In 2016 it’s not easy to be a Ted Nugent fan but if you put aside his political views you have to admit that the guy made some amazing rock’n’roll music in the 70’s.
Nugent’s last release of that decade has just been reissued on vinyl by Culture Factory USA and it is truly a thing of beauty. “State Of Shock” contains 9 Nugent originals plus Ted’s version of The Beatles “I Want To Tell You” which was written by George Harrison.
“State Of Shock” has been pressed on translucent green vinyl and includes the original album cover artwork. The LP is limited to 2,000 copies worldwide making it an immediate collectible! The vinyl edition has also been meticulously remastered in 24-bit/99 kHz High Definition for the best sound possible.
Standout tracks include “State Of Shock,” “Paralyzed” and “Bite Down Hard.” As far as Ted Nugent albums go this is not as good as his self-titled debut, “Free For All” or “Catch Scratch Fever” but if you are looking for a cool collectible that sounds far and away better than the original vinyl LP release then this version is the one to own.
