The Texas bard with a band
Roger Jönsson | Lund, Sweden | 09/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hancock is often heard in minimal, acoustic settings ("West Texas Waltzes", "I Coulda Walked Around The World"). This is probably mostly due to the fact that he can't afford to tour and record with a band. However, he did so on some of his earlier records like this, the third one. Steel guitar, fiddle and even a brass section makes these songs come alive. This is the closest he's ever come to sounding like your typical honky tonk country artist. The songs are also more focused than usual and my favourites are "Some Folks Call It Style", "Her Lover Of The Hour", "Golden Hearted Ways" and "Corona Del Mar", which adds a nice mexican flavour. Highly recommended, especially if you find his purely acoustic stuff a bit hard to swallow."
