A Southern Classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: Hurry Sundown: Remastered (Audio CD)
The release of this album on CD format has long been overdue. Why? Because this is a classic album from one of the Souths greatest rock bands.
The Outlaws were always living in the shadow of thee greatest Southern Rock Band - Lynyrd Skynyrd, but this album proved that they could easily compete with the standard that Skynyrd had set the rest of the competition below the Mason Dixon Line.
From the opening bars of "Gunsmoke" through the in concert classics of "Holiday", "Hurry Sundown" and "Cold & Lonesome", this album takes you on an Outlaw journey of lonesome nights on the plains, bar room brawls and loose women! The four guitar attack along with the various vocal styles make the tracks originally laid down by the band in the mid 70's still sound as strong and fresh as ever today.
So if you were ever curious and needed an excellant introduction to the formidable sound of Southern Rock, you will do little wrong in buying this Outlaw classic.
