DOC HOLLIDAY – Doc Holliday [Rock Candy remaster]
A reader ask for the first two DOC HOLLIDAY albums remastered and ‘reloaded’ by Rock Candy Records each with 2 bonus tracks. Well, both are must have classics… let start with the self-titled “Doc Holliday”.
Originally known as Roundhouse, vocalist Bruce Brookshire and his bandmates had to switch to Doc Holliday when they found out that another band was already operating under the same moniker.
A first, self-titled album was recorded in Orlando (Florida) and released through A&M in 1981. Under the guidance of renowned English recording engineer and record producer Tom Allom (Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, KIX) the result was a blast.
Great reviews fell to them and before they knew it, they toured (and drank) more than they cared for supporting Black Sabbath, Loverboy, Molly Hatchet and more.
“Doc Holliday” is perhaps the greatest Southern Rock album ever recorded, on par with classic gems produced by more known stellar acts from the genre.
Doc Holliday never reached a high level of popularity, but has managed to make a name for itself with their awesome blend of hard rockin’ riffs and the melody of bands such as .38 Special or Van Zant.
All songs are killers, but if I have to pick one, “Keep On Running” is an all time Classic Rock, facemelter classic.
Simply put, “Doc Holliday” delivers the kind of music to rock your socks off.
This Rock Candy remastered edition is brilliant, not only marks the first time on CD for this great album, but also includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks from the original sessions.
A Must Have.
