AVID Country continues with its Five Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release featuring country legend Hank Thompson, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.
“Songs Of The Brazos Valley”; “Dance Ranch”; “Songs For Rounders” “Most Of All” and “An Old Love Affair”.
Maybe the reason Hank Thompson isn’t thought of in the same breath as that other famous country music Hank, Hank Williams, is that possibly he continued playing into his eighties long after his musical heyday in the fifties and sixties. He didn’t die young? He was, however, a huge country music star inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1989 and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1997. His band, The Brazos Valley Boys were the top country ‘n’ western band on Billboard for 14 years straight! Developing his style on a lighter version of Bob Wills’ western swing with more emphasis on melody and arrangements, Hank had a ton of hits in the 1950s and 1960s. Perhaps his most famous being “Wild Side Of Life” which spent three months at Number 1 in the charts and gave rise to a response record from Kitty Wells called “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” which sold a million records and made her the first million selling female country artist. Check her albums out on AMSC1328. Our five fine selections include two acknowledged country masterpieces in “Dance Ranch” and “Songs For Rounders” where Hank puts together well thought out albums with proper themes rather than just a collection of hit singles.
Check out:- Jim Reeves (AMSC1294); Johnny Cash (AMSC1252); Marty Robbins (AMSC1281); Patsy Cline (AMSC1313); Hank Williams (AMSC1267); Kitty Wells (AMSC1328); Chet Atkins (AMSC1335); Slim Whitman (AMSC1346); Jean Shepard (AMSC1355); Jimmie Rodgers (AMSC1362).
