Bonanza & Son 'Song Of The Day’.

Tompall Glaser-'It’ll Be Her’

Originally written and recorded by Billy Ray Reynolds (soon to be a 'featured artist' on Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM) and also our joint equal ‘Song Of The Day’.

Tompall’s version featured above is one of a number he cut of this song and is taken from his 1977 LP 'Tompall Glaser and His Outlaw Band’ on ABC records. (Ignore what the YouTube description says, they’ve got it wrong!) Also not to be confused with his previous and similarly titled 'The Great Tompall and His Outlaw Band' LP from 1975 on MGM.

This cut is Bonanza & Son’s favourite of Tompall’s versions of ’It’ll Be Her' with it’s pounding, 'tight-as-a-ducks-arse' ryhthm section and sublime guitar/pedal steel interplay topped off with the dirty, gutteral, growl of Glaser's voice that is the hallmark of his best records and for us this is the one.

The whole LP is a driving, freigh-train of a rowdy record and a quintessential example of the renegade, sub-genre that is ‘Outlaw Country’… Enjoy.

Bonanza & Son are taking a little summer break except for a few choice DJ sets + 'Countrier Than Thou' at the end of August (see below). We are also taking a short break from our ResonanceFM radio show til September however you can catch up on past Bonanza & Son radio shows on our Mixcloud page ( and if you haven’t heard the recent show where we interviewed Denny Tedesco, Director of the ace documentary 'The Wrecking Crew’ then please have a listen as it’s a corker of a show and most illuminating for any self-respecting music geek!
