Chain Lightning - Ain't Just Whistlin' Dixie (2000)

Posts are few and far between these days, I realize that. And it's not likely to change soon. But for those still following Skydog's Elysium, the wait pays off regularly. Like today. Every once in a while I get a gem like this thrown into my lap. Chain Lightning is yet another band that produced only one album, but what an album it is. 'Ain't Just Whistlin' Dixie' starts off sounding very similar to The Outlaws, but at their very best. Gradually the album shifts into rocking gear, eventually reminding you of all the greats in Southern Rock, like Doc Holliday or even Brothers Brooks. Thanks to Tom, who contacted Chain Lightning's leader Greg Lee on the possibility of posting this album here (which he allowed), we now have one of the better Southern Rock albums of the 2000's. The band only released this album, and their original singer, Chuck Worden, died in 2004. Since then, Greg has kept the band going, though no new material has surfaced (yet). Read the full story on their website. As for now: grab this, turn it up, enjoy! It's About Time.

Hey Skydog!
It's good to see you. Quality is always better than quantity bro. Blogging is often such a thankless task. You work and work and every once in a while, a comment. No money. The job is it's own expense. So, thank you for being there.
