I own the Goin' South set, as well as a few other
collections, but I always wanted to put together a really
good Southern Rock set for myself.  I've settled on a
two-disk set which includes the following tracks listed

Comments, critiques, etc always welcome!  Keep in mind, I
left off the more popular acts such as The Allman Bros,
Lynryd Skynyrd, Black Crowes, ZZ Top & 38 Special tunes
because I already own their greatest hits and didn't want
to be redundant. 

I am well aware many of these acts aren't actually from
the South.  I just like the songs and they kinda fit the

1. Polk Salad Annie - Tony Joe White
2. Almost Saturday Night - Dave Edmunds
3. My Maria - B.W. Stevenson
4. Amie - Pure Prairie League

7. Going Up The Country - Canned Heat
8. There Goes Another Love Song - The Outlaws
9. If You Want To Get To Heaven - Ozark Mountain Daredevils
10. Tuff Enuff - The Fabulous Thunderbirds
11. The Devil Went Down To Georgia - Charlie Daniels Band
12. Whiskey Man - Molly Hatchet
13. Don't Misunderstand Me - Rossington Collins Band
14. Keep On Smilin' - Wet Willie
15. Dixie Chicken - Little Feat
16. The South's Gonna Do It Again - Charlie Daniels Band
17. Two Lane Highway (Live) - Pure Prairie League
18. Johnny B. Goode (Live) - Johnny Winter
19. Ring Of Fire - Dick Dale
20. Move It On Over - George Thorogood

3. Fooled Around And Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop
4. Heard It In A Love Song - Marshall Tucker Band
5. Closer To Home - Grand Funk Railroad
6. Spooky - Atlanta Rhythm Section
7. Fall Of The Peacemakers - Molly Hatchet
8. Green Grass & High Tides - The Outlaws
9. Keep Your Hands To Yourself - Georgia Satellites

Thats a shame cause he still has that gift of Great
melodies, smart lyrics and John Lennon-meets-Elvis
singing style. The guy for years was trying to get a
major label deal but finally gave up and started
releasing CD's on indie labels. 

Dwight has released 3 Excllent albums in the past 4
years: "Tulsa" (on Copper Records), "Between The Cracks
- Volume 1" (a demos/rarities CD - from Not Lame). Last
year he released an album called "The Luck" (out on his
own label). Its an album he recorded for a major label
in 1990, but sat unreleased till now.

Now I just wish I could get my hands on CD copies of
"Twilley", "Scuba Divers" and "Jungle" - My vinyl copies
are showing thier age!

Billy Dont Mind :)

There's a lot of new Twilley material that came out
during the last two years. He released a new LP Tulsa
in '99. Last year he released The Luck  (an unreleased
CD produced by Richie Podolor). Not Lame Records
released Between the Cracks, a collection of 16
rartities & demos throughout his career. Plus there
were two bootlegs: The Rain, The Park & Twilley (with
live material & rarities) and Tulsa Girl. Tulsa Girl is
a must have. Twilley was selling cassette tapes of
unreleased material & demos on his website and some
enterprising bootlegger put them all on CD. Some great
material here including 4 track demos of material from
Sincerely like "You Were So Warm" and "Release Me".

Country sir:

As far as I know, there are only 8 (eight) cds available
of Twilleys material:

Twilley Band's first 2 original albums.  "Sincerely" and
"Dwight Twilley Band."  There are at least 2 versions of
each of these albums.  Both contain different bonus tracks.
For the uninitiated, The Dwight Twilley Band is Dwight and
the late Phil Seymour, both, on most instruments and
vocals. Because of the duos nasty record label problems,
even though both albums were quite fantastic, they were
not very successful.  The first album had an amazingly
catchy tune that people who were even remotely music
conscious in 1976, remember, but have no idea who performs
it... "...was it that Petty guy?"

"The Great Lost Twilley Album" is lotsa Twilley Band's
unreleased stuff. Most have vocals by Dwight and Phil. 
Great stuff... and 25 tracks.

