5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Hank from 1979 31 Mar 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While Kenny Rogers (of whom I am also a huge fan) was dominating the commercial aspect of country music with songs such as The Gambler and She believes in me, Hank was doing things his way, just as he always has done since he left MGM, with his unique blend of country, rock and blues. Of course, plenty of others have blended these three, including Elvis in the fifties, but Hank's blend is very much his own.
On this album, the my favorite tracks (but not by much) are the title track, Women I've never had and a brilliant duet with Waylon Jennings, The conversation, about Hank's father. There's also a great revival of White lightning, which was written by the Big Bopper but provided George Jones with a top ten American pop hit. Hank's cover is very different from George's but I love them both. Hank also does an excellent cover of Gregg Allman's Come and go blues.
Considering that Hank never did things the Nashville way, it is perhaps surprising that he had as much success as he did - but the quality of his albums, including this one, ensure that he deserved all the success that he had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank at his best 4 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Whiskey Bent and Hellbound is one country's greatest songs and albums though having it cranked when cruising does draw strange looks. Shame how "new" and "young" country stations wouldn't touch real songs like Hanks' with a stick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank Williams, Jr. 31 Jan 2011
By S. O'Brien - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If I could only have one Hank Jr album this would have to be it. Released in 1979, this is 100% pure outlaw country and "Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound" is one of the greatest country songs of alltime in my opinion. There are so many Hank Jr classics on here - "Outlaw Women", "Women I've Never Had", "O.D.'d In Denver" (another killer outlaw country song), "Come and Go Blues", and if that isn't enough you get Hank doing a duet with Waylon Jennings on "The Conversation" to end the album. This is just about as good as country music gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 6 Dec 2000
By "chumbone" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The title track is one of the best country songs ever performed proving the talents of Hank as a true caftsman when it comes to song writing. Fitting that category as well are Outlaw Women, and Women I've Never Had. Hank also lends his southern rockin' style to White Lightnin' written by J.P. Richardson a.k.a. the big bopper. What Bocephus album would be complete without at least one tribute to his father? Hank serves up a whopper here along with Waylon Jennings in a classic called The Conversation. In a time, much like today, when country was straying from it's roots Hank finds a way to keep the southern bluesy traditions alive on all ten cuts of this must have country album.
