Description

Recorded in the Fall of 1950 & Broadcast in January of 1951, this Performance is Newly Restored & Remastered. Includes Hank & The Drifting Cowboys Performing the hits, “Lovesick Blues’ and “Moanin’ The Blues†The performances heard here were recorded on acetate discs (meant to be played only once or
twice) that were shelved in 1951, and they gradually faded from common memory. In the 1970s the acetates were saved from the trash by a WSM employee and eventually given to Hank’s daughter, Jett. On behalf of the estate, Jett fought an eight-year battle to establish ownership, finally winning the right to release these recordings in partnership with Time Life.
