Stagger Lee will always a good ol' Southern boy, no matter how hard New York City tries to change him. He still loves spicy food, Dixie Whiskey, Southern women, grits, gumbo and crawfish etoufee.
Sells Drugs To Children pulls no punches. It's Stagger Lee in his most vulnerable, most honest moments. In "One More Drink" and "Heart Of Dixieland," he admits the regret he feels for never returning to the South.
A Cajun/Zydeco influence is injected into "Louisiana Hayride," a fun track about an ill-fated trip to Shreveport, Louisiana. And even a little Johnny Cash seeps its way into "Annabelle Moreno," a bitter murder ballad featuring NNMaddox on flute!
Lee takes celebrating his heritage a step further with his rendition of the classic Southern song, "Oh, I'm A Good Old Rebel." His updated take on the angry Reconstruction-era soldier's song makes for a chilling experience that is rarely seen or heard in music today.
Stagger might be a big man in a small frame, but he shows you who is boss in "Where I Draw The Line." The song manages to be laidback and aggressive all in one.
When all is said and done, Sells Drugs To Children reminds music fans from all walks of life that honesty, passion and intensity are the necessary ingredients for a legendary album.
"Stagger Lee, please don't take my life. I got three young children and a very sickly wife."
But Stagger Lee shot Billy. Oh, he shot that boy so hard.
