Mylon LeFevre - Love Rustler (1978)

Well, I'm gona make some people happy again. It's the second to last secular recording of Mylon LeFevre. Yes, while he was still his evil alter ego self, and this time apparently lost in the discotheque as well. But don't you worry, cause it's still well worth your time. That is, unless you're the kind of Southern Rock fan that can't grasp anything beyond Skynyrd and Hatchett. But then you wouldn't be here in the first place, now would you?
On this album Mylon gives it another shot at some slick Southern Rock/Pop, with a handful of tasteful covers. Like Le Roux's "Keep The Fire Burning" and Mac Gayden's "Someone Whispered". You can just imagine the hand claps. More rocking out on Kerry Livgren's "Another Slant", and Kerry's also helping out on guitar duties. All in all a logical successor to "Weak At The Knees", and a very nice one at that. Next month I'll be posting Mylon's last musical sin (though that might depend on how you look at it...), "Rock & Roll Resurrection". But until then, groove to this.

Thanks for this. Can't wait for "Rock & Roll Resurrection," which I've been trying to track down for some time.

Awesome share, Skydog! Many thanks!

By the way - i just uploaded the rare BORDERLINE - southern rock album feat. Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody. Check it out and if you like it, then post it here at your blog:

Borderline was the short-lived project of Germans leading southern rock musician Georg Bayer. After having much trouble with his own and original band "Lizard", he formed this project to fullfill his record contract. Borderline was a southern rock quartett with as bunch of guest musicians, amongst others Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden (ex-Whitesanke).
The last four tracks of this albums are bonus tracks, whick are not to find on the original album (recorded in Stuttgart/Germany & Atlanta/Georgia).
You can hear finest southern rock from Germany and Georg Bayer knows how to boogie ... he learnt his lessons on the road and his cover versions are very pretty, too.
