This project began as a way to get Hank III "on record" by pairing him with his father, Hank Jr. and his long-dead granddad, Hank Sr. Cute idea, and would not have meant much except that Hank III is a budding artist of exceptional promise, and Hank Jr. still has what it takes, and Hank Sr. is well, Hank Sr., and his songs are still great no matter who does what to them, and the producer, Chuck Howard, must be a genius. This album is so much fun to hear, and holds up well after repeated exposure. Wisely, the younger Hanks left Senior's greatest songs alone...they don't take a stab at "You Win Again" or "Cold Cold Heart" or "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." They instead select "I Won't Be Home No More" and nail it in the best version I've ever heard. They also perform "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" and "Men With Broken Hearts", "Lost Highway" and "Never Again Will I Knock on Your Door" in killer renditions. Hank Jr. sings "Hand Me Down", a poignant song of his own about a note his father left him that he didn't discover until he was grown. Even if the song is not literally true, it is wonderfully done. This turned out to be a nice mixture of moods and tempos, and the voices of the three Hanks are just different enough.
