Manage episode 291252066 series 1231613
Lauded as 'the American Led Zeppelin', the tale of American rockers Cactus is the encapsulation of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. On this edition of 'My Classic Album', Boone Froggett from Kentucky rockers Otis introduces Mike to Cactus's second album 'One Way... Or Another'
Wild shows with singer Rusty Day arrested before the encore and drug fuelled tours with the likes of Black Sabbath served as the backdrop for the album sessions with 'One Way... Or Another' playing a significant but underrated role in the development of hard rock and metal in its early years.
Which legendary British singer was close to becoming the voice of Cactus?
In what ways can Boone spot the influence of Eddie Kramer who helped produce the album?
Is 'Big Mama Boogie Pts 1 & 2' one of the defining moments in the storied career of drummer Carmine Appice?
PLUS: Enjoy music from Otis with their 2020 single 'Lyndales'.
AND 50 years from the release of 'One Way... Or Another', hear 'Tightrope', the title track from the NEW Cactus studio album!
The legacy of Cactus comes full circle on a special episode of 'My Classic Album'
