2007-07-17 Cactus / Cactus
i love Cactus!! this is the one of the best hard rock group for me. especially i love this album that is their 1st album. their rhythm section by Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice is amazing!!! they are the heaviest rhythm section in the whole R&R history!! (so i like Vanilla Fudge, also i love Beck Bogert and Appice too!) and Jim McCarty is well known as the guitarist of Mitch Ryder & Detroit Wheels. Rusty Day was the vocalist of Amboy Dukes that Ted Nugent played guitar. so it looks like a super group. but their first plan was Tim Bogert, Carmine Appice, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart!!! if it was happened, what the great band would be!!! anyway i love this album by this lineup! if Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart joined, thier sound would be very different from it... when i listened to it first time, i impressed so much!! this is the one of the perfect of hard rock for me!! especially Jim McCarty's guitar playing excited me very much!! they have Deep Purple's explosive power and L.Zep's heavy rhythm both!!! but they are the american group!!! (i believed they were the british group at that time...) unfortunately the group finished why their vocalist Rasty Day died. but they reunioned with a new vocalist Jimmy Kunes and released the first studio recordng album in 30 years in last year!!! they're really living legend of rock for me!!
