Others might like one or both of the previous Gamma albums, but for me, Gamma 3 will always be my favorite.
For years, this cassette lived in my sports car, and made bad trips good, and good trips great. By the time the opening anthem, “What’s Gone is Gone” finished, I’d be driving at least 30 mph faster than the limit, and hoarse from singing at the top of my lungs, and in need of new speakers, ‘cuz I blew them out.
And the rest of the album is just as good. “Right the First Time” gives me chills just thinking about it. “Stranger” is burned into my brain – at least that guitar/voice part.
The brilliance that briefly showed up in “Space Station #5″ (“Montrose”) is all here, in spades. You’re going to love this album.
I, too, have been waiting for this to come out on CD for decades, and look forward to buying it.
BTW – Ronnie Montrose also put out “Speed of Sound”, which is an awesome album.