Rock Yourself.  This is mentioned on Twilley's site... I
have never heard of it(?)

Between The Cracks - Volume One is more unreleased great

Dwight Twilley XXI is a best-of that spans Twilley's
fairly unsuccessful carrier.  It also contains tracks from
his albums that were never released on cd.

Tulsa.  It hasn't been my pleasure to have heard these
last two albums.

The Luck.  Newest album.  At this point mail order only.

Subject: More  Southern Rock

As someone who was on the radio in North Carolina in the
mid-70's, I recommend the following also:

Hydra - on Capricorn Records Winters Brothers Band - ATCO
Sea Level - on Capricorn Barefoot Jerry - Nashville group
also known as Area Code 615. Their albums have just been
re-released in Europe.

And related groups, though not  classic "Southern" ,

No its NOT. It was all done in Columbia Records Studio in
LA with "crowd" noise dubbed in later.

80% of the "live" LPs from the '60s were faked. Recording
in the field in those days wasnt considered even close to
what could be achieved in the studio, hench, the "fakes".

Here They Comes

Oops.. I guess the topic ment "simulated" audiance or

(Producer) Bruce Johnson brought in a audiance into
Columbia's studio and had the Raiders do thier live show
while the tape was rolling. Sounds like they had a great
time and the band sounds great, but to me "live in the
studio" isnt quite the same as live on a stage in a

Its a shame Columbia didnt have the Raiders do any live
recording in thier classic "65-67" era after Terry
Melcher "smoothed out" thier Northwest R&B-based frat
party band sound.

Har!  I know how you felt.  I kept warning my wife before
she watched it "don't imagine this is in any way a
depiction of reality" over and over until she shouted at
me to get out of the room and let her watch in peace.

My own favorite funny thing was the way Don Kirshner's
brain seemed to have been transplanted into Phil
Spector's body.  John Turturro sure LOOKED great, though,

Hi, UK Brian Wilson fans! It's nice to know I wasn't the
only one who felt as though he had a holy experience at
the concert. (My wife and I saw him at the "Pet Sounds"
tour two summers ago at PNC Arts Center in NJ, then
again there with Paul Simon. Less holy the second time,
more party-like, but still exquisite. (And Brian
actually stood up and played bass on "Surfer Girl!")

Re: rock movies, as many of us have noted, "That Thing
You Do" did it right for historical accuracy by
fictionalizing the most typical situations of 60's bands.
I wouldn't expect "Grace of my Heart" to be accurate any
more than "American Hot Wax," which was, in my opinion,
a not-very-good movie about a great subject that was
elevated by that very subject. Two things stood out in
that film for me. First was "Carole King" teaching
"Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers'" "her" song, "Why Do
Fools Fall In Love." Sure the history was way off base,
but I remember singing in ad hoc doo-wop groups at the
time and working out arrangements in just that way; the
truthful experience shown sent chills down my back.

The second thing was a scene in a stand-in radio station
for WINS, allegedly based on fact, but I may have
smoothed it into my own retelling; nonetheless, it has
been a watchword of my personal communications faith
ever since the flick came out: Alan Freed is in the
studio with the monitor cranked up to 11. His engineer
hits the squawkbox and says, "Alan, how can you stand
that teenage crap over and over again at high volume?"
And Freed says, "Because - they can tell when you're not
listening." Amen, Alan, wherever you are; whatever I do,
I've always strived to never be caught not listening!

Yes, I'd prefer historical accuracy, but not at the
expense of the "real" truth. And whether or not he
really said it, that line is about as true as it gets!
(29 years of commercial radio proved it to me over and

One more question on the Joys "I Still Love Him" (Mick,
maybe you can help): what are they singing in the
refrain: "But I still love him, I still love my
__________". It sounds like the word in the blank is
"Angelo." but probably not since the group responds,
"Don't you know she loves you, Joe?" (This question
definitely falls into the "'Scuse me while I kiss this
guy" category!)

I hope I left everyone far fewer typos this time!

More later,
Country Paul
