Disc Three begins Thompson's history as an album artist, and the character and quality of the material changes somewhat - there are a few more slow numbers, and some slight sameness begins to intrude into the music, but the quality of the performances is undiminished. Disc Four has the major part of his second album along with a ton of singles, and the latter are generally more brisk and upbeat than the LP material.

The Brazos Valley Boys, was voted the top Country Western Band for 14 years in a row by Billboard. The primary difference between The Brazos Valley Boys music and that of Bob Wills was that Hank Thompson, who used the swing beat and instrumentation to enhance his vocals, discouraged the intense instrumental soloing from his musicians that Bob Wills encouraged; however, the "Hank Thompson sound" exceeded Bob Wills in Top 40 country hits.

His backing band, The Brazos Valley Boys, was voted the top Country Western Band for 14 years in a row by Billboard. The primary difference between his music and that of Bob Wills was that Thompson, who used the swing beat and instrumentation to enhance his vocals, discouraged the intense instrumental soloing from his musicians that Wills encouraged; however, the "Hank Thompson sound" exceeded Bob Wills in Top 40 country hits. Thompson began singing in a plaintive honky tonk style similar to that of Ernest Tubb, but, desiring to secure more engagements in the dance halls of the Southwest, he reconfigured his band, the Brazos Valley Boys, to play a "light" version of the Western swing sound that Bob Wills and others made famous, emphasizing the dance beat and meticulous arrangements. Hank Thompson's 25th Anniversary Album.
