The Precursor to Fire on the Moutain on CD at Last!

"Whiskey is a 1977 LP re-issue of the 1974 album Way Down Yonder. Presumably, the album was re-named and marketed in 1977 to capitalize on the popularity of the country rock and outlaw country genres. Whiskey, however, quickly disappeared into obscurity only to re-surface as a long overdue CD reissue on the outstanding Wounded Bird Records in 2008. Because of these circumstances and its long absence from print, Whiskey is somewhat of a "lost" Charle Daniels Band album.
Whiskey plays like a distilled version of 1975's masterpiece Fire on the Mountain. A huge improvement over the disappointing 1973 effort Honey in the Rock, Whiskey is a solid country rock effort that makes it clear that Charlie Daniels was the pace setter for the genre by 1974. While Whiskey is not as polished as Fire on the Mountain and many of the other albums released during Charlie Daniels' commercial zenith, the album is every bit as much fun to listen to, if not more.
This is a must-have for listeners of the Charlie Daniels Band who long for another album like Fire on the Mountain, Nightrider, High Lonesome and Saddle Tramp."
Good effort from the cdb

"being a big fan of cdb, i thought i'd push this one a little.be it known that, yes, i do love a decade of hits. but i have been collecting the others as well and getting to know him better.
this cd is strong cd, favoring blues to the rock vein of music. very little fiddle, which was a bummer as it is a big draw for me with country music.
despite the minimal use of the traditional feel of a redneck hillbilly sound, this cd is a good country classic country rock feel. if you're looking for the more hillbilly feel, i would start with nightrider or saddeltramp."
