“THE ETERNAL APPEAL of southern rock lies mainly in its integrity and righteous sense of belonging. It’s a music that had been condensed from folk, blues and traditional country, then shot through with electric rock ‘n roll.
Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers Band were the kings of the genre, each giving birth to a new breed of groups who built their reputation on those very foundations. The Outlaws, a fiery guitar driven ensemble from Tampa, Florida took the same blue print and blazed their way from the clubs and bars to headline status in some of the largest venues in the US. Henry Paul was an integral member of the band as a songwriter and vocalist, until he struck out on his own in 1979. Enlisting the help of several gifted friends, he formed his own band and signed an impressive contract with Atlantic Records, going on to craft one of the best southern rock albums of the 70s, a record that has continued to garner a dedicated following and much critical acclaim. Crammed full of well written and arranged songs, including ‘Cross Fire’ and ‘So Long’, the album’s unquestionable highlight is the title track itself, a poignant epic written very much as a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd and in particular front man Ronnie Van Zant. It is a track that has it all; heart wrenching lyrics, a brilliant arrangement and a lengthy guitar solo in the finest southern rock tradition. Truly a milestone in the genre’s long and proud history.”
