Molly Hatchet's long and illustrious career has many times taken the band down a highway late at night, going from town to town unflinchingly rocking many to their foundations. It's easy to imagine the bandmembers reveling in all-night partying and playing some steely-eyed, good-time simple rock & roll with every ounce of sweat and soul in their bodies. Then right before the run rises, they have to pack up and get ready to do it all over again the next night in some other lonely town in another lonely place. It's the story of many an American band, and no one tells it better than Molly Hatchet. Showing relentless pride for its roots, Molly Hatchet unabashedly tells the story of the South and rocks harder than most of its contemporaries, and this essential release covers all of the bases from the band's decades of rocking without mercy. Hatchet fans need not look any further than to put this collection on their shelves. It's the audio diary of a band whose legacy is finally due.
