Music Millennium

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this album from the British hard rockers including six bonus tracks. Includes 12 page full color booklet with 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, new photos and new Interviews. Nutz had been building a solid reputation in the UK as one of the best rock bands emerging during the mid-seventies. By constant touring and two previous well received albums under their belt, the band had secured a solid fan base and strong support in the media, helping to position them as an act to watch for bigger and better things. Under normal circumstances that would have all been well and good but the times they were a changing. The emergence of punk rock looming over their shoulders suddenly turned a very sunny outlook into something altogether gloomier. This situation couldn't have been more unfortunate as Hard Nutz, the band's third studio album, was unquestionably the pinnacle of their creative achievement thus far. It was a record that fully refined their objectives by bringing not only their sound and material into a fully cohesive package but also positioned them as real contenders. Sadly, as we now know, the punk climate was not conducive to the kind of traditional hard rock that Nutz had made their own. Issued in 1977, and featuring new member Kenny Newton on keyboards, the record was greeted with an enthusiastic reception by their bulging fan base. Produced by Gary Lyons and John Sinclair (who would that same year produce the multi-million selling debut from Foreigner) the album was overwhelmed by the emergence of punk, leaving them to flounder in the mainstream. 'Tis a pity, as tracks such as 'Seeing Is Believing', 'I know The Feeling', 'From Here To Anywhere' and the pre NWOBHM gallop of 'Wallbanger' are some of the best songs the band ever recorded.
