Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the Country great. Though he was the son of a Country Music legend, Hank Jr. has managed to carve out his own career in the same genre as his father while remaining unique and independent. 127 Rose Avenue features the hit 'Red, White & Pink-Slip Blues'.

Hank Jr is a lodestar many younger artists should aspire to emulate. At age 60, while many of his peers have long hung up their boots or resigned to singing at Branson (the cemetery of country music), this ferocious honky tonk rocker is still signed to a major label and making visits to the Billboard country charts. And it doesn't come as a surprise that the secret to his longevity is his ability to connect with the changing times. Not that his music morphs with trends. Rather, Hank Jr. is not afraid of addressing issues our modern society faces in his own candid, gutsy and masculine ways without going all mawkish. Thus, in many ways he has become the voice of Middle America without the garnish of societal posh. "127 Rose Avenue," Hank Jr's first full length CD of new material in 6 years, finds its zip code in such a territory. Whether it's child abuse, the current economic recession, domestic mismatch, this Junior Bocephus takes them on with penetrating poignancy.

With its militant beat and its hell-raising guitars, on the opener "The Farm" Hank Jr shows all the younger country rock acts how it is to rock with an unapologetic abandon. While current single "Red, White and Pink Slip Blues" ought to strike a chord with victims of the current economic recession via the story's main character, a millworker who had been given the boot after his factory closed down. Writer Steven Dale Jones' attention paid to the song's moving storyline is what makes this a worthy hit for Hank Jr.

Exceptional music & vocals. Was able to see Hank perform on Fox, encouraged me to purchase this cd. I was not disappointed! I am not a big long time Hank fan, however I do enjoy some of his past recordings. I am a former musician that takes alot of pride in my choice of music.(mostly blues or old rock)This cd is truly something special.When Hank hits those low notes it will send chills up your spine. I assure you that I do not listen to junk, and I believe this cd will become a much loved classic. If you are a lover of great music, especially country, blues or rock, you will not be disappointed in this purchase. It is already one of my favorites, and will be for years to come.

The is a GREAT new release by Hank Jr. "Ole Hank would be proud and Memphis would too, we like our Country, mixed with some Rhythym & Blues" -(Words from Hank Jr.'s "We are Young Country"). I know he has been wanting to do a blues oriented cd for quite some time, and now it's finally here. Not all the songs are blues, but it has a "bluesy" theme to it. I saw Hank Jr. perform live, last year, on his "Rowdy Frynds" Tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd. He is an excellent entertainer as well as an excellent singer, and song writer. This album CD proves it.

The songs are as follows:

1.Farm Song (This is a country "rap" song, very well performed by Hank Jr. It even has a guest perfomance of Robert Randolph on the pedal steel guitar. He is "awesome" on the pedal steel guitar. He performs on Eric Clapton's guitar festival DVD of 2004, that was filmed in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Robert also is a guest artist on Third Day's "Live Revelations" DVD/CD.

2.Red, White and Pink Slip Blues (A very relevant song for the times we're living in now!)

3.High Maintenance Woman (This is his song, not Toby Keith's song).

4.Mighty Oak Trees

5.Forged by Fire

6.Last Drifting Cowboy (His Dad's band were the "Drifting Cowboys", The last member died during 2008, his name was Don Helms, he was the steel guitar player - This is a tribute song, honoring the "last drifting cowboy - Mr.Don Helms". The song even includes a portion of Hank Sr.& the drifting cowboy's song "Honky Tonk Blues" which features Don Helm's steel guitar playing. Hank Jr. does a excellent job of paying tribute to this "Last Drifting Cowboy - Don Helms".

7.127 Rose Avenue (This was Hank Sr.'s address, not in Nashville, not in Montgomery perhaps Georgiana AL, or Greenville, AL?

If there has been one thing Bocephus has been all his life, it is consistent. It is clear that he just likes playing music and jammin' and he picks his songs accordingly. This CD is similar in his long line of old-fashioned honky tonkin'. There are some near classics here -- 127 Rose Ave and Mighty Oak Trees -- and a lot of good R&B country honky tonkin'. There are songs he penned, as well as ones he's picked. It is clear that he knows his songwriting limits and is willing to use other writers' material and not force a whole CD of his own material. Whenever we have a barbecue or are sittin' 'round the fire pit, it is great just to put the entire Hank Jr. collection on shuffle and enjoy.

There are a couple songs here that sound a bit derivative of other recent songs -- "Mighty Oak Trees" reminds me of Van Zant's "Things I Miss the Most" and "High Maintenance Woman" reminds me of the Toby Keith song. Yes, they are different, but one has to admit that Hank took a cue from these other songs.

Bottom line,though, is that Hank Jr. keeps on producing great music.
