Dylan, Levon Record Lost Hank Williams Songs

#47241 3 years, 2 months ago
Looks like Bob Dylan, Levon Helm and others have added music to some lost Hank Williams songs. If it's half as good as the similar project Billy Bragg/Wilco did for Woody Guthrie songs it should be interesting to check out:

The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams premieres the performances of 12 previously unheard Hank Williams lyric compositions set to music by 13 artists who have been shaped by Williams. Look for The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams to be released on Oct. 4, 2011.

The track list:
1. You've Been Lonesome, Too - Alan Jackson
2. The Love That Faded - Bob Dylan
3. How Many Times Have You Broken My Heart? - Norah Jones
4. You Know That I Know – Jack White
5. I'm So Happy I Found You - Lucinda Williams
6. I Hope You Shed a Million Tears – Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell
7. You're Through Fooling Me – Patty Loveless
8. You'll Never Again Be Mine – Levon Helm
9. Blue Is My Heart – Holly Williams
10. Oh, Mama, Come Home – Jakob Dylan
11. Angel Mine – Sheryl Crow
12. The Sermon on the Mount – Merle Haggard

Good find SsS!

And I like your reference to the Wilco-Bragg album...that should def. be in my collection.

I like the artists that are contributing to this....Big fan of Lucinda Williams. Also love Jack White's mello stuff....wish he would do more of that.

I can't recommend that album, Mermaid Avenue, enough; it's a frequent-play for me. Really beautiful melodies and vocals to some great Woody lyrics. Now it looks like I'm going to have to check out Alan Jackson, from what I'm seeing here. Not someone I ever thought would be worth a listen, and it's always nice to be proven wrong on that assumption.
