Rhythms Magazine.. Review April 2014 for “Hankering”
NSW North Coast local Slim Pickens has kept himself busy in recent times, particularly now that he’s set up his own home recording studio. Here he indulges his love for Hank Williams with a tribute album to country music’s greatest singer-songwriter that coruscates with both personality and reverence. Though Pickens is capable of handling most instrumentation himself, he assembled a fantastic band to back him, with regular cohort Dr Baz on accordion, Neil McCann on drums and Dougie Bull on bass. The venerable Ray Cullen adds sweet old-school pedal steel and special guests include Gleny Rae on fiddle and Warren Earl, who plays some very tasty electric guitar.
Slim’s vocal approach is way more laid back than Williams’ and that’s perhaps what gives this album its unique character. His version of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, for example sounds like it was recorded on morphine (that’s meant as a compliment).
The band is more than capable of getting perky on songs like “Fly Trouble” (great guitar solo) and “Move It On Over”. I’d prefer to listen to this homemade, heartfelt tribute to Hank over any star-studded big studio production any day.
