Shacklock's love of Spanish music underlines much of the album, evident in many of the riffs and licks that adorn the songs. At the end of THE MEXICAN, they roar into a version of the theme from For A Few Dollars More and many of the lyrics conjour a picture of the wild west.
BLACK DOG begins quietly, even spookily but turns rock hard by the end.
They even manage a fair take on the old Zappa favourite, KING KONG.
The highlight however, is the beautiful THE RUNAWAYS, a true tale of angst set against a delicate melody which in turn is followed by a desolate piano motif which builds and builds into a grand rock-meets-orchestra finale.
later cd versions found First Base coupled with it's inferior follow up, Amar Caballero but here it reigns in all it's own glory.
If you enjoy crunching seventies rock with superior vocals and premiership quality guitar, you'll only be cheating yourself if you don't buy it.
