Awesome ride home from work today listening to this!
ive always loved the outlaws, great tune
As a 13 year old kid I would pop on the live version(one whole side of an LP) and practice to that song. Gave me about 22 min of a work out in Em.
On another note...think how modern mastering techniques would deal with the dynamics of the beginning of that tune.
RIP Hughie, Frank and Billy
Id like to remix 'Hurry Sundown' that'd be fun.
But really, i wouldnt change a thing about the outlaws, saw them 4 or 5 times, once from the 18th row at the Boston Music Hall, tho i dont remember.............
Saw them last summer at Moondance Jam. Thought they were one of the best that weekend.
Hughie was a BEAST!
I struggle with a band calling themselves Outlaws without either of these two guys. Henry Paul just wasn't really part of the signature sound.
I saw them live quite a few times. Always enjoyed them. I was always the Billy Jones player in my high school bands.
I love 'green grass & high tides', one of my all time favorite songs. I've been learning it on and off and love the way it sounds on an acoustic. Wish I could I could play it better, lol!
To this day, every time I pick up a Gibson and try to get a solo tone, the sound in my head is Billy Jones on Bring It Back Alive. That has been my favorite guitar album for the last 30 years or so. They are my biggest influences on the instrument. They are definitely my favorite band of all time.
Great song, great band.
What a song. What an album! I wore out the groves!
i saw them in the 70's when they we opening for ABB and Marshall Tucker. Great band!!
They were a touring staple for sure. Saw them the first time open for the Doobies, and later on Bad Co and UFO.
The gearhead observer in me came out strong. LOL
I had a Music Man HD130/reverb head and Ampeg V4 cab within a year after that Bad Co show. Hughie got such a great sound of that rig....I had to have one like it!
I have to admit I'd never heard of them before. Where have I been, living under a rock?! Thanks for posting it, now I must spend some money....
P.S. I love Em.
I learned this note for note when I was younger while my friends were learning Metallica covers. They were a little before my time but this song floored me from the first chord. One of the best southern rock bands ever!
Hearing this for the first time in ages brought me back to a great time in my life. Funny how music does that
My favorite song of theirs is from the same album: Song For You. I just absolutely love it. Such great vocals. Billy Jones' sound on this tune is one of the best representations of the PAF sound since Duane on Boz Scaggs' record--the nice, nasally PAF bite. Their first album is still a great listen.
