Editorial Reviews

Originally a private and limited vinyl release in 1974, Smokin' Bats At Compton's stands as a fine example of '70s hard rock. The overall sound is bluesy hard rock, very much in the style of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, although in recent years they have also appealed to psychedelic collectors. Highlights include the opening track 'Leavin', 'Progress' and the now legendary 'Hey Lover'. 8 total tracks. Radioactive. 2006.

I just got this in the mail last week unlike a lot of other cd's i get it usually takes me a couple of listen's to get use to it but not this time.
This cd started and finished and i liked it right away. I have listened to it 5 or 6 time's since i got it.Very good guitar playing since this is what i usually like i noticed it right away but after listening to it some more i realized the whole band rock's and stand out on there own as the cd keep's going. I don't like to compare group's but if you like 70's rock i believe you will like this. I have been trying new music from that time as i have a lot of the mainstreame stuff and so far i have purchased 3 cd's from the radioactive label so far and i have enjoyed all 3 i will keep trying this label it has been good so far the only problem if you can call it one is there is no information on the band which is unfortunate because it would be nice to know what happened to them after this cd. Thank's for reading.

This album rocks, plain and simple. Sure, they're a bar band from Indiana, but unlike so many similar bands from the era, this group writes and plays excellent rock music. There's not much polish to the production. You get the sound of a talented motivated band rockin' their arses off. The playing is tight and they obviously enjoy what they're doing. I'm sure those lucky enough to have caught this band live back in '74 have some great memories.

I don't think this sounds much like Zep or Sabbath. The product description is way off. This is good 70's hard drivin' party rock. I thought of Leaf Hound, UFO, James Gang, Hard Stuff, Toe Fat, Mountain and a the harder side of Captain Beyond. Excellent music from start to finish. Well played, well sung. If you like the bands I've mentioned, I think you'll get a real kick out of this one.

Heavy garage-rock from '74! Heavy in the MOUNTAIN vein, with an awesome catchy and sloppy guitar riff style a la JAMES GANG. A blunt and bruising final outcome, this disc is a perfect example of the unfairly overlooked `70s metal.

A good jumpstart to the deasil freeze of my brain in the morning along with 'James Gang'. Though I wouldn't call them "southern" rock as with JG. Awe inspiring gitar riffs much as JG. hippie music also has good bass melodies and intricuit drumming work!(I just wish this proficeiancy wasn't always called "oldschool" "hippie' music by the coffee and bagal creamers!) being (only) 38 I still don't see this as "archaic or "hippie' but proficient! In school I wouldv'e classified this right along with some of the 80's edge like "Ratt" or "Riot" only better, and not recognized as "outdated" even then! I resent those who think X is too young as this was "normal" listening in the 80's for a fourteen + year old kid! most of my JHS/HS pals eat this up along with the baladic 80's Van Halen/Riot/Ratt ect.
