Editorial Reviews

Nobody does maudlin better than Hank Snow. Here Hank's deeply affecting vibrato graces beautiful tales of torment and woe. In fact, two whole albums of the tragic tales of prisoners, murderers, inebriates, bereaved parents and pet owners. 1958's When Tragedy Struck mined a rich vein in country and folk music traditions, the tragedy song, a weeper delivered with just the right mix of pathos and theatricality. So successful was the LP that in 1964 a sequel followed, Songs Of Tragedy. For the first time both these albums are officially presented on CD, 25 tracks in all including 2 bonus tracks, in glorious remastered sound with exclusive liner notes and rare photos. No story is too macabre, no ending too bleak for the svelte baritone of Hank Snow.

This was wonderful, my husband had all these albums years ago on the 33 1/3 records, so is pleased to be able to hear his favorite old songs again.

I love Hank Snow, The Singing Ranger, and anybody who rates these two beautiful beautiful albums Hank did, Songs Of Tragedy/When Tragedy Struck, which are two of Hank's concept albums dealing with sad songs 1 star, don't know music. These deserve background singers as back then, country music was more polished when these songs were recorded and I love this style of country music very much. I love Hank's 50's stuff too, but love the Anita Kerr Quartet and the Jordanaires doing backup vocals on these recordings. Highly recommended! These songs are available on the expensive Bear sets, but now I see this CD is out of stock, which is sad.
