This project began as a way to get Hank III "on record" by pairing him with his father, Hank Jr. and his long-dead granddad, Hank Sr. Cute idea, and would not have meant much except that Hank III is a budding artist of exceptional promise, and Hank Jr. still has what it takes, and Hank Sr. is well, Hank Sr., and his songs are still great no matter who does what to them, and the producer, Chuck Howard, must be a genius. This album is so much fun to hear, and holds up well after repeated exposure. Wisely, the younger Hanks left Senior's greatest songs alone...they don't take a stab at "You Win Again" or "Cold Cold Heart" or "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." They instead select "I Won't Be Home No More" and nail it in the best version I've ever heard. They also perform "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" and "Men With Broken Hearts", "Lost Highway" and "Never Again Will I Knock on Your Door" in killer renditions. Hank Jr. sings "Hand Me Down", a poignant song of his own about a note his father left him that he didn't discover until he was grown. Even if the song is not literally true, it is wonderfully done. This turned out to be a nice mixture of moods and tempos, and the voices of the three Hanks are just different enough. Don't pay the extra-high price for the IMPORT version, but if you can find this at the cost of a normal U.S. CD, you won't regret it.

I was raised listening to both Hank Williams's honky tonk sound and Hank Jr's pure outlaw sound. I love both. I was pleased to hear that Hank Jr. and Hank III were working together to honor the music of the Williams family. I love Hank Jr's heart felt, "Hand Me Down" and Hank III's duet with his grandfather, who he looks and sounds so much like. In "Hand Me Down" Hank says, talking about a note his father left him, about when it came time to pass the torch to the next generation, "Teach him all of your songs and how his Gradaddy moans and tell that boy to hand me down." Well, Hank certainly did that. Hank III learned how his Grandaddy moaned and can do it, just as well. I think it's only fitting that the three of these men sing "Move It On Over." When Hank Jr. did it, it was like he was telling his father that it was his turn, now Hank III seems to be saying it to his father and grandfather. This was a great album, paying tribute to one of the premier families in country music. Well done!

Once again, it's proved that the music of the elder Hank is timeless. Overdubbed (yes, you purists will hate it!)with "new" country backing with the added voices of Jr. & III. The real treat, though, is Hank III harmonizing with his grandfather! If you like Hank, Sr., you'll like Hank III. All we need now is for Mercury Nashville to re-release the 60's albums of Hank, Sr. & Jr. together on CD.

This is the follow-up to "There's A Tear In My Beer" which now boasts Hank III's participation. Is it just a gimmick just to have a rather short album featuring three generations of musical talent?

Despite its short running time (about a half-hour) it shows how dead closely Hank III's voice resembles Hank William Sr.'s voice. Jr., on the other hand, does have some good vocals as well and is a great counterpoint to the other two voices of his kin.

Two standout tracks on this album are "Where The Soul Of Man Never Dies" where the three Hanks plus Miss Audrey Williams have a great little hoedown. Another is the album's opener "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive". And while I was disappointed with the abbreviated version of "Lost Highway" there is a tiny hidden track which is very cute (is that the daughter of Hank Jr. or III providing the vocals?)

Could it be genius to having all three Hanks on one album? Or is it just a mere gimmick just due to its brief running time? Either way it does sound quite good and is worth a listen now and then. It's not essential but does work as a nice little tribute to the man in that family who first moaned the blues.

Topping this off is the booklet which accompanies the album. If you're new to the music of the Three Hanks at least you can find the original Hank Williams Sr. tracks and compare them to these remakes. The liner notes provide enough information to help get a start on exploring the Three Hanks' music further.

Wow, what a hoot! When I first heard the song There's A Tear In My Beer, which was sung by Hank Williams, Jr. and his late father, I thought that it was one of the greatest songs that I ever heard. At the time I said that I understood why they didn't want to do that too often, but little did I know that there was a whole album like that!

This wonderful album combines the singing talents of Hank Williams Sr., Hank Williams Jr. and the up-and-coming Hank Williams III. The songs are wonderfully produced, and the Hank Williams Sr. vocals go along seamlessly with the rest of the parts. Heck, I even liked what they did with Lost Highway, which features the elder Hank with entirely new music.

Am I gushing? You bet I am! I really enjoy this album, and love listening to it every chance I get. If you like good Country Music, and I mean REALLY GOOD Country Music, then you will like this album. I think that it's great and I highly recommend it.
