The Next Hundred Years

The Next Hundred Years

Ted Hawkins spent years as a street singer, his brushes with a bigger career frequently thwarted by his tendency to get into trouble. But after years of missed opportunities, he finally had a chance to make a fully produced major-label album. Not only is 1994's The Next Hundred Years the definitive document of Hawkins' haunting rasp and nakedly emotional soul-folk tunes; it's one of the most affecting albums of its era. Hawkins digs deep inside to sing about the trials of love ("Strange Conversation," "The Good and the Bad") and damn near steals "There Stands the Glass" and "Biloxi" away from Webb Pierce and Jesse Winchester, respectively.
