Hank Thompson SONGS FOR ROUNDERS Vinyl Record

Hank Thompson SONGS FOR ROUNDERS Vinyl Record
With it's tales of drunkenness, prostitution, drug abuse, gambling and vagrancy, with one of the most notorious album covers in the history of all popular music, Thompson's 1959 LP remains one of country's most essential albums. It all started when Thompson brought Ken Nelson, Capitol's head of country A&R at the time, a song he often featured in his live performances called "Cocaine Blues. " Nelson told him there was no way the song would ever get any airplay as a single, but suggested it might work as part of an album concept. Thompson then proceeded to round up a collection of tunes taken from every walk of American popular song and every walk of American life like the walk taken in Dallas' red light district in "Deep Elm. "This Real Gone vinyl reissue offers the optimum way to experience this landmark album. Remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in NewYork, cut by Peter Black at FM Mastering, and and manufactured on 160-gram vinyl at Bill Smith Custom Records, this release features the stereo mix of Songs for Rounders, as this record was not only Hank's first stereo recording but also one of the earliest country albums to be released instereo (just wait 'til you hear some of those sparkling Merle Travis leads)! And, we have included an album-size insert with a full-color reproduction of the album cover suitable for framing on one side and notes from Grammyr-winning liner note writer Colin Escott on the other.
