Historically this is a very important album as Hank Williams JR. stands between two dynasties 

No one has ever had the stage magnetism or charisma of Hank Williams SR. and Johnny Cash. Probably no other singer's records have had the impact on country music that has been evidenced in the recordings of Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. 

Actually they knew each other as Hank passed away before anyone ever heard of Cash boy from Arkansas. Hank Jr. and Johnny are good friends and share many interest. Hank Sr. was certainly an influence on Johnny and John has been an inspiration to Hank Jr. who, at this writing, has just turned twenty one.

Recently  Johnny related to me that he is going to make a movie with Kirk Douglas in which he will play the role of a gunfighter. I asked if he knew the art of  "fast draw" and he said that several years ago he had learned from Hank Jr. who always outdraw him. They share a passion for rare guns and both Civil War History "Buffs" John mentioned that he traded Hank Jr. a rare gun for a guitar one time.

I know you'll like the way that Hank Jr. handles "Folsom Prison Blues" in picicular  and the other big Cash favorites that seem to be very much suited to this talented young man who was only three when his famous father passed away and who to Hank Sr. was known as little Bocephus. 

On final about guns. I asked hank Jr. if he remembered anything  about his father and he said "not much" then later while showing me his gun collection he pointed out the most prized guns in the group. they had belonged to Hank Williams Sr. and "little Bo" spoke of them with the kind of pride that born of love, pride in the fact that Hank Sr. had been his dad. 

Hank Williams Jr. has made a lot of records but as you listen you will note that this is special and surly was a labor of love. The Results are Great   Ralph Emery
