"THE DEBUT Montrose album is universally regarded as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, hard rock albums of all time. Released in early 1974, it introduced both a sound and a swagger that single-handedly dragged heavy rock kicking and screaming from its turgid proto-metal roots into a modern streamlined era, opening up a brave new world of possibilities. It was the sound of a mould being smashed to smithereens and the birth of a new epoch; a sound that Van Halen would co-opt for their own earth shattering debut four years later. For guitarist Ronnie Montrose and frontman Sammy Hagar, this was indeed history in the making. It has been rightfully said that there is not a weak track on this album. Every guitar riff, drum break and ball-squeezing vocal rings out with a pristine clarity that sounds as astounding now as it did when it was first released. Essential to their monumental sound is the creative axis of Sammy Hagar and Ronnie Montrose, who provide the classic guitar/vocalist foil, in a tradition set by Plant/Page, Jagger/Richards and Tyler/Perry. With Hagar's immediately identifiable vocals and Montrose's juggernaut guitar riffs the results are truly mind blowing. It is an album full of classic hard rock moves. From 'Rock The Nation', to 'Bad Motor Scooter', through 'Rock Candy' (a track so good, in fact, that a record company was named in its honour!) to the truly Herculean 'Space Station #5' there is no denying the sheer thermo-nuclear power. With the emphasis on maximum mayhem we ask only that no prisoners be taken. Once again, the gods of war are unleashed". Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition. Features Sammy Hagar (Van Halen, Chicken Foot), Ronnie Montrose (Gamma, Edgar Winter Band), Denny Carmassi (Heart, Whitesnake, Coverdale/Page) and produced by Ted Templeman (Van Halen, Aerosmith, Doobie Brothers). Remastered - Sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology by Jon Astley (the Who, Judas Priest, Eric Clapton etc). 16 page full colour booklet - 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the band.
