Description

Hooker - Rock And Roll CD. Compilation of recently unearthed recordings from this killer Houston, Texas area 70s hard rock band including tracks from their never-released album. The music is loaded with heavy Texas-style guitar action and oozing with that unmistakable 70s Texas rock and roll party vibe. They've been described before as a Texas version of Aerosmith, or similar to Blackfoot. The guitar team of Hampton and Howland bust out all over this album with blazing over-the-top guitar battles that have a nearly metallic edge. While the early album cuts are full-throttle Texas hard rock, the later 70s bonus cuts lean towards a combination of hard rock and early metal in the vein of the rare Survivor "All Your Pretty Moves" album. Vintage/Rockadrome label fans of Ultra, Cain, and Poobah and bands like Hunt, The Gods, Totty, Impeccable, and Magi will surely dig this one.  Includes 3 bonus tracks, including a cover of Tin House's I Want Your Body.

Reviews

I did road crew for this band in the early 70’s while playing in Matagorda Texas. This is and was the best band in the 70’s. Awesome rock and roll!!!!!
Oh my God Hooker's "Rock and Roll" album is a hidden gem!. This lp is hard rock at it's finest! Killer guitar riffs with just enough of the blues is what you will find here. Is hard to believe that Hooker never made it big. They should have. Hooker could rock with the best of them. If you are into that 70s hard rock scene, than get this album! It will rock your world!
