Cactus - Tightrope Colored Vinyl 2LP
Cactus Tightrope Colored Vinyl 2LP
At the onset of their bright career in 1970 Cactus was called "The American Led Zeppelin." Tall words, indeed, but - Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Jim McCarty and the late Rusty Day - came out only months after their Brit counterparts, only to flame out brightly after four albums before 1973 even started.
Now, four decades later, the band that made such an impression with their loud blues-edged hard rock madness; the band that influenced the likes of Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, David Coverdale and Kid Rock; the band that foreshadowed heavy music itself...are back! This time Carmine Appice (along with ex-Savoy Brown lead singer Jimmy Kunes, harmonica player Randy Pratt, guitarist Paul Warren and bassist Jimmy Caputo) have provided the lusty macho soul. His leather-lunged pipes atop this hot 'n' nasty blues-metal machine made some quality head-first rock 'n' roll. Tightrope is a compelling step into the future upon a bridge firmly built in the past!
