Don Nix - Hobos, Heroes And Street Corner Clowns (1973)

"Hobos, Heroes And Street Corner Clowns" is an excellent third album by Don Nix. Laid back, soft, mellow Southern Rock? Call it what you will. Just remember in 1973 musicians weren't much occupied by the thought on what Southern Rock should sound like. The good thing about that, is that it results in a creative approach to the music we all love so much. Don had his roots in Blues and Soul, and that's pretty much what you get here, albeit it with a definite Southern touch. Also some pretty slick arrangements on some of the mellower songs. Good stuff. Very good rip too (not mine, thanks to whoever did this ;-)). Hear that Black Cat Moan...

Hello Skydog, is it possible to upload this album with another host, because uploading.com doesn't work here.

Thank You

including the Alabma State Troupers.

That one is definitely southern rock with Furry Lewis and Jeannie Greene.

He is just good old southern rock like Mylon

I get the full file. Make sure you're not using the download accelerator, which is on by default (read carefully, untick the box).
