Recorded with Muscle Shoals studio musicians in 1984, the album was never distributed due to some trouble with the law resulting in the confiscation of most of the 500 copies originally pressed. These recordings find Blaze Foley in a rare studio setting performing ten of his well-known compositions including the apparently timeless resistance song, Oval Room, originally written with Ronald Reagan in mind. The outstanding production values and musicianship breathe fresh air into these classic Blaze compositions  . Titel: Lost Muscle Shoals Recordings. Label: End Of An Ear.

March 1983: Blaze heads to Muscle Shoals to finally record his first album, an opportunity that had come through Georgia connections. A previous attempt to record, under the auspices of hapless record producers from Houston, had resulted in a set of master tapes that were ultimately stolen from Blaze's station wagon and probably ended up in a dumpster somewhere. Fortunately, Lost Art Records recently remastered the recording. It's beautifully balanced, and Blaze's voice shines through. The original album Blaze Foley was recorded, pressed, and never released in the Eighties. Instead, the executive producer was indicted on drug charges and, according to Blaze, the albums ended up in the hands of the FBI, through no fault of Townes I might add. "I hope they listen to it," Townes concluded to Larry Monroe.

Blaze Foley, born as Michael David Fuller in 1949, was a country musician from Arkansas. His stage name was inspired by Red Foley, one of the biggest names of his time. Blaze was a close friend to Townes van Zandt. Foley’s If I Could Only Fly became a hit when covered by Merle Haggard, and John Prine’s version of Clay Pigeons was on his Grammy Award winning album Fair and Square. Blaze was known as the Duct Tape Messiah, because he used wear duct tape on the tips of his boots and later on, he even had a duct tape suit to mock country artists who were wearing flashy suits  .
