Album Review

Ray Wylie Hubbard's greatest gift is as a songwriter, but writing great songs doesn't mean much if no one hears them, and Hubbard is fortunate that he can communicate his work to an audience with warmth, immediacy, and an accomplished actor's sense of drama. In 1998, Hubbard and a handful of friends — including ace guitarists Lloyd Maines and Stephen Bruton — played an intimate, semi-acoustic gig at San Antonio's now defunct Cibolo Creek Country Club, and fortunately someone had the presence of mind to bring a mobile recording rig to the show. Live at Cibolo Creek Country Club captures Hubbard and his musicians performing a handful of his best songs on a night when he was in especially good form, and this disc also proves he's as good a storyteller as a tunesmith (his shaggy dog tale of angry goats, grumpy farmers, and bitter Swedish rock critics that leads up to "Last Train to Amsterdam" is worth the price of admission by itself). Hubbard's vocals strike a fine balance between roadhouse smoke and poetic clarity, and his little band proves its mettle without getting in the way. The long version of "Wanna Rock and Roll" cooks harder than you might expect given the circumstances, and while Hubbard may protest a bit about closing the show with "Redneck Mother," you know he'd do it again if you asked him politely. Live at Cibolo Creek Country Club offers proof that Ray Wylie Hubbard can perform his songs as well as he can write 'em — and given how good those songs are, that's saying a lot.

Customer Reviews

The proof is in the live recordings.

I'm not unbiased, RWH is one of my favorite artists (I'm 68 years old and remember the birth of rock'n'roll and popular country-Hank Williams, Patsy Cline).
This cd grabs you by the ears and makes you listen and respond to all the great songs. The band is amazing; Lloyd Manes, Stephen Bruton, et all.
His song "Wanna Rock and Roll" , although excellant on the original cd, transends almost anything I can think of as a story.
Buy this, or any of his work, you won't regret it.
