Leave it to Robbie Fulks to unearth 13 mostly obscure masterworks by 13 mostly out-of-print country artists, update them with 13 bang-up recordings, and then boldly package the whole thing as 13 HILLBILLY GIANTS. Few artists have made tribute albums that so brazenly display their erudition while so clearly demonstrating their mastery of a genre.
Fulks' ebullient covers of Frankie Miller's "Family Man" and Jimmy Murphy's "We Live a Long Time to Get Old" will undoubtedly send country enthusiasts on long (and probably fruitless) searches for the original recordings. Likewise, fans of country oddities will be transfixed by Fulks's demented takes on Jimmie Lodgson's "I Want to Be Mama'd" and the Carlisles' "Knot Hole". 13 HILLBILLY GIANTS returns to a time when hard drinking ("Cocktails", "Bury the Bottle With Me"), cheating ("Act Like a Married Man", "Lotta Lotta Women"), and unsettling morbidity ("Jeannie's Afraid of the Dark") were all fit subjects for a country song. A powerful antidote to the Garth Brookses and Faith Hills of the world.
