5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album - remastered. 31 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you own or have heard, Thank christ for the bomb,or Split, then I highly recommend this next album to cap their early seventies output.. The Hogs at the very pinnacle of their career Miss Ogny just has to be heard if you love rock as goes the whole album try 3744 james road. What a guitarsound! Tony McPhee is smiling all the way through this. remastered it is as clear as a glass of volcanic spring water.I am so happy to have a copy on CD, their new drummer Clive Brooks fits in with ease replacing Ken Pustlenik, Highly prized album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 1972 classic 19 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
From the opening immaculate crisp chords of 'I love Miss Ogyny' this album is amongst the best that 1972 had to offer. I've been the proud owner of this classic for 35 years and it's still as fresh today as it was when it first 'blew my mind'. The Hogs were moving into a more experimental era but thankfully held on to everything they had learned from their blues cruise. This is a cocktail for musical perfection.The balance on this album is perfect in my opinion. Every guitar note sits comfortably. Not overstated but at the same time complex enough to allow you to listen hard and absorb the wonderful tapestry created by a man who can.After a while you start to appreciate the contrast and different characteristics of the two main electrics used here,(Gibson SG and Fender Strat). Clive Brooks (Drums) and Peter Cruickshank (Bass) provide a perfect backing, again never overstated, for Tony McPhee's excellent vocals and guitar master class. The original album (first 8 tracks) concludes with a return to the blues. When you hear the acoustic excellence of Tony on 'Mr Hooker Sir John' it provides some explanation as to why this album is so good. The original album was around 40 minutes long which was fairly typical at a time when length could compromise sound quality. You might have to spend 'big bucks' to aquire this new, but if you do your dinner parties will become the best attended in the neigbourhood!!
My 'track' scores:-
1. I Love Miss Ogyny 9/10
2. You Had a lesson 9/10
3. The Ringmaster 7/10
4. 3744 James Road 10/10 (longest and best track 7 mins 15 secs)
5. Sad Is The Hunter 9/10
6. S'one Song 8/10
7. Earth Shanty 9/10
8 Mr Hooker, Sir John 7/10

tracks 9.10.11 and 12 not on the original album so ,as a purist, I'm ignoring them for this review.
Overall rating 8.5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite albums from this era.. 11 May 2008
By DSR VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant piece of rock, with prog overtones. Is it really well into its fourth decade since release? It still sounds so fresh and the music is timeless.

I remember hearing "Split" but at the time it didn't "catch" me (well, I was a bit too young to appreciate it), but thanks to John Peel (again!!) I heard tracks from this album and went straight out and bought it. I wasn't disappointed.

As with other LP's I bought many years ago, this one came out every ten years or so and was enjoyed, then replaced in the rack when the next batch of oldies came out, but recently ".....Miss Ogyny" has been rattling round my brain and I wanted to listen again.

The thing about most of the recording artists at this time was that they could PLAY their instruments well and they did with a passion. Sometimes, the muse completely took over and the music took a life of its own. I'd say that Tony McPhee and band were in tight control of what they were doing, but the fact that these tracks are so timeless shows that they got the music and songs just right. Listen to the whole thing or just pick a track and let it power out of the speakers.

Talking of power, the production of this album goes completely against many of the "prog" releases of the time, with intense and very powerful bass lines driving everything above. Tony's guitar work is expertly spread around the stereo too, full use being made of the soundstage left to right (and front to back as well, if your sound system allows it).

This is a GREAT classic album. RECOMMENDED! Now to investigate the other Groundhogs albums I missed first time round...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good golly......at long last. 9 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a relief finally to have access to what (i presume) will be a "regular" re-issue of the final early United Artists albums. (Rather than one of those crazily-priced BGO copies which are currently available.) I simply could not understand why this "golden era" Groundhogs title was unavailable. (Copyright problems?) I even found myself forking out eight quid for a very good-condition, original GB copy of the album, last September. That seemed excellent value for money, quite frankly, given that the cheapest cd copy was available for about 55!

Whilst i haven't yet gotten around to playing that LP, i'm looking forward to rediscovering great tracks like "Sad Is The Hunter", "You Had A Lesson" and "3744 James Road" in their original context. If Tony McPhee's guitar playing can be accused of being very heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, The Groundhogs ploughed an interesting furrow with their brand of proggy, bluesy rock.

PS. Still BGO, but not your typical cheapo re-issue. Pleasingly presented, this one, with its very own slip-case.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 11 Mar 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Classic British blues rock from one of the best, but least well known, bands of all time. This should belong in everyone's CD collection along with their other masterpiece, Split. I first heard it 25 years ago and I still think it rocks.

There was always something about the Hogs... although not the 'best' guitarist or vocalist, Tony McPhee was an individual with his own style and sound which really worked. Read more
