Album Review

Thick as Thieves has Trooper sounding pretty sturdy and musically adept, even on the filler. Frank Ludwig's keyboards helped in giving "Round Round We Go" its number ten placing on the Canadian charts, tied with "Oh Pretty Lady" for the band's highest ranking single, while "Raise a Little Hell" became the band's most popular tune, thanks to its blunt guitar/drum composite and straightforward, rudimentary beat. But aside from these two hits, songs like "Live From the Moon," "No Fun Being Alone," "Say Goodnight," and "One Good Reason" all sport attractive rhythms, surprisingly brisk harmonies, and lyrics that don't seem as if they were written as last-minute efforts. Although the group's intentions were obvious on "Drivin' Crazy," it does meet its designed purpose as a gratifying driving tune, but both "Gambler" and "Roll With It" are a little weak and sound rather negligent when compared to the rest of the album. Thick as Thieves stands out, albeit slightly, from the rest of Trooper's releases as an album that makes for a sufficient listen from one end to the other, while most of their hits are better appreciated in compilation form on Hot Shots, their best-selling album.

Long Overdue

Whomever decided to add this on Itunes should be promoted to head genius.

Raise a little Hell

Awesome 1 hit wonder. Another good Canadian band. Great Party song!

raise a little hell

Glad to see Trooper here, Raise a Little Hell is like a BTO single B-side. Didn't realize Frank Ludwig was with them too. He and Randy Bachman collaborated on the two IronHorse albums and I think the Union album too, which are all also a bit unknown and underrated. All kinda makes sense.

Vocalist Ramon McGuire formed Trooper (originally Applejack and later Winters Green) in 1972. By 1974 they had added drummer Tommy Stewart and bassist Harry Kalinsky. After hearing Trooper play, Randy Bachman signed the band for his Legend label and released "Baby Woncha Please Come Home" in 1975. The group's self-titled debut appeared the same year; it was followed by Two for the Show (1976). Soon after, Frank Ludwig became Trooper's piano player and Kalinsky was replaced by Doni Underhill.
