This impressive four-disc Bear Family set presents many of the finest tunes by the beloved Canadian country crooner Hank Snow, including "The Golden Rocket," "The Wreck of the Old 97," and "I Don't Hurt Anymore."
Bear Family's The Singing Ranger: 1949-1953 contains every song Hank Snow recorded for RCA in the beginning of his career. Not only are career-making songs like "I'm Movin' On," "Marriage Vow," and "The Rhumba Boogie" included, but so is a wealth of unreleased songs and alternate takes. For diehard Hank Snow fans, this first volume of The Singing Ranger series is the most essential of the three. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
