This album of Sammy Hagar that was not released in Brazil is wonderful, stupendous. A rock record to listen to from the first track to the last from side B loud and clear. I always say that every great musician is always very well supported by his band. "Tell me who you are with and I'll tell you who you are." Sammy Hagar along with Kenny Aaronson, Michael Shrieve and Neal Schon could only result in such a phenomenal album. By the way, all the musicians who play with Sammy Hagar are exceptional artists and Sammy Hagar's success is related to the musicians who have been with him since the beginning of his career, as well as the quality and musical competence of Red Rocker. Top of The Rock, Missing You, Animation, Valley of the Kings, Giza, Hot and Dirty, He Will Understand, My Home Town, (say what about this?) Without comment. This is the most rock can offer us. Whiter Shade of Pale (Procol Harum cover) is the most beautiful version ever made of this classic rock song. Brazilian fans love this album by Sammy Hagar & Co, even though it had never been released by Brazilian labels, but I also released it.

My mom had this on vinyl at one point, I never knew who it was until later on when I had started getting familiarized with Sammy's stuff and I recognized the name Hagar on the cover...one of the first "Supergroups".

this album fuckin' rocks. Neal and Sammy kill. Hope that Sam decides to release this in full. i have an article that says they were originally gonna put out a double lp but the record company ruled that out. So Sammy, please release all the music that was recorded on this project.
