Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition / Fully Remastered Audio / Contains Seven Bonus Tracks / Produced by Mike Flicker (Heart, Trooper, Nantucket) / 12 page full colour booklet – 3,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new Interview with band leader Brad Sinsel THE COMMONLY HELD BELIEF is that Seattle’s influential hard rock scene started during the early 90s with the establishment of grunge. However, peel back the layers and you’ll see that even grunge had to have roots. It’s no surprise then to find that TKO, and specifically band leaders Brad Sinsel and Rick Pierce, were at the very beginning of those rumblings, all be it wearing very different clothes. Formed in 1977, the band was originally spotted by Albatross Productions, the original team that first signed and recorded Heart. It wasn’t long before newly formed MCA subsidiary Infinity Records placed them in the studio with original Heart producer Mike Flicker, to record their debut album ‘Let It Roll’. Originally issued in early 1979, the album was the subject of a major promotional push with the band’s progress only to be thwarted by the label’s subsequent financial collapse as a result of advancing $6 million dollars for a part spoken word album of Pope John Paul II.Musically ‘Let It Roll’ was geared towards the 70s rock sound we all know and love, evoking comparisons to the Who, Bowie and Queen, but it was clear that, beneath the smooth productions chops, a hard rock band was itching to impress. Tracks such as ‘Ain’t No Way’, ‘Come A Day’ and ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Again’ bringing to mind the pouting and preening of fine arena acts like Foreigner and more obscure outfits like Trigger and Face Dancer.
