Format: Audio CD
For most Budgie fans the third album is the benchmark. But as far as I'm concerned, this is the one that sends shivers down my ageing back. I never ever tire of listening to this record.
Right from the opening guitar/bass intro riff of Whiskey River to the final chord on Stranded this is an album that has no weak spots and no fillers and never lets up. It's relentless. All the weaknesses of the first album were gone and what was left was raw, ultra heavy rock in its most potent form.
Bass player/vocalist Burke Shelley is one of the truly great but underrated singers to emerge in the 70s. His delivery throughout this album is faultless and his bass playing is magnificent.
Guitarist Tony Bourge really lets rip on this one and I stand in absolute awe at the result. He was, is and always will be a Guitar God. Seriously. The playing here is nothing short of magnificent whether it be the restrained but perfect work on Whiskey River, the blur of notes in Hot As A Dockers Armpit, the folk acoustic playing on Rolling Home Again or the gorgeous lead note choice on Make Me Happy. Go listen. This man seriously ruled in the early 70s.
By no means least drummer Ray Phillips always had an ear for the unusual when it came to drum patterns. This gave early Budgie a sound they sadly slightly lost later on. Ray was never shackled to the snare, bass drum and hi-hat - choosing to lay down patterns over whichever drums he felt suited. Genius.
If you ever wonder why old men with gray hair, large waistlines and dodgy vinyl record collections go misty eyed whenever someone mentions the 70s, buy this record, play it loud and most of all, enjoy.

Having seen this band on numerous occasions it always seemed a tragedy that they never acheived the success they deserved whilst other, less talented bands went onto fame and fortune. Budgie always gave you your moneys worth and they are one of the few bands that never made a really bad album and in Burke Shelley had one of the all time great bassists and singers. This, along with their first and 'bandolier' is the pick of the crop. From the ferocious opener 'whiskey river' to the frantic'stranded' not a track is waisted 'bottled' lets Tony Bourge show off his slide skills and Budgie always had a knack for writing great acoustic songs and 'make me happy' is no exception. The mellotron laden 'young is a world' is probably the best track or maybe 'hot as a dockers armpit' (they always came up with great titles)hell, the whole album is great! Buy it!

Format: Audio CD
This is the second Budgie album and to hear it remastered is a real tweet (treat) sorry about that. the 1st album Budgie has some great material on it and also their third, Never turn your back on a friend. But to me and many others this is the best out of their first five. And the riffs and bass lines just flow.In the middle there are a couple of slowies which are just beautiful!. there are more killer hooks on this CD than a japanese whaling ship I kid you not.. Pure seventies rock and what a rockin` trio they were and still are, different personell now but still a great band. this produced by Roger Bain who also sat in the producers chair for a few early Black Sabbath albums not to be overlooked if you love 70`s rock!!

This was a trip down memory lane for me.
I first heard this album in the 1970s when it came with a George Harrison triple album my step father brought home from the college he taught at.
This is Budgie at the interesting second album stage. It's so hard to follow up a good first album.
Tracks are a great combination of heavy rock stompers and lyrical balladic tunes.
I loved the pictures and the quotes from Burke & Tony. Reminded me of how rough and raw I found Cardiff when I studied there.
I did not quite so enjoy the bonus tracks but maybe that's because you can't quite have the same rawness of "Whisky River" if you have been playing it for the last 30 years !
If you are a Budgie fan you'll have this already.
If you are still to be introduced to Budgie you'll like this album if you enjoyed early 1970s metal.

Squawk was the 2nd long player to be released by Welsh Rock Legends Budgie and hit the shelves in September 1972. This album is packed with killer tunes and ranks as one of the greatest hard rock albums of the 1970's. From the Classic riffage of Whiskey River, Hot As a Docker's Armpit and Stranded to the beautiful acoustic tracks Rolling On Home and Make Me Happy I can't put into words such how perfect this album is...

Track Listing:

1. "Whiskey River" 3:27
2. "Rocking Man" 5:25
3. "Rolling Home Again" 1:47
4. "Make Me Happy" 2:37
5. "Hot as a Docker's Armpit" 5:53
6. "Drugstore Woman" 3:14
7. "Bottled" 1:57
8. "Young is a World" 8:14
9. "Stranded" 6:17

Bonus tracks
10. "Whiskey River" (A side single version) 2:39
11. "Stranded" (alternate mix) 6:19
12. "Whiskey River" (2003 version) 3:20
13. "Rolling Home Again" (2004 version)

BG's Rating: This remastered CD (complete with bonus tracks) shows a legendary band at the height of its power! Great songwriting coupled with great musicianship and a hard rocking sound goes to make BUDGIE one of the greated HARD ROCK bands Ever! 10/10
