AllMusic Review by

The Hank Williams volume of 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection is a good, basic compilation of Williams' highlights, featuring such timeless tunes as "Hey, Good Lookin'," "Jambalaya," "Move It on Over," "Honky Tonk Blues," "Why Don't You Love Me," "Honky Tonkin'," "I Saw the Light," and "Lovesick Blues." Yes, there are some major songs missing -- "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "You Win Again," "A Mansion on the Hill," "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It," "Half as Much," and "My Son Calls Another Man Daddy," among others -- but this is fine as a budget-line sampler for casual fans. It's not the best compilation in his catalog, but it doesn't have a bum track on it, and it's a mighty fine listen.
