The plan was for the Vanilla Fudge rhythm section of bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice to join with guitar god Jeff Beck and his singer Rod Stewart in a supergroup of sorts. The plan was derailed when Beck had a motorcycle accident that incapacitated him for 18 months. Stewart then joined pal Ron Wood in the revamped Faces (and pursued a somewhat lucrative solo career), leaving ... Read more in Amazon's Cactus Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Cactus STILL Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!! 1 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this in 1971, intrigued by the line-up of Ex-Vanilla Fudge men and the guitarist from my favourite U.S. band of the 60s, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. I wasn't too enamoured[at first] of Long Tall Sally but the album took off after that.Thanks to the fantastic Eddie Kramer's brilliant engineering, the subtle effects on headphones still thrill me after all this time.I could never find the poster in the US edition[or German edition] of the album as it wasn't issued in England, but after looking for nearly 30 years, I finally found one in Vancouver. Later I found another one in London so now have two copies..... Unfortunately all it is, is a copy of the fold-out inside cover!! I was quite disappointed!! Standout tracks are Rock and Roll Children, Feel So Bad, One Way or Another and the icing on the cake, Big Momma Boogie!!!!!However in retrospect, the whole album stands the test of time as do their other albums. As far as I'm aware, they never came over to the UK,except for the Isle of Wight festival when I happened to be in Canada!!!Its great to have their stuff on youtube and also to hear both versions of the line-up.There's some great stuff on Jim McCarty in some of the Guitar Magazines and one day I still hope to see him and his Les Paul live somewhere on the planet...I saw Carmine and Tim with Jeff Beck at the Rainbow in 1974[?]and have one of Carmine's sticks somewhere...So it was the Scrambler, was it Jim???I still feel that Jim reaches[and refreshes] the parts that other guitarists strive to attain and some of his other bands e.g the Rockets are worth checking out too.Hope to see you one day Jim somewhere on the planet!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is definitely worth the price!!! 30 Mar 2007
By J. R Sategna - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Get this remastered CD now! Like the other reviewers, I have all the Cactus albums on LP and this one sounds very much alive on the CD! Hard rock Blues from the seventies--Jim McCarty is one hell of a guitar player and Rusty Day is a great singer-the raw loud voice, and with Tim Bogart on bass and Carmine Appice on drums-youi have a very excellent sound. I saw them numerous times at the Fillmore West in San Francisco and they tore up the show--they played many times with Ten Years After and Toe Fat (remember them?) at these shows--what a combination. Get this one-spend the money--Hey--get all their albums-they are all great!!! The newly formed lineup(2006) is good but not like this one----Go for it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great CD and band 11 Oct 2007
By Randolph Von Dingleton - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is one of the best CDs of the 1970s if you like your rock on the hard side with r&b and boogie mixed in. The rhythm section of Bogert and Appice is excellent (originally from Vanilla Fudge and after with Jeff Beck in BB&A), Jim McCarty is a great guitar player and the late Rusty Day was a very capable and talented vocalist. There is not a bad cut on this CD. The first three Cactus CD's (Cactus - which is superb, this and Restrictions) along with the limited release Rhino live CDs are well worth the investment to those of you who've heard them before, or are looking for a great rock band from the early 70s that isn't well known. 'Ot and Sweaty and Cactus V are worth checking out as well (but in my opinion a notch below the others for two reasons, one the death of Rusty Day and the lack of McCarty and Day on 'Ot and Sweaty).

The first side of the old LP DOES rock and the second site is very nice and bluesy and filled with great music (and playing). The rendition of Long Tall Sally is a great start to the CD. It's an LP I've loved since it's original release. Get this and the first Cactus CD and you decide.Cactus

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding "Top 10 All Time" Hard Blues-Rock Album! 28 Jan 2007
By Omar the Music Lover - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album(vinyl) in a cut out bin in 1972. Since then, it has certainly been one of my prized possessions. This is without a doubt one of the finest hard blues-rock bands ever! Side one(the first 4 cuts) will rock you out of your seat! This is 3 piece rock at its best! My friend called this side the "feel so good" side. The other side(last four cuts) is very bluesy but well done(the "feels so bad"side). If you like really pure hard rocking blues from the early 70's, this is a must! I know that the CD is rare and costly. I'll be watching for someone to find the masters and re-releasethe CD. It's truly a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I can die a happy Cactus fan! 22 April 2007
By Robert E. Swan - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Epic blues rock and quite possibly the most underated hard rock record of the 70's! I can't believe I got my hands on the remastered japanese CD - worth every penny of it's forty dollar price tag. The packaging is quite impressive with the look and feel of the 70's vinyl release. The sound of this record is spectacular - a must purchase for any Cactus fan.
