Henry Paul Band "Grey Ghost" and "Live From The Bayou in DC 1979"

Combined in one zip file is Henry Paul Band "Grey Ghost" LP and "Live From The Bayou in DC 1979" Bootleg CD. The Grey Ghost LP is a vinyl rip from me and the Live at the Bayou is a CD I got from e-bay several years back.

In 1972 the Outlaws were still just a small local 4 piece band that toured for about 8 months. Then in 1973, Billy Jones, joined the group and the Outlaws were complete. They tour the local club scene until the spring of 1975 when Arista Records president Clive Davis signs them to their first record deal. In March of 1975 the group released their first self titled album "Outlaws". On the album Henry does lead on 3 of the more countryish songs including "Knoxville Girl" among others. The next year they released their follow-up album "Lady In Waiting" in which Henry did lead vocals on 3 more songs. Then in August of 1977 after the release of their third album "Hurry Sundown", Henry left the band to start a solo career.
Soon after he left the Outlaws, the Henry Paul Band is signed to a four record deal with Atlantic. Their debut album's title track "Grey Ghost" is unofficially dedicated to Lynyrd Skynrd's lead singer Ronnie Van Zant who had died in a plane crash in 1977. In 1980, Monte Yoho leaves the Outlaws and joins the Henry Paul Band for their second album called "Feel The Heat" which has a much harder edge than their previous debut album which was much more southern rock. It's on the second album in which the band had their biggest hit "Longshot" (which by the way does not have Henry doing lead vocals). Monte then leaves the group, and in 1981 they released their third album "Anytime". This album has a mixture of almost every type of music; from the rock songs like "Hollywood Paradise" to the pop songs like the cover of the old Van Morrison song "Brown Eyed Girl" to the country sounding "Distant Riders". The last album put out by the band was the self titled album "Henry Paul" in 1982, but unfortunately it receives very little air play.
After the Henry Paul Band breaks up, Henry reunites with Hughie Thomasson in 1986 and they release the Outlaws reunion album "Soldiers Of Fortune". The tour to promote the album is rather unsuccessful; they are unable to fill the arenas. This is the beginning of the end for the Outlaws. Henry leaves in 1989, however they continue to tour until 1996 when the band breaks up completely and Hughie joins Lynyrd Skynrd as a lead guitarist.

Just found your site and this download of The Henry Paul Band brings back some great memories for me. I saw them twice on this tour opening for the Allman Brothers in Lakeland, and The Atlanta Rhythem Section at the Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa, Florida. They were red hot both times and also when I saw them open for the Stones in Orlando two years later. Henry is flying the flag for the current edition of The Outlaws line up these days. Thanks for all of the cool stuff and the other links.

Thanks for the cool feedback Robbo!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
