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 hard to find, first three LEGS DIAMOND albums, all with a large amount of bonus tracks. Regarded as one of the finest American hard rock LP's from Seventies, "A Diamond Is A Hard Rock [Rock Candy remaster +6]", never sounded better.After their killer debut album "Legs Diamond", hiring Eddie Leonetti (Giuffria's Angel) to produce this follow up LP was a master stroke as he infused the songs with a groove and commerciality which made the 'Legs' so irresistible.First comes the title track's fist-pumping attack, then it's the dragging-nearly-stalling pace but cool strut of the organ-laced "Waiting" with its fantastic groove.These are followed by one of the Legs Diamond's catchiest, most powerful numbers ever in "Long Shot" (great guitar solo as well); and there's "Woman", an excellent ballad (with Rick Sanford putting in a stellar vocal performance) which became a regional hit in several markets, and now it's a classic tune.'Side two' (I still remember playing this LP vinyl to death) boasts additional career highlights, ranging from the irrepressible tandem of "I Think I Got It" and "High School Queen," to the sensual, sauntering "Evil," borrowing heavily from Uriah Heep.The bonus tracks from this Rock Candy reissue are demos, yet taped with a really good pre-production quality audio, and all rock hard.Recorded in their native Los Angeles, "A Diamond Is A Hard Rock" showcases Legs Diamond at the very peak of their powers, unleashing a veritable barrage of rock solid material.Cleverly bridging the gap between balls to the wall hard rock and more catchy / melodic content, the album builds on their reputation as a band that could easily combine clever instrumental prowess with hard as nails riffs."A Diamond Is a Hard Rock" stand out as perhaps the best album of Legs Diamond's career, pound for pound. A really welcomed reissue in all its glory.
