After leaving the Edgar Winter Group in the early 70s, guitarist Ronnie Montrose immediately put together Montrose--a hard-rocking quartet comparable to Led Zeppelin. Over the years, the band's 1974 self-titled album has come to be seen as one of rock's greatest debuts.
But while numerous bands such as Motley Crue, Van Halen etc., praised the album, it never sold in any quantity, instead becoming one of rock's great overlooked cult items. An incredibly consistent album, MONTROSE serves as the recording debut for a young singer by the name of Sammy Hagar, and contains numerous highlights--"Bad Motor Scooter," "Rock Candy," and "Space Station #5" being tops.
