Outlaws (Outlaws album)

Outlaws is the debut studio album by American southern rock band Outlaws, released in 1975. The album is known for the rock classic "Green Grass & High Tides", which is considered by many to be one of the greatest guitar songs, plus the hit single "There Goes Another Love Song". A cover version of "Green Grass & High Tides" appears as a playable song in the video game Rock Band.

Drawing influences from southern rock bands The Allman Brothers & Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as folk rock and country rock bands such as The Byrds, Poco, Eagles, and New Riders of the Purple Sage, the band developed a unique, hard-driving country rock sound, due in part to the quick pickin' quasi-country style guitar playing of Hughie Thomasson, coupled with their use of three and four part harmonies. They even incorporated elements of bluegrass on the album.

The album was also the first produced by a Southern rock band, to feature three front men. Thomasson, Henry Paul, and Bill Jones, all wrote and provided lead vocals. Paul's vocals and his self penned "Song in the Breeze", "Stay with Me" and "Knoxville Girl" brought the strong country flavor to the album, while Billy Jones teamed with Thomasson for the dueling Southern rock guitar sound.

The album, with its blend of Southern rock, country rock, hard rock, was well received by critics, and also helped the band become a huge concert draw. It peaked at #13 on the billboard 200.
