Product Description

THE TEXAS HONKY TONK BLUES is western swing, traditional country and Texas shuffle featuring twin fiddles with steel guitar and top notch vocal. THE TEXAS HONKY TONK BLUES is a somewhat autobiographical story-in-songs of a man whose career stretches back to the early 1950's, the golden era of country music. The songs were recorded in Nashville, Tennessee resulting in a fusion of even handed honky tonk and western swing that Durwood learned as a boy in the Lone Star State. Each performance is the real thing, not rock music that calls itself country and ain't.

Review

Durwood Haddock is co-author of the honky tonk classic THERE SHE GOES, his version of which is included among the 10 songs here. He's got a fine baritone voice, and the production on these cuts (some of which were originally intended for song pitching) is exactly what you'd want to hear. So it's surprising that this is Haddock's first album! Apparently he had some singles along the way, in a career which started in the 50's, and of course his songs were cut by others. Big Night At My House is listed as a 1962 hit. Haddock wrote 7 of these tunes, with Just Call Me Lonesome the most familiar cover. With honky tonk music coming back so strong just lately (among the alternative country set I mean, some of us never got away from it) it would seem like this is a natural. The tunes are somewhat more on the sentimental side of honky-tonk than the hard edged side, with the typical theme being a description of what folks are there for: drinkin', dancin' and lovin'. -- BLUE SUEDE NEWS/#34 SPRING

There may be no guarantees in life, but this might be as close as you're going to get. These songs with just the right mixure of country, swing and gentle gusto will keep you a clappin'n' a tappin' from beginning to end...guaranteed! --
