Details

Special Deluxe Collector's Edition / Fully Remastered Audio / One of the best 'lost' Southern Rock albums. Includes Mindbender and the guitar blazing Sam's Jam / Two bonus tracks / 12-page full colour booklet 4,000 word essay, new interview, enhanced artwork, and rarely seen photos. We here at Rock Candy have an abiding respect for Southern Rock bands, and none more so than Stillwater. An impressive seven piece, hailing from Macon Georgia, the band first arrived on our radar back in the seventies when they were filmed by the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test programme playing in a local club as part of Capricorn record's annual picnic. The track shown was Sam's Jam a masterful guitar-drenched epic that sent a shock wave through the ranks of Southern Rock aficionados. Some of us have yet to recover from that programme. Formed in the early seventies and featuring a classic three man guitar line up, the band courted much attention eventually signing with the Macon-based Capricorn label, home to The Allman Brothers Band and Wet Willie, amongst many others. It was a fitting pairing, with the band attracting much attention, earning strong praise and delivering one of the finest albums of the period. Paired with Buddy Buie, songwriter and producer for the Atlanta Rhythm Section the band recorded their album at the legendary Studio One facility in Doraville. Issued in 1977, the record contains a clutch of superb songs, including Rock 'N' Roll Loser , Out On A Limb and Mindbender a single (featuring the use of a Talk Box) that reached the US top 50 chart. Naturally, the album also features the near ten minute centrepiece 'Sam's Jam', showcasing a blazing guitar showdown in the finest Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers tradition. Frankly, it doesn't get much better than this.
