 Charlie Daniels : Charlie Daniels - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
When Charlie Daniels released his eponymous debut in 1970, Southern rock was in its nascent stages.
Daniels simply wails on his guitar here, most notably on the six-minute closer "Thirty Nine Miles from Mobile," but, apart from the ballads, he doesn't miss a chance to solo.
The heavy guitars give Charlie Daniels a real rock feel, and that vibe is continued through the loose rhythm section and a strong dose of counterculture humor, heard strongest on "The Pope and the Dope." That song also shows signs of Daniels' redneck sensibilities, which also surface in unpredictable ways throughout this wild, woolly album.
