Bob Dylan Revives Lost Hank Williams Songs


Hank Williams Sr.

December 5, 2007 — Bob Dylan is heading up a project to have several artists record some of Hank Williams' final, never-recorded songs, according to

Dylan apparently got hold of the lyric sheets Hank had with him in a briefcase when he died and has enlisted the help of musicians including the White Stripes' Jack White to work on completing the "lost" songs.

White recently recorded Hank's "You Know That I Know" at Martina McBride's Blackbird Studios in Nashville. Dominic Suchtya, the bassist who played on the tracks, said: "We did the session in one long day, live in a circle with some mics around — much like Hank would have."

Other rumored participants in the project include Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Lucinda Williams and Norah Jones.
