Second Album, Second Best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lady in Waiting: Remastered (Audio CD)
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.
