Father of country

This master of country needs to be listened to more by people. This guy is listened to less than the annoying Jonas Bros. Mow that's a shame.

Country -- NOT!

Ya gotta LOVE this album. I don't care much for modern country music, but this kind of country (southern? rockabilly? rebel?) is simply classic! Charlie D rocks! 'Uneasy Rider' is still a hoot after 35 years—regardless of whether you side with the ‘hippies,’ the ‘rednecks’ or the ‘commies!’ ‘Still in Saigon’ may stem from the Vietnam War, but its message is eerily familiar in today’s political arena while ‘Simple Man’ strikes a visceral note now just as it did back in the ‘70s. (Just ignore the annoying religious references if they bother ya—the music’s subject matter is still incredibly moving.) Religion aside, how can anyone not get riled up when ya hear 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia.’ TDWDTG is a song that everyone must hear at least once in their lifetime— that fiddle is so hot you can smell the fire and brimstone! Plus, if ya wanna ‘get’ some of the modern day references—Futurama, SNL, Squidbillies & Robot Chicken have all parodied the song—you need to hear the original Charlie version. Rappers, Bluesmen, punkers, rockers—home grown and foreign have recorded covers of this devilish tune. Oh, and as others have mentioned, ya better get to know the licks if ya wanna blaze through Guitar Hero III...TDWDTG is a BOSS song that shows up when you battle for your soul! Want something ‘new’ to turn on to? Ignore the fact that this album gets dumped into the country music category and check out some of its tracks! Ya just might find out what ‘rosin up your bow’ means…. lol.
