  • Another fine vintage live performance,pulled from the vaults of the King Biscuit Flower Hour.I don’t care what anyone says,I still believe that Molly Hatchet became as ‘huge’ as they did at first BECAUSE they filled a void that was left with the demise of Lynyrd Skynyrd.Don’t get me wrong,Hatchet is a good southern rock&roll outfit.I’ve seen them something like at least four times.’Greatest…’ was recorded on February 10,1982 at the Palladium in Los Angles in front of a very appreciative crowd.First thing you might notice about this 12 track disc is that vocalist Danny Joe Brown(R.I.P.)isn’t with them,on this tour.New/short-lasting vocalist/frontman Jimmy Farrar had taken over that chore for the time being.I’d have to say that Farrar is ‘okay’,he appears to give it his all.Tracks here that brought back some nice memories were “Beatin’ The Odds”,”Lady Luck”,the unbeatable “Gator Country”,”Flirtin’ With Disaster” and my personal favorite “Bounty Hunter”.Line-up:Jimmy Farrar-vocals,Dave Hlubek,Steve Holland&Dwayne Roland-guitars(whew!a triple guitar attack there),Banner Thomas-bass and Bruce Crump-drums.Enjoy.
