TIME LIFE has launched the official website, www.HankWilliamsMothersBest.com, to offer fans the exclusive opportunity to pre-order the limited edition box set, “HANK WILLIAMS: The Complete Mother’s Best Recordings…Plus!”. The project can also be pre-ordered by calling (212) 991-5195. The first 100 pre-orders will be accompanied by a specially designed t-shirt or other memorabilia.
In addition to ordering the set, the website will also offer fans the latest news about HANK WILLIAMS, exclusive audio and video, notes from HANK WILLIAMS JR. and JETT WILLIAMS, details about the box set and more.
JETT WILLIAMS said: “Those family members you barely recall and those you knew and loved so well may have passed on….my daddy has, the band has, the announcers and the sponsors have, but through these recordings we can share a moment in their lives thought to be lost forever. We can appreciate as never before why HANK WILLIAMS, the man and his music, was the SHAKESPEARE of everyman. It may have taken sixty years, a PULITZER prize and the release of this treasure trove of music for some to appreciate just what a force his indomitable talent was and is, but now they will understand the genius of HANK WILLIAMS as never before.”
HANK WILLIAMS JR. added: “I call daddy ‘The Real King’. When daddy recorded these shows, he was writing songs for 1951, but they’ll still work for whoever’s listening in 2051…..and they’ll be listening, I guarantee you. Daddy’s words will get you today like they got listeners fifty, sixty years ago. Think of the impact he has had on listeners through the years.”
