October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

Jeez I remember buying this album years ago because of the cool sleeve, and I was reet pleased because I heard it before Geoff Barton reviewed it in Sounds hahaha! I think this is my favourite of the four Gammma albums, although they are all excellent, especially Gamma 2. Ronnie Montrose plays up a storm on this album and his guitar sound just smolders. Davey Pattison is also a fantastic vocalist who should be more well known than he is! Top stuff!

My brother turned me on to Gamma when we were kids. Excellent work, this one. I've always believed that Ronnie was underrated. Even when Sammy sang for him, Sammy got all the credit. Not to put Sammy down, but Ronnie has alway been loaded with talent. This album was a masterpiece.

Great album. The album is worth it just for "Fight To The Finish".

R.I.P. Ronnie! You'll be sadly missed :-( Our loss is God's win...

RONNIE TEARS OFF THE COVER ON THIS THEIR 1ST. LOADED W/MUSICAL TALENT THESE GUYS JAM. EXCELLENT MUSICIANSHIP. I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT HOW GOOD THIS IS AND HOW GREAT THEY WERE. I LOVE YOU GUYS. YOUR MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN FUN TO LISTEN TO REGARDLESS OF WHAT,S GOING ON IN THE WORLD. YES RONNIE WAS READY FOR SOME ACTION AS HE FOUGHT TO THE FINISH IN HIS WAR W/CANCER. WE HAVE LOST A TRUE LEGEND IN MUSIC. I HOPE I,LL LEAVE SOME KIND LEGACY TOO. PEACE.

Very good release which would set them up nicely for the majestic "Gamma 2". My only gripe about this is that the guitar is too low in the mix & overshadowed by the synthesisers but song wise there are some gems. "Razor king", "Fight to the finish", "Wish I was" & "Thunder & lightning" all set a high standard & there is no filler in sight. Davey Pattison was a great vocal discovery at the time

Their best release IMO. Tracks #1, #2 and #8, awesome!
