Fans of the Outlaws better mark their calendars because long awaited new music is on its way! On Sept. 25, the band will release their first studio album in 18 years titled ‘It’s About Pride,’ on Rocket Science Ventures. ‘It’s About Pride’ is an album that the band spent four years making to give their fans exactly what they’ve come to expect from the hitmakers.

“Because the Outlaws have been out of the public eye for so long, it’s almost like starting over,” explains the band’s frontman, Henry Paul. “But because of the band’s history, we’re seeing this as a new chapter. We’ve written and recorded this album on our own terms, and we’re out to make a significant impression. What our fans loved then they still love now, because we are just as good or even better than we were. Most of all, they recognize the heart of what it is we still do.”

Luckily fans don’t have to wait until September for their first taste of what to expect. The Outlaws will be releasing the album’s first single, ‘Tomorrow’s Another Night,’ to radio on Aug. 20.

“This new album embodies all the things we shared musically and personally, as well as the relationships we have with our fans to this day,” says Outlaws drummer Monte Yoho. “It’s about where we’ve been, where we’re going, and why we still love to do this.”

Also coming up this year for the Outlaws is their involvement with the 2012 Simple Man Cruise on Norwegian Pearl along with Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Doobie Brothers, and many others. The ship is set to depart from Miami, Fla. on Oct. 27. Click here for more information on the cruise and to book your reservations.

The current Henry Paul led version leaves a bad taste in my mouth anyway. Not an expert on the Outlaws but Hughie (RIP) carried on the torch for many years before he joined Skynyrd and passed away too soon to see his new reformed Outlaws fully blossom. All that time there was no sign of Henry and now he's taking over the band to make a buck from the Outlaws name. He should have called it The Henry Paul Band.

I'll probably piss off some people, but ... First of all, yes, Hughie Thomasson was the Outlaws for all intents and purposes. And Hughie's wife sued (and lost) to block the Henry Paul led version that appeared within a year after his death and that is now claiming itself the official Outlaws. There are several people here on the ABB site that are very passionate in their opinions concerning this issue. One of the folks here was kind enough to send me a copy of Once An Outlaw, the last Outlaw record that Hughie made. It is incredible. And it is a huge shame that this record will probably never be heard.

However, that said ... 3 of the 4 people that recorded Once An Outlaw (minus Hughie obviously) are now in the Henry led Outlaws Band including Monte Yoho an origial Outlaw member from the beginning along with Henry. Second, the live shows that this band has been putting on are being very positively received. Here is a video of the "New" Outlaws performing the title track to the new Outlaw CD "It's About Pride."

http://www.tristudios.com/videos/its-about-pride-outlaws

This CD also includes versions (rerecorded I would assume) of at least two of the tunes from Once An Outlaw that the other members wrote, Chris Anderson and Randy Threet to be exact. So ... it still is an ugly situation for some here, but you would have to wonder what Hughie would want? Would it really be for the Outlaws and their music to die, only to exist in the fading memories of some of us old farts or ... would it be to continue for the foreseeable future with a whole lot the same intensity of the original band???

One thing for sure is that the Outlaws under Henry are going to continue and that alot of folks are probably going to enjoy them as well ... whether we like it or not.

That box set looks sweeeeeet!!!, The Hughie & Billy Jones era, The Florida guitar army era!
I intend on giving the "new" Outlaws a shot, I'll get the new disc and will most likely check them out when they come local on their upcoming tour, but it was and will always be Hughie's band. I know it got ugly and the courts sided with Henry's right to keep it going so he legally has the right to continue, but it seems sad to have such conflict.

I have been thinking a lot recently about the idea that we are at an unprecedented point in music history. Never before have recordings been so ubiquitous, not just in the audio/video sense but records of the lives of the musicians, interviews, pictures, books, etc.

Since the dawn of the technological age, since Edison's first recordings, Tesla's work, since photography, and the printing press made it possible to save actual images of artists, or paper copies of musical scores we have been able to disseminate and reproduce the music of our favorite writers and performers. through album covers and live concerts and recordings we have a sense of kinship with the performers who in the centuries before recordings were traveling minstrels or composers known only to a handful of people for a short time. What did Beethoven's 9th really sound like when he wrote it? What did that first performance sound like? what did the folk songs sound like, what were the first set of lyrics? We'll never know because the oral tradition is imperfect. The handwritten tradition is imperfect. Maybe some quarter notes should have been eighth notes. We have no recording to refer to. There is no video documentation of interviews or performances. Many biographies were written later, with the authors piecing together facts from disparate sources, sketchy memories, and embellished stories.

With video and audio recording and the wealth of magazine and news paper coverage of artists in the last 70-100 years the biographies are written as they go. Still not perfect, as even artists will contradict themselves and editors will shape articles to sell more papers but the source material is often there for us.

