After hitting the top 10 twice with "You're Only Lonely" and his duet with James Taylor, "Her Town Too," JD Souther released his only album of the '80's and his last solo effort for two decades – 1984's Home By Dawn, produced by David Malloy (Eddie Rabbit, Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire). As Souther took distinctive creative turns with each release, Home By Dawn emerged at the beginning of the new wave of country music. In fact, legendary producer/engineer, and David's father, Jim Malloy (Townes Van Zandt, Eddy Arnold, Sammi Smith) told Souther, "You were about 15 minutes ahead of your time!" That timing was confirmed when Dixie Chicks covered "I'll Take Care Of You" on their 12x Platinum Wide Open Spaces. From rock to roots-rock to rockabilly, Home By Dawn took Souther in a direction reflecting his Texas upbringing and has proven to be an important and influential album, indeed released before its time. Now is the perfect time to discover, or rediscover it. 180g vinyl pressing with original LP packaging including printed inner sleeve with lyrics.
