Hank Williams – Memorial Album (MGM 2683 016)

This generous none-more-country double Lp compilation of the Hillbilly Shakespeare eschews the big hits in favour of a perfectly balanced selection of relationship blues, apocalyptic warnings and mother-is-dead weepies all housed in a truly odd Alan Aldridge-style psychedelic sleeve.

For two pounds, a charity shop in Sandwich has this afternoon avenged the decades-long travesty that was no Hank Williams in the Asbo music library.
