    I have the CD. It's a pretty solid recording. Dwight is still the real deal Country.

    Damn, I love Dwight Yoakam. Ever since I heard "Thousand Miles From Nowhere" as a young teen I knew he was something special... and I was neck deep into 80's hair metal and 90's grunge-adjacent music then.

    Yep he's the musical offspring of Buck Owens.

    Dwight is one of the all-time greats in my book. The agility and precision of his singing, the quality of his writing, his obvious love for great musicians, his respect for traditions and his adventurousness with arrangements, it's all there.

    To me, this is a perfect country shuffle:



    All day long.

    Saw him in concert about 20 years ago. He puts on a legit show. They were tight. I don't like all country music, but I dig Dwight.

    Dwight’s always been a favorite of mine. I heard this one on the local indie station a few months back, and I had to stop what I was doing and listen to the whole thing. Glad to know he can still put out excellent stuff even without Pete Anderson.

    Always enjoyed Dwight. Though he didn't play it the lead in 'Blame the Vain' is an all time favorite for me.


    It's played by maybe Keith Gattis?? and starts about 1:55.

    Dwight, man.
    Who touches him for post 60s Bakersfield sound-infused honkytonk?
    No one.

    I got an old Vinyl from him for more than 30 years - do not even remember the title. I wonder if I played more than one or two times... :oops:
