This is what I've been looking for in country music - not watered down, twangy soft rock, but authentic unashamed country music.
Like we used to say during deployments to Saudi Arabia - "that's good drinkin' music - and it's all that and more. The album has some witty lyrics and just some great songs. It's been in my CD players for a couple of weeks and may end up a permanent resident.
I picked up III's first album on a recommendation from a friend. And I really liked it. It had been out over a year, but it was brand new to me. I hadn't heard anyone from my generation make good country music. I thought it was a lost art. Well, it's not.
LB&D is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Do yourself a big favor and buy it. I guarantee that if you like old country you will like this album. Who knows, it may be the start of a great musical journey as it was for me.
I am a convert and consider myself a fan. His live shows are even better. So if you see III playing within driving distance, hit the road. His live shows are not to be missed. And if you like heavy stuff, stay for the encore.
Hank III does sound like his famous grandfather, but at the same time he has a very unique delivery and knows how to tell a story in a song. The songs on this CD range from mellow, old-timey numbers like the title track, "Atlantic City", "One Horse Town" and "5 Shots of Whiskey" to the rollicking good time "Nighttime Ramblin' Man" (which has some incredible instrumental work!). My favorite songs are "Cecil Brown" with its great bass, the angst-filled "Walkin' With Sorrow" and "Trashville" is also a standout as a f-you kind of song. Hank III does it his way and can never be accused of hiding behind his name.
