This set combines three of Dwight Yoakam
's classic late-'80s albums, Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.
, 1987’s Hillbilly Deluxe
, and 1989’s Just Lookin’ for a Hit
, into a single package. Since Just Lookin’ for a Hit
was in itself a sort of greatest-hits collection, one gets duplicate versions of several songs here, including “Honky Tonk Man,” “Guitars, Cadillacs,” “Little Ways,” and “Little Sister,” which is a minor irritation, but the tracks on these albums form the heart and soul of Yoakam
's impressive and refreshing brand of new country traditionalism, making this a nice starter kit to a one-of-a-kind artist.
