Henry Paul Band
Henry was a key member of the Outlaws. He made 2 albums with this band, both are very good Southern rock'n roll albums from start to finish. If you like that kind of music, this album is a no brainer.
Southern Cookin' Tastes So Good!
Growing up with southern roots myself, (my mom was born in South Carolina), I've always been a rabid fan of southern rock. The Outlaws will always hold a special place in my heart and I think if I had to explain why it would have to be their unparalleled musical talent, beautiful vocal harmonies and down to earth songwriting. When I heard that Henry Paul had left the Outlaws, I was first surprised and then saddened. The songs he had contributed to the Outlaws were some of my favorites including "Knoxville Girl", "Girl From Ohio", "Song In The Breeze", and "Gunsmoke". I eagerly followed his "solo" career through his first two albums and was not disappointed. I was at college when "Anytime" was released and I immediately bought it with high expectations. I was not disappointed! If you love southern rock you will not be disappointed either! This is the kind of album that has great rockers throughout. I mean, I can remember just slapping it on my turntable at school and rockin' out to every single song! Sure, their might be some tunes that I like more than others, but all of them are good. Looking back, I think the most pleasant surprise on the album was the cover of the Van Morrison song "Brown Eyed Girl". At that point in my life, I didn't even know who Van Morrison was, and I just figured this was an original tune by Henry Paul. I'm not usually a great fan of cover songs but this one is great! It was much later that I heard the original by Van Morrison and I love that one too. The vocal harmonies on "Anytime" are just beautiful and the guitar work throughout the album just kicks butt! Yeah, this album brings back a lot of memories and all of them are good! So if you like southern rock, and especially the Outlaws, then you need to give this CD a listen. It's guaranteed not to leave you hungry! Southern fried music never tasted soooooooo good! Enjoy!
