MONEY First Investment Rock Candy (2007)

Forever known as NWoBHM nearly men, Money should have made but never did. Oft accused of riding the movement's wave, this album was actually issued in 1979 on Gull.

There's a lot of punk ethic in here, but a lot of talent too, and more than a touch of melodic rock too.

"Leo The Jester" features some fantastic riffs, and there's a hint of AC/DC in there, while "(Aren't We All) Searching" is more high octane pub rock.

This four piece were bolstered by the production of Chris Tsangarides, who also provided some keyboards.

"Cosmic Lullaby" is an acoustic strum, a breather in the middle of the album, as is "Opening Night", a harmony vocal piece, before the rock kicks in again.

Genuinely a lost classic. A bonus track and sleevenotes that are more essay cum dissertation.
