THISS HARD ROCK 😛 Reply About fifteen years ago I found the SQAWK LP in my dad's record collection: it became the sound track to the best summer ever. BUDGIE I SALUTE YOU! (wish I could remember what became of the record…) Reply It's both heavy metal and hard rock, sheesh! Reply Wow,this ain't bad at all. Almost funky ! Reply more cowbell! Reply i loved budgie then and i love budgie now 🙂 Reply squawk….love it:) Reply This song makes me think of lava bubbling in a volcano 😀 Reply The Rockfield studio recording setup of the early-mid 70s exactly suited the bands very distinctive and unique HM sound. Added to that, obviously great production / engineering. Right place right time right tunes. A classic LP and yes, truly timeless. Reply Wicked groove! Reply Bro…! Reply poobe Reply Nice riff Reply Been jamming to Budgie for 40 years…without them, absolutely NO RUSH…along with Frank Marino, Moxy, Demian…some of the great, great unknown and unappreciated groups of the 60s-70s… Reply their greatest song Reply Yee Haw….Boogie On…. Reply Sorry Jimmy Buffet, Budgie fans are the REAL Parrotheads!! Reply Some nice single kick action on the drums Reply It's like sabbath zeppelin and ZZ Top all in one Reply Way down inside 😉 Reply I might be one of the few 20 somethings that used the internet to find great music like this rather than listen to the bullshit that's marketed to my peers. Reply …. their Masterpiece !! .. with a GREAT SONG (, that I can identify with.. 🙁 …) Reply Budgie is a great band!! Reply I am back in high school. love love. love this song Reply superb drum job here Reply That riff at the start though. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
