Montrose The last two tracks are also at this pace. Perhaps these tracks sound a little laboured in comparison with the rest of the album, but they are all good rockers in their own right. Eight tracks in just over half an hour, but well worth the money. I had to get a copy and spread the word to my friends. I had completely forgotten how good this line up was.
I hadn't heard any of their stuff for years, so they seemed completely refreshing again. Funny thing is - the kids loved it as well - especially bad motor scooter which has become a favourite driving song. The CD has been excellently remastered so the sound quality is great too. Shame a lot of modern bands are not this good - or am I just getting old? I purchased this album when it came out on recomendation from a friend at work at the time i was I loved it then and i love it now at It never got the credit it deserved when it came out and a lot of people have probably never heard of them.
There are no fillers here just great powerful rock. If you are young or old i and you havent got this treat yourself to one of the best rock albums ever. I first bought this album on vinyl when I was 15 and it was first released. I have not listened to it for years. Great driving rock and not a single weak track on it. It is even better than I remember it. Heard a track from Johnny Walker show which inspired me to purchase this album.
Had this album in the seventies and great when it is played loud. Bad Motor scooter was my favourite track and when recently heard it I still liked the album. Whole album is great without a bad track on it.
If you like guitar based rock you will like this, end of story. After listening to this, i realised that they were way ahead of their time. This is a must buy it really is that good. Bought the vinyl the day it was released, so when I saw this I had to get it. A great album from a great time in my life. Some brilliant tracks to help me roll back the years!!!

So, with that thought in mind, I decided to purchase another copy and give it a fresh listen with ears grown older and more appreciative of a little diversity, and I'm glad I did. On my first listen after receiving it I found myself liking it much more than when I was in my 20's. I still find the tune I loved best,"I Got the Fire", to be the highlight of the disc, but to my surprise I found the entire disc likeable and worthwhile.
The rest of the songs are not just filler,as I used to feel. Overall, I give this disc a solid four and a half stars. The 2nd CD does not rock like the 1st. Saw Montrose open for Humble Pie back in the 70's They absolutly exploded on the stage!
The crowd went crazy! Buy the 1st CD!! My best friend was a drummer and had turned me on to the first Montrose album from After hearing Paper Money in , we decided to start a hard rock band and we covered some Montrose tunes. I'm sure a lot of high school bands were formed in after hearing Montrose.
Sammy Hagar was a real showman then and was known for jumping over amplifiers and being all over the stage. A trait he took with him in his solo career. No one else did that. It was very cool. This was stadium rock at it's best.
On We're Going Home, Ronnie Montrose showed he was not only a fast guitarist but could deliver bendy, vibrant, tasty licks with amazing control and emotion. The instrumental, Starliner features an array of innovative chords, technology and a fun melody and of course, backed by the strongest rhythm section anywhere. The youth of today are discovering where to get their musical energy bar when they hear Montrose and Paper Money and when they decide to diversify, Montrose's later albums won't likely disappoint them.
This album is great. The first time I saw Montrose, it was after Album 1 and yes, did he ever rock. The last time I saw Ronnie, it was a pure acoustic set. He definitley mellowed with age. I had most of his albums at one time. This second Album is fantastic as he explored beyond the hard rock mantra of the time. It was more in line with some of Journey's early stuff which you will never hear on the radio. Very tasty and one of my favorites. Definitely a buy! The good tracks here are incredibly good and make this a great buy.
This is pure Montrose-Hagar heavy. Another reviewer suggested putting these songs in a different order,I agree with that. I think I am walking in circles here,if you like heavy get the first one and if you like the first one get this one for sure.
It seems rather evident to me that Ronnie Montrose was not too interested in repeating the rock classic of a year previous. He'd done it, and now he seemed to have the elbow room to pursue other textures plainly even by adding keyboards to the line-up. As imperfect as it is, the album in some sense is more rewarding than the first. Listen to the reworking of "Connection" by Jagger and Richard. Sung much more beautifully, the acoustics heartrending.
More moody, atmospheric Then for sheer straight ahead Ronnie, you've got "I Got the Fire". It may require more patient listening than the first, but I believe you'll be amply rewarded. Kudos to Montrose for not repeating the formula, and branching out onto some new aural scapes in the sophomore effort. I don't think this album is better than Montrose's debut, so don't be mislead by the title of this review.
I bought Paper Money on vinyl the day it hit the stores in '74 and remember my disappointment. The first album was a heavy metal freight train from the first song to the last - Paper Money did not pick up where the first album left off.
Over the past twenty-seven years Paper Money was seldom removed from the old peach crate. However, over that same period of time I became a huge Ronnie Montrose fan collecting the CD's of everything he did from the early Montrose days to his most recent instrumental "guitar music.
I bought it, and after all these years listened to it again. Even though I am no longer influenced by the anticipation of waiting for the second Montrose album, not to mention a more mature listener of music, I must say I still felt something was wrong with this album.
I soon found the answer I was looking for, with a little help from what is called the Program Function, available on most CD players.
What a differce it makes when you listen to this album in a different order. If I had the chance, I'd ask guitarist Ronnie Montrose and lead singer Sammy Hagar why "Underground" written by Rappaport, and "Connection", written by Jagger and Richards, were choosen as the first two tracks. They are both good songs, but all the momentum built up by the first album came to as screaching halt. Here is a suggestion, start off with track 8, the title track, a song actually written by Montrose and Hagar, but more importantly a song that gradually introduces the listener to a band that is evolving.

On October 13, , Rhino Entertainment released a Deluxe Edition. The first six tracks are demos from the album's recordings. The remaining are from the group's debut performance, a session on KSAN radio from the Record Plant in Sausalito, California on April 21,
