    Default The drivin n cryin And Friends Thread

    drivin n cryin is a great band with a long history.

    Praised, scorned, applauded and ignored, they deserve a thread here.

    They found me in 1987, and I've tagged along ever since.

    These guys were great! "Mystery Road" simply did not leave my in-dash for nearly a year back in '89 or so. "Honeysuckle Blue" still is one of the best tunes ever written for cranking when you are happy or sad, drunk or drunker.

    Sucks that you can't find their early releases. I'd love to find another copy of that album (I originally had it on cassette).

    A much welcomed and long deserving thread for a band too few know about.

    Default "So fly me . . .

    Courageous!" Don't know much about them, but I liked that song enough to buy the CD.

    "We eventually started playing clubs, and we also did weddings. We played everything from the Ohio Players to K.C. & the Sunshine Band. You would love the sight of Van Halen doing 'Get Down Tonight'! But by the third set when everybody was good and tanked up--boy, we'd be blazin'!" -Michael Anthony

    Kevn Kinney is still around doing a mix of new stuff and old DnC tunes (http://www.kevnkinney.com/ - check out the song Welcome to the Suntangled Angel Revival).

    Think he's still pretty swamped in GA, and maybe even Western NC, but in Raleigh he's always happy to hang out and talk for a minute - I actually did just that about 3 weeks ago.

    Lots of his solos stuff can be grabbed for free at archive.org. They ask that you not burn CDs from the mp3s.

    Mystery Road


    If your attention span is put to the test when you listen to an entire album by one artist or band, then give Mystery Road a try. From the countrified opener, "Ain't It Strange," through the folk-intoned "With the People," to the straight-out rocker "Syllables," drivin' n' cryin's third album displays a range that will have you checking the liner notes to make sure it's the same band.

    Kevn Kinney is founder, vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for this combo from Atlanta, and his voice can soothe you, as on "Peacemaker," without giving you any warning of the merciless snarling to come on "You Don't Know Me." Kinney's lyrics are occasionally naive, but somehow he avoids becoming clichéd. On the beautiful "Honeysuckle Blue," Kinney has written a lilting sing-along of escape from the mean streets of the city; "Straight to Hell" is a strangely comical character study of a young man coming of age. As eclectic as it is impressive, Mystery Road is no dead-end street. (RS 553)

    Well then, that pretty much in and of itself displays not only your intelligence, yet your taste and fine good sense as well.

    Good for you, "Oh Thrifty-One".

    Hey, while you are at it, why not post your dissatisfaction with the other 25 bands in their respective threads, Mr. Garage-Sale?

    Your parade? Did you or did you not post in a thread devoted to DnC and describe them as "awful"?

    Now these guys are just fantastic. Honeysuckle Blue is one of the best songs ever, in my opinion. Fly Me Courageous and Mystery Road are two staples in my collection. When I lived out in Charleston, SC, years ago, I got into these guys but I've never had the chance to see them play.

    I play those albums for anyone that will sit still long enough to listen. Been pushing DnC on the masses for a long time! lol.

    D-N-C used to have a cool, hand made fan club news letter. They would send you postcards and stickers throughout the year also.

    I've got a folder full of it somewhere, that I'll try to find.
