Grinderswitch - Pullin' Together (1976)

This album, 'Pullin' Together', was my first introduction to Grinderswitch. And it's still one of my favorites of theirs. It was also the first album with new keyboard player Stephen Miller, which surely contributed to a fuller, richer sound. Besides that, the songs are just plain good/fun. On Sweet Home Music there's a nice interview by Luc with guitarist Dru Lombar, which you can find here. Grinderswitch was one of the main Southern Rock bands (on Capricorn) of the 70's. If you're new to Southern Rock and want to know what it was all about before everybody wound up sounding like Lynyrd Skynyrd, this is a nice place to start. Higher ground.

... and I have the same story with the group
Grinderswitch was so pleased me, that I have collected their first four albums on vinyl

Grinderswitch opened for the ABB at my very first concert a few months before this was released. Looking forward to hearing them again.
