Midnight Wind

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Arriving between the trio of mid-'70s hits of "Uneasy Rider," "Long Haired Country Boy," and "The South's Gonna Do It," and the 1979 blockbuster "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," Midnight Wind is an overlooked title in the Charlie Daniels Band oeuvre, never appearing on CD until Raven released an expanded version called Midnight Wind...Plus in 2009.
