There's a Little Bit of Hank in Me/Burgers and Fries/When I Stop Leaving (I'll Be Gone)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
This 2013 two-fer combines the 1980 Hank Williams tribute There's a Little Bit of Hank in Me and the 1978 LP Burgers & Fries/When I Stop Leaving (I'll Be Gone). These were his last two Top 10 Country Albums, with Hank peaking at number one and Burgers & Fries reaching seven, which is what makes them a good pairing even if they don't quite follow each other chronologically.

There are electric pianos, strings, and endless vocal harmonies, all adding up to a sweet, gossamer surface that suits the ballads and pop tunes that comprise this eminently likeable LP. Apart from the two hit songs in the album's title, there are no knock-outs here, but it's all strong stuff, and Pride wears the fashions of the time quite appealingly.
