When Tragedy Struck

LP (Item 611915) RCA, 1959 — Condition: Very Good
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 26

One of the more mournful full lengths ever cut by honky tonk great Hank Snow – his When Tragedy Struck, cut for RCA Victor at the end of the 50s – and in the tradition of the best morose themed country music of the 50s or any other time, darkness never sounded so sweet and cathartic! Hank's best records always had the right mix of barn dance and elegance in the arrangements, and this is one of those. Great stuff! Includes "The Letter Edged In Black", "Old Shep", "The Prisoner's Prayer", "A Drunkard's Child", "Don't Make Me Go To Bed, I'll Be Good", "The Convict And The Rose", "Put My Little Shoes Away", "I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail" and more. (Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A great late effort from Snow's long, incredible career – again taking on some of the most maudlin material he'd ever record, with some mid 60s instrumentation that add some eerie, left-of-center sounds without compromising Snow's reputation as a classic country traditionalist.

A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption!
