From the back cover: The artistry of Hank Snow has never been typed. He sings all kinds of songs, from ballads to multi-syllable up-tempo chants and lends his rich recitative tones to an occasional "reading".
In this album of songs of sorrow, Hank is assisted by the Rainbow Ranch Boys with vocal background by the Jorndanaires. The organ console accompaniment is played by Marvin Hughes, musical director of Station WSM, Nashville, Tennessee, where Hank originates his radio and television shows over the NBC network.
