Product Description

The Lawless is another equisitely crafted Cd by Kevin Deal. The songs have that familiar, but on edge Lone Star feel, like the smell of heat baked Texas dirt, and these songs are packed just as tight and solid as that earth. from the first cut to the last Deal sends you on sun-kissed, sage-scented, dusty trail journey of the state that Texans love to call home. Lloyd Maines placed his immeccable production touch upon this effort. Deal's music is intricately woven through the stories he tells.It draws you in and won't let you go. ---Cheryl Arthur

Review

...Deal turns a phrase like Shaver and details the sort of edgy characters that populate the songs of Steve Earle... -- Country Standard Time Magazine

You hear lots about musicians who style themselves as outlaws, that is just posing. You won't find that here. -- AustinAmericana.com

a strong songwriter who fleshes out his songs and characters with great detail and brings them to vivid life. -- TakeCountryBack.com

By Lee Armstrong HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 14, 2005
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"The Lawless" was produced by Lloyd Maines, father of Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines. He has played with Joe Ely & Uncle Tupelo and produced Jerry Jeff Walker. "The Lawless" is a rugged alt-country outing that friends of Chris Knight or Fred Eaglesmith will easily adopt. "Gideon" is a traditional country ballad about a girl who gets in trouble by a Bible-toting man. "You Ain't Nobody" is a straightforward country rocker. "Backslidin' Man" is a wide open toe tapper with Kevin blowing a mean harmonica. Kevin wrote all but three of the songs. On Max Stalling's "Freedom for Mary," Kevin takes a slower approach on this classic outlaw track. Al Kooper & Ronnie VanZant wrote "Mississippi Kid" that bounces joyfully in Kevin's country rock style. On "Lonesome Whistle Blow," a Hank Williams tune, Kevin gives a forlorn and blue reading, worthy of Hank. "The Lawless" may not be the most original formula for country outlaw rock, but it is a well-done decent effort. Enjoy!

Deal's fourth LP shows that he can turn a phrase like Billy Joe Shaver ("He's worn smooth as a buffalo nickel, he's rough as a prison tattoo"), and detail the sort of edgy characters that populate the songs of Charlie Robison and Steve Earle. Texas living seems to breed this sort of talent; perhaps it's the Shiner Bock.

With Lloyd Maines at the production board (and picking lap steel, banjo, baritone guitar and everything else that was stringed), Deal and his band cut an acoustic-electric sound across ten originals and three covers, mixing blues with their country roots. Freddie Spears provides a guest vocal on Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Mississippi Kid," tumbling along the country side on slide mandolin, dobro and harmonica. The dragging beat of Hank Williams' "Lonesome Whistle Blow" fully captures the lyrics' despair.

Like his labelmate, Max Stalling (whose own "Freedom for Mary" is included), Deal is a wordsmith with the experience of a life lived apart from music. His characters are fictional archetypes (e.g., outlaws, gamblers, truckers), grounded in the sort of every day detail that brings them alive, and rendered in music that is heartfelt and devoid of artifice.
