Biography by Steven McDonald:
Following the dissolution of Poet and the One Man Band, Albert Lee (guitar), Pete Gavin (drums), Tony Colton (vocals) and Ray Smith (guitar) got together with Chas Hodges (bass, violin, vocals) and Mike O'Neill (keyboards) to form the country-influenced Heads, Hands and Feet and recorded a double album that had a great deal in common with the work of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Grateful Dead at that time. Their self-titled debut album, populated with guests from the folk and singer-songwriter scenes, was released as a double record in the U.S., but only as a single album in Europe. The record was very well regarded, with Lee's guitar work garnering attention.  Read more

Biography by Greg Prato:
While countless rockers started their careers in the New York suburb of Long Island before going on to worldwide success (Billy Joel, Twisted Sister, Steve Vai, Brian Setzer, Blue Öyster Cult, etc.), there have been countless acts that appeared poised for a breakthrough, but for whatever reason, fell short. Many longtime followers of Long Island-based rock would probably agree that tops on the 'woulda/coulda/shoulda' list were the Good Rats, a group who played at some of the East Coast's best-known/biggest venues (Madison Square Garden, Nassau Coliseum, the Philadelphia Spectrum) during the '70s, while opening for such big names as Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, the Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Journey, Heart, Styx, Meat Loaf, and Rush, among others. Specializing in a tough form of bar band/hard rock (comparable to Led Zeppelin early on, before getting more commercial), quite a few bandmembers have waltzed through the Good Rats' ranks since their formation during the late '60s, … More info

Re-post: CWT - The Hundredweight (1973)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 200 mb+3% recovery

CWT was a three piece British band that somehow ended up on Germany’s Kuckuck label, home to such acts as Armaggedon, Ihre Kinder, and Out Of Focus. Adding to the mystery is that this was co-produced by Andrew Loog Oldham. I suspect that CWT was one of the many British bands that were able to support themselves only by playing the club circuit in Germany.This is some serious ass-kicking early 70’s British rock, with the guitarist and bassist doubling up on keyboards, and some fierce brass parts that were apparently recorded at Motown Studios. Heavy riffing abounds, the singer is gruff and aggressive, the rhythm section is way solid, and the lead guitar playing is awesome. No credits as to who the players are in the driving brass section, but they have no problem finding the groove and sticking with it. Great use of flute and chimes in a brilliant cover of Love’s ‘Signed D. C. ’Even though the brass parts were apparently recorded separately they definitely don’t seem tacked-on. All in all this is a real good example of heavy-duty early 70’s rock.

Re-post: Ironhorse - Ironhorse (1979)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 257 mb+3% recovery
Following the disappointing lack of success of FREEWAYS and growing musical differences, Randy Bachman left Bachman Turner Overdrive in the spring of 1977. He retreated to his west coast home to ponder his future. After serving as producer for other acts including Trooper, he began writing new material while searching out the supporting cast for his new group. He began writing with Washington State native Chris Sparks. Drummer Mike Baird and John Pierce on bass were recruited to round out the group.

A deal was struck in '78 with Scotti Brothers Records and the band travelled to Hollywood's Studio 55 to record the demos, with Bachman serving as executive producer. They released their self-titled debut the next spring. It was described as Bachman's outlet to let loose all his penned up musical frustrations, the album ran the gamut of rock's spectrum, from the gritty "Watch Me Fly" and "Old Fashioned" to the almost-eclectic "Stateline Blues". The first single "Sweet Lui-Luise" showed great promise, cracking the Top 100. By that summer their second single "He's A Joker" hit the airwaves and also gained moderate success. "She's Got It", penned by Sparks was quick to follow, while the band was on the road finishing up their first North American tour.

Pressure from the label to come up with a more main-stream album led to Sparks being replaced with vocalist / keyboardist Frank Ludwig, who'd recently left Trooper. Released in the summer of 1980, EVERYTHING IS GREY featured new bassist Ron Foos as well, and was a fitting epitaphe for the band, with nothing seemingly going right. Problems with management and the label's financial woes were affecting the band - on the air and onstage. Though tracks like "Try A Little Harder", "Only Way To Fly" and the title track all held their own, all the problems going on, plus the changing musical landscape in general spelled the end of Ironhorse. Now released from their contract with Scotti Brothers, they replaced Foos with Bachman's fellow Brave Belt and BTO'er C.F. Turner on bass, and carried on - now under the monikor of Union in 1981.

