Rediscoveries: The Hinsons, in two parts
The Hinsons reunion at NQC was … meh … just ok. Unlike the Rambos, who didn’t try to imitate the old sound so much as piece together a series of tone-painted scenes from the group’s heyday, the people singing as part of the Hinson tribute seemed to try to sound like The Hinsons. And … well, not so much.
So for no particular reason other than that stumbled upon the other day flitting around youtube, here are two clips from the Hinsons, early and late, about which I have very little to say other than that the Kenny Hinson Deification Project tends to overshadow other Hinson figures, like Larry.
And as for this one: The countrified charisma just rolls off Kenny Hinson is waves of charm and self-possession … I mean, watch how he sells that second verse of Two Winning Hands. My gosh the smile. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had to pass out snacks and cots for the lines of groupies out back of the bus. Two winning hands indeed.Email this Post
