Tom T Hall

Tom T. Hall became known as ‘the Storyteller’ for his brilliantly realised tales of small-town America. His songs are three-minute snapshots of ordinary people’s lives, written with exceptional wit, insight and humanity.  

Many musicians have covered his songs (most notably Jeannie C. Riley with the 1968 hit, ‘Harper Valley P.T.A.’) - and he also has racked up several solo hits. 

Between 1971 and 1976, he had six number one Country hits, including his classic, ‘The Year That Clayton Delaney Died’, which is included here. 

This CD pairs two of his best albums: 1971’s In Search Of A Song (rightly regarded as his masterpiece), and The Rhymer And Other Five And Dimers from 1973. 

Both of these LPs are now released here on CD for the first time.
