"Southern Rock groups have captured the imaginations of millions of diehard rock and roll fans with their charismatic, hard-driving musical rebellion. The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Charlie Daniels Band, Wet Willie, The Outlaws, 38 Special, Grinderswitch, Blackfoot ... all have knocked the music world off its feet with soulful, primal rhythm anthems to good times, hard times, wild living, romance, heartbreak, stoic independence, and gentle Southern landscapes. The bands offer honest glimpses into the human psyche in a style so unique that you're compelled to listen and to surrender to whatever emotion they're trying to evoke. And the down and dirty throb of the bass, virtuoso slide guitars, and the complex drumbeat defy the boredom of the nine-to-five world and propel you through the joys and mysteries of Saturday night in Dixie."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
