Make no mistake, Ted Nugent is a tool of epic proportions, and one of the reasons that I avoided checking out his music for so long. When I finally broke down and gave his debut album a first listen, I couldn't deny just how great it was. Man, I listened to that thing repeatedly, and could not believe how much I loved it. I mean, that opening riff for Stranglehold...come on!
So, ten years after I first fell in love with it, I'm finally picking up the vinyl. I'm not happy about the ring wear on the cover, but damn, it was tough finding a copy that wasn't beat up and a little ragged, so I made the move to finally cross it off the want list.
