Recording information: Nashville (1979-1980).

Hux's 2012 two-fer pairs Alabama's first two albums: 1980's My Home's in Alabama and its 1981 successor, Feels So Right. Both are clean, assured articulations of Alabama's streamlined outlaw country-rock, a variation where the hooks are bigger and poppier than the gutsy rock version of the '70s. My Home's in Alabama had hits in its title track and "Tennessee River," and Feels So Right, which feels more cohesive than the debut, had "Feels So Right," "Love in the First Degree," and "Old Flame." Not too long after these albums the hits started to get bigger for Alabama, but the roots of the band's success are readily apparent here on this fine two-fer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
