Editorial Reviews

Limited edition tin with three CD set. Parental Advisory for Explicit Content. As the name indicates, Hank Williams III is the third in a line of country music royalty, son of Hank Williams Jr. and grandson to the man they simply called Hank. While Hank III is certainly as much of a hell-raiser as his pop and grandaddy, his style of music owes much more of a debt to the traditional styles of Hank I than the rowdy country-rock of his father. That said, Hank III has a rock-&-roll spirit previously unimaginable in the Williams family. With his band Assjack and side-project Superjoint Ritual (with former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo), Hank III indulges in hardcore punk and power metal, taking the image of the country outlaw to extreme new levels.

If you're not familiar with Hank Williams III, then well... the name should explain it all! He's the grandson of Hank Williams and the son of Hank Williams, Jr. The similarity of his voice to that of his grandfather's is uncanny and to get a good idea of what his music is like, just imagine Hank Williams, Sr. singing over rowdy Country music about drugs, booze, Satan, and women! There is absolutely no resemblance whatsoever of his estranged father and if you're a Hank Jr. fan, you may be in for a disappointment with this type of music. But then again, I am neither a Hank Jr. fan OR a Country music fan, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I appreciate Hank Williams III for his style, attitude, associations, and incorporation of the whole Punk Rock vibe into his music, thus making me a fan.

This Collector's set is basically just Hank's first three (III) albums (RISIN' OUTLAW, LOVESICK BROKE AND DRIFTIN', and STRAIGHT TO HELL) in the same individual packaging and collectively placed in a cool tin, which bears Hank's trademark fiddle-playing Devil on the front.

I already own all of those albums and don't plan on buying this set because I'm not really a Hank III collector. However, judging by the EXTREMELY low price of this item it's needless to say that I highly recommend this set for new fans or hardcore fans of this great, rebellious Country artist.

Couldn't agree more with the other review. Although I'm bummed that it's nothing more than the first three albums in a metal tin, its also is nice to have a unique holder for them and as stated earlier, it's nice to replace those old beat up cds that have been played to death. I wish that I was just starting to like Hank cuz it would be awsome to grab all three albums at once rather than shelling out 40 or 50 bucks for the three on their own. So pick it up if you are a new fan or an old grizzled vet like me. Look for the new album at the end of October as well.

I've been holding off buying Hank III's "Straight To Hell" album. But nothing prepared me to find not just that album but Hank III's previous two albums on the Curb Records label in a tin for $14.99.

For those who don't have these three albums this is a magnificent value from an artist who is above and beyond what his namesake suggests. His voice is eerily reminiscent of his grandfather mixed in with the showmanship of his daddy steeped in oldskool outlaw country attitude with some heavy punk influence thrown in for good measure. Nothing in this set is watered down at all. This is authentic country music brought back alive and kickin' and leavin' its indelible footprints afterwards.

While the old outlaws of country are slowly going away Hank III's vitality means that it ain't goin' away without a hellbent fight to the death.

This set is a must-own! Buy a couple for yourself and your friends! You could pay $18.99 just for "Straight To Hell" or get all of this for $14.99! Very good stuff! It's money well spent and you may wind up making a few new friends along the way.

In any case (of whiskey or circumstance, depending on your perspective) this makes all those "Friends In Low places" seem like posers. This makes "pop country" sound as false, emasculated and pretentious as Hank III makes it out to be. And he's damn right!

It is hard to beat this deal. You are getting three (and a half) CDs for the price of one. All of the CDs are good in their own right. The third one shows Hank's demonic side coming out more and by demonic side, I mean SATAN!! Seriously. the guy is trying to turn everything on it's head. As he says, his granddad sang about the "light" and he sings about the "dark."

It's the first three Curb releases of Hank Williams III. If you like your CD's in a tin box this is for you. If you don't know the work of Hank Williams III than this is for you. Very affordable. Don't buy the edited version that Wal*Mart will sell you.
