Listen:

‘From that day on, if I was going somewhere - I was running!’

This stunning instrumental regained its notoriety in one of the greatest films ever made, and is as perfect a musical rendition of the South as one is ever likely to hear.

“Rebel Rouser" is structurally based on the much loved gospel hymn, ‘The Saints’ - evidenced in Eddy’s stirring, soulful and hypnotic guitar sound. The song has a power to transport you to a land of porches and Spanish moss; or perhaps just a dirt driveway in Greenbow, Alabama.
