Two Guns - Balls Out (1979)



The Two Guns album "Balls Out" is the first and last album of a talented band that were unfortunately getting signed when Southern Rock made its last stand. Released by Capricorn Records, the label was three releases away from getting bankrupt. How's that for a healthy future?Well, obviously, these guys never had much of a chance and this is where it ended to the public eye.
However, this Two Guns album is a bit of a Southern Rock classic. I find it rather hard to compare to any other band, since they definitely had a sound of their own. At times I hear similarities to The Charlie Daniels Band and Skynyrd. It's kind of heavy, but it's not dumb. Lots of interesting arrangements and fine playing. Nice vocals too. You may have seen this around already, but if you haven't picked it up yet... Balls out!
