              Hank Williams' "Mother's Best"
            Recordings Finally Being Released

After years of legal wrangling, Hank Williams' "Mother's 
Best" radio programs will finally be released beginning 
this fall under Time Life's exclusive agreement with his 
children, Jett Williams and Hank Williams Jr. The 143 
previously-unreleased recordings were made in 1951 for 
Williams' show on radio station WSM-AM in Nashville. Air-
ing at 7:15 a.m., the program was sponsored by Mother's 
Best flour. Williams and his band pre-recorded 72 of the 
shows to run while they were on tour. The shows were 
recorded on 16-inch acetate discs that were later thrown 
into the trash but salvaged by a WSM employee. One attempt 
was made to release the songs with overdubbed instrumental 
tracks, and one record label tried to release them and 
lost a legal challenge. After Williams' family was given 
the discs, the estate fought an eight-year battle to 
establish sole ownership of the recordings. In addition 
to Williams' best-known material, the recordings include 
40 songs he was never known to have performed and others 
he never recorded commercially. Time Life will release 
the music periodically over a three-year period. Jett 
Williams says the recordings show another side of her 
father's music. "Everyone will get to know the man and 
his musical genius as never before," she said. "These 
recordings were my vehicle to get to really know the 
father I never met."

       Has Eddy Arnold Made His Final Chart Bow?

Eddy ArnoldForget the top album and song for a moment. 
The big news this week is that RCA Records worked its 
promotional magic and charted the late Eddy Arnold's 
final single, a feat that gives the recently departed 
superstar the singular distinction of having charted 
a record in Billboard every decade from the 1940s 

Arnold made his first chart appearance in June 1945 with 
"Each Minute Seems a Million Years" and went on to score 
28 No. 1's and 62 Top 10s. The new single, by the way, 
is titled "To Life," and it raises its glass at No. 49 
-- the highest charting new entry of the week.

Arnold quit having regular hits in the early 1980s but 
managed to return to the singles charts in 1999 via his 
"Cattle Call" duet with LeAnn Rimes. That song made it 
all the way to No. 18.

Other than registering the late Country Music Hall of 
Famer's achievement, the charts are pretty sedate this 
week. Brad Paisley's "I'm Still a Guy" moves into the 
No. 1 song slot, while Toby Keith's 35 Biggest Hits 
settles in for its second week at the top of the coun-
try albums chart.

There's just one new album to note -- Playlist: The 
Very Best of Roy Orbison -- which arrives at No. 74. 
And there are two other first-time songs apart from 
Arnold's -- Ashton Shepherd's "Sounds So Good" (No. 
56) and Taylor Swift's "Should've Said No" (No. 59).

Returning to the albums list are Rodney Carrington's 
King of the Mountains (No. 71) and Diamond Rio's 16 
Biggest Hits (No. 75). Song-wise, Ashley Gearing's 
"Out the Window" comes back on at No. 55, and Kid 
Rock's "All Summer Long" reappears at No. 60.

Brooks & Dunn's "Put a Girl in It," which got some 
valuable exposure on Sunday's (May 18) Academy of 
Country Music Awards telecast, has already been flex-
ing a lot of radio muscle. This week the song leaps 
from No. 27 to No. 22.

Trooping directly behind Keith within the Top 5 albums 
are Swift's self-titled CD (now in its 82nd week on the 
charts), Dierks Bentley's Greatest Hits/Every Mile a 
Memory 2003-2008, Carrie Underwood's Carnival Ride and 
James Otto's Sunset Man.

The remaining Top 5 songs, also in descending order, 
are Phil Vassar's "Love Is a Beautiful Thing," Otto's 
"Just Got Started Lovin' You," Rascal Flatts' "Every 
Day" and Lady Antebellum's "Love Don't Live Here."

While one supposes that Eddy Arnold's "To Life" is his 
final single, it just might not be. His longtime label, 
RCA, has a history of resurrecting the dead for chart 
purposes. It kept Jim Reeves' recordings on the charts 
for nine years after his death in 1964, scoring 34 more 
chart singles (five of which went No. 1).

The label even paired Reeves in a series of studio-
simulated duets with Deborah Allen (who was only 10 
when Reeves died) and charted three singles in the 
late '70s and early '80s.

The oddest hookup came, however, in 1981-82 when RCA 
and MCA Records electronically linked the late Reeves 
and the even later Patsy Cline in a series of duets -- 
even though the two had never actually recorded 
together. It worked. This wizardry led to Reeves hav-
ing two more singles on the charts.
