5.0 out of 5 stars Ted's Best Album Ever November 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the second to the last album that Ted did while under the banner of his original band's name, The Amboy Dukes. Their next and last offering was "Tooth, Fang, & Claw", after which came the first solo album "Ted Nugent", which made him a star, and which featured "Stangehold" (I could never quite figure out this track's appeal, as it really doesn't feature a lead guitar solo, and the guitar is what Ted has always stood for). History aside, Ted's best work is CALL OF THE WILD, which absolutely rocks out and actually features some pretty good songs (Ted's weakness as a guitarist has always been his lack of having any really good songs, as opposed to his technical prowess), such as the feature cut "Call of the Wild", the instrumental "Renegade" which merges into the hard blues stomper "Rot Gut", and the best thing Ted ever put on wax (for my money),the very dramatic "Pony Express". This song builds slowly and rises to a musical climax, after which you want to catch your breath and have a cigarette, even if you don't smoke. Although the Amboy Dukes at this time were stripped down to a power trio format, the production values on the album are excellent, with keyboards, multiple electric guitars, and acoustic guitar blended into the mix, which serves to supplement but never overpower Ted's electric lead work and the urgency of the vocals of Ted and bass man Rob Grange. Ted's musical legacy has unfortunately been overshadowed by his political diatribes, his over the top machismo, and his recycling of his product (same songs, different titles), but for anyone who has ever wanted to debate why he should or shouldn't be included as one of the top ten rock guitarists of all time, then all I can say is that you should listein to this. If he never did anything after "Call of The Wild" this would have been his greatest musical legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff! February 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
A nice piece of classic rock n' roll. The band plays with energy and, though the songs aren't really top notch throughout, it's a thoroughly enjoyable album.

First half is more hard rockin'; second half more soaring and atmospheric (both bluesy and more progressive). It makes for a cool contrast and really shows what Ted Nugent can do with a guitar.

Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Youthful, ambitious, Uncle Ted at his best December 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Ted Nugent for 35 years. This is the most progressive Ted Nugent I've ever heard. I've played this disc for fellow musicians and they can't believe it's the Nuge. It lacks the quality of Derek St.Holmes and Meatloaf on vocals that came later, but the musicianship is superb. A real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great record May 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A must for any Ted fan, this underrated album is great in its own right but really gives you
an early look at what was soon to come with his first "solo" album
