A Hot Rod Ford And A Two-Dollar Bill

Just in case you don't already subscribe to When You Awake (which is a must for fans of country, country-rock, western fashion, and twang of all kinds), head over there now to check out my guest mixtape of ten superb Hank Williams covers.


Here's a bonus track to go with the mix:

The Replacements - Hey Good Lookin' (buy album)

Much as I love Johnny Cash he's not really one of my favourite country artists. However, love his
brilliant rendition of 'I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You' featured here. Other highlights for me in a well crafted, thoughtful mix are Doug Sahm's 'On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain', Steve Young, Waylon and the wonderful George Jones. The Cowboy Junkies 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry' is, of course, sublime. But for all the brilliant Hank covers I've heard over the years Ray Charles 'You Win Again' is probably my favourite. Along with a bizarre affection for the Mekons version of 'Lost Highway'. Probably because it introduced me to the great man.
