By the mid-'70s, Southern bands seemed be making a last stand for rock & roll, with two- and three-guitar lineups and not a keyboard in sight. The Outlaws' self-titled debut was released in 1975, a few years after the Allman Brothers Band's greatest glories and a couple of years before the untimely demise of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Outlaws latched onto their Southern heritage by way of Florida, threw in some harmony by way of the Eagles, and then wrote a number of songs that played to their strengths. The result was — and is — a good classic rock & roll album. Several of the Outlaws' best songs are present here, including "There Goes Another Love Song," "Green Grass and High Tides," and "Song for You." Hughie Thomasson only sings lead on these three songs, but since two of them were the best-known Outlaw songs, it is his voice that is most associated with the band. It's fun to hear cuts like "Song for You" and "Knoxville Girl," which never received a lot of radio play. "Keep Prayin'," sung by Henry Paul and Billy Jones, is a fine piece of Southern boogie with high soaring harmony on the chorus. Although "Green Grass and High Tides" has been played a million and six times on album-oriented rock stations, it nonetheless deserves mention. Created in the tradition of the Allman Brothers Band's "Dreams" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird," the song still sounds fresh in the context of the album, and doesn't feel long at its nearly ten-minute length. The Outlaws' debut blew a fresh blast of rock & roll onto a scene increasingly dominated by synthesizers and dance music. It will leave the listener singing along and dreaming about the good ol' days. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi
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.
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 !!!!!
