Montrose - their eponymous debut album. The guy on the cover photo, who is looking down, under the S and the E is none other than the Red Rocker himself - Sammy Hagar. He is credited on the record as Sam Hagar. Lest my readers, followers, and fan think I have gone a bit too soft in the music department recently - this record is good, old-fashioned, early '70's hard rock. Out in 1973, this debut album by Montrose was produced by the legendary Ted Templeman. Ronnie Montrose played on Van Morrison's fifth album - Tupelo Honey. I bought this record for fifty cents at a used record and book store last night. I wonder who "Sherry" is. The record and jacket are in pretty decent shape and it plays weel - but based on wear and tear, this record certainly was played heavily.
