The Hangman's Blues: Prison Songs in Country Music 1956-1972 - Various Artists on Limited Edition LP

From the people who brought you Hillbillies In Hell... Grim tales of jailbirds, cutthroats, cuckolds, executioners, murderers and popcorn-dusted escapees. Prison ballads form part of the historic lifeblood of country music and saw a distinct resurgence after the May 1960 execution of controversial convict Caryl Chessman.

Here Iron Mountain Analog Research presents 16 of the very best, many seldom heard since their original release (often on obscure, microscopic or private-press labels). Running the gamut from smooth balladeers of woe to ramshackle and plaintive backyard rockabillies, The Hangman's Blues features fevered declarations of innocence, profound diatribes on capital punishment and mournful odes to that last mile.

Years in the making – The Hangman's Blues will chill, thrill and bedevil the dreams of all who hear it. Originally issued on forgotten 45s, some of these sides are indescribably rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All in one handy LP package.

Features:
• From the same folks who brought you Hillbillies In Hell
• Full dynamic range 2016 remasters direct from the first generation analogue master tapes
• Limited edition deluxe gatefold LP with exclusive scholarly liner notes by Alvin Lucia
