Biography

Biography by Eduardo Rivadavia

One of the first American-bred hard rock groups to challenge British supremacy in the early '70s, Montrose is remembered as, if not the most successful, then certainly one of the most influential bands of the era. In fact, many of the personalities responsible for the group's legendary, self-titled debut (producer Ted Templeman, engineer Donn ... Read more in Amazon's Montrose Store

I've always loved this album but can understand why many people were unimpressed. It's predecessor was undoubtedly one of the greatest rock albums of all time, and was widely recognised as such. Maybe it was naive but Ronnie and the boys were not content to make a follow-up which was a mere continuation of the same winning formula. Instead they went with (to my ears) a more mature, varied, and less commercial sound, which was still better than almost anything else around.

Ronnie Montrose trademarks abound on this album - his willingness to do covers (in this case one of the Stones lesser-known songs "Connection"); instrumentals - "Starliner" was to be first of many and has an unforgettable hook ; heavy slide guitar in the title track ; and his inclusion of slower and acoustic material. He provides the vocal on "We're going home", which has a killer guitar solo, and which no doubt probably upset Sammy Hagar not a little!

"I got the Fire" is as good as anything on the first album, and is similar to a Hendrix riff but metallised. This should have been the album opener which instead was the over-produced "Underground", melodic enough but maybe the weakest song on the CD. "Dreamer" has a very heavy riff, and "Spaceage sacrifice" is a nod to Ronnies interest in sci-fi, and is a strong mid-tempo number.

Bass (provided by newcomer Alan Fitzgerald) and drums are much more to the fore here, with Denny Carmassi turning in perhaps his finest ever performance on record. Hagar provided another excellent set of vocals on this album, but disagreements with Ronnie Montrose led to a parting of the ways, and a decline in both parties output. Montrose's next 2 albums and the first few Hagar releases were pretty naff affairs.

In summary :not as good as "Montrose", a touch over-produced, less in-your-face guitar, perhaps a song short of being a classic, but I wish someone was making albums as good as this today !

Released on its own people would have claimed that this album and band were going to be destined for greater things..but we all knew that this was a follow up to the mighty Montrose Debut which ripped across the music world leaving everyone gob smacked and panting for more. On its release this ` Paper money ` second album was different and had a more deeper edge to it some didnt click with it others me included gave it more playing time and grew into it, you should try it, these guys rock and Sammy Hagar`s voice is not as strong on future Van Halen albums as this, and Ronnie Montrose his guitar work speaks volumes.

Playing wise Montrose still cut it on this, their second album. Sadly the material's just not there to back it up. It does suffer in comparison to their classic debut. Having said that the version of the Stones' "Connection" and "I got the fire" are worth the price of admission alone.

The outstanding eponymous first album was always going to be a tough act to follow for Montrose. Sadly Paper Money rates as little more than a reasonable effort. The songs sound formulaic by comparison and overall the album fails to engage. "Connection" and "We're Going Home" strive to broaden the band's repertoire beyond their power chord driven forte but come across as a bit wet rather than anthemic. The rest of the songs have a rather slapdash, knocked together on the back of a fag packet feel.
It's a shame because this was a band with real delivery capability. Ronnie Montrose could spank the plank with the best of them and Sammy Hagar had Robert Plant like passion in those days (whereas later on he was more about the hair and the trousers)
