5.0 out of 5 stars SEMINAL RELEASE REMASTERED AT LAST, 21 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Montrose (Audio CD)
A long overdue remastering of a bonafide rock classic.

Montrose had everything you want in a rock/metal band , extraordinary guitar player in Ronnie Montrose,rock hard rhythm section in Bill Church and Denny Carmasi and a swaggering sex-god vocalist in Sammy Hagar.

This cd is remastered superbly and is a hundred times more crisp and clear than my moth-eaten vinyl copy the vocals and guitar are in your face,the bass is solid and the drums sound like a herd of buffalo stampeding towards you.

Every track a winner but for the stand out is "Space Station no5" with a riff that influenced many( particularly suspect device by Stiff little fingers!.

Hagar was much maligned when he took over from Dave Lee Roth in Van Halen but in reality Montrose was the perfect apprenticeship as to my ears the bands are coming from very similar angles.

If you like Van Halen, Kiss,or any American Rock music then this cd should really take pride of place in your collection especially when you realise it was released originally in 1973 I think and stands as a precurser to many bands who followed in its wake.

Second Album "Paper Money" is also excellent although I'm hoping Rock Candy get the rights to that and remaster it too.

Essential purchase for any lover of quality rock music.
