When Hank Williams Jr. was 8, his mother dressed him in little cowboy suits, taught him all the words to his daddy’s songs, and pushed him out on stage. By the time he was 17, he was writing Hank Sr. tributes that scarcely hid his overwhelming resentment. This three-disc collection of early work, recorded between the ages of 14 and 26, traces his evolution from a Hank Sr. impersonator to a budding Southern rocker. By the time he accidentally fell headfirst off a Montana mountain in 1975, he had already pumped up his Nashville sound with Southern rock and written ”Stoned at the Jukebox,” Living Proof: The MGM Recordings 1963-1975’s finest moment and a honky-tonk lament so morose Hank Sr. might have claimed it as his own.
