Despite three amusing numbers featuring Hank Hill and his animated pals, this CD captures little of the sitcom’s earthy humanity. The Mavericks’ salsa-fied ”Down on the Corner” and the Old 97s’ jittery ”El Paso” are fine, as is Willie Nelson’s duet with Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath. But throwaways from the likes of Barenaked Ladies and Sheryl Crow are unlikely to supplant Chuck Mangione on the Hill family hi-fi.
