Wayne Hancock "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs"


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

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The casual listener might hear Wild, Free & Reckless and think that The Complete Hank Williams wasn't complete after all. Then again, when one wears his influences as proudly as Hancock, originality is not necessarily a virtue. Hancock's third album, like its predecessors, was recorded the old-fashioned way--live in the studio--and while the rough-and-ready, distinctly retro guitar-and-steel-guitar sound wouldn't flatter some performers, it's a natural for "Wayne the Train," his nasal twang, and his crack backing band. Thanks to their customarily relentless tour schedule, they are once again razor-sharp. --Anders Smith-Lindall

5.0 out of 5 stars Wayne Hancock is a genius! May 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is a quality to Wayne Hancock's music that is difficult to describe. The restless feel of the southwest, the precision of the music, making it hard to believe that it was recorded live in studio; yet understanding that it was the only way it could sound so perfect. Someday Hancock will be recognized as the genius he is. Wild, Free & Reckless is his best effort, but his first and second were also in a class by themselves. You've got to here Wayne Hancock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staying true to what you believe August 14, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I used to live in Austin and had the pleasure of seeing Wayne and his band many times at a little joint called Jovita's. He did it then and he continues to do it on his third release. For anyone who loves country music or simply can feel the passion someone has for what they do, this disc is a bullseye! Thanks Wayne!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! January 4, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like all of the Hancock CDs I own, I love this one.
Music is much like all the others with the exception being that there are drums on a couple of tracks.
the drums are neither a plus or a minus, as Wayne's music is so rhythmic without them....and this comes from a drummer!

Simple down home lyrics, mostly about "the road", from a voice much like Hank Williams III.
Well played tunes with hot solos by country's finest guitar and steel players.
This CD has a few piano and trombone tunes in addition.
A nice addition, as these are all great players.

I ran sound for his group last summer (2013), and am doing it again in a couple of weeks.
Can't wait,..these guys are just great to work with, and they just sound great right out of the box..

My favorite Wayne CD is still "Ride", as Wayne himself recommended it to me, when I asked him, "which would you recommend for someone new to your music?"
I still haven't got Viper or Tulsa, but they are on my list.
