Nugent ....2009 remastered edition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nugent (Audio CD)
Originally released way back in 1982,Ted was faltering slightly as were most of his peers,if Desmond Child didnt write,chances are it wouldnt be a hit.
The irony here was Ted assembled a top notch band once again,retaining Dave Kiswiney on Bass and welcoming back Derek St Holmes whilst bringing drumming legend Carmine Appice on board.
The remaster has given some welcome oomph to the original hit or miss production,the majority of tracks appear to have the title as the chorus such as 'No No No', 'Bound and Gagged' 'Fightin Words' etc No stranglehold'd here.
Still its a decent release, the afore mentioned tracks are all catchy,bring a smile,have to say i clearly didnt pay attention way back then at the lyrics too much,didnt realise 'Bound and Gagged' was Ted's response to the Iranian hostage crisis.
Whilst the majority of the tracks are simiiar, 2 stand out 'Ebony' with its superb solo and 'Tailgunner',the albums standout,the closest to classic Ted as we get.
Approach with an open mind,it was Teds attempt a fitting in in the 80's,he passed with flying colors,it wouldmt last though.
