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.

my Fantasy album of what a great southern band should sound like... from Fantasy Girl to Hold On Loosely.. this band rocked back in the day with Don Barnes and Donnie van Zandt and the original line up... not the Don Barnes ghost of a band that remains today... originally had a powerful double drummer sound and truly knew how to rock it.

My brother was taken into heaven at the early age of 38 yrs old. This was one of the hardest things that I have lived through. The song "Wild-Eyed Southern Boys", has always reminded me of him. So, when it came out from Sturgis (where his ashes are), still makes me smile when I hear it, because we always did silly stuff together. I have a lot of ink, and have both arms upper half sleeves. I took a break (haven't gotten anything for almost a year), but, I've drawn out my next one, for him and it does have this song on it. My right arm is pretty much about music, they are well done and have beautiful colors in them. I know what each of mine stand for, but, I don't have anyones' name on them. I'm old school and love having CD's. I'm going to do something with all of the cases, I just haven't decided what yet. ~~~ Have a great day/night, and I hope that this helps anyone who reads reviews~~~~

.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.

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.
