Hank Snow: I’ve Been Everywhere (2 CDs)


Canada’s greatest contribution to country music, Nova Scotia’s “Singing Ranger” had 65 Billboard hits from 1949-1974 and was a regular on the Grand Old Opry stage. Though not a proper Hank Snow release, this single-disc, greatest-hits collection illustrates Snow’s complete mastery of the traditional country “traveling” song (“I’ve Been Everywhere”) as well as his forays into more esoteric material, such as swing, boogie and Hawaiian. Underappreciated guitar player and a sturdy singer, “Essential” is a winning profile of Snow. — S. Duda
