Also available on cassette for only $2.00 here or as part of the Cassette Bargain 3 Pack here.

At the peak of his popularity in the late '50s, Hank recorded a series of cuts for the World Transcription Service In cooperation with Hank himself, we handpicked the true rarities from this unique archive. This set contains alternate, un-issued takes of signature numbers like "Rub-A-Dub-Dub" and "Humpty Dumpty Heart" along with a slew of Hank tunes that he never recorded commercially.

Hear Hank like he's never been heard before, demonstrating a stylistic range from pure honky-tonk to cowboy jazz and swing and with these 25 tracks. And with Hank contributing to the liner notes and offering rare photos from his personal archive, this is truly a one-of-a-kind package.

"Thompson's self-penned tunes are reliably ingenuously corny, his voice sports a pleasant twang, and his Brazos Valley Boys cover the distance between West Texas Swing and Nashville with the stylish easy power of a '54 El Dorado with steer horns on the grille." —Iowa City Weekly

"A must-have for the serious collector, a hoot for the newcomer. Give a listen to this and don't skip the liner notes." — Vice Magazine
