The Outlaws ' self-titled debut was released in , a few years after the Allman Brothers Band 's greatest glories and a couple of years before the untimely demise of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Outlaws latched onto their Southern heritage by way of Florida, threw in some harmony by way of the Eagles , and then wrote a number of songs that played to their strengths.
It's fun to hear cuts like "Song for You" and "Knoxville Girl," which never received a lot of radio play. Although "Green Grass and High Tides" has been played a million and six times on album-oriented rock stations, it nonetheless deserves mention.
Created in the tradition of the Allman Brothers Band 's "Dreams" and Lynyrd Skynyrd 's "Free Bird," the song still sounds fresh in the context of the album, and doesn't feel long at its nearly ten-minute length. It will leave the listener singing along and dreaming about the good ol' days.

They got the beat, though; the drums are for the most part live, and the warmth of an honest-to-God trap set gives BLO a big rhythmic thrust that sounds wonderfully natural, if a tad anachronistic.
Model Status Dear Kevin, As you may know, we have been developing the Model processor as a successor to the Model for quite some time. Unfortunately, we have some disappointing news. Given the length of time that many of you have been waiting for the Model we owe you an explanation as to what happened.
With progress on this product moving too slowly for all of us, we assigned Scott Jackson, our Sales Manager, to work directly with the factory in an effort to speed things up. Scott first visited the factory in January, and was able to resolve many issues.
With the success of the first trip, Scott anticipated accelerating the project through to completion during a second trip to China last month. Indeed, during this second visit great progress was made. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 was now fully working, the video and audio subsystems were fully functioning, the HDMI system had passed pre-certification testing, and the Model was ready to be submitted for formal approvals.
The factory's engineering department invited Scott to return again in July to help resolve the few remaining issues raised by our beta testers. At the last minute, Scott's return to Boston was delayed when the factory's management asked for additional time in order to share the results of a meeting that was just held with one of their largest customers.
As we soon learned, the purpose of this meeting was to address this customer's objection to the factory's decision to build products for companies that they considered "competitors.
For that reason, the factory did not view Outlaw as a direct competitor to this customer and therefore joined with Outlaw in the development of the Model During this meeting the factory's management informed Scott that this specific customer had made it clear, on a non-negotiable basis, that building either a receiver or processor for certain companies they perceived as competitors was "not acceptable.
To say that Scott, myself, and the rest of the Outlaws were stunned by this decision is an understatement. Over the last few weeks we have exhausted every avenue to find a path that would preserve the Model platform. These options included the possibility of purchasing the PCB layout files, firmware, and software from the factory in order to finish the development process and build this processor elsewhere.
Unfortunately, we were informed by the factory that such a transfer would not be possible. This is due in part to the nature of our agreements with the factory, as well as the intense pressure on the factory from this customer. For those of you who are Star Trek fans, this is our own "Kobayashi Maru" - a problem for which there is no known solution. We realize that this is not the first Outlaw product that hasn't made it to the market. As many of you may remember, we cancelled the Model processor once we realized that it would not work properly.
We realized that the Internet was the quickest, most direct way to reach our potential customers. It was a very long breakfast. On that day, we decided to form a new company and a new brand name, a company that would design and produce its own products and sell them only on the Internet.May 05, · Outlaw State of Mind Lyrics: Cut my teeth on daddy's old LGO / And I lost my mind somewhere in New Mexico / And TW put a snake on my back / I keep a redbone on my side / .
