Danny Joe Brown Remastered CD

Casa de discuri: Plastic Head
THE SOUTHERN Rock hall of fame is decorated with some of
the finest voices in the music business; Ronnie Van Zant and Gregg
Allman being two fine examples. Equally as impressive is the immediate
and identifiable rasp of Danny Joe Brown, erstwhile vocalist for
Jacksonville based multi platinum rockers Molly Hatchet. Helmed by
Brown, Hatchet rocketed to success and then, just as they looked like
consolidating their burgeoning superstar status, Danny quit.
Opting to call his own shots he set about forming the Danny Joe Brown
Band, which like Hatchet featured a three guitar army, including
childhood friend Bobby Ingram. Snapped up by Epic Records, the band
we’re seconded at the world famous Compass Point studios in Nassau, with
veteran English producer Glynn Johns (The Faces, The Who, The Eagles,
Rolling Stones etc) recording their debut album.
The ‘DJB’ album is about as good a Southern Rock record as you will ever
hear. With impassioned vocals and copious lead guitar playing, the
songs are superior examples of a much maligned and now largely defunct
genre. Indeed, it houses two of the movement’s greatest signature
tracks; ‘The Alamo’ and ‘Edge Of Sundown’, the latter contains an
extended guitar showdown in the finest Southern Rock tradition.
24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4, 000 word story of the
making of the album written by Malcolm Dome, previously unpublished
photos, all spread out over a super 12 page full colour booklet.
