Whichever way you shake a stick at it, the lone album from studio creation Speedway Blvd is arguably one of the greatest hard rock albums that has ever been released. In a fair world this record would have gone on to sell several million copies propelling the band to international fame and fortune. As it happened, despite being signed to a major label, the record came and went in the blink of an eye with barely any acknowledgement of its existence. There's an interesting story here too. The project was initially envisioned as a studio creation by the legendary bubblegum production duo of Kasenetz and Katz. By the mid seventies they had turned their attention to hard rock, creating in-house studio band Ram Jam and securing a massive international hit single with the track 'Black Betty'. With strong ties at Epic records the production duo gathered another cabal of New York musicians together to form Speedway Blvd. The focus was on lean and mean hard rock, with strong melodies and the killer voice of vocalist Roy Herring Jr. The unit also included future Balance bassist Dennis Feldman and Dream Theater keyboard player Jordan Rudess.
Originally issued in 1980, because the album bombed it received little exposure and even less publicity. The band never played live and, in effect, never really consummated their studio gestation beyond these ten songs. Songs (all written by the band) which include the bombastic stadium rock of '(Call My Name) Rock Magic', 'Out Of The Fire' and the zeppelin influenced title track.
