Three CD set. Singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Steve Young (1942-2016) was a pioneer of "country rock" and of "outlaw country," two movements that transformed mainstream country music and impacted other genres of American popular music. Young, a Southerner, recorded more than a dozen distinctive albums, but none was more fully realized than his 1975 album Honky-Tonk Man. Recorded at the acclaimed Minneapolis studio Sound 80 and released by Mountain Railroad Records, a small independent label based in the Upper Midwest, Honky-Tonk Man documented the musical world of a complex if largely misunderstood artist during the peak of his powers. Now, Honky-Tonk Man returns (also available in it's original form on vinyl for the first time in three decades) as part of Stars In The Southern Sky - a 3-CD/Digital collection highlighting that monumental 1975 era. Packaged in a slipcase, featuring a 40 page booklet with rare photos and new liner notes from Honky-Tonk Man Producer Stephen Powers and Ted Olson (who both oversaw the set.) The whopping 47-track set contains Honky-Tonk Man, "Stanley And Henry" (Young's collaboration with Jim Post from Post's 1978 I Love My Life album) and 34 previously unissued live tracks including standards and original material including Young's classic "Seven Bridges Road" (a 1980 hit for the Eagles using Iain Matthews' Michael Nesmith produced version as a template, and also covered by Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Rita Coolidge and more.) So, revisit the origins of Country Rock, Outlaw Country, and Americana. Sit back and enjoy the Stars In The Southern Sky!
