    I love(d) those guys!
    So many great songs.
    The late Barry “Byrd” Burton was a great player!
    I love Third Rate Romance, The End Is Not In Sight, Amazing Grace Used To Be Her Favorite Song, Out In The Snow, i’ll Be Gone, and Norma Jean.
    Back then, bands played “together”.
    They served the song, and their audience.
    H. Russell Smith is a brilliant singer/song writer.

    I saw the Outlaws 1st show in NYC opening for Jefferson Starship in Central Park. They really kicked Southern-Country rock for the time. Don't remember what year, 75?

    The Aces: on every cassette of random play of mine, along with the Outlaws.
    Oops, Outlaws on 8 track. Good times.

    A real jewel on that ARA album is "king of the cowboys". A perfectly written tune about childhood heroes with a haunting melody. Really love that tune.

    I'd better go find it and listen!

    Did you know Radney went to Sewanee? It was some time before I was there, but he is an alum.

    The Outlaws opened for Jefferson Starship? What a bizarre pairing.

    I love the original, but I also absolutely love this Arlo West cover. If you read his comments some of you older members will know who he sent it out to.

    One of my first concerts was the Aces opening for Marshall Tucker in Macon @ 1975. A great show. I was also fortunate to see the Outlaws many times in Macon & Atlanta in the late 70's. Loved the Aces & although I don't gig much anymore, when I do I always play Third Rate Romance.

    Not as bizarre as The Ramones warming up for Head East and Black Sabbath. I saw that show in the late 70's.
