Rodan / MAX, USA

Rodan - s/t. 1974 Pandora

Super horn rock album, that absolutely kills on most of the 12 short tracks. There are a couple of bluesy moves and at least one James Brown styled funker, but mostly this just rips from start to finish. The kind of album you wish all horn rockers were. Smoking guitar and great brass charts. The rhythm section never stops. California based group was actually known as MAX, and toured extensively with groups like Malo and Tower of Power. Album sports a fantastic drawing on the cover.

One of the band members has started his own label called Digital Cellars, and there's a chance this obscurity will be reissued eventually.

March 2011: Still no word on the Rodan album. And an original copy just went for over $1K on ebay. I guess I won't be getting this one anytime soon.

Thanks again goes to Heavyrock for this one!
