Legs Diamond is an American rock band that has often been called "The American Deep Purple". They formed in Los Angeles, California starting with Michael "Diamond" Gargano (bass) and Jeff Poole (drums). The group released their self-titled debut album for Mercury Records in 1977. The original band broke up in 1980 after three popular albums, but reformed in 1984 after their original albums had begun to acquire a cult following.The new lineup released several more albums and continued to perform throughout the 1990s and 2000s. In 2005, original frontman Rick Sanford was replaced by ex-Montrose and Wild Horses vocalist John Levesque, and the band released their latest album, "Diamonds Are Forever", in 2006. Original members include Roger Romeo (guitar), Michael Prince (keyboards/rhythm guitar), and Jeff Poole (percussion). The band still does the occasional gig in the Los Angeles area and at least once a year in San Antonio, TX where they are still hugely popular, the result of being a favorite of influential disc jockey Joe "the Godfather" Anthony (1940-1992).Keyboardist Michael Prince is active in studio recording, in Los Angeles, working with some better known R+B and Pop Acts, including Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Usher, Los Lobos and Michael Jackson.Guitarist Roger Romeo is also currently working in a new band called the Funkin Maniacs. Power drummer Jon Hyde (Detective) and NS Stick and bassist Gary Jibilian round out the trio. They are recording a new CD slated for release early 2012.As of 2011, the band was working on their 12th CD due to be available within the year.
Rock Candy Records has just remastered the first three LEGS DIAMOND albums, all with a large amount of bonus tracks. Let's start with the rocking "Fire Power".The great leveller in life is the mysterious arrival of Lady Luck. You can carry on investing time, experience and energy in anything but without a well timed appearance by the grand dame of serendipity you might as well whistle in the wind.That, unfortunately, was the case for Legs Diamond, one of the greatest, yet underexposed, hard rock bands of the Seventies. That they had the talent and the mandate to climb to the very heights of success, sadly, life decreed otherwise.Having recorded two sensational albums for well heeled Mercury Records, the band were casually cast adrift when sales figures revealed unexpected and disappointing results.The band were almost immediately signed up by independent label, Cream Records, who thought they knew a thing or two about hard rock.Fire Power" actually received good promotion and contained arguably one of their greatest tracks, namely ‘Underworld King’, a song that further bolstered their reputation as the American comparison to Deep Purple.Other highlights include ‘Come With Me’ and ‘Man At The Top’, the heavy funk rhythm of ‘Midnight Lady’, the jubilant, light-in-the-darkness of ‘Remember My Name’, and ‘Chicago’ primitive barroom boogie.This Rock Candy reissue includes 11 bonus tracks, all recorded live-to-tape into the studio soon after "Fire Power". These were intended to form the basis of the band's next album.Pile in some fine sound remastering and you have a near perfect formula; this is the ultimate version of Legs Diamond's "Fire Power".
