With his very first hit "Move It On Over," Hank Williams Sr. established himself both as a powerful personality and as a songwriter with a unique gift for both hooky melodies and unforgettable turns of phrase. Williams cranked out numerous other classics over the next five years, revealing in the process a particular gift for heart-wrenching ballads of lost love and broken hearts. He was unquestionably country's biggest star when he died at the age of 29, a victim to drug and alcohol abuse. Other megastars of the era--Webb Pierce, for example--are remembered only by hardcore country fans, but Williams remains a mainstream favorite, a testament to both his emotive singing and his many gifts as a songwriter.
20 GREATEST HITS distills Hank Williams' forty chart singles to a single disc of his most familiar and most enduring music. These tracks reveal Williams to be a master not only of the heartbreak ballad but also of the joyful, upbeat dance tune (with such classics as "Jambalaya," and "Hey, Good Lookin'"). Those looking for a more thorough collection of Williams hits should consider 40 GREATEST HITS.
