Various Artists: The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams

[cover art]

The October 2011 release The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams is a collection of previously unheard songs by the country great, recorded by artists such as Bob Dylan, Jack White, Norah Jones and Levon Helm, The set, issued on Dylan's imprint Egyptian Records, was originally conceived by veteran A&R executive Mary Martin as a Dylan-centric project, but eventually evolved into a multi-artist tribute to the late singer-songwriter.

The songs featured in the set were rescued from notebooks left behind in a leather briefcase by Williams after he died in 1953 at the age of 29. The notes contained lyrics and song ideas that were finished by the 13 artists who contributed to the disc. The full story of Williams' notebooks is told in the album's liner notes, which were penned by Michael McCall of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
