There is nothing I enjoy more than these re issues from Country Rewind Records, because of the long list of Classic Country artists they chose to cover on these. If you’ll notice my last few articles have all been about this series, and how they embellish any music collection. One of the main reasons these albums are so integral is due to the fact much of this music was on vinyl only, and now much of it is on CD.
I myself personally enjoy music in many different forms, and I usually buy different variations of the same music. I enjoy all of the different aspects of the adaptations of each recording. Especially in today’s day and age it is important to go back to those wonderful Legends of Country that wore the nudie suits and flashy rhinestones of the 60’s and 70’s.
Yeah, I know what you’re saying by now you have more CDs than you have time to listen to ( like I do). But the sheer enjoyment that I get from hunting and finding all of these recordings in so many different formats is my main source of fun besides hunting.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (August 12, 2022) – Country Rewind Records has announced the release of Hank Snow – The Lost Souvenir Collection with Special Guest Artist Jimmie Snow. Country Rewind Records is proud to present a special collection of newly discovered recordings from “The Singing Ranger,” Hank Snow. One of country music’s most gifted performers who has influenced several generations of musicians. He was elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1978 and was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1979. He was also recognized by the Nova Scotia Music Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1985. He passed away December 20, 1999. His son, Jimmie Snow, was quite pleased to hear these songs 45 years later and be in the studio while the additions and the updates were completed. This album is a tribute to Hank’s long and illustrious career.
The album is available for streaming and download on all digital music platforms, including Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Pandora and more at https://HankSnow.lnk.to/LostSouvenirCollectionPR.
If you are a fan of classic Country, you know the name Hank Snow, and if you are a Hank Snow fan, you’ll recognize many of the song titles on this album. But you have never heard Hank or these songs the way you will hear them on this unique collection! In 1949, Hank made the big move to Nashville, Tennessee, and began recording songs for RCA Victor. As was the case with many future stars, his big break came in 1950 when he was invited to play on The Grand Ole Opry, whose radio broadcasts were heard over much of the USA. He quickly established a reputation as a singer and guitar player, noted for his flamboyant sequined stage outfits. He was also a prolific and successful songwriter, writing many of the songs heard on the 80 million albums that he sold over his long career.
This special collection of songs was recorded at Eastside Manor Studio in Nashville, Tennessee with Executive Producer Thomas Gramuglia and Producer Rex Allen, Jr., for Boxer Productions. Aaron Dethrage served as re-recording and mastering engineer. Studio musicians included Dug Grieves on electric guitar, Joshua Cobb on drums and Kristen Rogers provided background vocals.
“Special thanks to Jimmie Snow and Rex Allen, Jr. for their help in making this special project come together,” expressed Executive Producer Thomas Gramuglia.
