James Hand – The Truth Will Set You Free (2006)

mp3 VBR~197 kbps | 60 MB | OB

James Hand has released another swell album of hardcore, way-back-in-the-day-but-recorded-yesterday honky tonk, this time around produced by Lloyd Maines and Ray Benson. Imagine a vintage Stonewall Jackson or Johnny Horton session that somehow managed to teleport itself into a modern studio. Like the Bennett, The Truth Will Set You Free swings like a mo-fo and is by turns winking and sincere–sometimes not even “by turns.”
