The Randall Hall Band - The Randall Hall Band (2004)

The Randall Hall Band features Randall Hall (duh), formerly of the Allen Collins Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Jimmy Dougherty, previously singer for both Alias and the Allen Collins Band. This 2004 release is musically very reminiscent (not in the last place due to Jimmy's singing) to the Allen Collins Band. It's an EP which has three really nice songs on it. "Trust" and "Square Peg" were new songs at the time this came out. The last, "Just Trouble", was the opening song of the Allen Collins Band album, "Here, There & Back" (now out of print). This time without the horns but still very good. The Randall Hall Band website is still online, but it hasn't been updated since 2004. Which is too bad, cause this is the kind of music I would love to have more of. Good stuff.
