Title - The Trogg Tapes
Artist - The Troggs

For those unaware, British garage rock legends the Troggs made their U.S. debut in the summer of 1966 with the Chip Taylor-penned Wild Thing, a worldwide smash that has been covered by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Runaways, X, the Damned, Divinyls, Krokus, and countless others.

After releasing four well-regarded studio albums in the 1960s, the Troggs went on hiatus at the turn of the í70s. But by 1976, and the end of the glam rock era, they were back in action delivering the infectious melodic rock of The Trogg Tapes.

This album features groovy originals like Supergirl and Down South to Georgia alongside covers of Rufus Thomasí Walkiní the Dog and Brendon Dunningís Rock íNí Roll Lady.

A vinyl release of The Trogg Tapes will arrive later this year.

1. Get You Tonight
2. We Rode Through the Night
3. A Different Me
4. Down South to Georgia
5. Gonna Make You
6. Supergirl
7. Iíll Buy You an Island
8. Rolling Stone
9. After the Rain
10. Rock íNí Roll Lady
11. Walkiní the Dog

This excitingly high-spirited album opens on the rocking foot-tapper Get You Tonight and the mid-tempo, lush rock of We Rode Through the Night and backs those up with the highly impressive guitar work found within A Different Me, the southern blues of Down South to Georgia and then come the funky twangs of Gonna Make You.

Along next is the rocker Supergirl and the atmospherically-charged, mid-tempo balladry of Iíll Buy You an Island and those two are themselves backed by the rocking hipsway of Rolling Stone, the album rounding out (all too soon, in my humble opinion) on the slow poke embrace of After the Rain, coming to a close on the cheeks-pinched, gritty vocalization of Rock íNí Roll Lady and the earthy rocking blues of Walkiní the Dog.
