"This is more than a worthwhile collection and well worth investigating, both for long time fans, and those who've never heard this legendary performer."
- Alan Cackett 

This second Bear Family box set of Hank Thompson's studio recordings picks up where the previous collection ended and includes all his post-Capitol recordings for Warner Bros., Dot, ABC, Churchill, and MCA/Dot during the twenty-year period from 1966 through 1986. It was an era when Hank would experiment with new sounds while repeatedly returning to the unparalleled brand of honky-tonk-infused western swing that made him a legend.

In addition to the music, this collection comes with a 128-page hardcover book featuring a complete discography of Hank's recordings from the era, dozens of photos from his personal scrapbooks, and an in-depth essay drawn from nearly twenty new interviews with those closest to Hank, and detailing the evolution of a legacy artist finding his place in a changing country music marketplace while continually reasserting the magic of the Thompson touch.
