CD Reviews

Finally on CD, one of the best Sourthern Rock record!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the debut album from Henry Paul, one of the original members of The Outlaws. After 3 great albums, he went solo, and the Outlaws went downhill. This record captures all of the energy of the Outlaws, while having a bit more "country" feel (think "Song In The Breeze" from the first Outlaws record, or "South Carolina" from the second). Like any good southern rock band, HPB features great guitar work. They also have tight harmonies, and well crafted songs. There's sveral high points, and no weak songs. "So Long" and "Crossfire" are particularly great. The obligatory dedication to Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie Van Zant, "Grey Ghost" is a great song, and carries the spirit of a tribute rather than a Eulogy. I particularly like the instrumental "wood-wind" that leads into it. This is one of my favotite southern rock records, up with Skynyrd's "Pronounced", CDB's "Saddle Tramp" and the first Outlaws disc."
One of the best ever.

"Every so often, rock&roll stations do their tributes, countdowns, lists of "greatest rock & roll songs of all time". I always find those countdowns to be a joke because of one main reason: no mention of the Henry Paul Band.
Grey Ghost is not only one of the best southern rock songs ever, but one of the greatest ROCK & ROLL recordings ever. The writing, singing, arranging, and guitar playing were all amazing. That said, you'd miss an awful lot if you only listen to the title track on this one. Good variety throughout. Only one thing was missing from this album: a filler song, of average quality! Every song is good or better."
A Must Have

"If you enjoy the Southern Rock of The Outlaws, then this is the disc for you. Former Outlaw's guitarist, Henry Paul, has assembled a group of top notch musicians to create an album that is truly a classic. From track 1 to track 10 every song is solid. Songs of note are "So Long" (melodic intro to a explosion of guitar licks, tasteful harmonies and various beat changes). "Lonely Dreamer" (where bluegrass and rock merge into one). "I Don't Need You No More" (blues style rock with excellent vocals). And of course the title track "Grey Ghost" the anthem of The Henry Paul Band. This album has been a mainstay in my collection since 1979. You cannot consider your collection complete without this disc.
