Total Time:

Группа ''Stillwater'' просуществовала с 1973
по 1983-й и базировалась в Warner Robins, Georgia. Stillwater выпустили два альбома на Capricorn Records и прекратили свою деятельность после ухода с лейбла. В активе группы также много гастрольных туров, в том числе с Atlanta Rhythm Section и Тhe Charlie Daniels Band. В 1998 году материал, так и не выпущенного в 1983 году альбома был доработан и выпущен под названием Runnin' Free. Это не те выдуманные Stillwater, история которых изображена в фильме "Почти знаменит"(Almost Famous) Камерона Кроу 2000 го года .

Best Track: "Fair Warning." This song is exactly what bands like the Drive-By Truckers are going for these days. It's a brand of rock that reeks of swamp gas and stale beer. Stillwater even uses three guitarists, just like the Truckers.
This song features a bluesy piano and a snappy bassline to go with its noodling guitar solos. The lyrics tell a story about a girl named Foxy Lucy who likes to cheat on her boyfriend, Jo Bob Jenkins (See what I mean about the Lynyrd Skynyrd?). The "Fair Warning" is that while Foxy Lucy's "Short shorts and halter tops" are enticing, it's best to stay away because Jo Bob "totes a switchblade knife."
It ends with this clever little twist: "Jo Bob will catch you by surprise/and cut you down to size/he's fool enough to do it/I know it for a fact/there ain't no maybe to it/I've got the scars to prove it."

Worst Track: "I Reserve the Right." Equal parts Foreigner and Van Halen, this is something the boys in Detroit Rock City would get down to. It has an endless, soaring guitar solo and cheesy rebellious lyrics like this: "Last night I got loose as a goose/got high/got tacky/drank all they had, broke all the rules/blew by cool/acted wacky."
