It sounds like early-to-mid 70s heavy SOUTHERN rock with a mix of guitar styles
Screaming bar-room style hard rock, with some funk and some boogie blues thrown into the mix. A few of the cuts sound a little too over-produced, but overall, a very consistently great record. Alas, we'll probably never know the real skinny on these guys. Though released in '78, it's anybody's guess when it was recorded.
