Album Of The Day-Buffalo-Volcanic Rock (1973)

The Album Of The Day goes back quite a bit. Aztec Music has recently re-issued all 5 albums by Australian heavy rock band Buffalo. But their finest work in my eyes is "Volcanic Rock" which is why I am making it The Album Of The Day. Enjoy!



Review:

"2006 reissue, remastered with two bonus trax and 20 page liner notes of classic1973 hard rock band from Australian band Buffalo. One of the great lost classic Australian LP`s from the 1970`s is Buffalo`s 2nd. " The second Buffalo album, Volcanic Rock, is now heralded as the first great stoner rock record. Listening to it now youre reminded immediately of contemporary artists like the occasionally maligned Wolfmother. At the time of its release Buffalo were compared favourably and unfavourably with Black Sabbath. The comparisons with Sabbath were and remain inevitable. Theres the same reliance on the meandering heavy rock aesthetic (songs routinely went for over five minutes), thumping drums and rich, kaleidoscopic guitar moments. And they just dont make guitar solos like this anymore." -FasterLouder.com

Product Description:

Volcanic Rock - one of the band`s greatest records and essentially the first stoner rock album ever issued in Australia. The importance of Volcanic Rock can never be underestimated. This is the album that established the band`s reputation for dispensing uncompromising heavy psych rock of monumental proportions; this is the album that continues to enthral aficionados of the genre the world over. It was this LP that established the classic line-up of: vocalist Dave Tice (who later joined UK R&B band The Count Bishops), guitarist John Baxter, bass player Pete Wells (who later switched to slide guitar in another legendary Aussie band: Rose Tattoo), and drummer Jimmy Economou. Aztec Music will be reissuing all 5 Buffalo titles in late 2005 / early 2006 - Dead Forever, Volcanic Rock, Only Want You For Your Body, Mother`s Choice and Average Rock N` Roller. Each release will be a deluxe version: newly remastered from the original master tapes with rare bonus tracks. They will be packaged in a 6-panel digi-pak with 24 page booklets - liner notes by Ian McFarlane, rare photos and recent interviews with key band members. Please note: there have been several unauthorised Buffalo CD`s released over the past 10 years - Aztec Music`s reissues will be the first ones that are both fully licensed, and done with the full co-operation of the band themselves - look for the AVSCD catalogue number & Aztec Music logo. Buffalo were the first band outside the UK to be signed direct to the prestigious progressive label Vertigo. The bonus tracks on Volcanic Rock are the mono single version of Sunrise (come my way), and a live version of Shylock.

Track Listing:

01. Sunrise (Come My Way)
02. Freedom
03. Till My Death
04. The Prophet
05. Intro: Pound Of Flesh
06. Shylock

Bonus Tracks:
07. Sunrise (Come My Way) (Single Version)
08. Shylock (Live at Hyde Park, Sydney 1973)
