RETURN TO HICKSVILLE is an anthology celebrating Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks's slim but invitingly winning Blue Thumb releases. They had signed with Blue Thumb after their overlooked 1969 debut, their first label appearance being 1971's live WHERE'S THE MONEY? They released new studio recordings, STRIKING IT RICH and LAST TRAIN TO HICKSVILLE in each of the two successive years. By the time of the latter they knew they were disbanding, hence the title's farewell reference.
The band's mix of Tin Pan Alley, vaudeville, cabaret, Western swing, jazz, and loopy pop was the perfect counterpoint to the era's psychedelic overindulgence. Hicks wrote a small but fine collection of songs during this period, many of which were to remain an integral part of his repertoire for decades thereafter. The Hot Licks were a well-balanced and sympathetic ensemble who were able to take these songs and shine them up to a magical gloss.
