5.0 out of 5 stars THE ORIGINAL OKLAHOMA COUNTRY OULAW March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
From the moment I heard those first words " I come from Oklahoma with a pistol in my boot, a pair of dice, a deck of cards, and a bible in my suit", I knew I was hooked big time on this fantastic country album. This record marked Ray Wylie Hubbard's comeback in 1994. And it's pretty obvious he had a lot of great songs saved up from those many years spent on the road. For me, Hubbard is the ultimate storyteller, and the most underappreciated and overlooked of all the country songwriters. He is the original country rebel outlaw from Soper, Oklahoma. Hubbard is probably most famous for writing the country cult classic "UP AGAINST THE WALL REDNECK MOTHER" for fellow country outlaw Jerry Jeff Walker. This song temporialy made Hubbard a name in Nashville. But he thumbed his nose at Nashville and formed the original alternative country rock band RAY HUBBARD AND THE COWBOY TWINKIES. On any night you could find these guys playing a Merle Haggard song one minute, and turn around and do a Led Zepplin song the next. Sounds like my kind of band. But not exactly Grand Ole Opry material. After all these years of struggling with obscurity, it brings us to "Loco Gringo's Lament". For me, every song on here is a hook laden classic. There are no duds here. If your not careful, you'll catch yourself humming or singing these tunes long after the music's over. Some of my favorites among the favorites on here are "AFTER THE FALL", which has a simple, yet catchy guitar rhythm to it that I'm sure some aspiring songwriters out there are kicking themselves for not thinking of first. I promise you'll press the repeat button on this one. Hubbard shows that he still has some of that rebel rock left in him with "LITTLE ANGEL COMES A WALKIN'" and "WANNA ROCK AND ROLL". Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Loco Gringos Review April 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I find it hard to believe that no one has reviewed this CD yet! C'mon people, this is RAY WYLIE HUBBARD! Well, I guess it's up to me, so, BUY THIS ALBUM! In my humble opinion Loco Gringos Lament is to Ray Wylies catalog what WHO'S NEXT is to The WHO, what ABBEY ROAD is to The BEATLES, what RED HEADED STRANGER is to WILLIE, what...oh heck, you get the picture! If you are a Ray Wylie Hubbard fan, and I assume that you must be since you're reading this, all I can tell you is all the words in the world can't convince you how good this album is as much as what one listen to it will do! This album is ESSENTIAL to any to the collection of any true true lover of country/folk/rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ray Wylie's Coming Back Strong October 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Loco Gringo's Lament is a CD I have had for a couple of years now. It is truly among the very best I own. I almost never take a long road trip with out bringing it with me. Ray Wylie Hubbard may be best known for up Against the Wall Redneck Mother, but with Loco Gringo's Lament you have great driving music and very thoughtful and profound lyrics. While all the selections are good my favorites are Dust of the Chase, After the Fall, Wanna Rock & Roll, The Real Trick and the Messenger. I don't think you will be disappointed. You may also want to grab its sequel Dangerous Spirits another excellent release from Ray Wylie Hubbard.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one ray wylie cd you need January 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ray Wylie remains one of Texas's best kept secrets. Dust of the Chase and the title song, Loco Gringo's Lament are the best cuts on the CD. The whole album is well written and the songs are thought provoking (as much of Ray Wylies' material is.) Overall this CD made my top 13 of all time list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find the ... bucks and BUY THIS!!! This is what we... November 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
...used to call a "desert island disc". Ray opens his spirit and his life in this epic journey of thought through your own soul. This is going to be the best CD you will ever buy.
After you learn these songs...go see Ray...go meet Ray...he is great to see.
