Montrose Montrose 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso With Kevin Gray From Original Warner Bros. Tapes!
In 1973 a hard working rock band named Montrose set the world on fire with their
debut album simply called Montrose. Ronnie Montrose’s guitar work was that of
legendary proportions even that early on and what he also brought to the game
was a newcomer and future superstar Sammy Hagar to the hard rock music world.
With heavy pile drivers like Bad Motor Scooter and Rock The Nation, the album
and the band Montrose rose to fame rather quickly and became trailblazers for
many hard rock outfits for years to follow.
Produced by Ted Templeman (Van Halen/The Doobie Brothers) and Montrose, the
Montrose album was full of great songs and superstar delivery from Ronnie
Montrose (guitars) and Sammy Hagar (vocals), as well as a solid rhythm section
provided by Denny Carmassi (drums) and Bill Church (bass). This quartet rocked
the house then and now with tunes like Rock Candy, Make It Last and the Roy
Brown classic Good Rockin’ Tonight.
In an effort to continue to bring you the best recordings ever made on this
planet, Friday Music is very proud to announce the 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
first time release of Montrose. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and Kevin
Gray from the original Warner Bros. tapes at Friday Music Studios, this amazing

seventies, which continues to stand the classic rock test of time.
For this amazing HQ release, Friday Music have also included the original LP
artwork not seen in the LP format since its first release, a poly lined sleeve