How has this changed our perception of a band and what the essence of a musical group really is? The traveling shows of yesteryear replaced performers often but did the same show regardless. Did the "fans" even know? when the minstrels left town and changed members did the music change? did the words change? When the Vienna Symphony Orchestra changed members did it still sound like Mozart? what was the perception in those times? Did those listeners just like hearing the familiar music? Did they care who was making it?

We have bands now that have been around for 50 years. they have changed members some have come and gone more than once, some bands have had a lot of continuity. Many have been plagued by death. The music is beyond the reach of death. Mozart has been dead for centuries but his music is still played, and not by any of the original guys in the orchestra. In modern times The Count Basie Band toured without him, keeping the music going. there are other examples of course too.

But do we perceive it differently because we have the recordings as reference? Because we saw the band live and it was the best show ever and can't be beat by three originals and some other highly talented musicians dedicated to reproducing and even expanding the experience. because we've read all the books and feel we know the bands? Do we have a deeper connection to the musicians we experienced first hand? To this day the Dickey/Warren lineup of the ABB is my favorite. I heard the originals first but saw the '92 lineup first and loved it.

150 years ago a traveling band could change a lead singer and few would notice. there was no radio playing "Oh Susannah" with the original 5 guys for 10 years and then all of a sudden a new guy shows up in the band singing it differently. Did the people even notice? Would they have cared? Music used to be communal and transferable. I learn from you, you learn from me, we sing songs, you might ad a verse, I might take one out. We change the arrangement, we add a fiddle, add some drums, etc. and a new song was born. Now those moments of creation are caught on tape, cast in stone so to speak for all eternity or until the servers go down. I still have my LPs though.

So to the issue of the Outlaws, is it the same band? no. Was one person solely responsible for the sound of the band? no. Does it matter? I don't know. Probably not. I personally would give it a listen and see if I like it then worry about how "authentic" it is. I have my favorite line-ups of bands too and as much as I wish Led Zeppelin kept going, I know in my heart they made the right decision.

How will this part of music history play out? 100 years from now will people be arguing about Keith Moon vs. Kenney Jones or will they just be happy that The Who are still touring even without any original members in the same way people still like to hear Tchaikovsky or Wagner or Miles Davis tributes. Will the future be full of tribute bands? Will original bands continue long after all the original members have gone? Will Molly Hatchet have a new album in the 22nd century? Maybe. They have beaten the odds so far.

If some guys from an original band or classic lineup want to call themselves by the band name and play the band's music and make new music in that style, why not use the band name. It adds continuity. A band is a collective. Changing membership is not the anomaly. that's why so few bands can be named that have kept all the original members or even all the members present on their first, all important debut album.

I still probably wouldn't go see Motorhead without Lemmy.

Just saw the Outlaws last Friday night. they were great. Lots of energy. Chris Anderson is a real talent. He played with Grinderswitch years ago, and has an excellent solo cd that came out in 1995 featuring Warren Haynes on two tracks, including Old Friend, which is in the Hittin' the Note CD. The new stuff they played was excellent. Billy Crain played his brother Tommy's guitar on Grey Ghost. Got a set list and they all signed it after the show. Very fan friendly, personable guys, all. I miss Henry and Billy. But it is great this group is still around.

It's a shame that the album recorded when Hughie was alive will never get released. The two songs from the that album that played live were fantastic.

Been listening to the box set this week. Slightly disappointed, but probably only because I have a lot of the live stuff on bootlegs already and at similar sound quality. The music is fantastic obviously tho' and there is some very interesting stuff on here although a few of the demos overlap with the recent Hughie Thomasson Demos/Outakes album. Nice booklet, although as one of my buddies said "the sleevenotes appear to have been written by Henry Pauls' manager" Also enjoying the aforementioned Hughie album. Cracking alternate version of "Take It Anyway You Want It" from the "Playin To Win" album. Wonder what politics were involved with the two camps and the rights to release the Demo/Outake material on both releases?
Anyway, for anyone who doesn't have much in the way of Outlaws bootlegs this will be a brilliant purchase.

Someone was nice enough to send me a burned copy of henry paul's "It's About Pride".

What a load of crap compared to Once an Outlaw.

henry wants to retell the whole Outlaws history for whoever will believe it.

He was not a founding member, he wasn't the glue that held the band together, he sure as hell wasn't "Mr. Outlaw".

He is a huge ego who who quit the band twice and was fired once.


Hughie may not have wanted the Outlaws music to die, but I'm sure he didn't want this phony to take Hughie's band make money off the name while giving nothing to Hughie's widow, the rightful owner of said name and music.

The box set look interesting, I might pick it up since I don't have much in the way of good quality live recordings of the band.

As for the album "Once An Outlaw", this is possibly the greatest Outlaw album I've heard, but sadly may never be released, which is a shame for fans who may never get to hear this. There's not a bad or mediocre song there. This record should be Hughie's legacy.
