5.0 out of 5 stars a Dwight delight, 27 Oct 2002
This review is from: Hillbilly Deluxe (Audio CD)
Singer, songwriter, actor, Yoakam is a huge talent, and shines on every track of this CD.
The musicianship throughout is stupendous. The "Babylonian Cowboys" consist of Pete Anderson (who also produced this CD) on electric guitar and 6 string bass, J.D. Foster: Electric bass, Jeff Donovan: Drums, Brantley Kearns: Fiddle...and how I love that fiddle !
Yoakam wrote 7 of the 10 tracks, and all of them are winners, as are the other three: The Alan Rose/Don Helms "Smoke Along the Track" is wonderful, as is the Lefty Frizzell/Blackie Crawford "Always Late with Your Kisses", as well as the early 60's Elvis Presley hit "Little Sister" by Doc Pomus/Mort Schuman.
There are only 2 ballads on the CD...Dwight's "Johnson's Love" and "1000 Miles", both of them touching and well told stories of love gone wrong.
Even with these two slower songs, it's a great dance CD, as well as a housekeeper's aid. Your dusting will be a breeze with this as your soundtrack.
The small booklet insert includes lyrics, but not much else, and the total time is an all too short 34'17.
This is a tight, razzle-dazzle recording, and if you like Dwight, and his very special brand of rock-a-billy, it'll be a terrific addition to your collection.
