Description

Two of John Gellman's classic 1 black and white photographs of The Outlaws, taken in late 1974 in a field outside Athens, Georgia, while the band was in town for a week playing a club called Between The Hedges. The first photograph features all five members wearing cowboy hats. From left to right, the photograph features drummer Monte Yoho, bassist Harvey Dalton Arnold, guitarist Hughie Thomasson, guitarist/keyboardist Billy Jones, and guitarist Henry Paul. From left to right, the second photograph features Jones, Thomasson, Paul, Arnold and Yoho.

Formed in Tampa, Florida, in 1967 by guitarist and lead vocalist, Hugh "Hughie" Edward Thomasson, Jr., The Outlaws peaked in popularity in the mid-to-late 1970s, with hits such as "Green Grass and High Tides," "There Goes Another Love Song," and "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky." Known by fans as "The Florida Guitar Army," the band's three-part harmonies distinguished them from their Southern rock contemporaries. The band experienced more personnel changes than most musical groups, with at least 45 different members between 1967 and 2015.
