Editorial Reviews

As illustrated by Long Gone Daddy, Curb's new career-spanning sampler of Hank III songs, this third generation Hank has never veered from being fiercely independent while staying true in spirit to the path blazed by his family.

"Tidy" is not a word often associated with the against-the-grain work of Hank III, but it s a fitting way to describe the way Long Gone Daddy packages up a full-bodied sampling of his career, style and influences.

This 10-song collection could have been titled Long Gone Granddaddy for the shuffling country blues flavor of not just the Hank Williams covers but of much of the batch.

Grandpa s contributions, title track "I m A Long Gone Daddy" and "Neath A Cold Gray Tomb of Stone," are complemented by fiddle and steel-drenched songs written by generations he influenced, including Merle Haggard ("The Bottle Let Me Down"), Johnny Cash ("Wreck of the Old 97") and Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson ("Good Hearted Woman").

The singer-songwriter Hank Williams influenced most, on this record at least, is Hank III, whose remarkable vocal, including yodeling sendoff on the title track, would have been just right on a circa 1950 Grand Ole Opry or Louisiana Hayride stage.

A collection of six previously unreleased recordings and four resurrected from prior releases, the album is an exclamation point on the style and mood of Hank III s 1999 Risin Outlaw breakthrough and acclaimed follow-up Lovesick Broke & Driftin .

As "This Ain t Montgomery," a lament of the state of modern country, states: "Hank Williams is dead and he ain t comin back here again."

True, of course. But he d be proud of his grandson.

Customer Reviews

Hank Williams III brought back what country music is all about.
mountaingirl
Very good CD, one of the best III has put out, sounds just like Hank Sr. in some of his songs.

Just download this album and do not give Curb Records your money.

Much has been made of the bitter split between Hank and Curb. I won't comment on the politics of that, but instead, I'll focus on the music. Whether you want to buy it or get it another way, is up to you. Having said that, if you like Hank's first two albums, chances are that you'll like this one, too. These aren't new recordings, but they're from the Rising Outlaw era of his music, when he stuck to the more traditional country end of things.

I know artists have to progress, but this album makes me miss the older stuff. Now, I know that the hardcore hellbillies will disagree with me, and say that the stuff he puts out now is truer to who he is. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but I do know that I like traditional country music the way Hank used to do it, without the screaming, drug and Satan references, dogs barking, etc. I think he'll put out some better stuff in the future, but he's even said, himself, that it would be hard for him to top his "Straight to Hell" album, which many consider to be his all-time best. Seems to me that even he realizes how high he set the bar for himself.

I just hope that he doesn't stop making traditional country albums, altogether.

DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!! This album is just another desperate and pathetic attempt by Mike Curb to make one more buck off Hank 3's name while he still can. All of these tracks have already been released anyways. Do like Shelton says now and pirate this one and help Curb Records crumble to the ground.

1. I'm A Long Gone Daddy - previously released on "Timeless: Hank Williams Tribute"
2. Sun Comes Up - studio version of a popular live track that was available on the "Live from Scotland" bootleg
3. The Bottle Let Me Down - new??
4. Wreck Of The Old 97 - previously released on the Johnny Cash tribute "Dressed in Black" from 2002
5. Neath A Cold Grey Tomb Of Stone - previously released on "Three Hanks"
6. The Wind Blew Cold - new??
7. Good Hearted Woman - studio version is new, but you can find better live cuts on youtube
8. This Ain t Montgomery - w/ Joey Allcorn - originally released on Allcorn's debut album
9. What They Want Me To Be - This song is "Trashville" remixed
10. If The Shoe Fits - Shuffle Mix - Hank would never do this to one of his songs.

So to recount, there are 4 "new" songs on here....well, really 2 new Hank III songs. "The Bottle Let Me Down" and "The Wind Blew Cold" appear to be completely new. "Sun Comes Up" and "Good Hearted Woman" are new studio versions to songs that Hank performed live. Remember, Hank3 didn't release this album, Curb Records did. Any official release going forward will be under the Hank3 name, not Hank Williams III.

THIS is what I like to hear out of Hank III, although I know his purist fans will hate me for saying so. What can I say? I was born in Montgomery, Ala., cut my teeth on his grandaddy's music, and I can't help being the way I am any more than he can being the way he is. So, when he goes back to his roots, it warms my heart, and I love it. I wish I could hear more of it, although as time goes by, I guess that dream dies. I don't care about Curb and the fued, I just like the a time when music was something was something I wasn't afraid for anyone to hear coming out of my car speakers turned up loud. I'm an old guy, I don't want profanity laden screeching. Even if I am still a child of the sixties, in my heart I'm still a good ole boy from Bama. Roll Tide. Love Hank and his boys.

There are plenty of ways to get the music on this album that don't involve purchasing it. If you are a Hank 3 fan and supporter, you'll find another way.

This reminds me of the old days. Going to live shows in 1997. I like it! Bought it as soon as I heard it even though I had most of the songs anyway.

This cd is just early outtakes from Hank III's beginning. They're actually pretty darn good. I like it very much because it sounds a lot like his first cd. IMO Hank has strayed from his roots a little bit just from owning his last cd. This one is great an well worth buying even if Hank doesn't want you to. Just get it and you will be satisfied. cheers TyT a Hank III believer

Beware of Curb
I was excited until I saw that Curb was putting this out. F' them. Just saw 3 in Raleigh two weeks ago. I'd rather never hear it or wait for Hank 3 to release those songs on his own before supporting the label that held him back for all those years.
