By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The standard of this album is set by the opening track, the classic A country boy can survive. The coalition to ban coalitions is one those political songs that Hank is so good, but this is one that a lot of people can empathize with to some extent, whatever their own political beliefs. Of course, everybody feels like joining one of those coalitions at some time or other, when things or values they treasure are threatened. Tennessee stud is a cover of the classic horse song by Jimmy Driftwood. Rambling in my shoes is a duet with Boxcar Willie, a singer who achieved fame in the UK but, as I understand, remained virtually unknown in his homeland. Boxcar also contributed the train whistle effects. The title track is a smoldering bluesy song.
All my rowdy friends have settled down, lamenting how his friends no longer spend as much time enjoying themselves drinking, was one of the biggest hits of Hank's hugely successful career. I don't care if tomorrow never comes, a great duet with George Jones, is about having a good time – so perhaps Hank found one rowdy friend he could still drink with. Weatherman is another great bluesy song, in which Hank begs for a change in the weather. Every time I hear that song is another lament, this time remembering someone he misses. The controversial Ballad of Hank Williams, in which Hank makes his views on his father clear to the tune of Battle of New Orleans, completes an outstanding album.
This is, by Hank's standards, quite a mellow album, proving that he can be brilliant even when he's not being rowdy. Although I normally prefer him when he's rowdy, I enjoy both aspects of his music and the strength of the material here ensures that this is one of my favorite albums of his.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank's Best 19 July 2003
By Mark Flickinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely my all-time favorite Hank album. When I was a kid my dad had this on vinyl and I remember listening to it the night before going fishing in Gettysburg, PA. The memories this album conjures up for me are amazing. My favorite song is probably 'Tennessee Stud' with its "Johnny Cash-like" vocal delivery. Of course the classic 'Country Boy Can Survive' is on this one which is very fun to perform at karaoke by the way. Other highlights include 'Ramblin' In My Shoes' featuring the late great Boxcar Willie, 'Mr Weatherman' which reminds one a bit of Eric Clapton's 'Wonderful Tonight', and the title track 'The Pressure Is On' where Hank's Greg Allman influence just shines. In my opinion this CD is a must-have for all country fans. It sounds just as good today as when it was first released and will sound good until we're all gone. It is timeless!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb example of Classic Country/Rockabilly 30 Aug 2001
By Robert S. Zeigler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every element of this album is absolutely perfect. Hank reaches back to the previous generation of Country Music superstars to remake himself and revitalize his career. "A Country Boy can Survive" and "All my Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)" are certainly pure Bocephus, but "Tennessee Stud", a Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs staple is wonderfully re-recorded by Hank Jr. The duets on this album with George Jones ("I Don't Care (If Tomorrow Never Comes)") and Boxcar Willy ("Ramblin' in My Shoes") combine elements of the past with Jr.'s unique style and are just what the doctor ordered. Reaching back the furthest is "The Ballad of Hank Williams", which uses the tune to Johnny Horton's "Battle of New Orleans" to tell of the raucous lifestyle of Bocephus' legendary father and the travails of his band. In my mind, all ten of these songs are pure country gold!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hits.all hits! 16 May 2001
By Vernon Clark Mayo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well the songs "country boy" and "all my rowdy friends (have settled down)" are worth buying it for alone but you also get a duet of hank and george jones on "if tomorrow never comes". I have played this Tape in my van for a long time over and over till i seen the price on this CD and i jumped on it, the price was amazing because i would have payed double that for such classix hank songs, songs that show why hank is one of the best around. This is a must buy for any hank fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hank, Jr. 21 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"A Country Boy Can Survive" is worth the price of the album alone, but the rest of the material is classic Bocephus.
