4.0 out of 5 stars Handle with Care
The music and written notes and plethora of pictures are excellent. However as other Reviewers have noted already do be careful when removing or replacing the discs in their slots or you may well damage the goods! Not a good idea to have a few beers and spin this set as you need a steady hand for sure!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Music`s Great , But The Packaging Damages The CD`s !
If your thinking of buying this boxset of some of the finest music of the last century , BEWARE !
The packaging scratches the CD`s everytime they`re taken out and put back . For the price Mercury Records are charging , you should expect a product that will last , but I`m afraid that`s not the case with this boxset .

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Useful Compendium of Most of What Hank Did, 25 July 2004
This review is from: The Complete Hank Williams (Audio CD)
I won't review the whole of this, as it's impossible to summarise Hank's work and it's impact in a few thousand words.
But I've just got this, and I wanted to correct the impression that the other reviewer has left- the packaging, narrative, photos, background and the amount of time, love and effort that have gone into this production mean that it won't disappoint any fan of Hank. This is a truly beautiful production, and well worth the asking price. My CDs aren't damaged at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars RIP-OFF TIME IS HERE AGAIN, 12 Nov 2004
This review is from: The Complete Hank Williams (Audio CD)
While there is no disputing there is some great music here, some things about this release leave a LOT to be desired.
1. The price - RRP of over ONE HUNDRED POUNDS STERLING is way over the top, especially bearing in mind the following points.
2. There are 10 cd's. Why? Some of them are only 1 hr long, and others only about 40 min! Could it be anything to do with a bit of profiteering on the part of the record co.? I think the music could have fit on to 6 or 7 cd's, and so the cost could have been substantially less.
3. Especially considering the excessive RRP, this set is not well packaged. The discs are not in jewel boxes or in digipak- type trays to protect them, but are placed in slots in card pages, so they are going to be marked every time you take one out or put it back in!
The music is excellent overall, historically significant and very influential, and it deserves better presentation that it's been given. I can't recommend this overpriced, poorly packaged set as it is.
My rating of 2 stars reflects this, as if the presentation had been on par with the music, I would have given it 4 or maybe 5 stars.
