5.0 out of 5 stars A bluesy classic from 1979 17 Feb 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Hank's music has three main roots – country, blues and rock'n'roll. The blues influence is less evident than the other two on some of his other albums but it is strong on this one. The majority of the album (the first four and the last three tracks) is quite mellow, though three consecutive tracks in the middle (I fought the law, Family tradition, Only Daddy that'll walk the line) pick up the tempo.
Family tradition is one of several great songs that Hank has written about himself and his father. I guess it was written in response to people who said that he wasn't like his father, especially his musical style. In the song, Hank lists all the ways in which he is like his father – drinking, smoking, singing and living out his songs.
Old flame new fire, Always loving you, We can work it all out, I've got rights and I just ain't been able are all great original songs. Paying on time sounds like an old Crystal Gayle song (Dreaming my dreams with you) with new lyrics. There are several excellent covers including To love somebody (Bee Gees), I fought the law (an American hit for Bobby Fuller but revived in the late seventies by British punk rockers The Clash) and Only Daddy that'll walk the line (Waylon Jennings).
This is not the most instantly appealing of Hank's albums but there is a lot of great music here, which grows on you with repeat plays. If you like your country music served with a strong blues flavor, this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Testing the water... 12 Feb 2011
By Doug DePew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This record tests Hank's wings a little more. He has a Bee Gees song on here! It's a good record that's worth buying. I've had mine since it was released the first time, but with the re-release of the older records, newer fans should start collecting.

I recommend "I've Got Rights" to test out. That song will hit anybody who's ever been a victim of a crime. It's a deeply meaningful song.

Try out Family Tradition. It's a good record that's well worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family Tradition (1979) 13 July 2012
By JMH0911 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Recorded in 1978 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, this album blends a bit of the sounds of his three earlier albums with a bit of the stuff that Hank would soon be known for, most notably the title song.
But that dosen't begin to even scratch the surface of how great the rest of this album is. My favorite song ''Always Loving You'' is a song written by the great Steve Young and is a melancholic/nostalgic look back at a love lost with the singer wondering if his love still loves to go walking around the old Union Station (in Montgomery,Alabama) in the rain.

This product apparently is out of production and I was able
to get it used at a reasonable price. It was received in a timely
manner. I have enjoyed this CD, especially the song, "Paying
on Time."
