The man who brought Bakersfield back.
Label: New West Records

When Dwight Yoakam recorded this sparkling live set for the Austin City Limits television show in 1988, many still viewed his accession to stardom with a certain amount of suspicion. Nashville's obstinately conservative country music establishment thought he was a Californian parvenu, and the alternative sector regarded him as a pretty-boy pin-up packaged by the Music Row Machiavellis. Both were wrong.

The actually Kentucky-born, Ohio-raised, latterly Los Angeles-based Yoakam was no more or less than… read more »

Dwight playing live rocks... He has a style all his own and covers the classics with authenticity that is lost on many other performers.

Country Music at it's very best. Dwight Yoakam has the right stuff, and then some. His music is as unique, and captivating as the man. Dwight was my first country music purchase, after I came of age. He brings out the Hillbilly in us all!!

Unsung hero of real country music

The most famous country singer you've never heard of. Had a spell in the 80's when he was better known but he's still one of the best living country singers around. Heard him in concert in North Platte, NE at Nebraskaland Days back in the 90's. He almost brought the house down, especially with his acustic guitar encore which lasted over an hour. Very talented.

If you have an extensive interest in Country/Western there is nothing new here but a lot of flavor. Give a listen to the fine frosting.

More than this

I have recently downloaded several Live From the Austin City Limits records from E-music. This CD as well as the others I have burned seem to capture the essence and power of the artists. I am a big Dwight Yoakum fan and this is a great addition to my collection. I also recommend Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Richard Thompson, and John Hiatt in this series.

They Say All Music Guide

The man who brought the Bakersfield sound back to the country charts, Dwight Yoakam, was on the road supporting his third album (and one of his best), 1988′s Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room, when he and his band made a stop in Austin, TX, to appear on one of television’s best showcases for quality roots music, PBS’ Austin City Limits. Yoakam was at once a staunch traditionalist and a nervy Young Turk when he played his ACL gig, and both sides shine through in the performance, which has been issued on compact disc as Live from Austin, TX. Yoakam and his band (including guitarist Pete Anderson) burn though these songs with plenty of spark, and demonstrate that the best sort of respect to show this music is to play it with the same swagger and confidence that Buck Owens, Johnny Horton, and Merle Haggard showed back in the day. While Yoakam is still doing that today, there’s something fresh and emphatic here that shines brighter than on some of his later work, and if this disc isn’t as ambitious as the later Dwight Live, on its own modest terms it’s the more satisfying listen. Added value: Buck Owens and Flaco Jimenez stop by to re-create their cameo spots on “Streets of Bakersfield,” with Owens in particularly feisty form. – Mark Deming
