Product Description

As illustrated by Long Gone Daddy, this 2012 career-spanning sampler of Hank III songs, this third generation Hank has never veered from being fiercely independent while staying true in spirit to the path blazed by his family. "Tidy" is not a word often associated with the against-the-grain work of Hank III, but it s a fitting way to describe the way Long Gone Daddy packages up a full-bodied sampling of his career, style and influences. This 10-song collection could have been titled Long Gone Granddaddy for the shuffling country blues flavor of not just the Hank Williams covers but of much of the batch. The singer-songwriter Hank Williams influenced most, on this record at least, is Hank III, whose remarkable vocal, including yodeling sendoff on the title track, would have been just right on a circa 1950 Grand Ole Opry or Louisiana Hayride stage. A collection of six previously unreleased recordings and four resurrected from prior releases, the album is an exclamation point on the style and mood of Hank III s 1999 Risin Outlaw breakthrough and acclaimed follow-up Lovesick Broke & Driftin .

HASH(0xa0f5c5a0) out of 5 stars You'll still like the music..... April 25 2012
By Guitarzan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Much has been made of the bitter split between Hank and Curb. I won't comment on the politics of that, but instead, I'll focus on the music. Whether you want to buy it or get it another way, is up to you. Having said that, if you like Hank's first two albums, chances are that you'll like this one, too. These aren't new recordings, but they're from the Rising Outlaw era of his music, when he stuck to the more traditional country end of things.

I know artists have to progress, but this album makes me miss the older stuff. Now, I know that the hardcore hellbillies will disagree with me, and say that the stuff he puts out now is truer to who he is. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but I do know that I like traditional country music the way Hank used to do it, without the screaming, drug and Satan references, dogs barking, etc. I think he'll put out some better stuff in the future, but he's even said, himself, that it would be hard for him to top his "Straight to Hell" album, which many consider to be his all-time best. Seems to me that even he realizes how high he set the bar for himself.

I just hope that he doesn't stop making traditional country albums, altogether.

HASH(0xa0f5c7ec) out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Album April 17 2012
By Jacob Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!! This album is just another desperate and pathetic attempt by Mike Curb to make one more buck off Hank 3's name while he still can. All of these tracks have already been released anyways. Do like Shelton says now and pirate this one and help Curb Records crumble to the ground.

HASH(0xa0f5ca2c) out of 5 stars For better or for worse May 8 2012
By zoeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS is what I like to hear out of Hank III, although I know his purist fans will hate me for saying so. What can I say? I was born in Montgomery, Ala., cut my teeth on his grandaddy's music, and I can't help being the way I am any more than he can being the way he is. So, when he goes back to his roots, it warms my heart, and I love it. I wish I could hear more of it, although as time goes by, I guess that dream dies. I don't care about Curb and the fued, I just like the a time when music was something was something I wasn't afraid for anyone to hear coming out of my car speakers turned up loud. I'm an old guy, I don't want profanity laden screeching. Even if I am still a child of the sixties, in my heart I'm still a good ole boy from Bama. Roll Tide. Love Hank and his boys.

HASH(0xa0f5cca8) out of 5 stars Reasons why you shouldn't buy this "album" April 17 2012
By Josh Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
1. I'm A Long Gone Daddy - previously released on "Timeless: Hank Williams Tribute"
2. Sun Comes Up - studio version of a popular live track that was available on the "Live from Scotland" bootleg
3. The Bottle Let Me Down - new??
4. Wreck Of The Old 97 - previously released on the Johnny Cash tribute "Dressed in Black" from 2002
5. Neath A Cold Grey Tomb Of Stone - previously released on "Three Hanks"
6. The Wind Blew Cold - new??
7. Good Hearted Woman - studio version is new, but you can find better live cuts on youtube
8. This Ain t Montgomery - w/ Joey Allcorn - originally released on Allcorn's debut album
9. What They Want Me To Be - This song is "Trashville" remixed
10. If The Shoe Fits - Shuffle Mix - Hank would never do this to one of his songs.

So to recount, there are 4 "new" songs on here....well, really 2 new Hank III songs. "The Bottle Let Me Down" and "The Wind Blew Cold" appear to be completely new. "Sun Comes Up" and "Good Hearted Woman" are new studio versions to songs that Hank performed live. Remember, Hank3 didn't release this album, Curb Records did. Any official release going forward will be under the Hank3 name, not Hank Williams III.

HASH(0xa0f5caa4) out of 5 stars Simple and outstanding Sept. 17 2012
By Marc Mackey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Hank III, have seen him live twice and own just about all his stuff except the more recent Assjack hardcore metal. I don't know what the politics with Curve is, and don't care, because I love this album. It's familiar and likeable for anybody who likes Lovesick, Broke, and Driftin' - classic country / cowboy music. There are three throwaway tracks however, "Trashville" and "If the Shoe Fits" remixes, and "the bottle let me down". But, the album is worth $15 for the 7 other really outstanding tracks. Add it to your Hank III collection, especially if you like the country side of Hank III. This is the best Hank since Risin' Outlaw, and makes me want to mix this up with the best of Lovesick.
