I couldn't find a doggone thing on the net about this great band.
REVIEW:
By Yours Truly
After an hour's worth of searching the net I've come to the conclusion that it's pretty hard to find info on a band from 30 years ago that was named after one of the members. So, maybe I'm the only one on the planet these days that thinks that Allan Ross was one of the great ones back in the mid 70's. To me, this album rocks from start to finish. Great, great melodic guitar work and Alan has a classic rock n roll voice. Many was the evening back in the 70's I'd be out cruizing around town in the truck with this album just blasting from the speakers. Everybody in this band knows their instrument well, excellent bass work and the drummer is a dynamo. There is some nice organ work too but the guitar is the focal point. Alan Ross wrote, arranged and sings all the tunes on this album and why it wasn't a major smash I'll never know. I've been meaning to write the Sundazed people and tell 'em they need to put this music on a CD and start pandering them to the masses. They just don't make rock n roll like this nowadays and we sure could use some..........Give this one a listen...it'll be 45 minutes well spent I tell ya.

Thanks for the feedback Mike, it's nice to know someone is out there and enjoying some of my favorite stuff from days gone by. From the Blog writers perspective it's folks like yourself, who take a moment to say thanks or give a review that makes it more of a rewarding experience.
Keep on Rockin'

I too enjoy Alan Ross and his music, I have both his Ross albums. He also released two more under the name Alan Ross Band with Ebony records. Those are also difficult to find in the US, but if you got $50, you can buy one in the UK. Not sure what happened to Alan and am searching remote sites.

Thanks for the feedback RBR....I had heard of other Alan Ross albums out there somewhere but have never seen one anywhere. I'd be willing to part with the cash to get those 2 you speak of.....just gotta find someone with the goods!

Awesome album, really surprising it isn't more well known-especially since he toured with Clapton and played on Entwistle's solo albums. I come across it quite by accident and after my own internet research came to the conclusion that we're all in the same boat: whatever happen to this guy!? A singer/songwriter this proficient shouldn't just disappear! In any case I highly recommend this album if you can find it!
