       Questions about 'Hank Williams On Sun'

      Q: Why should I buy this SUN Records compilation?
      A: This is a one of a kind theme compilation featuring Rockabilly & Country legends like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Mann, Eddie Bond, Warren Smith, Sonny Burgess    and many more.

      Q: Are there any rarities on this CD?
      A: Yes, you'll find unbelievable eight never before releasesd original SUN recordings plus rarely heard versions of Hank Williams' all time smash hits, all recorded in Memphis between 1957 and 1963.

      Q: Why are there still unreleased recording from the golden Memphis era?
      A:Producer Sam Phillips always used his tapes at SUN Records more often, so it's possible you'll work on a Johnny Cash or Roy Orbison mastertape and find an unreleased Jerry Lee Lewis track at the end, or sometimes even between takes!

      Q: Is there any Elvis Presley connection on this CD?
      A: Yes, although no track by Elvis has been found found yet, there is an unreleased alternate track of 'Your Cheatin' Heart' by Cliff Gleaves, an early member of the Memphis Mafia. A rare picture of Elvis and Cliff is featured in the booklet.
Also included is a nice picture of Rockabilly Girl Barbara Pittman, which she claimed was shot by Elvis Presley during there days at the famous Memphis label.

      Q: How is the sound quality of the recordings on this CD?
      A: Bear Family uses original tapes or the best available sources for mastering and though some of the tracks were released on vinyl and cd before, the music lover will now  get the best quality on these outstanding recordings.


  • A total of eight previously unreleased masters!
  • Sun Records recording artists sing the songs of the great Hank Williams.
  • A total of 26 country recordings from the years 1957 to 1963.
  • Next to famous artists like Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis we present lesser known recordings by Sonny Burgess, Warren Smith or Carl Mann.
  • Well-known titles combined with several unreleased alternate versions and demos!
  • Carefully remastered for best possible sound, with extensive liner notes by Hank Davis.

Hank Williams died too soon to know about Sun Records existence, but the folks at Sun surely knew about him. This CD collects for the first time the response to Hank Williams by Sun recording artists and producers. 

We present already issued records by major artists (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis) as well as lesser known Sun lights (Sonny Burgess, Warren Smith, Carl Mann) along with originally unissued alternate takes, undubbed recordings and demos. It's quite a range: male and female, black and white, they all took on Hank Williams. Sixteen different artists singing 16 different songs. Twenty-six tracks in all. The contrast is amazing.

You'll also hear some candid moments of Sam Phillips working as a producer in the studio. And there's a memorable bit of egotistical comedy as Jerry Lee Lewis, in discussion with Phillips, takes credit for writing a Hank Williams song. 

A unique collection showing the impact of Williams on Sun Records in the ten years following the singer's death in 1953.

The sleeve notes and packaging are of the usual high-quality Bear Family standard

JOHNNY CASH JERRY LEE LEWIS WARREN SMITH
VARIOUS ARTISTS SUN SHINES ON HANK WILLIAMS (Bear Family) The well is still not dry 7/10
If Hank Williams hadn't died on January 1st 1953 aged just 29 it's guessed that he'd have embraced the rockabilly that was soon to follow. His up-tempo hits had already illustrated his love of a bit of bounce. Despite Hank's untimely demise his legacy marched on in popular music.

Not least in what was to be a hotbed of creativity for the rest of the decade, Sun Records in Memphis. This CD from the vaults of the label features 26 Hank Williams songs covered at Sun. Some, like Johnny Cash's take on 'Hey Good Lookin' will be familiar but amazingly this compilation contains eight previously unissued masters of varying quality from the years 1957 - 63. There are a couple that are of no great consequence, but the majority of this album are belters. The sleeve notes and packaging are of the usual high-quality Bear Family standard. Simon Nott

A great little compilation.

This is such a good idea I'm surprised it hasn't been done before. It brings together a bunch of Hank Williams songs (either written by or associated with him) recorded for Sun Records by a total of 16 artists - a mixture of masters, demos, alternative takes and undubbed record-ings. To tempt Sun worshippers even more it includes eight previously unreleased cuts, which is where well begin. 'Hey Good Lookin" by Ernie Barton is a 53-second voice / guitar demo on which he does his best to ape Johnny Cash. It's intriguing but hardly essential. A great little compilation.

beeindruckende Zusammenstellung

Diese beeindruckende Zusammenstellung von erstklassigem Material zeigt den enormen Einfluss von Hank Williams auf die Sun-Musiker in den ers-ten zehn Jahren nach seinem Tod und schafft es dabei mühelos, sowohl die erste Garde des frühen Rock'n'Roll wie deren Mentor in gleichem Maße in den Fokus zu setzen. Gereon Helmer

I highly recommend this set.

Something Extra…
The liner notes are an interesting delve into the included artists, many of which may be unfamiliar to a wider audience. Sun historian Hank Davis, who has an unreleased track on the album, has done an excellent job on compiling the information together. There are some fascinating stories contained within the booklet, including the mystery of the whereabouts of singer Annette McGee. It also includes several rare images from the time.

Conclusion:
Bear Family Records have compiled an intriguing selection of tracks, celebrating a legendary figure in the world of Country music, through the work of an iconic recording studio. The sound quality on this album is outstanding, especially on the unreleased material, and a testament to their work. I highly recommend this set.

eine kleine Schatztruhe - Tolle Sache!

Die Bear Family hat mit diesen insgesamt 26 Tracks (die in den Jahren von 1957 bis 1963 aufgenommen wurden) also wieder mal eine kleine Schatztruhe bereit gestellt, die sich zu öffnen lohnt. Wie von diesem Label gewohnt, kommen dann auch die Liner Notes sehr ausführlich und informativ. Tolle Sache!

Presse - Various Artists Sun Shines On Hank Williams - Sun Artists Sing The Songs Of...American Music Magazine September 2019, Schweden Skivan inleds med en demo på •Hey Good Lookid» med Ernie Barton som är ett av åtta tidigare outgivna spår. Dessa blandas med outgivna alternativa tag-ningar, odubbade spår och rena demos och vi hittar till och med ett nya namn i Anette McGce som gör •Your Cheatid Heart• och Jeannie Greene från Cor-inth, Mississippi, som spelade in fyra spår hon betalade för, ett av dessa är .Your Cheatin. Heart». Även Gliff Gleaves ger sig på samma låt år 1958. På det här albumet kan man verkligen skilja agnarna från vetet då det är en enorm klass-skillnad på de inspelningar som Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Sonny Burgess eller Warren Smith presenterar gentemot många av de mindre namnkunniga artisterna.
