In the days when you had real bands who played their own instruments the prevailing thinking was you had 11 years to make your first record and 11 months to make the follow up. There are countless examples of great debut albums being followed by "turkeys"! That was not the case here with Florida's "guitar army" - The Outlaws

"Lady in Waiting" picked up the reins from the Outlaws recording debut. The LP was released on the Arista label in 1976. Starting with the single release "Breaker Breaker" (which just broke into the US Top 100) the 5-piece came up with another clutch of catchy country rockers with a nice spread across the genre's spectrum. Paul's "South Carolina" featured Albert Lee-type nimble picking with both guitarists (Hughie Thomasson & Billy Jones) blazing away on a straight country track. Jones again came up with more laid-back bluesier numbers in "Ain't So Bad" and "Prisoner" where the dual guitars on the former cast a nod in the direction of the Allmans, while the latter has no real country influences at all.

"Freeborn Man" (which was previously covered by Glen Campbell) is pure country until the tempo changes and the transformation into a heavy boogie is one of many highlights of this album. "Lover Boy" is another track which speeds up, and then fades out with some muscular interplay between Jones and Thomasson. "South Carolina" was the 2nd composition by Henry Paul who displayed the strongest country roots and who later tasted greater commercial success with Blackhawk.

The album closer Thomasson's "Stick Around for Rock'n'Roll" again moves the band nearer to Southern Rock, except for the ensemble singing through the choruses.

I saw the Outlaws supporting the Who in Swansea in 1976. I was impressed, so I bought this album, I was less impressed (to country influenced for me). However, the intervening years have greatly changed my feelings about country music and I re-bought this on CD (as well as a compilation and their first album). The Outlaws were a southern band, not quite as good as the Allman's or Lynyrd Skynyrd, but good none the less. As I stated, they were more country influenced than most other southern bands.

Their first album was excellent, this one is good (particularly the guitar work on 'Stick Around For Rock & Roll), the next one poorer, the next worse etc. The band was also hit by a series of tragedies/deaths, something they share with the other great southern bands i.e. The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Another Great Album from the Florida Guitar Army 23 April 2003
By John Curley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Another great album. You are going to get all the great guitar work and vocal harmony you expect from the boys from Tampa.
There are no big radio numbers on this album, but all the tunes are strong. "Breaker, Breaker" is good country/rock pop, a tune about a man heading home to his woman. "South Carolina", written by now Blackhawk lead singer Henry Paul, is a real country number with some real picking and grinning from Hughie Thomasson and Billy Jones.
"Ain't So Bad" is a smooth ballad from Billy Jones and "Freeborn Man" is a real country boogie tune that was written by Paul Revere and the Raiders vocalist Mark Lindsay. Of course, the Outlaws put their signature on this song like only they can.
"Stick Around For Rock and Roll" has all the chops that a guitar connoiseur is looking for. This is the signature guitar tune on the album.
"Lover Boy" and "Just For You" are more strong country rock boogie numbers. "Girl From Ohio" is more of the straight country variety from Henry Paul and "Prisoner" is another smooth number from William Harry Jones.
A good follow up album to their self-titled debut album "Outlaws".

A Second Helping of Southern Rock 23 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a sophomore effort, this album as a whole is more lyrically and musically imaginative than the eponymous first effort. Noticably missing is a top 40 single such as "There goes another love song" and the anthemic "Green Grass and High Tides". However, this album does not dissapoint. Beautiful yet powerful tunes and Eagles-esque vocal harmonies surely set this band apart from the other Southern Rock bands of its day and this album is a great example of the Outlaws vocal prowess. A great listen to loud with your car windows open driving down the boulevard on a sunny fall day. This is happy soulful music at its best.

Stick around for rock & roll 1 Mar. 2002
By Rod Pritchard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Excellent!! I said this back in the 70s and I hold by it today, this is southern rock at it's finest. "Freeborn Man" and "Stick around for rock & roll" are just a couple tunes on this CD that will get you kickin up your heels. This band is in a class all it's own. Nothin compares, not today, not 30 years ago.

a genuine rock and roll band 24 Oct. 2008
By Ross Mandell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Original Outlaws only recorded three studio albums and one live one. Outlaws, Lady in Waiting, and Hurry Sundown. This one is more country influenced than the other two and has no obvious radio hit, but all the songs are good and extremely well played. My favorite is The Girl From Ohio. This country influenced rock and roll charmer is worth the price of the whole album.

Lady In Waiting, like others have said, is the Outlaws' sophomore effort and it is superb by all means. While it may not have been recorded with as much "brightness" as their wonderful debut, the sound quality still ranks very high considering this was 1976. But you also have to take into account that the Outlaws were one of the very first groups to be recorded in a brand new studio (Arista Records) decked out with all new recording equipment back in the day. Needless to say, everything rings like a bell from start to finish. It makes me wish that Lynyrd Skynyrd had an Arista record label, but that's besides the point.

All of the songs are evenly themed throughout, if you will. Lady In Waiting took on the country theme that the debut did, but it has a smoother vibe that blends blues and a hint of jazz into the mix. To me, this album goes well with the fall and winter seasons when the weather is cold. For example, Billy Jones' "Prisoner" and the remix in the middle of Freeborn Man. It has a sound that reminds me of winter. But that's what blues and jazz always remind me of.

This album, as well as the Outlaws' debut and third album, were produced in an era in history that won't come back. By that, I mean the "cowboy culture" craze in the 70's. I may have been born in the 80's, but through the years, I've seen Smokey and the Bandit, watched Dukes of Hazzard, Convoy, as well as dull westerns to figure out that this was the bee's knees to everyone back then. Sadly, I think when cowboy culture died, the Outlaws, as well as Marshall Tucker went down with it. And what was considered rock n roll back then, sounds like country to a lot of classic rock stations, which is probably why I never heard a lick of the Outlaws in all of the 16 respective years that I've been listening to classic rock radio. That's just my hunch and I'm not saying it's accurate, but if you think about it, I'd say when everyone associated the Outlaws with what was once a popular movement, they were forgotten and not passed on to the younger generation when it died. It surprises me, though. There are some 12 year old kids who love the Outlaws, but I'm guessing they most likely discovered them on a video game. Nothing wrong with that! It's good music for them! I, on the other hand, didn't discover the Outlaws that way. An older gentleman mentioned them to me back in high school (10 years now) and to make a long story short, osmosis more or less had something to do with it. It just had to soak in and finally, it clicked! Skynyrd was my favorite band, but all I've been listening to and playing guitar along with for the past 3 years is Outlaws!

I would have given this 5/5 stars, but I was disappointed that I wasn't able to get it in CD format at a reasonable price. I tried to get the CD from an F.Y.E. store and explained to them the jacked up price on here. That's where I learned when it's over $40 (now $85) for a CD that should normally be $10, it's no longer in print. So I just settled with the downloadable MP3 album, which is just as good, but you lack the physical portion which is what I like to have because I like to look through the booklets for any unseen action shots and literature. Yes I'm sort of a youngin', but I love the Outlaws' music.

Since I can't really recommend buying this album on CD to make a great gift, I will say if you're from the older generation of music that may be otherwise a bit obscure from the rest like Lynyrd Skynyrd, I strongly encourage you to shed some light on the Outlaws to your [should be now] grandchildren if you are scratching your head on their interest in music. Happy listening y'all!
