No Place To Fall has the distinction of being the first album in Steve Young's career not to be released on a new record label - his first four had all been on different labels, but his fifth for once stuck with the same label as its predecessor (RCA). It continued in the same outlaw country style, with backing from veteran Nashville session musicians including steel guitarists Buddy Emmons and Lloyd Green, fiddler Buddy Spicher, multi-instrumentalist Charlie McCoy (on harmonica), drummer Kenny Malone, and many others. It had some strong original songs, plus four fantastic covers - the title track by Townes Van Zandt, "I Got The Same Old Blues" by JJ Cale, the Mentor Williams classic "Drift Away", and an absolutely stunning rendition of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right". It also featured two new recordings of earlier Steve Young songs - "Montgomery In The Rain", and another version of his oft-covered "Seven Bridges Road" (bringing the total he had released by 1978 up to three).
