Sun Shines On Hank Williams: Sun Artists Sing The Songs of HankWilliams on CD

Extensive liner notes by Hank Davis, carefully remastered for the best possible sound. Hank Williams died too soon to know about Sun Records, but the folks at Sun surely knew about him. This CD collects for the first time the response to Hank Williams by Sun Records artists and producers. We present issued records by major artists (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis) - as well as lesser known Sun lights (Sonny Burgess, Warren Smith, Carl Mann) - along with originally unissued alternate takes, undubbed recordings and demos. It's quite a range: male and female, black and white - they all took on Hank Williams. Sixteen different artists singing 16 different songs. Twenty-six tracks in total. The contrast is amazing. You'll also hear some candid moments of Sam Phillips working as a producer in the studio. And there's a memorable bit of egotistical comedy as Jerry Lee Lewis, in discussion with Phillips, wants to take credit for writing a Hank Williams song. A unique collection showing the impact of Williams on Sun Records in the ten years following the singer's death in 1953.
