5.0 out of 5 stars Budget heaven!!!!!!! October 28, 2012

As far as I am concerned, Hank Thompson is THE most underrated/unheard star of country music. His recording career covered seven decades and there was really never a low moment. His records sold and there was never a doubt that at the time, Hank was a big star. For some reason he is not as well known today as many of his contemporaries.

These are six lp's from 1957 - 61 and represent a true peak of country. Hank is all about honky-tonk and Western Swing. These are all short, radio-friendly songs that typically feature only short instrumental breaks (although there are a few instrumentals scattered in). No, Hank is not Bob Wills, but one can hear that element, especially in the blues and swing influences that abound. All of these were recorded for Capitol, and that label really did country music proud during the 50's and 60's - especially the West Coast.
A downside to this release is that there are no notes at all - absolutely nothing. The Lp's are two per cd and comprise:
Hank! Dance Ranch Songs for Rounders This Broken Heart of Mine An OLd Love Affair At the Golden Nugget

The Nugget album has long been acknowledged a classic and the 90's reissue commands a high price at this time. This is an amazing way to pick it up with five bonus lp's cheaper than by itself! Jasmine has great similar release, but only two cd's and four of the lp's. I bought both, but I admit to being baseline bsc when it comes to completeness (I got the Jasmine first).

Sound quality is fine. I often worry about these ooc releases, but I have no complaints. Everything is there, with full sound and presence.
