The sound is heavy southern rock.

And if there's one thing the ORIGINAL Molly Hatchet knew how to do, it was ROCK.

This was one of Molly Hatchest's more popular l.p.'s from the late 70's (1979). Certainly by the late 70's with new wave/punk becoming popular had a major effect on southern rock. Artists such as Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, The Outlaws and Charlie Daniels were the last of the southern groups to still play dedicated southern powered rock. Lynyrd Skynyrd was no more due to the terrible plane crash that killed several members of the group. Other southern rock groups had either changed their style or had broken up. Still Molly Hatchet continued to use their three guitar attack to put out great southern rock with the help of Danny Joe Brown's vocals. This l.p. included some great songs such as the title track, Whiskey Man, Boogie No More as well as their rendition of The Rolling Stone's 60's hit "It's all over Now"! This expanded edition also includes live versions of "Flirtin' with Disaster" as well as Molly Hatchet's version of Cream's live guitar driven version of "Crossroads". All in all this is a nicely packaged edition of a great cd. REmastering is excellent and is superior to the first version of this cd which may have used second generation tapes.

Those who read my other reviews may note that I haven't gotten into Southern rock. I suppose it's because number one, the Allman Brothers put me to sleep (with the exception of "Dreams") and Lynyrd Skynrd are too overplayed. I don't care if I NEVER hear "Sweet Home Alabama" again.
Southern rock has always tread on the boundary with country, which gives most of it the swing that defines it. We hear a healthy dose of blues and (usually) anthems of boozing, womanizing and basically kicking somebody's ass.
What sets the original Molly Hatchet apart from the rest is their heavy sound. Three guitars up front, triple leads, wicked slide and a boozy vocalist combine for the hardest of all Southern rock albums, "Flirting With Disaster."
Led by guitarist Dave Hlubek, this rowdy bunch swings and has a great time throughout. It's like having a good time at a bar but hoping you don't piss these guys off because they won't hesitate to mop up the floor with you, especially Duane Roland, he of the muttonchops and shades. This is a band that would intimidate the Hells Angels.
Still, it's a friendly outing. "One Man's Pleasure" bumps headlong into country territory and then obliterates it with scorching lead breaks and the wickedest slide you'll hear this side of Oz. "Jukin' City" is a nod to the Allman Brothers, and the title track reigns supreme as the best Southern rock song of all time (second place goes to "Train, Train" from Blackfoot.)
It moves quick and stays heavy enough to satisfy metalheads as well as good ol' boys. Plus, there are four additional tracks, three live, including a great reading of "Crossroad Blues."
Molly Hatchet exists today with no original band members, relegating them basically as a cover band.

This is a great record. The band picks up where Lynyrd Skynyrd left off. The boogie crunch guitar riffs are cool. The sound is heavy southern rock. It has some catchy songs on it like the title track, "Jukin' City",and every other song on this disc. If you like southern rock, this is a must for your collection.

I had an 8-track of this album back in 1979. It was a great cruising tape in a Trans Am. Love the guitars.

Of all the southern rock albums that have been released this is the best of them. Each and every song is great to sing along with. Buy the album, you won't be dissappointed.

I first heard Molly Hatchet on the radio in 1980. I actually got Flirtin' With Disaster on vinyl at a garage sale a few years later. Why anybody would let this album go is a mystery to me, but I'm glad they did. I love good southern rock and this album is just that. A good mix of hard rockin' jams and down home diddies. All done with Molly Hatchet's unique style. This expanded version is awesome!The live cuts from a Jacksonville, FL show in 1980 are especially cool to hear. A must have for southern rockers of all ages!!

It seems every southern rock band had a distinct style, though many times it was subtle and hardly noticeable until you'd take the time to listen to them repeatedly. However, Molly Hatchet does NOT fall under this category. Right away you can tell Molly Hatchet is different from the rest. These songs are not only incredibly catchy, they downright *rock*. In terms of sheer rock and roll, this band isn't even in the same category as the Allman Brothers Band or Lynyrd Skynyrd. I guess you can say Molly Hatchet is part of the heaviest aspect of the southern rock genre. That's pretty much a fact.

Now I personally don't feel this is *quite* heavy enough to be considered heavy metal, but if someone wants to disagree I'd totally understand. It's really close whether they are or not.

I haven't heard an album make such an important statement like this one does in a long time. "Whiskey Man" opens with a bang, and that's an understatement. The rhythm resembles the Aerosmith classic "Same Old Song and Dance" but this is honestly much MUCH better than that song ever was. A fantastic chorus and guitar soloing that... well I guess the guitar work *is* pretty heavy metal-like after all. I stand corrected! "It's All Over Now" is a cover song. I believe Rod Stewart's version is my favorite, but who knows really. This is a fast-paced, totally rocking out version. It's highly memorable. I can't help but compare the final minute of guitar and bass work to that of Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me". Just a slight resemblance there.

"One Man's Pleasure" is sort of like one mans treasure, but relating to women and love of course! I really like the funky rhythm and the guitar solo.
