Yoakam was coming off a platinum debut album with a wiseass title (Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc. Etc.) when he released Hillbilly Deluxe. Neither as hard-nosed nor as bereft as he'd soon be sounding, Deluxe was nonetheless both a smart, stylized missive and the kind of nouveau honky-tonk set that country radio was suddenly ready to eat up. With stuff like "Little Ways," "Please, Please Baby," and "Johnson's Love" on the plate, it tasted great. --Rickey Wright

"Do yourself a favor & get this cd right away!
Some 20 years after it first came out, this has lost none of its' luster.
I played this for a friend of mine from Kentucky when "Hillbilly DeLuxe" first came out. He said then that it was the best Country & Western album he had ever heard. I couldn't agree more.
Amazon.com has been running specials on this cd recently for about $5.
This is money well spent. There isn't a weak entry on any of the 10 songs.
Dwight Yoakam's masterpiece, if you ask me.
His video, "Always Late," from this cd is also a lot of fun to watch, if you ever get the chance to see it.
