iTunes Review

Not alt-country but genuine “outlaw” country in the tradition of Waylon Jennings, Johnny Paycheck and David Allan Coe, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s play it like it’s 1978 all over again and their hometown of Flint, Michigan has factory workers in need of some beer and entertainment. J.D. Loudermilk’s “Bad News” kicks things off with Bob Dylan sideman Larry Campbell on pedal steel and Eric David Allen (Whitey Morgan) singing in a perfect country baritone. “Turn Up the Bottle” rallies the disappearing working class. “Buick City” keeps things motoring along on the production line. “Meanest Jukebox In Town” struggles to channel George Jones in its deep, swooning old-country groove. “Cheaters Always Lose” serves up a tear-in-the-beer country weeper. “Honky Tonk Queen” looks back decades with verve and style. “I Ain’t Drunk” keeps the “outlaw” in the country with its sense of defiance (“I’m just being cranky” sings Allen over some nicely calibrated Telecasters.) Much like how the Iron City Houserockers once defined old-school Pittsburgh, WM and the 78’s revive old-time Flint.

Whitey morgan album

This album is flipping awesome!!! I personally like Hardscratch Pride. Whitey does an excellent job keeping real country going. I thought Honkey tonks and cheap motels would be a hard album to top, but this album does. The sky is the limit. You can listen to the whole cd, every song is good. If you like waylon, get this album.

Get it Son

Whitey, Jeremy and crew did Michigan, Flint, and Ferndale good by this album. Get it.

Jeff Robinson doesn't know what he is talking about!

If your a fan of good country music then Whitey's new album is well worth $9.99. JR is clearly writing his review based on listening to just the samples provided by iTunes. Sorry JR, but you need to stick with your garage rock revival band The Hives;)


Genre: Country

Although he resides in the automotive capital of Flint, MI, vocalist/guitarist Whitey Morgan (real name Eric Allen) is a country boy through and through -- and one particularly beholden to Waylon Jennings and his fellow outlaw country posse -- David Allan Coe, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Ray Wylie Hubbard, as well as country traditionalists Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. In 2005, Morgan began assembling a group of sympathetic Motor City musicians to become his 78's, these being guitarists...
