Wayne Hancock "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs"

Biography

Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne “The Train” Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing--that alchemist’s dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: ... Read more in Amazon's Wayne Hancock Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

Wayne "The Train" keeps a-rollin' as the Austin honky-tonk hero struts his stuff in live sessions on his home turf, energizing the dancers and putting a smile on the face of anyone who prefers country music with an old-fashioned kick. The ex-Marine is a hard-core country traditionalist, but his devotion to swing--Western and otherwise--gives his honky-tonk fluidity. Swing Time, produced by Texan Lloyd Maines, makes excellent use of crack guitarists Paul Skelton and Dave Biller, who deftly combine vintage licks with contemporary energy. Steel guitarist Eddie Rivers is equally effective, especially on songs like "Louisiana Blues," "Flatland Boogie," and "Big City Good Time Gal." Still it's Watson's no-nonsense vocals and 21st-century Hank Williams persona that makes the music click. Hancock reprises several songs from previous recordings, adding a quick trip down "Route 66" and an intriguing take on the standard "Summertime." --Michael Point

Format: Audio CD
A great live set recorded down in Austin by hard-country hero Wayne The Train Hancock and his band, featuring Dave Biller on guitar, a bit of trombone tootling by Bob "Texaco" Stafford, and solid, lively backing by all the others. From the album title, I had expected Hancock to indulge his interest in jazz-standards and swing, but I ain't complaining that this is a strait-up country album instead -- not by a longshot! Really, it's amazing to hear anyone playing such as rough and rowdy, yet accomplished and historically aware kinda country these days, and this disc captures the energy and charm of Hancock's live shows pretty well. High points include his new version of "Thunderstorms And Neon Signs," which may actually outdo the original -- overall, another top-notch release! Highly recommended.

I recently disovered the wonders of Accuradio and, in particular, the station TWANG. It is awesome. There are a few CD's that are in heavy rotation other than Johnny Cash or Willie Nelson. This is one of them, and for good reason. It sounds new and old, and Wayne's voice does have an uncanny resemblance to a certain Hank Williams. The music has this quality that you rarely hear of being familiar and completely unique at the same time. Hat's off to the band for making it sound oh so easy. It's toe tapping heaven.

If you are a fan of real country style music and yearn to hear great guitar backup and superb steel guitar played with genuine emotion and finesse, this is the album for you. If you do not have any other of Wayne Hancock's discs, get this one. Although it is a "compilation" album, it was recorded LIVE,at the Continetal in Austin, TX. The musicianship is outstanding as well as Wayne's genuine, in your face, delivery. This is raw Texas style country with no apologies. The LIVE setting really shows how good Wayne and his band are. It is the real deal and should be required listening for any country band members as an example as to "how it should be done".

I know it's supposed to be hidden but most Mp3 versions of this album list the last track as "Summertime". Unless someone afters me confirms that his version includes this track as well buy it from iTunes or some place else. It's one of the best tracks on an absolutely amazing album and you're selling yourself short if you skip it.

EDIT:

They removed the ability to listen to this from Rdio and I had a credit to the MP3 store so I went ahead and bought it. Summertime is indeed not included :( If it were there I'd give five stars. Still a great album.
