5.0 out of 5 stars .38 before they sold out September 8, 2000
By Zane
Format:Audio CD
This CD has the classic .38 Special sound before they went top 40. Nothing fancy here---just some good old southern rock 'n roll. "Hold on Loosely" is hands down the best song they have ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mix of Southern and Melodic Rock November 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
.38 Special's fourth album in 1981 excellently blends southern rock vibe with melodic hard rock. Jim Peterik known as Survivor's keyboardist and songwriter was instrumental in adding melodic hard rock vibe penning HOLD ON LOOSELY which became their first major hit and FANTASY GIRL second single which became a minor hit. Jim Peterik also co-wrote HITTIN' AND RUNNIN' and WILD EYED SOUTHERN BOYS, the title track. HOLD ON LOOSELY is one of my all time favorite songs among the excellent songs Jim have created so far including Survivor. At the latter part Lynard influenced nice southern rock can be tasted. Essential for early 80s pop rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars .38 Special's Second Great One In A Row September 22, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
WILD-EYED SOUTHERN BOYS was .38 Special's second great album in a row. The first two cuts- "Hold On Loosely" and "First Time Around", as well as "Hittin' And Runnin'"- are downright cautionary in their lyrical content; the title track is pure boogie heaven; and "Fantasy Girl" is simple Southern pop-rock. A few songs are filler, but the great ones make this album worthy of 5 stars.

This music will make you feel like smiling. It brings back a wealth of memories of our high school and early college days, and all the fun and craziness that went with it.
No collection will be complete with out it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best southern fried rock albums
This is arguably the best album that 38 special ever made. The two songs that put this over the top are "Fastasy girl" and radio hit "Hold on loosely". Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a great intro to a band that does not get press now
This album showcases who this band is - wild, southern and loud...you will like it and sing proudly of a group that sang and played hard.
