MONTROSE Montrose Rock Candy (2009)


A classic debut, this 1973 album is still held in high esteem by many. Led by guitarist Ronnie Montrose, the band were fronted by one Sammy Hagar, a solid pairing.

This straight ahead hard rock set opens with the rifftastic 'Rock The Nation', while 'Bad Motor Scooter' is a fuzz fuelled with a touch of boogie. 'Space Station No.5' is one classic many will recognise.

The emphasis is not just on Montrose's guitar, Bill Church's driving bass should not be overlooked, the band work so well together.

And on the line of classic tracks, 'Rock Candy', a track so good they named a record company after it. And production from the legendary Ted Templeman helps the sound too.

In the early 70s, straight American hard rock didnít get much better.
