When it comes to down ’n’ dirty roots ’n’ roll, nobody in the
wide world of Americana music today does it better than
Ray Wylie Hubbard.
From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ’60s to his wild ride
through the ’70s progressive country movement, and onward through the
honky-tonk fog of the ’80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriter’s
songwriter in the ’90s, Hubbard was already a bonafide legend by the
time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century. Beginning with
2001’s aptly-titled Eternal and Lowdown through to his latest and greatest
release, 2015’s The Ruffian’s Misfortune, he has spent well over a decade
now chasing hellhounds through muddy waters and deep into the underbelly
of the blues, with a Lightnin’ Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stones
swagger in his step

Just what one would expect from RWH: gritty guitar licks, clever lyrics, and a blues/folk/rock feel that few can replicate. If you liked "Growl," you'll love "Snake Farm."

"Snake Farm" is another brilliant collaboration between RWH and Gurf Morlix, producing more of that same dirty country/blues sound we've come to know and love from their previous efforts. "Snake Farm" is even grittier and edgier than "Growl" (if such a thing is possible!) and the lyrics (with their abundant subtexts) will get you thinking and keep you coming back for more again and again. (BTW Pete apparently believes that "Lone Star Music" means that you can't give a CD more than one star. For the record, I preordered my copy well in advance and received it on 6/26, so there's no way he heard anything other than clips by the date of his "review")

It's amazing that "Pete" was able to write a review of a CD that's not even out yet. He's an example of what I was talking about in an earlier review

Not one melodic song. No variation, all songs sound the same. Terrible.

Incredible! I saw Ray Wylie Hubbard live at Larry Joe Taylor's in 2004 and he made me want to be a groupie. Hahaha, love his stuff!

It's totally amazing maybe the best singer/songwriter in Texas has only 24 reviews. Most Texas music fans wouldn't know good music if it bit them on the ass!

I have heard several cuts (Snake Farm, Polecat, Rabbit) from the upcoming "Snake Farm" album live @ different venues. These songs get the crowd moving. Ray is continually in touch with what makes roots music what it is. Life and what you do with your piece is important and do not take the unimportant seriously.

I discovered RWH on pirate radio out of Florence AZ.,the song was Choctaw Bingo. To say the least, I was floored! He has made this tune by James McMurtry his own! In today's music scene it's good to hear someone who doesn't follow a trend and stays true to the music they love.
