• Hank Thompson & His BRAZOS VALLEY BOYS - Headin' Down the Wrong Highway - The Early Albums

Hank Thompson was one of the greatest honky-tonk singers in country history and perhaps the most popular Western swing musician of the '50s and '60s.

This is the first ever 2CD set to feature four of his original LPs: Dance Ranch; Song Rounders; This Broken Heart of Mine and the first live country album that was released, At the Golden Nugget all lovingly remastered.

Reportedly Hank was the inspiration for Jeff Bridges character in the Oscar winning movie 'Crazy Heart' so when dealing with Hank Thompson you are truly in the company of a genuine star.
