Despite his predilection for hostile punk metal with his band Assjack, (and beyond this reviewer's comprehension), Hank Williams III is also an accomplished country musician as this Curb collection of outtakes, tracks culled from other Hank albums and a duet with Joey Allcorn (the marvellous "This Ain't Montgomery" about grandaddy Hank) written by Allcorn and taken from a solo album of his own demonstrates.

Not only does Hank III have an uncanny resemblance to his grandfather he sounds like him too. The title track is pure Hank Senior and, propelled by fiddle and steel guitar, Hank III resurrects his sound complete with a blue yodel at the end.

This may be Curb Records cashing in on Hank after a stormy relationship but there are some great performances of some great songs here including Merle Haggard's "The Bottle let me Down", "Good Hearted Woman" by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings and "Wreck Of The Old '97, by Johnny Cash.

My only reservation is the so called shuffle mix of "If The Shoe Fits" and I'm not sure if this is Mike Curb having a joke that has misfired.

That aside, for aficionados of Hank Williams III this disparate selection from his 14 years with Curb demonstrates just how good a honky tonker he can be. If normal rules applied this album shouldn't work but Hank is country royalty, and it does!

Don't be fooled by my title, its a great album but not Hanks best, mainly as its covers. Still great Country music.
