By the time of this album's 1966 release, Thompson was already two years removed from his tenure at Capitol. His then-former label pulled this 12-pack from tracks Thompson recorded in the late '50s and early 60's, including the 1961 title smash. Like many of the albums Thompson recorded in the late '50s, Capitol assembled this one along a thematic line, with bars and drinking at the center of every song.

Thompson's Western Swing is equally at home on the two-stepping "Honky Tonk Town" as it is on the polkas "Beer Barrel Polka" and "Bartender's Polka." His voice is warm and surprisingly upbeat given the tenor of the material. His 1952 smash "The Wild Side of Life" is heard here is a 1962 remake (though not the stereo of which the liner notes speak), retaining its pathos even with the undercutting of a choral background. Better yet is Allen Flatt's "A Broken Heart and a Glass of Beer," which manages to swing along even as tears soak the bar.

Besides rounding up a nice collection of drinking-related titles, Capitol also picked sides on which legendary guitarist Merle Travis lent his distinctive leads. Thompson's Brazos Valley Boys add superb support with fine steel and fiddle throughout. Most of Thompson's original theme albums remain out of print (e.g., "Songs for Rounders"), but lucky for us, Capitol did a fine job of assembling this one, and Sundazed has returned it to domestic print.

"Six-Pack To Go" was my radio theme song for over a decade on the air... and it's a doozy of a song! Nice to see it in print along withthe rest of this fun album. Great stuff from one of the biggest and best stars in classic country. Highly recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Hick Music)

Hank does the great Cindy Walker song 'Bubbles in My Beer' on this disc. I think it's the only time he recorded it. A little different take than the Bob Wills/Tommy Duncan version. A lot of other great songs but this one alone makes buying the disc worthwhile.

HANK THOMPSON-A SIX PACK TO GO: It's not for nothing that the crowd pleasing HANK THOMPSON fostered a country music career that lasted over half a century...no singer embodied the spirit of honky tonk hangovers and after hours saloon sing alongs quite like him. The mid sixties concept album A SIX PACK TO GO, named after one of his most memorable sudsers, was assembled by Capitol a few years after he parted ways with the label. From the haunting strains of DRUNKARD'S BLUES (ST. JAMES INFIRMARY by any other name) to a bouncy cover of BOB WILLS' BUBBLES IN MY BEER, the BRAZOS VALLEY BOYS, MERLE TRAVIS' electric six string leads and HANK's engaging "been there" vocals make this platter an irresistible treasure. A decent update of his own 1952 career maker WILD SIDE OF LIFE, the stylish ANYBODY'S GIRL and a rollicking run through of BEER BARREL POLKA help keep the steel guitar 'n fiddle party flowing with boot scootin' effervescence, every heartache drowned in blasts of Lone Star beer and blessed western swing nirvana.

RATING: FIVE PULL TOPS
