The Two Guns album "Balls Out" is the first and last album of a talented band that were unfortunately getting signed when Southern Rock made its last stand. Released by Capricorn Records, the label was three releases away from getting bankrupt. How's that for a healthy future? Well, obviously, these guys never had much of a chance and this is where it ended to the public eye. However, this Two Guns album is a bit of a Southern Rock classic. I find it rather hard to compare to any other band, since they definitely had a sound of their own. At times I hear similarities to The Charlie Daniels Band and Skynyrd. It's kind of heavy, but it's not dumb. Lots of interesting arrangements and fine playing. Nice vocals too. (Skydog's Elysium)

This is a fantastic southern rock album. The only release by Two Guns is a very tasteful album with very well written songs. This very rare album is a pleasure to listen to from start to finish. A great addition to anybodys collection. If you can find it... BUY IT...ENJOY IT! (amazon.com)

The story of Two Guns is interesting. The guitar player Bob Williams is my uncle (Dad's Brother). After meeting and marrying his first wife at Woodstock bob toured with Chubby Checker and later Two Guns was formed playing dives in and around our hometown Lawton, Oklahoma. When they got the record deal with Capricorn and recorded the album They got screwed and never got a dime for the album. Bob later cut off the end of one of his fingers working construction and gave up on his music career. He went on to a successful career as a commercial construction executive, but tragically died in a motorcycle accident outside Kansas City at the age of 44. He left his second wife Joanie and two daughters Rachel and Elizabeth. When you buy this album you are not supporting the band members in anyway. (comment on Skynfan's Guide to Rock 'n' Roll)

Interesting to find this info. Also from Lawton and heard them in different bands since Jr High in the 60's. Classmate of Pat in HS, Mike was a local bass legend in the Amber Bottle. Kenny and Bobby were also in rival bands from different parts of town. Followed them thru several iterations and last saw them at the Longbranch in OKC about '75 as they were working their way toward this final configuration. As stated, very talented and a testimony to the quality of the local bands. Last I heard, Pat and Mike ended up in Austin and imagine they are still involved in music.
