Overview

It could be argued that no artist balanced country music history and a prescient sense of the future better than the late Canadian singer Hank Snow, who started singing in the early 1930s and didn't stop until 1994. Though he was prim and proper in appearance and singing style, when he got into an up-tempo number, all hell broke loose. There was no rock 'n' roll in 1950 when he cut "I'm Moving On" and the barn-burning "The Golden Rocket," but the Singing Ranger clearly heard it coming. At the same time, he had few peers when it came to putting across a ballad with powerful, deep feeling -- witness his bluesy take on Ivory Joe Hunter's "I Almost Lost My Mind," and the soulful crooning he uses to put the hurt on "(Now and Then, There's) A Fool Such as I" (the Elvis connection is all over Snow's career). Never forgetting his roots, he honored his inspiration, Jimmie Rodgers, with two tribute albums, two cuts from which are on this first-rate anthology. Sixteen tracks, all of them choice, duly honoring a great artist's exemplary life's work.
