"I have been a CDB fan for who knows how long. This album shows Charlie at his lean and basic best. For a first solo album, it is not a bad CD to listen to, though it gets a little embarrasing to listen to at times. Charlie sounds like he is trying so hard to make this album a success which is quite understandable. The best cut on this CD has to be "39 Miles From Mobile." If you listen to it in a vacuum, you could swear that it is part of the Fire On The Mountain song repitore. The following album, "Te John Grease and Wolfman" fares a little better and it sounds like he is more comfortable with singing. The third album, "Honey In The Rock" is the definite icing on the cake, the definitive CDB. I have to admit that this album is better than Fire On The Mountain because the songs on Honey In The Rock was sung with all out soul. The fourth album, "Way Down Yonder" shows a marked maturity from his earlier album and it rocks! Why the HECK aren't "Te John Grease And Wolfman," "Honey In The Rock," and "Way Down Yonder" reissued on CD??? There's too many people out there that thought Charlie began his recording career in 1974, which is in fact, in 1970!!"

"My brain is somewhat foggy, this site does not list the tracks of the CD. I never thought this would be released on CD. As the other reviewer stated, this is for diehard fans. Under the "diehard" context I would give all his early albums fives. I remember Honey in the Rock well, I never had Te John, but I'm confused about the first solo album. Mind you my mind is foggy after all these years, but the first one had the state of Tennessee on the cover(roadmap) I think. Had the song with the lyrics, "If the CIA and the FCC and the IRS found out that J. Edger Hoover and the FBI owned stock in ATT". Classic, or what.
The album I cannot remember is the one of Charlie Daniels leaning on the bar on the cover. For the life of me I can't remember any of the songs on that one. I think also, he might have repackaged one of these with a different album cover, also. But anyway, Out on the desert when the wind blows the sand..............Go buy this one, I remember most of the lyrics, and haven't heard them in twenty years."
