309. "Long Haired Country Boy" by The Charlie Daniels Band

Continuing the posting of the newly mixed Thunderhill tracks from last summer, this one is, amazingly, the first Thunderhill track featuring a lead vocal by Rich Frush ever to be "released"! Rich played drums and sang harmonies on the two LPs the band cut in the late '70s, but he didn't really start singing lead on anything until after they were released. So there are no studio versions of this one, "Hard to Be Humble", "Old Time Rock & Roll" or the whole bunches of others he sang on. Hard to believe that this is the first time the general public will be able to get ahold of one, but it's true.

This is another unvarnished mix of the performance that day with no new overdubs and a minimum of editing. Rich really digs in on the vocal toward the end. It's a cool thing.

Rich Frush ~ Drums, lead vocal

Recorded by Heckman at the Honi Honi, Summer 2010
