Customer Reviews

Under appreciated classic

Although most people like the Hagar era Montrose better, I love this album. This album's only problem is that it came out in 1976. '76 was a great year for AOR. Check out 'Rich Man', 'Crazy for You', 'Let's Go', 'Merry Go Round'. Bob James is a great singer in his own right. Don't try to compare him to Hagar. It's apples and oranges. Both are great in their own way.

Excellent, EXCELLENT album!

A friend made me a copy on tape just before I flew out to Seattle, back in 1985 or so. I listened to it on the way out, while I was there and on the way back, and then had to get another copy, as I WORE IT OUT!

Got it on vinyl, and on CD as well, but I am glad to see it here!

Best cuts:
Music Man
Crazy For You
Rich Man
What Are You Waiting For?
Jump On It

In that order. Bob James' vocals are strong and vicious. Ronnie is absolutely incendiary. INCENDIARY! (to steal from "Almost Famous"!)

In short, GET THIS ALBUM! You won't be disappointed.

Better Than "Presents" But...

The switch to Bob James on vocals turned many Sammy die-hards away but Jump On It has it moments. Basically, this was it for Montrose. Bob James, on vocals, sounds much better than the last album but Jim Alcivar's keyboards are the story. More rock-pop flavor with some very under-rated work by Ronnie. Let's Go, What Are You Waitin' For and Jump on It all rock. Music Man starts slow but then features Ronnie dishing out some razor sharp licks. Better than Warner Brothers Presents but by 1976, Ronnie's instramental direction was showing itself. Tuft-Sedge was a hint. Either you love the album cover or hate it.


Formed: 1973 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s

One of the first American-bred hard rock groups to challenge British supremacy in the early '70s, Montrose are remembered as, if not the most successful, then certainly one of the most influential bands of the era. In fact, many of the personalities responsible for the group's legendary, self-titled debut (producer Ted Templeman, engineer Donn Landee, vocalist Sammy Hagar) would later become instrumental players in the formative and latter-day career of the mighty Van Halen. And to his credit, though...