Star Spangled Banger - Star Spangled Banger (1973)

Review from
Star Spangled Banger was a short-lived studio project that resulted in a sole, self-titled album and single in 1973. With the record company closing soon after its release, the album was quickly deleted.
Principal songwriter John Brownrigg originally hailed from Liverpool and had played in several bands during the Merseybeat boom of the early ’60s — as his own brick on the Cavern Club wall of fame attests. The band were put into the studio with engineer/producer Gil Matthews.
Armed with a stack of sound effects records, the album was recorded at odd hours and resulted in an eclectic mix of progressive rock, protest songs and ballads — with a healthy dose of humor (witness: ‘Fancy Underpants!’). Added to this mix are: explosions, backwards tapes, crazy keyboards, nuclear explosions, crashing aeroplanes and fuzzed-out psych guitar.

Legs Diamond was an obscure hard rock/heavy metal band from the late '70s. Founding members Michael Diamond (bass) and Jeff Poole (drums) were originally from the San Francisco area, but it wasn't until the duo relocated to Los Angeles that they found the missing pieces to the puzzle -- singer Rick Sanford, guitarist Roger Romeo, and keyboard player/guitarist Mike Prince -- resulting in a recording contract with Mercury. 1977 saw a pair of releases, a self-titled debut and A Diamond Is a Hard Rock, and although they supported both albums with arena tours opening for such major rock acts as Styx, Ted Nugent, and Kiss, neither failed to dent the charts.

Neil Merryweather, Canadian bass player,  started a band in the late sixties, after quitting Bruce Cockborn’s band Flying Circus.
His early albums like Merryweather, and Word To Mouth were more towards the psych rock, but the two albums he recorded for Mercury Records that were releaed in 74-75 were just amazing glam/hard rock albums, with a much heavier sound.
Space Rangers (released in 1974 and sounds exactly like 1974 should sound)
Masculine guitars, brilliant drum/bass work,  strings arrangments, powerful vocals and one killer cover of Eight Miles High, and this is just the begining. The songs are so damn good that this album will be playing constantly in your ears once you’ll listen to it.

Icecross - Icecross (1973)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 260 mb+3% recovery

Copenhagen in the autumn of 1972, the crucible for Icelandic hippies, where the Free State of Kristiania held the promise of a better world where everyone was equal, providing according to available resources, partaking as needed. We celebrated the one year anniversary of Kristiania gathered around a great bonfire and promised to turn the Free State into a model of cooperation, togetherness and solidarity a sort of primal Christianity.
The club Revolution in Copenhagen was the place to listen to live
music, all the latest and freshest. Usually it was rather bland stuff, I found, but the there appeared this amazing rock band, so amazing that we were left gaping and staring Icecross hard as nails and supertight. When the boys had finished playing they mingled with the audience, having a beer or perhaps lighting up a pipe. It turned out they were Icelanders living in Kristiania with big dreams - fully justified judging from their performance that night.
For several reasons Icecross never made it. My understanding was that they got tired of the struggle abroad and wanted to go back home. They did, however manage to cut a record bearing the name of the group. A superb record I listened to a lot, until it gave way to newer music lying in the stack but enjoying short-lived revivals off and on over the next few years until it suffered the inevitable fate: too scratched and contaminated with booze to be playable.
Decades later, searching for old music, I started to come accross the record here and there on collectors' lists and for no small change - one wanted to buy it for $200 and another to sell it for $500. People were starting to talk about “the legendary and mysterious Icecross” but there were far fewer sellers than potential buyers.
As time went more and more copies started cropping up and further investigation revealed that the record had been reissued in various places. One owner offered for sale a record which had been published in Holland, another had a copy from Italy, and suddenlty someone was advertising a CD made in Korea. Everything strictly illegal but showing the widespread call for this marvelllous recording.
The Internet revitalized the sale of Icecross. At the time of this writing, a simple Google search reveals at least five different bootleg publishers which bears witness to the place accorded to Icecross in the history of rock music.
