The Outlaws – Outlaws (1975)

 

Release Date: 1975
Genre: Blues, Southern Blues, Southern Rock
Label: Arista
USA (Florida)

 

The Outlaws’ self-titled debut was released in 1975, a few years after the Allman Brothers Band’s greatest glories and a couple of years before the untimely demise of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Outlaws latched onto their Southern heritage by way of Florida, threw in some harmony by way of the Eagles, and then wrote a number of songs that played to their strengths. The result was — and is — a good classic rock & roll album.

Line up:

Hughie Thomasson: lead guitar, vocals,
Billy Jones: lead guitar, vocals,
Monte Yoho: drums,
Frank O’Keefe: bass guitar,
Henry Paul: electric and acoustic guitar, vocals.

The Marshall Tucker Band – The Marshall Tucker Band (1973)

 

Release Date: April 1973
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock, Southern Rock, Country Rock
Label: Capricorn
USA (Spartanburg, South Carolina)

 

Taking a page from their Capricorn Records labelmates and Southern rock contemporaries the Allman Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band issued a self-titled debut blending the long and winding psychedelic and jam band scene with an equally languid and otherwise laid-back country-rock flavor. Their free-spirited brand of Southern rock was a direct contrast to the badass rebel image projected by the Outlaws or Lynyrd Skynyrd. This difference is reflected throughout this 1973 long-player.

Line up:

Doug Gray: lead vocals, percussion
Toy Caldwell: lead guitar, steel guitar, lead vocals on « Can’t You See, » « Hillbilly Band, » and « AB’s Song »
Tommy Caldwell: bass guitar, percussion, background vocals
George McCorkle: rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar, percussion

For one so young Joanne Shaw Taylor is not only treat as an equal in what might be the most snobbish of musical genres but genuinely revered by many much older guitarists and this, her third album could well be the one that attracts the ears of Big League Promoters across the Atlantic Ocean. When Joanne Shaw Taylor picks up her guitar and starts tearing into a tune, she channels the sweaty energy of a smoky blues bar at midnight. Her singing is just as gritty and soulful, a throaty growl that conveys the blistering emotions that are her stock in trade. She doesn’t waste any time getting down to business.

Joanne Shaw Taylor – White Sugar (2009)

 

Release Date: May 12, 2009
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock
Label: RUF RECORDS
UK (Birmingham)

 

Born and raised in the Black Country, Joanne was originally discovered by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart as a 16 year old guitar prodigy. Through hard work and near-constant touring, she is now one of the hottest young names on the British Blues circuit. She is admired and respected by many leading blues guitarists including Joe Bonamassa. Although Taylor’s style is definitely bluesy, as a blues vibe encompasses most of White Sugar, it’s easily noticeable that her music crosses the line into rock quite a bit. With that said, the album’s closer will certainly arouse awareness in staunch blues fans.

‘Few Short Lines’ is the seventeenth album by British blues institution the Blues Band. Formed from the remnants of Manfred Mann, McGuinness Flint and the John Dummer Blues Band, the five piece quickly established a reputation for excellence both in the studio and live performances. Their brand of energetic rhythm and blues remains as fresh and powerful today as it ever was, while their musicianship goes from strength to strength with each new release. This is very much a modern blues album, but it is one which remains loyal to its heritage.
