HANK WILLIAMS I Saw The Light: The Unreleased Recordings Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

At the peak of his career in 1951, Hank Williams recorded 143 songs for the Motherís Best Flour Company. Hank performed with his regular studio band and recorded his hits as well as songs he never recorded commercially anywhere else. From this amazing legacy, Time Life is proud to release a historic 54-track, 3CD + 1DVD collection drawn from the very best of the Motherís Best recordings. Itís a rare, informal glimpse into the heart and soul of country musicís greatest star who passed away on New Yearís Day 1953, at age 29. These recordings give us a deeper insight into Hankís life and music, showing a personality that had never been revealed previously. In this casual setting, it showcases his humor as he jokes with his band and the emcee, his love of music as he talks unguardedly about his favorite songs, and captures him in his prime. These shows are the first truly three-dimensional portrait of one of the giants of American music. What emerges is a full, rounded portrait of Williams at his creative and commercial peak. "Lovesick Blues"is here, along with fine versions of "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love with You)," "A Mansion on the Hill," and the Williams-composed gospel classic "I Saw the Light." EXCLUSIVE BONUS DVD: Hear the incredible story of these unreleased recordings in this revealing behind-the-scenes conversation between Hankís daughter, Jett Williams, and two members of Hankís band, Don Helms and Big Bill Lister. The album will be released in conjunction with the November 27th movie release of I Saw the Light, a biographic film directed, written and produced by Marc Abraham, starring Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams and Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Williams. It is based on the book Hank Williams: The Biography by Colin Escott.
