I've posted these cats b-4, and gotten a good response, so here is my personal fave, Shredder. Cool hard rockin' mixed with the usual introspective hippy type ballads and it makes for a first rate mish mash of good ol' rock and roll.
Kinda psychy, kinda poppy and these guys do a few too many covers (not so much as on their first LP) but they do have a bit of originality and it shows as the covers aren't always your by the numbers ripoffs. I have the first but beat is a kind word to describe the condition so until the right one comes along enjoy this great period piece from Group Therapy. It's somewhere around 37 minutes long.
I was ripping this little gem the other day and I'll be damned if someone didn't request something by these biker-rock types. Crude and rude and 50 different different kinds of fun. Boogie hard rock from Simon Stokes who is still kicking around (at least last time I checked anyway, I recently got a CD of the man dueting with none other than Timothy Leary and one of him solo, and he was only gotten cruder with age). If you like no frills hard biker rock from the mid 70's give it a shot.
Here's the back, if it's readable your eyes are better than mine.
I'm not totallysure but I think I posted it before, but this is a much nicer rip at 256 and still my favorite Bloodrock LP. I remember listening to D.O.A. on my aunt's stereo back when that gruesome song was actually a hit and not realising what it was all about (did the same with Timothy by the Buoys). Hell, I was 5 folks. Cannabalism and plane crashes never even crossed my mind. All I ever thought was they were just cool songs and I still laugh when I think about asking what a mawhasue was when I first heard Bennie and the Jets. Ah, to be young again!
Got a request for some Demon and some Tygers of Pan Tang so here is the '87 LP from Demon (yeah late in the game but it's still a fantastic LP).
And here is the album nicknamed by many sell out from the those Tygers of Pan Tang. Great cover though. I personally like this album but it didn't happen overnight and when it came out I damn near threw it like a frizbee. I was already upset with Def Leppard for Pyromania after the brilliance that was High N Dry (Pete Willis was 20 times the guitarist Phil Collen ever was, but maybe , in hindsight, he did the right thing getting out when he did, Lep was cursed) and then TOPT comes out with what sounded at the time like a clone. But on further investigation and again, the years passing by, this one ain't so bad after all. Really the only clunker to my ears these days is that opening track that sounds like a record company ploy to make some moola. Just skip that one and you have a fairly rockin' affair here. Let's just say it's much better than Hysteria.
