LEGS DIAMOND 'S/T' CANDY340 (2CD set with 12 Bonus tracks) Categories: Sales , New Release

“IF EVER THERE was a band that should have taken their music to the very top of the rock charts and beyond, then Legs Diamond were surely it. Feted by the cognoscenti, yet forever living in a shadow, the band’s influence and reputation has actually increased as the years have flown by. To many, their music has come to represent some of the greatest hard rock to have emerged from North America, with some calling them, quite accurately, the American Deep Purple. Formed in Los Angeles during the mid seventies, Legs Diamond developed their chops and killer look at all the hip clubs, on and off the strip, establishing their five man line up and eventually signing to industry leaders Mercury Records, supported by strong management. The band’s debut album came to represent the very soul of a movement that was in full swing, led by the likes of Ted Nugent, Aerosmith, BOC and Montrose. There was nothing shallow about the band’s music or message; it was a full on assault of cock sure riffs, sublime vocals, intricate arrangements and a confidence that you only witness in the most talented acts. Produced by Derek Lawrence (Deep Purple, Wishbone Ash), and issued in 1977, the record contains seven extended tracks, including the prized knock out pairing of ‘Stage Fright’ and ‘Satin Peacock’. Lengthy workouts such as ‘Rat Race’ and ‘Can’t Find Love’ (weighing in at nearly nine minutes) take the band to the very outer limits of creativity yet still pack a heavyweight punch.”
