Growl - s/t 1974

Released on Frank Zappa and Herb Cohen's DiscReet label in 1974, this album remains largely unknown. The album is a mix of Rock and Roll/hard rock/blues rock. There are shades of Johnny Winter on some tracks as well as CCR. The singer even sounds like Nazareth's Dan McCafferty in places. Reminicent of Foghat's earlier work. All in all a very good, if not very short album that deserved so much more attention. But like most bands of the early 70's, Growl faded into obscurity.
If you like no -bullshit/straight forward Rockandroll, then this album is for you.
