Hank Williams - The Complete Hank Williams (BOX SET 10CDS) Recorded in the 40s and early 50s - Released in 1998

"I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" ...

Pionero, leyenda, mito.... Su final trágico, a la temprana edad de 29 años, no le impidió convertirse en piedra angular del Country y del Rock. 

Sin un Hank Williams no habría un Townes Van Zandt, un Steve Earl, un Gram Parsons o hasta quizás un Bob Dylan... y la lista podría estirarse un buen rato. Su música es un profundo pozo de agua fresca y cristalina que ha dado de beber a infinidad de artistas sedientos de ideas e inspiración. Su influencia no se puede abarcar. En mayor o menor medida, cualquiera que tenga algo de Country en sus venas está marcado por él.

No hay nada más puro y sincero que Hank Williams. Un romántico que buscaba sentido al amor, la vida y la muerte a través de la poesía de su música y sus letras. Una persona atormentada en constante lucha con sus demonios internos. Una batalla que quedó grabada a hierro caliente en cada una de sus composiciones.

Con motivo del 75 aniversario de su nacimiento, se publicó el mejor y más completo -hasta el día de hoy)- Box Set que existe sobre Hank Williams. Diez discos que cubren  un legado musical irrepetible. Una edición creada con mucho mimo y que fue laureada por crítica y público hasta la saciedad allá por 1998. Hoy en día es difícil conseguirlo sin rascarse bien el bolsillo, aunque de vez en cuando aparece alguna buena oferta por la red de redes. Nosotros, 20 años después, rendimos pleitesía al "Hillbilly Shakespeare" y os lo traemos a las orillas del Lago para que lo disfrutéis.

Honky Tonk, Blues, Gospel, Bluegrass, Country ... llamadlo como quieran. No hay adjetivos suficientes, pero no importa porque sobran las palabras: Hank Williams is calling you!
