Rock on, Bocephus!
on February 6, 2001
"Hank Live" is a wonderfully rowdy album which shows off the rockin' side of Hank Williams Jr. -- and if you've ever heard him, you know that he LOVES to rock -- better than any other album of Hank's, I feel.
It features some audiences that are rowdy as all hell, some fancy guitar work, and, of course, BOCEPHUS.
Among the stand-out tracks are "My Name Is Bocephus," "Workin' For MCA," "Sweet Home Alabama," "La Grange," "If You Don't Like Hank Williams," and the medley of "Family Tradition" and "Hey, Good Lookin'." Hank also does an acoustic medley, which is great, and we get a cool acoustic version of "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)" that includes some singing along from the crowd and some ad-libbing (there is a lot of that on this album). Another song that shouldn't be overlooked is Merle Kilgore's version of "I Ain't Gonna Call Hank Williams Jr. 'Junior' Anymore," which is a good start to a great album.
All in all, I think you'll really enjoy this one.
