Biography

Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Dwight Yoakam. Perhaps that is because so few have consistently and repeatedly met the high standard of excellence delivered by the Kentucky native no matter what his endeavor. His name immediately conjures up compelling, provocative images: A pale cowboy hat with the brim pulled low; poured-on blue jeans; intricate, catchy melodies paired ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Both the introduction to hard country for an entire generation and a key entry in what became the neo-traditional movement, Dwight Yoakam's debut, Guitars Cadillacs Etc. Etc, was a near-perfect recreation of Buck Owens's Bakersfield sound. "Bury Me" and "Miner's Prayer" are heartfelt homages to Yoakam's real Kentucky roots, while honky-tonks like "South of Cincinnati" remind how many Kentuckians headed to Ohio for good jobs. Most immediately striking, though, are Yoakam's covers--particularly versions of Johnny Horton's "Honky Tonk Man" and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire"--which subtly tune up the Bakersfield sound with a rock & roll super-charge. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat! 1 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the very 1st Dwight album I bought many moons ago and I loved it from the word go! I had only heard of him vaguely and bought this 'on spec' but it still gets played even now! Have bought every album since and been to see him live too! Typical 'Bakersfield' sound~if that's your style he's the man! A couple of covers of 'classic' country songs and he appeals to all. I would certainly advocate a listen to this album as an introduction to the great man~you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dwights debut album and what a great one 24 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
I had bought this album first on vinyl, then as a CD, yes I know the arguments, but had always liked it. Then for some reason racked it away. Today, I found it again, played it, and it was joy all over. What a debut, energy, great arrangements, original writing, and all the while a throbbing twang, the real best of Bakersfield.
It is hard to believe that it was recorded quite a few years back, in the 1980s in fact.
Listen to Miners Prayer, it could be a 100 years old, definitely Monroe/Stanleys country, and then Heartaches By the Number, so young so confident.
Pete Anderson is sorting out the arrangements, and the musicians, contributing to the overall sound with guitar and harmonies and in a sense he is Dwights' Don Rich.
A classic, so glad I found it again, now you find it and enjoy.
