In an era of miserable "country" music, Wayne is the real deal. His music is comforting when you're sad, and a laugh when you're feeling happy. His tales of trains, lost women, long highways, and lost possibilities are the soundtrack to America. Precious few are out there providing true country (i.e. American) music, and Wayne is one of them. Along with fellow Austinite Don Walser, Wayne is simply one of very, very best musicians out there today. His pedal guitar, electric guitar, and slapping bass are infused with life in all its wonders. Catch him in your town soon and buy him a drink. Until then, collect his latest and greatest album, all the old ones, and keep your eyes peeled for Johnny Law.

Format: Audio CD
Being by one of my preferred performers, I believe this is Wayne Hancock's best recording, thus making "A-Town Blues" one of my all-time favorites. For me, this album has been the soundtrack to an endless number of backroad desert adventures. I can no longer travel into the land of cacti, agaves, yuccas and sage without playing "A-Town Blues." Song choice is what distinguishes this recording from Hancock's others. It is ballad heaven. The album sounds like a greatest hits. 'Happy Birthday Julie' is perhaps my favorite song by Hanock, but other gems include 'California Blues,' 'Miller, Jack and Mad Dog,' 'Viper,' 'We Three,' 'Man of the Road,' and darn it!!! I fell in the same trap as so many reviewers before myself; when picking the best songs, I listed most of the tunes on the album! Suffice to write that the heartfelt ballads, the earthy singing, the juke-joint bass, the less-than-none steel guitar makes this one of my all-time favorite recordings and it can be yours too!

I first saw Wayne Hancock on Austin City Limits and kept meaning to buy one of his albums. I finally bought "Thinderstorms and Neon Signs" and was somewhat impressed. However, "A-Town Blues" is awesome! The steel guitar in this album is fantastic and I cannot get enough of "Califronia Blues" and "Track 49". I crank the volume way up on the instrumentals and really [make]my wife [mad]. If you like a pedal steel guitar and good hillbilly/country, this is the album for you. Wayne has chosen a different course on this alnum than Hank III and I'm thankful for it, as he's gone back to country and done a fine job doing it! I'm really looking forward to the next album and hope he tours into Arizona some time soon.

Format: Audio CD
Wayne the Train continues his association with renowned producer/steel player Lloyd Maines, and the music world is the better for it. Wayne swings, jumps, rocks (yes!), yodels, and croons, and makes it sound effortless. Like his other records, this one was recorded live in the studio, and one can appreciate not only the energy this brings but also the pure musicianship of Hancock and his band. There isn't a weak track on this record. An added treat is the final track, "Railroad Blues," a seemingly last-minute addition-an acoustic duet of Hancock and Maines. Wayne's voice is rougher than usual, perhaps because this was recorded at the end of a long (by Hancock standards) studio session. A perfect way to close a damn-near perfect set of swinging Texas music.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jerome Clark on November 17, 2001
Format: Audio CD
A CD focused largely on a musician's life on the road doesn't strike me as a particularly inspired idea. Wayne Hancock, however, manages to pull it off, through a combination of sheer likability, capable songwriting, and a few songs on other subjects. The last category includes "Sands of Time," which sounds not just like a tune Hank Williams could have written but like one he's actually singing. It's surely one of the most dead-on, scary Hank imitations of all time. With an approach that derives both strength and weakness from its affinity to Hank, Hancock's is a musical sensibility stuck in 1951, when people still talked about "hot rods" (as in "Miller, Jack & Mad Dog," a commentary on the hazards of drunk driving circa, I take it, five decades ago). I'm not complaining, mind you. Hancock is comfortable and convincing, and if you like your honkytonk and Western swing plain and straight -- and I certainly do -- here it is.

This is Hancock's best work since his debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs, and has that album's sound and feel. He has gone back to a pared-down band -- thankfully dumping the drums, which he introduced on the last two CDs. Compared to Thunderstorms, those two albums were a bit of a disapointment. Don't get me wrong, there are some real gems on both albums, but they are not as consistently solid as Thunderstorms. With A-Town Blues, the old Train is back and better then ever.

Wayne Hancock is a treasure. In a world of homogenised 'radio friendly' pop country, here is a man who turns his nose up at that rubbish and plays music the way it used to be back in the early 1950's. He's not just a boring copy of Hank Williams or Ernest Tubb though - he simply draws inspiration from the ol' honkytonkers, together with rockabilly, blues, & jazz influences - and puts out music that is retro but completely relevant. Recorded live in the studio, with his brilliant band in top form, and Wayne's usual infectious enthusiasm coming through loud & clear, "A Town Blues" continues on from his previous records with the unique blend of 'tonk & blues he calls 'juke joint swing'.
Standout tracks for me are: "A Town Blues", "Man Of The Road", "Sands Of Time", "Miller Jack & Mad Dog", "Track 49", "Life's Lonesome Road", "Cow Cow Boogie", "California Blues" and "Railroad Blues".
Do yourself a favour - buy "A Town Blues" and see Wayne Hancock live as soon as possible.
