One of the most influential hard rock albums ever made was that first Montrose project back in 1973.  Just ask Eddie Van Halen; he molded his band after it!  (The ironic footnote of eventually working with the singer is fodder for another story - maybe one with aliens and ghosts.  I'll work on that)!  I still love hearing certain tracks from the album and even after all this time my response is still "Wow!"  The power that Ronnie, Sammy and crew put down in those days will be forever remembered and rediscovered by generations to come.  It seems timeless!  One of my faves is requested for today's Vinyl Vault, "Space Station #5".  Wow!
