Hancock may not be the second coming of Hank, as reviews of his first few albums would have you believe, but he blows the dust off a great and ailing American art form.

Hancock is most often compared to Hank Williams, and he can indeed be a hardcore honky tonker, but there's more to him than that: he also displays a genuine affinity for stomping rockabilly, Western swing, blues, and old-timey country à la Jimmie Rodgers.
