The Definitive Box Set continues to elude Bocephus

"All griping aside, this is definitely a good listen. Bocephus (Hank Williams Jr. to the uninitiated) is one of the best and most influential country artists to ever grace America - and a Conservative, to boot.
That aside, this set gets 4 stars because the music is good. It's what they don't include that draws it down. His killer version of "I Fought The Law" and some of the funnier songs from his recent "Stormy" album (i.e., "Hank Hill Is The King") are excluded in favor of nine (nine!) live songs, seven of which weren't on Hank's 1987 souvenir "Hank Live." Some of these live songs are pretty difficult to listen to (the worst of the lot being "House of the Rising Sun").
This is really a shame, as almost all of the rest of the set is exemplary. Don't listen to any other reviewer's complaints about this set not being complete - almost all of his work before 1979 was tributary tripe, anyway. On the upside, this is much better than the box set "The Complete Hank Williams Jr." This is definitely the way to go for Bocephus' entire career . . . so far."
Buy the old stuff

"Hanke Williams Jr has recorded some great stuff--New South, Family Tradition, Whiskey Bent & Hell Bound--that you can pick up for $6 bucks a cd. The box set and the complete Hank Williams jr set (for [item price] for the two of them!) have just way too much filler. Do you really want "This ain't Dallas" or the theme to Monday Night football. By all means, spend your money on Hank, but spend it wisely."
