For those who want their Hank Williams pure and unedited, there’s news from Robert Ackerman that a complete edition of the Mother’s Best radio programs will be released.
It appears that Time Life, which has released two of three CD sets of highlights from the radio programs recorded in 1951, has arranged to have another company Direct Holding Americas to release a 16 Disc Complete Mother’s Best to be available at the end of September. A website has been set up but doesn’t have any informations on it yet.
Ackerman says he expects the set will cost about $200.00 which puts it out of my range.
I expect the third scheduled and final Time Life 3CD box set will be released in the fall.
Here is the link to the new website.
Update: The website linked to above now has a complete press release on the new 16 disc set which will contain 72 complete 15 minute Mother’s Best shows. It’s under the Latest News link on the site.
