Album Review

In the late '70s and early '80s, Molly Hatchet attempted to fill the massive void created by the disintegration of the Allman Brother's Band and the tragic demise of Lynyrd Skynyrd with their own brand of heavy Southern rock. Unfortunately, the Jacksonville sextet could never hope to measure up to their heroes, and the reverent covers of the Allmans' "Dreams I'll Never See" and Skynyrd's "Freebird" contained in Double Trouble Live only serve to expose the huge shadow cast over the band by these Southern Rock giants. Still, this comprehensive live set does a fine job of collecting Molly Hatchet's no fuss rockers ("Whiskey Man," "Bounty Hunter"), extended boogie jams ("Gator Country," "Fall of the Peacemakers"), and melodic rock experiments ("Stone in Your Heart," "Satisfied Man"). On another positive note, "Flirtin' With Disaster" and "Beatin' the Odds" are simply fantastic songs, and two pieces of disposable pop featured on the vinyl version were thankfully excluded from the CD version.

Customer Reviews

Great album! BTW, "Dreams" IS an Allman Bros. song

OK, first of all, this is a great live album of Southern Rock! It's up there with Skynyrd's One More From The Road! MH just isn't MH without Danny Joe Brown, and on this outing, Danny is back with a vengeance! Stone In Your Heart and Satisified Man sound dated with the synths and all, but this recording does date back to 1985, when that sound was very much in vogue on Top 40 radio. So given that perspective, even those songs kick major booty! Highlights are MH's version of Freebird (Danny prefaces the song with a respective tribute to Ronnie Van Zant), and Boogie No More...man, Duane and Dave are just ON FIRE on the outro leads on both those two! Southern guitar rock and roll at its finest!!

The only complaint I have is the wimpy sound on a lot of the tracks...not enough bass...not enough "oomph". Perhaps the original LP sounds better, but this album REALLY needs to be remixed and/or remastered and reissued...it deserves that...WE deserve that!! :-)

Now, about "Dreams"...sure, MH made that song "their own" back on their first album. A GREAT version, no doubt. HOWEVER...any true Allman Bros. fan knows that Gregg Allman wrote that song, and it appears on the first Allman Brothers album. Just wanted to clear that up!

THIS ROCKS

Molly Hatchet rocks. As good or better than Skynyrd. Danny Joe Brown's voice is perfect for this southern rock masterpiece.Gator Country,Flirtin With Disaster & Whiskey Man are my Favorites. Sadly Danny is no longer with us.....But his music lives on. Try Danny solo Album. It rocks too !!! Long Live 70's Rock

This CD rocks!

I just saw "Molly Hatchet" 3/2009 at the local Ribfest. Great music is great music, and live is even better with a band like Hatchet - but no original guys in the band anymore, and that made it a good cover band playing GREAT music (including "Free Bird"). A few days later, I played DOUBLE-TROUBLE LIVE, and the smile on my face couldn't have been bigger! The original Molly Hatchet caught live was incredible (if you ever got to see them), hearing them live on this CD is the best thing to being there. 3-roaring lead guitars and DJB dishin' out killer vocals. Crank it up - there's only one MOLLY HATCHET. Enjoy!
