The Outlaws have today’s almost forgotten track

once The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd had established themselves, there seemed to be a new “southern rock” band emerging on a monthly basis…most were pretty good, with the seasoning that comes from constant club play on a circuit that made none of the musicians even blink an eye when they discovered that the stages were surrounded by chicken wire for their own protection…I’ve featured some of the second level of southern rock before, even, I’m sure, this band though more likely their version of Ghost Riders in the Sky…this is a good long one with Hughie Thomasson and the rest of the band stretching out a little on one of their best numbers…hope you have time to listen to it all and rediscover the band…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.author of ‘Today’s Almost Forgotten Track’
