Mostly, though, Junior's subject is sex, and his subtext is the black blues and its oft-forgotten relationship with white country. It's suggested mostly by the excellent music, which makes that bridge between the two seem like just a few steps over the creek. But he states it explicitly on "The Tee Tot Song," the story of Rufus Payne, a black man who taught Junior's daddy to play guitar at a street corner shoeshine stand they worked together.
As for the sex songs, they're funny, and bluesy, too. Best of all is "Big Top Women," an ode to watching well-endowed ladies bounce up and down the courthouse steps. The way ol' Hank inflects "ba-ba-boom" is worth the price of the whole CD--it's pure Hee Haw.
For Hank Williams Jr. to make such an appealing album is surprising enough. For him to make an album that actually makes himself, Hank Williams Jr., seem likable, is a miracle.
