From the Author It’s a pretty sick book, really, in my opinion, the best source out there for actually figuring out what really did rock hard in the ‘70s, what sorta did, and as importantly, just how heavy all those cool name-dropped bands from the rare end of things really were. So yeah, there’s a lot of pretty tame stuff included, but like I said, I’ve given you a grade, a cold single number, to figure out that side of it! And again, the second number looks at sheer quality of the damn record, with the actual review, of course, waxing poetically about all of that, heaviness, history, relative greatness, personnel, trivia… maybe much more info/factual-packed than you might recognize from my reviews. That’s it… I think you now know whether you need this thing or not!
