Danny Joe Brown was the lead singer for Molly Hatchet, a hard-rock sextet from Jacksonville, Florida. Molly Hatchet had numerous high charting albums from the late 70's into the mid 80's. Danny Joe left Molly Hatchet in 1980 and formed his own group, Danny Joe Brown & The Danny Joe Brown Band. They only issued one album, which has never appeared on CD anywhere in the world until now! Fans will scarf this one up like hot cakes! Wounded Bird. 2004.

"His voice was as recognizable as Hendrix guitar. Hatch was the first and ONLY real southern HARD rock band that made a strong statement and engrained themselves in millions forever. Danny Joes vocal's with the bands musical style is timeless. A sad day it was when we lost him."
Underappreciated Southern Rock!

"Good Southern Rock isn't plentiful, but always popular throughout the Southeast. This solo effort by Molly Hatchet's lead singer satisfies - and is almost totally unknown. Better than nearly all of what Molly Hatchet itself ever put forth! A bunch of 3-star efforts with maybe a 4-star or two thrown in. No "Dreams I'll Never See" here, but try "Edge of Sundown" and "Gambler's Dream" - you'll like!
So why is it so forgetten? Besides the album cover, well, you know, there's a gazillion kead singers who try solo endeavors away from their bands, and so many of them fall flat. Such people do have there fans, who buy them and swear by them, only to mislead the rest of us. Maybe I'm biased, but I really do believe this one's exceptional. Why he ever returned to Molly Hatchet I'll never know. These guys could really play, and all we got from the return was maybe "Last of the Peacemakers". This stuff is better than that one."

"This is probably the hardest rocking of any "southern rock" album of the 1975-1985 period, bordering on being more of a "southern metal" on some songs. If you're into other 80's AOR or hard rock, you'll like this - you don't have to be a southern rock type of fan to appreciate it. I liked it enough to burn my own CDs from vinyl LP copies before you could buy a CD (except perhaps for internet auction site bootlegs), and I like it better than a lot of what he did with Hatchet. Then again there's a reason why they still play "Edge of Sundown" live, even in the current lineup with Phil McCormick. If I remember right this album came about because of a feud in Hatchet that let to Jimmy Farrar taking over singing duties for a couple of albums."
