Charlie Daniels Band - as the band's roots go way back to the early 70's, but we featured this album in the new releases slot a number of months ago and we've had many requests to hear more from this great album since then. Fiddle player/guitarist and vocalist Charlie Daniels is obviously the leader of this famous country rock outfit. They released their debut album, "Te John, Grease & Wolfman" on the Kama Sutra label in 1973 (re-released on Epic five years later). The band were up there with Calico, The Marshall Tucker Band, Lost Gonzo Band, etc, and certainly did their bit in establishing the country rock scene as a musical force to be reckoned with. Numerous excellent albums were released over the years, probably the best known ones being "Million Mile Reflections" with the band's major hit "The Devil went down to Georgia" and "Full Moon", with its "Legend of Wooley Swamp". Daniels has kept the band going all these years and has also released a number of albums under his own name. This new album, on Blue Hat Records, one of at least four for this label, is one of the band's best albums to date and is a good contender for one of our top 20 albums of this year.
