And that pretty much sums up the difference with Fire on the Mountain -- here, Charlie Daniels and his band have fused their Southern-fried country to a rollicking, jam-intensive blues-rock, where it plays like rock but feels like redneck country. It's a rather brilliant move, because it's every bit as jam-oriented as Capricorn bands like the Alllmans or the Marshall Tucker Band the latter are thanked in the liner notes, while Dickey Betts of the former cameos on this record , but the CDB have yet to give themselves over to playing for the sake of playing which they soon would with Saddle Tramp.
