On September 11, Goldenlane Records (a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records) will release OUTLAWS ANTHOLOGY: LIVE AND RARE (1973-1981).  This once-in-a-lifetime box set of live recordings and rate studio outtakes contains more than four hours of music from the definitive Southern Rock-Country hybrid band: Outlaws.

Formed in Tampa Florida in the late sixties, Outlaws’ big signature sound became fully realized in the early 1970s and the band was the first signed to Arista Records by Clive Davis. The self-titled1975 debut album reached #13 on the Billboard album chart, and featured “There Goes Another Love Song” and “Green Grass And High Tides.”  “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky” from GHOST RIDERS was a Top 40 hit single. 

ANTHOLOGY features “The Florida Guitar Army” – the infamous triple guitar assault of Hughie Thomasson (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Henry Paul (Blackhawk), and Billy Jones – which bridged a unique gap between country, rock, and even metal.  Frank O’Keefe was on bass, and Monte Yoho on drums. 

In addition to several unique versions of all the hits, ANTHOLOGY includes a full disc of demo recordings from early album sessions and eight previously unreleased songs.

OUTLAWS ANTHOLOGY: LIVE AND RARE (1973-1981) will be available at your favorite record stores and all online retailers.  MSRP for the 4-CD set is $41.98.
