Description

Once in a great while a truly superlative musical talent comes along, it only happens a handful of times per century, and one of those times “it” was Hank Williams. Despite his swift and total rise to super stardom by the age 25, by 29 he was dead in the back of his own Cadillac, but it is what happened in the meantime that made all the difference. While America, returning victorious from the War in 1945, attempted to create an image of a invincibility, wealth and power in the face of its citizens and the world, there was a boy with a guitar from the wrong side of the tracks, Alabama, who had another story to tell. A story that, amid all the propaganda and ticker tape parades, Americans could relate to and, judging from the record sales, obviously wanted to hear. From 1946 to 1951 Hank Williams recorded enough hits to last country music stations for the following fifty. He dominated the country music charts throughout this period (with 11 # 1 songs and many more in the Top 10), and songs like “Cold Cold Heart,” “Hey Good Lookin'” and “Your Cheatin' Heart," have become standards in American music.  I Saw The Light is the first of five albums that represent a complete chronological retrospective (1946-1951) of the man who revolutionized not only country music, but pop music in general.
