‘New’ Hank Williams Music Is Almost 65 Years Old
(AP) – It’s considered “new” music – even though it has been around for close to 65 years.
The recordings of country music legend Hank Williams were done for a taped show that aired on early country music stations – and sponsored by a Texas plant nursery.
“The Garden Spot Programs, 1950″ feature two dozen songs and jingles on tape. Most of the tapes were lost – but the copies from one station in Iowa survived. The recordings were transferred, restored and mastered for release.
The project will be available starting May 20 for both download and on vinyl.
