It was released in by Mercury Records — who under PolyGram became responsible for the MGM tape vault — on the 25th anniversary of Williams' death. Significantly, it was the first anthology in quite some time that did not subject Williams' recordings to either rechanneled stereo, posthumous overdubs, artificial duets with family members like his son Hank Jr.
Because of both this, and the value-for-money attraction of having a deeper song selection than single-disc compilations issued previously by MGM The Hanging Garden - The Cure - Pornography, many reviewers consider this anthology to be the perfect starting point for newcomers to Williams' recorded legacy.
The album remains, to this day, the best-selling record of Williams' career. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Hank Williams. Country honky-tonk blues. Fred Rose Wesley Rose.
