Doc Holliday (CD)
DURING THE 1970's, the glorious Sunshine State of Georgia had been a fertile breeding ground for home grown Southern Rock, nurturing, amongst others, the Allman Brothers Band, Grinderswitch and the Atlanta Rhythm Section. Doc Holliday, although not universally as well known as those big selling, stubble sporting whiskey soaked troubadours, were an important and highly valued addition to that linage of respected and revered musicians.
Developing a reputation as one of the hottest acts on what was affectionately termed the chittlin' club circuit Doc Holliday - or Roundhouse as they were then known - eventually captured the ears of various power players in the record business. Wined and dined by cigar chomping executives at A&M Records they were eventually signed to a major contract in 1980. Introduced to renowned English record producer 'Colonel' Tom Allom (Judas Priest, Strawbs, Nantucket) the coupling appeared an unlikely marriage, but the natural bonhomie of both parties proved hugely infectious, helping to create one of the most impressive debut albums from a Southern Rock band since the early days of the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 2 bonus tracks, 4,000 word story of the making of the album by Derek Oliver, previously unpublished photos, all spread out over a super 16 page full colour booklet.
