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

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.

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...

What a relief, at long last, 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.

This is one of my favourite albums. I still have the original vinyl with a butter stain on the cover. I lent it to a girlfriend who listened to it while eating buttered toast. The relationship didn't last, she liked the album though!

Thankfully this has been re-mastered superbly and sympathetically by Andrew Thompson and retains the contrast between the crystal clear, almost fragile guitar playing of Tony McPhee and the clam like bass of Peter Cruikshank. There can't be too many power trios that have a lead guitarist that finger picks. This more delicate sound needs to be balanced against bass/drums and this is done perfectly. The sound quality is exceptionally good and sounds just as good if not better than the original.

There isn't a weak track on the album; okay the phased drum solo by Clive Brooks on 'The Ringmaster' is a bit of nothing, but connects the first 'side'. The blues of 'I Love Miss Ogyny' and '3744 James Road' is counterpointed by the prog rock of 'Earth Shanty', the intro on synths and mellotron sounding like Tangerine Dream. McPhee's guitar is nicely spotlighted by the bass/drums combo. I saw the 'Hogs' live and apart from the obvious overdubs of the keyboards, the sound on the CD captures the live feel. I have only heard 'Split', but if there is a finer 'Hogs' album than 'Hogwash' I will be surprised and delighted.

All I know is that now I have the CD, without any additional tracks thank God, I can retire my vinyl and will be playing this for the forseeable future.

If you are a 'Hogs' fan and haven't got this, you must get it. Fans of blues and even prog rock should try it out, I think you will be delighted. I would happily place this album on a par with the best of Led Zep et al. Happy listening.
