Montrose: Reissues

Album Review

Re-releases gather the Californian band’s many styles and personnel with varying results.

In 1973, a new Californian band by the name of Montrose – led by the late, great, mercurial guitarist Ronnie Montrose – unleashed the greatest American hard-rock debut album of all time.

This self-titled triumph even eclipsed Van Halen’s first, which was five years into the future at this point. (Though, significantly, both were produced by sonic wizard Ted Templeman).
