CD reviews for Hank Williams III

Ghost to Ghost/Guttertown CD review - Ghost to Ghost/Guttertown
Free at last, free at last, thanks God almighty, he is free at last. After years of self-proclaimed indentured servitude to Mike Curb - a period that saw III hawking F*** Curb T-shirts at his shows and encouraging fans to download his albums for free - Hank III has finally shed his contractual obligations to the man and label that reined in his diversity and vision over the past decade. In other words, III is now legally doing all the things that he's done for years in middle-finger defiance »»»
Hillbilly Joker CD review - Hillbilly Joker
Call it hellbilly, deathneck or thrashgrass - any way you spin it, but don't think ol' Hank done it this way. His grandson Hank III, however, has developed a fervent following of fans that appreciate those niche genres' unlikely blends of country, shock rock and metal. And while it's certainly not the same old tune, his last six major label releases (and a spattering of bootleg compilations) have added new layers to the Williams family's musical legacy. »»»
Rebel Within CD review - Rebel Within
The turbulent 14-year relationship between Hank Williams III and Curb Records ends with this release, and while Williams certainly seizes the opportunity to take one last jab at Curb he also delivers some good tunes on his way out the door. He kicks it off with Getting Drunk And Falling Down, a straight ahead honky tonk tune in which Williams begins to take a serious look at the consequences of his lifestyle ("Getting drunk and falling down has taken it's toll on me/ I like living life »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man – Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it – Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker. Bluegrass may not be the first style of music when one thinks of William Apostol's (yup, that's Billy's real name) home state of Michigan, but with more miles on the bus and shows like this outstanding, lengthy, lyrical night... »»»

When The Mavericks call an album "Play The Hits," It really should be qualified as "Play The Selective Hits" because this band has never been especially interested in performing only what's commercially viable.  »»»
