Dylan and friends do Hank

WHAT WOULD HANK DO? Bob Dylan’s long-gestating project to complete a batch of songs left unfinished by Hank Williams will see the light of day Oct. 4 with the release of The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams, Randy Lewis reports in Pop & Hiss. Bob enlisted his son Jakob, Hank’s granddaughter, Holly, Merle HaggardJack White, Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow, collaborators Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell, Alan Jackson, Levon Helm and Patty Loveless to create music for unpublished lyrics Williams left behind in a leather briefcase when he died in 1953. The resulting 12-song album is coming out in conjunction with the “Family Tradition” exhibition on Williams and his descendants at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, a show that opened in 2008 and will continue through Dec. 31. The LP will be the second release on Dylan’s Egyptian imprint, following a 1997 all-star tribute to seminal country artist Jimmie Rodgers. (8/5a)
