Hillbilly Deluxe proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Dwight Yoakam's Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. was no fluke. There's no sophomore slump here, and while Hillbilly Deluxe may be seen as an extension of his debut, repetition 'taint necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it can be heard and viewed as Yokam and producer/guitarist Pete Anderson cementing the commitment to Bakersfield-styled honky tonk music. Yoakam's voice is a dead cross of Merle Haggard's early voice and Lefty Frizzell's -- a fine cover of the latter's "Always Late (With Your Kisses)" is included here -- and as such, it is one of the purest, most soulful voices in the music of this era.
