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.

Only reason this does not have all stars is this price is pretty steep now. Still, its worth it for the music, Hank has just gotten better and better with each release, be it country or his punk/metal stuff. I just wish he would offically release those early bootlegs. Some songs haven't been released on any other legit release.
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. Even if you already own one or even two out of the three albums featured in this set, you should definitely buy this. You'll be getting the remaining album(s) AND a collector's tin for pretty much the same price, if not a few dollars more. Also, according to this item's description, the STRAIGHT TO HELL bonus disc is included, which features the song "Louisiana Stripes" as well as a very impressive twenty minute or so medley of a lot of Ambient noise, some bootleg Acoustic songs, and a cover of Cheech and Chong's "Up In Smoke".
Hank III is more Punk than most 'Punk' bands out there and his music (especially STRAIGHT TO HELL) is a reflection of that. If you like rowdy, pickup truck drivin', beer drinkin', shotgun blastin' Country that gives a big middle finger to the whole Pop Country scene, then Hank III is your huckleberry and this set of albums is where you need to start.
