An international country singer and songwriter with a huge following, Hank Locklin had one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in country music. He could sing so high when he chose and reportedly one writer described his as 'Singing two tones higher than the clouds'.
Includes Hank's first big hit, the self-penned 'Send Me the Pillow You Dream On' and 'Please Help Me I'm Falling' with its highly distinctive piano introduction by Floyd Cramer.
Hank loved a sentimental ballad and his melancholy tenor could wring every ounce of emotion from the lyrics he sang followed by those soaring vocals and you knew you were listening to a song stylist, not just a good singer. No more is this evident than on the Eddie Dean classic 'One Had My Name', it could almost be someone else singing after the first few lines when his voice summons full power.
