Album Review

"And Friends" is right. Hank Williams, Jr.'s first step off the Hank Sr. bandwagon — against all counsel from his mother and managers — is a doozy of a record. Teaming with Toy Caldwell, Charlie Daniels, Pete Carr, and producer Dick Glasser, among others, Bocephus turned in one of the most inspiring performances of his career. First there is his read of Marshall Tucker's classic "Can't You See" that is wrought with so much emotion it literally spills from the band toward his tortured vocal. Next there are two of Hank Jr.'s own classics, "Stoned at the Jukebox," which has been covered by any country star worth his or her salt, and his personal anthem, "Living Proof." He dared fate on this one, coming off an attempted suicide and preceding a fall 600 feet down a mountain. But he was indeed "Living Proof" that he could survive his father's legend and do something noteworthy of his own. On top of all this are amazing renditions of "Brothers of the Road" and his own "Montana Song." Though it's brief, it smokes; Hank Williams, Jr. & Friends stands as a personal watermark for Bocephus; it is one of the best country-rock albums ever made and stands with the best of the outlaw recordings of the era.

Customer Reviews

Very solid album

I dont know how many people 'kind of' like Hank Jr, seems you do or don't. I liked some of his more laid back stuff versus the corny political, in your face obnoxiousness. This album surprised me, I guess...because its honest and not what I'd expect from him. A very solid album.

One of the Best Hank, Jr. Albums Ever ! !

My brother and I had this album on 8-track and virtually wore it out. Before it was completely gone, I managed to dub it onto a cassette and we kept playing it. Basically, what I am saying is get this and listen to it. You will like it if you like Hank. Two of my favorites are On Susan's Floor and Clovis, N.M. As I think about it, I could keep naming more and more favorite songs from this CD. I can't think of any songs on here that are not good!!!!! Buy this album!!!!!!

Classic

The best album he has made by far. A must have for any alt. country fan. This was before all his overly specific lyrics and bragging.

Genre: Country

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The offspring of famous musicians often have a hard time creating a career for themselves, yet Hank Williams, Jr. is one of the few to develop a career that is not only successful, but markedly different from his legendary father. Originally, Hank Jr. simply copied and played his father's music, but as he grew older, he began to carve out his own niche and it was one that owed as much to country-rock as it did to honky tonk. In the late '70s, he retooled his image to appeal both to outlaw country...
