Charlie Daniels – Honey In the Rock (KSRS2071) (1973)

SAM_1608Proper shit-kickin’, good ol’ boy, a-pickin’ an’ a-grinnin’ Southern fried rock. And if I could think of a hunnert more corn pone, gerund-utilising-apostrophes descriptions, I would add them, too.

With a tip o’ the Stetson to the Allman Bros. (two drummers, a couple side-ending extended, jazzy jams), things get funky with more than a little help from an excellent bass guitarist. Daniels’ affected vocals resemble Dr. John’s, if not quite as rich in personality. This original Kama Sutra issue includes the shaggy dog novelty, “Uneasy Rider”, which gave the 1976 Epic re-release its title. I got Honey from Demelza in Hythe today for but a quid.

Some vandal has spray painted the word "fuck" on the side of the caboose. Appreciating the maturity level of musicians as I do, I expect this was the reason for its selection.

If you enlarge the picture above, you will see that some vandal has spray painted the word “fuck” on the side of the caboose ‘pon which the CDB stand. Appreciating the maturity level of musicians as I do, I expect this was the main reason for the photograph’s locus.

  1. I love the fact that you list this as “Country & Western”, as I do as well.

    • There are elements of Western Swing in this music (along with funk, hard rock, etc.) that makes C&W appropriate for the CDB.
