Joe Sun - Livin' On Honky Tonk Time (1980)



Joe Sun has made quite a few albums throughout the years, most of them very good. But he's not had the kind of success he should have, based on the quality of his work. The music is pretty much in league with the stalwarts of Outlaw Country music. And if, like me, you love Waylon Jennings and you already have everything released by Shooter Jennings, then this is where you should be. Also, for those of you that don't mind Country in Southern Rock and you don't mind taking it easy now and again, this is your chance to learn that not all Country music is shallow, slick and formulated. Joe's got a terrific voice, created some very tasteful albums, he rocks some and he just should be heard. So there!

Thanks for Joe Sun.Had this on vinyl a long time ago(probably still somewhere in the basement).
Had ,as far as I can remember ,two more Lp's of him but I liked this one the best.

Thank you for posting this album.Larry Jon Wilson's "Sojourner" would be another great choice.

Thansk Jenaclap for the link. And to Anonymous about Larry Jon Wilson: his albums are on my wishlist. Do you have a clean copy of Sojourner?
