5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be Feelin Better May 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Feelin Better is one of the great Hank Williams Jr. songs that never made it to the radio. You'll never find it on a greatest hits album, so pick it up on this cd. Like many Hank Jr. tunes, it's autobiographical, but this one ranks right up there with Family Tradition. A careful listen will reveal outlaw great Waylon Jennings adding his unique guitar sound to the track.
Although that song alone is worth the six bucks for the cd, you get a whole lot more. Hank Jr.'s cover of "Uncle Pen" puts Ricky Scaggs' to shame. Belting out Gordon Lightfoot's "Looking At the Rain" in a baritone voice, Hank Jr. proves he can make even a hippy song sound manly.
If you're like me and love Hank Jr.'s late seventies early eighties raw honky tonk rock-a-billy sound, then you'll love this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Quantum Shift Starts Here September 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I imagine I'll be taken to the mat by more than a few on this...But, Hank's upward trajectory really starts here with "The New South" album and not "Hank Williams Jr. & Friends"(I am reviewing the original New South and not anything that has greatest hits or whatever added to the title). This is simply due to the fact the earlier album, though it had fantastic songs and great guests, was marred by too heavy handed production. This album, while not rough, is the polar opposite. Everything here fits and rings true and doesn't sound forced in anyway. In fact, it sounds like a real talent from within finding it's footing without embellishment. I think the quantum shift in a career that looking back on would even make the "old man" a bit jealous, though "peacock proud", actually started with this somewhat underappreciated album.

When I discovered this album I was about 16 and still in high school. I was an open book to Hank. Strangely enough my earlier link to anything about him was that he recently moved to my hometown of Cullman, Alabama and my part time job as a furniture delivery boy took me to his house. It was a difficult time, I'm sure, as at first he wasn't even there, but in a hospital because of his now famous Ajax mountain accident. When he finally was able to come to his new home he was still bandaged and in the process of recouperation. Thus, I cannot really say I ever got to know the man, but I feel this album introduced me to him. In over 30 years it hasn't lost it's grip as it still sounds wonderful...Every track in fact.

I'll give Hank credit for knowing what he needed to do, but many don't know just how instrumental his new manager (at the time), James R. Smith was in providing the atmosphere and support that nurtured it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Country September 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A great album. Part blues, part country-rock, part acoustic. Pure heart. Pure Hank. One of the very few country albums I can listen to from start to finish.

I am a big fan of hank jr and i have been getting all his CD's as i can. So i grabbed this one and boy am i glad i did, it's wonderful with a good blend of country and southern rock Hank does so well. SOngs like "New south" the title track i could listen to over and over for weeks....and in fact i do! if your a fan of Hanks or just good music then i can't see why you would pass it up...and the price is not bad either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost A Cult Classic June 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pre-Family Tradition, but after Hank finally embraced his own personna and got rid of those leeches in Nashville that just wanted to market him as the son of Hank Williams. In the early 80's I had 7 different Bocephus recordings, mostly on 8 track ;-). This one tested the waters for what was to become a phenomenon. If this had gone bad, there most likely wouldn't have been a Family Tradition, Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound, or The Pressure Is On, etc. This represents the day Hank said to himself, "sure, my name is Hank Williams, but I'm not my dad." The rest is country music history. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still New February 3, 2007
By Shed It
Format:Audio CD
I found this album 27 something years ago, saw Hank in concert around then and they didn't even play New South. Asked one of the bandmembers why, and he said dunno, they usually play that one, maybe hank forgot (he did look a little tipsy). You never know....anyway all forgiven when Family Tradition and Hell Bound came out. If you want real country and real Hank Jr, get at least these three.

Back then I listened to it because it was great country, now since there's no more country, I listen to it even more.

I have always liked Hank Jr. This is another CD to add to the collection. There are not too many that I don't have, and I have many duplicates.
