Collector's Notes

hank Locklin, late 60s

I purchased this Hank Locklin picture with autograph on Ebay. Absolutely a late 60s look for Hank.

P.S. This came from the Cohen collection... unfortunately, I was only able to buy a small portion of this collection.


Correction:The picture of Hank Locklin that is posted on your top songs of the 60's page is labeled incorrectly. It is not a late 60's look for Hank. It is actually a mid-late 70's look for Hank, taken during his short tenure on Planation Records. A great pic though.
