    Just ordered a limited edition 12" red vinyl platter from Omnivore records. Released this May, these Hank Williams recordings are taken from 24 Garden Spot Programs, 1950. The Four that they were able to find are on this record.

    A little taste from the 10" platter that is also available. Yeah, baby....

    I received the record yesterday. Real nice transparent red disc. The quality is fantastic. Reading the notes on the back of the record jacket, it makes mention of the fact that the Drifting Cowboys were not on these dates. It was a pickup band, albeit composed of some very fine players. That gives it a bit different vibe than the Drifting Cowboys stuff. Not confirmed, but rumor on the liner notes say that may be Cousin Jody on steel guitar here. Lots of steel and fiddle, and just a fantastic record to have on the platter. I have lots of Hank Williams, but this is pretty special; like a time machine, it's got the magic.

    It's amazing how much difference the steel player makes to the overall feel of the recordings - I'm so used to hearing Don Helms or Jerry Byrd that some of the steel playing playing jarrs a bit to my ears.

    Great to be able to hear this stuff though.

    Yeah, totally agree. Even stuff you/I haven't heard before on thsi record(and hopefully future buried gems), it's like if your familiar with the Drifting Cowboys, you can almost anticipate right where Helms would be, or in this case, the places he wouldn't be. Not worse or better, just different. Ol' Hank would say, though, "There's a few pickers that educated themselves right out of a job!" Hiram definitely liked his backup vanilla. And if he liked your girl, out would come the revolver. Just ask Faron Young.:lol:
