iTunes Review

The Outlaws' 1975 debut album has things in common with lots of Southern country rock traditionalists, including the song smoothness and guitar picking of The Marshall Tucker Band and the rock-radio songwriting aplomb of Lynryd Skynryd. (Both “Green Grass and High Tides” and the great “There Goes Another Love Song” still heavily populate classic rock radio.) But there are things here that give the band a true sonic identity: for one thing, no Southern rock band could’ve penned the beautifully pensive “It Follows from Your Heart,” nor did any share the same penchant for tricky sunny Southern California harmonies of the Poco/Eagles variety. “Knoxville Girl” stands alone as a winning blend of rowdy bluegrass and dueling rock ’n’ roll guitars. But some comparisons are fun: “Stay with Me” could’ve been a great New Riders of the Purple Sage song, and The Grateful Dead could’ve hit the singles chart hard with “Keep Prayin’.” The best song here is “Song for You,” a singable heartbreaker about unintentionally letting down the one you love; its sentiment of personal responsibility is rare for the era and genre.

Customer Reviews

YES - THE COMPLETE ALBUM!!!!

I was 18 when this album was first released. The crystal clear harmonies and the tremendous guitar playing, both leads and rhythm, are absolutely stellar. I believe this album showed that Southern rock was not a bunch of rednecks, but artists. And this album is the benchmark for this genre. It hit during a peak for Southern rock - sort of between the Allmans and 38 Special. But my heavens, if you like good guitar music and absolutely flawless multiple voice harmonies, take the plunge on this album. I love all ten of the songs and it's just wonderful that iTunes listens to its customers - they added GG&HT to make the album complete. I'll be downloading this over the weekend.

GIT-R-DUN !

Probably one of the the most underated bands as well as forgotten ones to ever exist. I would like to thank iTunes for remembering where the roots truly lie and along with the memories and good times music truly creates for all kinds of people. Hell,Yea !!!!!
