Thanks to Tom for the rip, and this one's for Bigfootkit. And for me. And for you... I only knew about this Thunder because Bigfootkit pointed out the connection with John Nitzinger. Not a lot I could find about this album on the web, but Martin Popoff fills in the gaps.
Thunder was a duo, consisting of David Alley and Whitey Thomas. For this, their only release, they got a little help from some friends. Like Bloodrock's Randy Reeder, guitarist Bugs Henderson and, of course, John Nitzinger. John playing guitar, bass and writing about half the album.
Well, it's a fun record for sure. Very 70's, Southern funky boogie rock. I love the keyboards, funny sounds and all, and some fierce guitar picking. The vocals at times have a chipmunk quality to them, but that's alright. And the songs work just nicely for me. There's a song called King's X on the album, written by Nitzinger. Was that where the band King's X got their name from? Anyway, enjoy.
