Hailing from Tampa, Florida, and wielding as many as three lead guitarists at a time, the Outlaws are perhaps one of the least likely bands to be deemed worthy of a major-label retrospective CD. Though supremely competent, the band is completely indistinguishable in both style and substance from earlier and better known acts of southern rock's golden age: Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Green Grass & High Tides culls 16 tracks from the five studio albums the Outlaws recorded between 1975 and 1980, including their two minor hits, "There Goes Another Love Song" and "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky." Recommended for southern-rock diehards only. --Roni Sarig

Ok, everyone is entitled to their humble opine regarding music, but one should be familiar with the gendre before attempting to publish a review on the material. The reason why the Outlaws didn't achieve the fame and fortune of the acts mentioned (Skynyrd, Allman's, MTB) was because they didn't succumb to the pressures to produce "poppy" hit tunes that got consistent airplay. MTB is more country blues/gospel rock, Allmans were blues/jazz/rock and Skynyrd rode on the talents of Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. The distiguishable factor of the Outlaws was the widely recognized (in the "southern rock circles) talents of Hughie Thomasson and (the late) Billy Jones who together with help from Henry Paul crafted songs laced with guitar solos that even the great Betts/Allman duo would have envied. This is not "just" an album that "southern rock" die hards would like, it is an album anyone who calls themselves a "music lover", should have.

The Outlaws put out a greatest hits album back in the eary 1980's that omitted one key element of the band, Henry Paul. This compilation is truely their "greatest hits" CD. From "Waterhole" to "Green Grass and High Tides" the Outlaws show why they were the smoothest sounding southern rock band of all time. Hughie Thomasson is one of the most original and unique guitar players of all time, and will always be my favorite, ahead of other southern greats such as Dicky Betts, Gary Rossington, and Allen Collens . This CD is a must for anyone interested in Southern rock, Country blues, or good ol' Rock and Roll!!!

The Outlaws had some of the best harmonies ever displayed by a rock and roll band. And their guitar playing was second to none. Hughie Thomasson and Billy Jones could easily compete with the Allmans, Skynyrd and any other Guitar tandem. The song Green Grass and High Tides is one of the greatest songs ever, as is Hurry Sundown and Ghost Riders. My only complaint is not enough Billy Jones' songs such as Cry No More. There were other songs that were unfortunately omitted like Angels Hide, Long Gone, Devils Road, So Afraid, and Song In The Breeze. This album is not only recommended for "die hard fans", but for any rock n roll or country fan. The musicianship and harmonies are definately worth it.

In the mid-70's, a little known band called THE OUTLAWS from Tampa, Florida, started making their way through the music charts reinforcing a relatively new genre of music called "Southern Rock." This was a true mesh of Rock n' Roll from the South with a Country flavor, and no other band heralds the center of Southern Rock than The Outlaws, except for Lynyrd Skynyrd. What turns out to be their signature song "Green Grass and High Tides" is one that is cast into history as one of the greatest lead guitar songs of all time and it ranks right up there alongside of what "Freebird" is to Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what "Stairway to Heaven" is to Led Zepplin. "Green Grass and High Tides" is a song that is any lead guitarist's dream to be able to emulate. The lightning fast lead guitar riffs, played largely by leader Hughie Thomasson, are truly the band's musical conscience. The Outlaws brought forth their "Guitar Army" into the limelight with many famous cuts featuring some of the most amazingly blistering fast lead guitar solos ever recorded. If you don't think this to be true, then I challenge you to pick-up a guitar yourself and see if you can actually keep up with these masters. If you can, come right on back and see me. The Outlaws took the dual-lead concept even further, by introducing the third lead guitar, and they created a blend of timeless classic southern rock songs that will continue to tug on the heartstrings of every guitar empressario (or armchair expert), as well as anyone else who truly loves music. I am so thankful that The Outlaws can still take me back to a time and a place when the music was as fresh as the paint on your neighbor's old muscle car.Read more ›

The editorial review's statement that this music is "completely undistinguishable" from other Southern Rock, and that it is for die-hards only is misleading, to say the least. The Outlaws had a distinctive sound and lyrics, much more Western than most of what is called "Southern Rock." There are some forgettable songs on this compilation, in my opinion, but it is worth owning for fans of 70s guitar-driven rock for several of the jewels herein, such as "Green Grass and High Tides," "Gunsmoke," "Hurry Sundown," and the lesser-known "Song For You," among others. The guitar-playing is excellent, but the tunes are also memorable. I would even describe some as haunting.

A good starting point for those unacquainted with the Outlaws and excellent collection of favorite/familiar tunes for fans. The mastering is crisp and clean which complements the crisp Fender guitar sounds. This offering has substantial representation by both Hughie Thomasson and Henry Paul. And yes, I admit to liking "Green Grass and High Tides" (so sue me). While I wish Thomasson and Paul would contribute some new Outlaws music, I guess that's like wishing that Larry Niven would write a new novel comparable to Ringworld. At least we have these recordings...
