I bought the album with that tune back in about 1981 just for that tune.
Is that really live? If so it is as close to perfection (studio recording) as you could possibly get.
I'd really need to go see them the next time they come to town.
Currently, Don Barnes is the only original.. He's brilliant, and I'm sure he hires good musos, but it won't be the band in the above vid. Still, might be worth seeing. IMHO, Don Barnes heading up a band is something worth checking out.
Ohhhh, I thought it was Hold on Lucy.
Loved that song - I as well bought the album back in '81 for that song and "Fantasy Girl"
Reminded me of this.I always enjoyed the lead break,and seems I could hum every part of it.
But here's Carlisi at a clinic doing his solo:
very fun.... lots of happy memories about that song... and I love one look on Carlisi's face during that solo... I know that look... when you hit a sound that is 'it'... my buddy al calls it the 'god' note... where you see it all.
Oh yeah! That was really the great days of Southern Rock.
I saw them a few nights earlier in Tucson. They were unbelievably tight that night. Flawless, really.
Back then it was the true measure of all bands, how closely they were to the studio recording.
Been tryin to decided between Explorer or Flying V for my next guitar purchase.That Lead is exactly the sound I'm looking for!! Always have dug that song! One of those "turn it up!!' tunes!
Yup... One of my favourite leads of all time. Like you said, seems I could hum every part of it.
Always liked them. This is probably my favorite. The video is ruined by the showboating Van Zant (in the white coat). Never really cared for him or his two brothers.
And sometimes not in a good way. Stamping out the tune the same way with the same notes isn't necessarily a good thing.
Hold up man.It was a music video.You're supposed to stuff like that.
I always felt like he was trading on his brother's reputation. The showboating's worse in the "Hold on Loosely" video. Running around pumping his fist, wearing Ronnie's 's hat.
Like others in this thread, I bought the "Wild Eyed Southern Boys" album for a few songs, but never really liked the band. In addition to Donny's act, it kinda sorta all sounds the same to me so a little bit goes a long way.
I was a kid when this came out, and because of the production style I thought they were a new wave-ish band like The Cars. I was really surprised a year or so later when I saw them on TV looking like a bunch of hicks.
good band, sharp guitar! always loved the rhythm part, too
In that solo, he's not playing the same notes that we're hearing. They may have overdubbed the solo. The vocals aren't perfect, so I think they might be the live vocals.
