The Complete Hank Wiliams is a 10-CD boxed set containing every single one of Hank’s classic sides for the Sterling and MGM labels, plus 135 non-session, radio and television recordings for a total of 225 tracks, 53 of them unissued. As one reviewer quipped:
“This is one CD boxed set that is worth the money”.
The package contains two booklets — over 150 pages — 140 photos — Williams’ hand-written lyrics — plus original advertisements, posters, LP covers, a 2,500 word essay by Daniel Cooper, Grammy-winning notes on the music by Williams biographer Colin Escott, and quotes by Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings and much more.
