Stray Dog - same (1973) @flac
"Stray Dog was a heavy blues-based hard rock band of the early seventies. Their early sound could be described as crunching blues rock typical of the time and place, but was very original and distinct through Snuffy Walden's unique guitar playing. They recorded three albums throughout their career before disbanding around 1975 due to a "combination of drugs, alcohol, and immaturity."
They originally formed in Texas but relocated to London in hopes of making it, since there were many blues rock groups coming out of England at that time. While there, they met Emerson, Lake and Palmer bassist/singer/guitar player Greg Lake, who subsequently signed them to the ELP label Manticore Records and produced their first two albums. Their first album, Fasten Your Seat Belts includes contributions by John "Rabbit" Bundrick and Mel Collins
