Another timely CD Re-issue & a better demonstration of Southern Rock at it's best is hard to find. Style wise this is more of a cross between Johnny's brothers bands Skynyrd & .38 Special & is definately another Trophy to add to the family cabinet. 'Standing In The Darkness' is another Southern Rock classic that stands proudly along side Skynyrd's 'Freebird', Blackfoot's 'Highway Song', Hatchet's 'Boogie No More' & 'Fall Of The Peacemakers' & Doc Hollidays 'Southern Man'.

.... 'Never Too Late', 'Stand Your Ground', 'Hard Luck Story' & the title track are all excellent too, with the cover of Wilson Pickett's '634-5789' being only the slightly weak link. Let's hope that the next 2 releases 'Round 2' & 'Last Of The Wild Ones' also make their deserved CD debuts.

super class first solo effort from mr johnny van zant.thanx to rockcandy for this superb southern reissue!!!.only one filler track 3 (a cover).the rest is really excellent.on track 4 "put my trust in you" the guitars sound exctly like doc holliday!we have the feeling that the master bruce brookshire plays on this song.the production is perfect thumbs up to al kooper the legendary lynyrd skynyrd productor .the second and third record "round two" and "the last of the wild ones" are reissue by rockcandy (thanx again) this year in 2012.

the more southern of the three.this record is a lesson of fine,dynamic and irresistible southern rock.

A good album with some nice cuts in the shape of,for example, tracks "Put My Trust In You" & "Hard Luck Story"...a classic Southern Rock singer that is Mr Jhonny Van Zant for sure.80/100
