Classic Rock on MV / YouTube
Outlaws became one of America’s most beloved rock bands that makes use of southern and country rock for most of their songs. In the mid-70s, they received their high-end success coming from their hits “There Goes Another Love,” and “Green Grass and High Tides,” an extended jam.
“There Goes Another Love Song” is written by Hughie Thomasson and Monte Yoho, and it came to be the band’s highest-charting single, peaking at no. 34. Albeit not exactly a high spot, it established their careers on steady flow, giving them opportunities to be an opening act to bigger rock bands like the Who, Rolling Stones, Queen, and Van Halen.
And when the song is performed live, you’d knew exactly how it’ll turn out: charismatic and energizing.
Back in 1978, the Outlaws were given an opportunity to perform a 13-song set concert in Capitol Theatre, courtesy of Bill Graham. There, at the 11th song mark, is their famous track, performed by Hughie Thomasson and Billy Jones, together with their classic 70s line-up.
