            Drive-By Truckers indeed
            Man that song is the 70s legend.. the legend also being that Lowell got booted by Frank Z. because of it, with various interpretations, see the Wikipedia article.

                  I like Jackson Browne as well.

                      LITTLE FEAT: ANY album but especially the extended version of Waiting for Columbus (one of the great live albums ever,if you can get the extended CD the bonus tracks are almost even better than the original material).

                      LOL,by the way,I was AT the Lisner Auditorium shows listed on the record. Lisner is George Washington University,Washington DC and in 1977 Feat had a huge following in the Mid-Atlantic. One of my favorite bands of all-time.

                      ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND: Studio albums you can't go wrong with the first record,Idlewild South,Eat a Peach (live and studio mix) and Brothers and Sisters. The must have Allman Brothers disc though is Live at the Fillmore East---again one of the greatest live albums ever. (The extended CD of this is easier to find and is just straight up unbelievable. Just having the seamless transition from Whipping Post to Mountain Jam is worth the price alone. Originally Whipping Post was on Live at the Fillmore and the live cut of Mountain Jam was stuck on Eat a Peach.)

                      LYNYRD SKYNYRD: Not obscure in the least,but come on,this many posts in and NO ONE has said Skynyrd yet?

                      Shameful.

                      Anything from them,just so long as it's BEFORE the plane crash (1977) and you can't go wrong.

                      Some I'll be less detailed on (hit and miss with these artists---they had their moments,but some real dreck as well.I'll list some highlights...).

                      The Outlaws---Green Grass and High Tides,Ghostriders in the Sky

                      Blackfoot---Train,Train and Highway Song

                      Atlanta Rhythm Section---Imaginary Lovers

                      Molly Hatchet---Flirtin' with Disaster



                      STEVIE RAY VAUGHN: It's more blues but the southern rock and the boogie-woogie shuffle is all in there to. Man I miss this cat. Gets clean,starts playing at a whole new level,dies in a helicopter crash. Sad.

                      Texas Flood,Couldn't Stand the Weather and Live Alive are the best.

                      BONNIE RAITT: Gotta have the ladies repped by Bonnie. She's just so legit that she was always bigger with musicians than with the public at large. I usually don't prop compilation albums but Collection is a must have.

                      More contemporary but great bands...

                      Government Mule: The Mule is da chit. You literally cannot go wrong with anything with the Mule label on it.

                      Derek Trucks Band/Susan Tedeschi/Tedeschi Trucks Band: Husband and wife team that formed their two great bands into one and have just kept that southern rock-blues vibe going with touches of an even deeper musical vocabulary mixed in.

                        "If you give me weed,whites and wine And you show me a sign... Then I'll be Willin,to be moving" Love it. Here's one of my favorite Lowell George lyrics,from Rock and Roll Doctor... "It's just a country town,but patients come From Mobile to Moline from miles around Nagodoches to New Orleans In beat-up old cars and in limousines To meet the doctor of soul He's got his very own thing Two degrees in be-bop,a Ph.D. in swing He's the master of rhythm He's the rock 'n roll king" Kills me every time. umbup:

                          Hear hear

                          Lynyrd Skynyrd
                          I didn't mention them, but only because Cookies mentioned truckers, so Willin'...

                          Allman Brothers, I just quoted, they're top of my repertoire anyway...

                          ... and on the rest I can only agree.
                          Southern music does it for me.
