BILLY SQUIER The Tale Of The Tape|
Rock Candy CANDY008
American rock superstar Squier released this set back in 1980, and
while the sound is typical US rock with some great influences. Hagar
and Zeppelin are both in there, abeit more commercially.
Opening with the excellent The Big Beat (which is apparently one of
the most sampled songs ever), the album is heavier than most of the
era and Bruce Kulick (later of Kiss) provides some neat guitar work.
Squier's own guitar adds a hard sound, and he's a strong rock
In keeping with Rock Candy's usual excellent packaging, there's two
bonus tracks and the sleevenotes include track by track annotation
from Squier himself.
As American hard rock goes you really should check it out.
