A SUPER BAND !,
This review is from: God Gave Rock & Roll To You: The Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
I have been a fan of this band since the first time i did hear "Hold your Head Up" on the radio and bought the extraordinary "All Together Now" album. Since then i tried to keep track of what they did, but the problem with them is that they had or never had a proper public relations agent or their record company did not promote them much as they deserved.
This "new" compilation comes because they recently re-formed for some few dates. All ARGENT members are extraordinary good musicians. ROD ARGENT, is a former member of the ZOMBIES and also played on THE WHO s' WHO ARE YOU album and produced late extraordinary colombian singer SORAYA all cds and hits. BOB HENRIT and ROBERT ROTFORD became drummer and bassist for THE KINKS.
And guitar player and composer extraordinarie RUSS BALLARD not only recorded top solo cds but also penned hit singles for AMERICA (You can Do Magic and Border), ROGER DALTREY (Free Me), RAINBOW (I Surrender and Since You Been Gone),and ABBA s' singer Frida s biggest hit all over the world "I Know there is something goin on".
RUSS BALLARD had some solo minor singles "VOICES" and "THE FIRE STILL BURNS" and his latest solo cd is his most personal and very best.
ARGENT s' songs like ITS ONLY MONEY (covered by KISS), and GOD GAVE ROCK AND ROLL TO YOU (Kiss) and ALL YOUR HEAD UP covered by FISH and URIAH HEEP among several others.
