Jo Jo Gunne - Bite Down Hard (1973)(2003)

Bassist Mark Andes left the band before their sophomore effort, but the band kept rockin’, thanks to a thoroughly road-tested sound and legendary producer Bill Szymczyk’s recording genius. Includes "Ready Freddy," "Roll over Me," "60 Minutes to Go," "Rock Around the Symbol," "Broken Down Man," "Special Situations," "Take Me Down Easy," "Wait a Lifetime," and "Rhoda." A Collectors’ Choice Music exclusive!

Bite Down Hard is Jo Jo Gunne's best album. Great production, great songs, and a great flow, moving from strength to strength. This CD contains the best song they recorded: Roll Over Me. Back when I played the LP though, I always started at track 2, as Ready Freddy sounded awful in 1972 and still does. What a downer, and what a way to begin. Jay had a voice right in line with other vaguely sexless vocalists of that time, but here he just sounds like a eunuch. Yeech. But play Roll Over Me with that dreaded volume knob as far to the right as your aged ears (and maybe aged neighbors as well) can bear. Not just nostalgia, not just pining for a hazy past, but downright solid rock and roll. These guys could boogie. It sounds exquisite, and moves through 3 more excellent cuts...J.C. Clark
