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 vocalist too.

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.
