An hard rock group formed by Mark Stein after Vanilla Fudge. If you like "Rock Music" you WILL love Boomerang's self titled one and only album. Forget the fact that this was recorded 31 years ago, like any great music this is timeless!
You might recognize Mark Stein's name from the Vanilla Fudge. Gone are the complex arrangements and psychedelic effects that were a trade mark of the Fudge. But Stein's distinctive vocals and his awesome Hammond B3 organ sounds are still here.
Guitarist Richard Rameriz was amazingly only 16 years old when this album was recorded. However he plays like a veteran of many years and studio sessions.
"Juke It", "Hard Times", "Mockingbird", "Cynthia Fever" and "The Peddler" are solid rockers that will stick with you. "Fisherman" is a lesson on greed. The ballad "Brother's Comin' Home" is a tribute to returning war veterans, something that was rare in that time of our history.
The only drawback to this album is there is not enough of it! Only 7 tunes...but what tunes they are. This album is a classic in the progressive rock history.(By Ray Hollingsworth)
