Ted Nugent will forever be one of my three greatest influences. Though originally panned by almost everyone I knew, this was my favorite of the ''Classic'' 1970's Nugent trilogy. And yet few know that the emergence of a future rock legend was still a couple of months away when this album hit the air waves and record racks in 1976. Hidden conspicuously from the public for reasons which may only be known to Ted himself, The ''Bat Out Of Hell'' himself, Meatloaf, provided some powerful vocals on songs like Street Rats, I Love You So I Told You A Lie and my personal favorite from this album, Together! But this album was far more than just a showcase of the vocal talents of Mr. Loaf, it features what I believe is some of the soundest and most creative songwriting within the entire vast catalog of Ted Nugent. Hits Dog Eat Dog and Free For All may have garnered most of the attention but I believe there isn't a weak track in the entire set. Along with the afore mentioned tunes are songs which feature Derek St. Holmes as well. I know most who will find this album here will already know most of the songs and yet I think if you take time to listen to it one more time you may be surprised in what you find. And for those who haven't yet heard this one, take a moment to truly listen to the sound of the 1970's. It's definitely alive and well within the tracks here.
Nuge, another great LP metal lovers must have. Not quite as good as the first , but still worth spinning. Buy it.
