Whether or not you subscribe to the adage that the devil always has the best music, you can take it on faith that anytime he pops up for a cameo in a Ray Wylie Hubbard song, the results are gonna be pretty entertaining. And as any fan of the Hubbard cannon knows, Old Scratch pops up in his songs a lot – nearly as often as all of Hubbard’s wise-cracking black birds, lyrical and musical nods to Lightnin’ Hopkins, badass women (usually Hubbard’s own wife, Judy), and myriad other grifters, ruffians, and scrappy cats of the gnarly and general lowdown variety. Somewhere or other on just about every Ray Wylie Hubbard album, the devil always gets his due – and he’s now even worked his way up to top billing on the acclaimed songwriter’s latest, Tell the Devil I’m Getting There as Fast as I Can.
“That may be RWH’s greatest gift. Whatever is dealt him, he scrapes the roots, boils the marrow and gives up songs that rabbit punch with delicious truth. Like Keith Richards, an outlaw who doesn’t need the tag, Hubbard’s reality is the rogue’s romance completely inhabited.” – Paste Magazine
