A stellar performance by Richard Thomas.
15 March 2002 | by (Laporte, IN 46350) – See all my reviews

Richard Thomas is at his very best. This is a must see for Thomas fans as well as Hank Williams,JR. fans. I had never listened to his music but after Thomas' excellant portrayal of this tormented man I headed straight for the music stores.
