REVIEW:
ROCK AND ROLL'S FORGOTTEN GEM, January 13, 2005
By
J. Anderson (Amazon Customer Review)
Breach Of Lease, You Gotta Roll, Whiskey Vengance, Jessica, Kool Aid Kids...It's all here, Haunting vocals, screaming guitar, Titanic riffs, The Hammond B-3 organ squeezed through the almighty Leslie speaker, Hard rock bordering on a Jazz/Metal fusion. This is probably one of the most overlooked albums by one of the most underated bands of all time. With Bloodrock there is never a dull moment. Music to be jammed to...music to be listened to. I'm convinced that the very song that brought them into the limelight (D.O.A.-from Bloodrock 2), turned enough people off that THIS album, Bloodrock 3, never had a chance to be recognized for the masterpiece that it is. This record would be at home along side of such other masterpieces such as Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", Alice Cooper's "Love it to Death" or Grand Funk's "Closer to Home". I judge a great album by it's listenability from beginning to end. There is no filler here. This album simply ROCKS! In my opinion, one of the greatest rock and roll records of all time. If you have never heard this record, you are missing out.

MUSIC TREASURE, August 11, 2000
By PETER SERRANO (LOS ANGELES, CA USA) - (Amazon Customer Review)
Growing up as a teenager in the early 70s was colorfull. I remember Vietnam, my first girlfriend, the first James Gang album, Deep Purple in Rock, and BLOODROCK 3. The Bloodrock 3 album somehow became an anthem for me during those colorful years. I have been eagerly waiting its release in CD after my turntable died. Now that it is out, I am as happy as the first man on the moon. If you appreciate music, Bloodrock 3 has a unique musical essence like a classical masterpiece, it is poetic an melodic, and the musicians were so cohesive and played with finesse. I personally think of all the Bloodrock albums, Bloodrock 3 is the best. I particularly like Jessica, Song for a Brother, Kool Aid Kids, and Breach of Lease. The transfer to CD is very good and full sounding and the sound in my tubed gear is awesome but you can hear some tape hiss from the master tape if you turn it up.This album is a gem that marked a special time in my life... Jeff pass me that roach...just kidding.

I wonder who played sax on "A Certain Kind"? Was it Warren Ham or one of Capital Records' studio musicians?
