Editorial Reviews

Loco Gringo's Lament turned out to be Ray Wylie Hubbard's "comeback" album, and was released to massive critical acclaim. It won several awards, including the Kerriville Independent Album of the Year. This time out, Ray came armed with songs so strong, they're nothing short of jawdropping, and he put them, and himself, into the extremely capable hands of Lloyd Maines' production talents. Ray pours every ounce of his heart and soul into his tales of the dusty west, love, lost souls, redemption, and salvation, the melodies ranging from quiet comtemplation to hard edged, driving revenge, mixing his potent"brand of"country, with touches of blues and rock.Songs Include: Dust of The Chase, Just to Hold You, Love Never Dies, Little Angel Comes A Walkin', After The Fall, Wanna Rock and Roll, I've Seen That Old Highway, Didn't Have a Prayer, Bless The Hearts of The Lonely, Loco Gringo's Lament, Real Trick, Messenger

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Texas Music April 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ray Wylie Hubbard has been both blessed and cursed by the same song. That is that if people outside of his cult following have heard of him at all, its because of Jerry Jeff Walker's famous rendition of Hubbard's Up Against The Wall, Redneck Mother. He's been blessed because that bought him a name recognition thousands of dollars in advertising couldn't. Its been a curse because many people are unaware that he's done anything else worthwhile.

I've been a sometimey fan of Hubbard over the years and bought Loco Gringo's Lament on cassette back when it was issued. As cassettes often do, mine wore out so I waited for years until it was finally reissued on CD. The songs here are fairly strong overall, mostly in the peculiarly Texas style of country rock. But one song stands out as one of the best Hubbard has written and that is the dark, murderous Dust of the Chase. Its arresting lyrics and ominous guitar work combine to make it one chilling song and that by itself is enough to give the CD a five-star rating.

If you are a fan of Texas music, then Loco Gringo's Lament is one of the essentials. Now that it is once again available, there's no good reason not to add it to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ray Wylie delivers April 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Ray Wylie Hubbard is the Warren Zevon of Texas Outlaw Country Music. He writes literate, clever songs that stay with you long after each listen. If you are a fan of 2012's Grifter's Lament then you will enjoy this release as well.

Ray Wiley Hubbard has a new fan here. I found much of the music to be "poetic" and have listened to it over and over. Definitely a great sound.
