Diablo Canyon
Tyler S. Roe | Georgia, USA | 12/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I agree, except the Outlaws are not done! This is classic Outlaws at their best. Sounds like a classic 70's rock record. Hughie Thomason put together some great players + one heckuva recording here. Recorded at Phoenix Studios (the old Capricorn in Macon, GA where the Allmans and Marshall Tucker recorded some classics) you'll also hear Gary Rossington and Billy Powell from Skynyrd on "Macon Blues". A must buy for southern rock fans! A Fender Musical Instruments "Living Guitar Legend" Hughie is currently on tour with Skynyrd but he says the Outlaws will be back and I believe him."

"I'm rarely blown away the first time I hear a CD... in fact, mostly I'm disappointed that the material isn't consistently top-shelf. But, occasionally, my faith in the purity of the music is rewarded. It happened with Travis Tritt's "Down the Road I Go", and lo and behold, it happened again with "Diablo Canyon". How in the world did it happen that it took me 10 years to find out this CD even EXISTED? That's a sad commentary on the big music labels, and another story entirely. Let's get to the main picture here... I could write this review in many different ways. I could say a) Diablo Canyon proves that Hughie Thomasson was the driving talent behind The Outlaws, or b) Diablo Canyon is the missing link between country/southern rock in the 70's/80's and the 21st century, or c) Simply, this CD kicks ass and is the logical progression of The Outlaws into the 21st century, or d) all previous answers are correct. I'll choose d). How rare is it that there are NO weak tracks on a CD? You have it here. Two (of 10) may be "different", but they are solid in their own right. My God! How could it be that there was no followup to this CD?!?!!?? What a damn shame!!!! Where would this music have evolved to in 2004? All I can say is... this CD has my HIGHEST recommendation. It's where Southern Rock should be, it's where Country should be, and it's where YOU should be by 2004 and beyond. If you're a Southern rock fan, a Country fan, an Outlaws fan, and you don't like Diablo Canyon...? Turn in your membership card, 'cause you must be below ground!"
Hughie can still bring it...

"Hughie and his band of hired guns really light it up with this cd. The bottom line is this is one of the best southern rock cds of the 1990's! The guitar trade-offs of Hughie and Chris Hicks are top-rate and the rest of the supporting cast contributes greatly to form a tight, kick-ass southern rock outfit. As John Markoski stated in his review there are no weak tracks on this cd. Pick any track and if you are a southern rock or Outlaws fan for that matter, you will not be disappointed. The listener also hears blues, bluegrass and melodic influences. All things you would expect on an Outlaws cd. This cd didn't get much publicity when it was released for two reasons. Firstly it was released on the small Blues Bureau International label and secondly southern rock is not promoted at all anymore by record companies. If you were wondering if this release was worth the $ the answer is a definite yes. Does anybody know what "So Low" sounds like? Outlaws reunion hopefully just around the corner...."
