My Favorite CDB Disc......

"I was a big Charlie Daniels fan throughout the 70's, and Saddle Tramp was my faorite album (edging out Fire On The Mountain). The opus title track is definitive CDB, with a great jam session. "its my Life", Cumberland Mountain #9" and "Sweet Louisianna" are all outstanding songs. Only "Wichita Jail" is average. I wore out my vinyl, and am thrilled to have a clean, clear digital version.....
Cdb's finest hour

"Since music always seems to be in needs of unfortunate labeling i've always thought of The Charlie Daniels Band as progressive country. Their musicianship pushes so many different, eclectic musical styles it's hard to classify them as just southern rock or country. This album is my favorite of their catalog and showcases their many talents. "Dixie On My Mind" starts off the album with a burning tempo reminiscent of "Texas" on the previous album. The opus of this record is the title track clocking in at over ten minutes long. This gem shines a light on Charlie's guitar playing as well as Tommy Crain. The double drumming and bass are solid throughout and the often overlooked Taz kicks it on the keys. These guys are incredible musicians. Saw The Cdb two years ago and was surprised and impressed when they performed this song in the set after all these years.
"Sweet Louisiana" is a bluesy romp featuring some more fine guitar work. "Wichita Jail" is short and sweet but contains some typical funny Charlie lyrics. "Cumberland Mountain Number 9" is a Tommy Crain penned tune. Not my favorite of his but it still works. "It's My Life" is a 6 minute diamond with great playing and lyrics. More excellent guitar work on this. They remade this in the 90's but it was definitely missing the jamming and punch of this version. The album closes with one of my all time favorites "Sweetwater, Texas". Charlie wrote this one alone and it features great lyrics and a waltz tempo. He plays a soft fiddle on it and his voice sounds great.
This album is a great capsule of the band's abilities. Rock,country,blues,jazz progressions all intertwined throughout 7 songs. The only thing missing is one Taz tune. Would highly recommend this album if you want to find out what the CDB is all about besides the major radio hits."
More Great Charlie Daniels

"SADDLE TRAMP is another great Charlie Daniels album. It contains several great songs, including the hard-jamming title track. If you love A DECADE OF HITS, FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN, HIGH LONESOME, MILLION MILE REFLECTIONS, FULL MOON, THE LIVE RECORD, or SUPER HITS, then you'll love SADDLE TRAMP."
