Salty Dog – Every Dog Has Its Day (1990)
If there has a been a hard rock CD that desperately needs to be reissued, Salty Dog’s Every Dog Has Its Day would have to be it. With such classics like “Come Along”, “Ring My Bell” and “Where The Sun Don’t Shine” this is a CD that still needs to be heard by all rock fans.
Amazingly, “Come Along” still gets airplay from my local rock station even today. This is an amazing feat for a relatively unknown band. After this kick ass single from Salty Dog, one might be quick to discount this band as another AC/DC clone, but if you dig deeper into this CD, you are going to hear the influences of other massive hard rock bands like Led Zeppelin, and Aerosmith.
Pete Reveen’s guitar work on this CD is excellent, and Jimmi Bleacher’s vocals are perfect for this style of rock. Both of these guys are musicians that I would like to hear perform again. Both Reveen and Bleacher have been missing from the rock world far too long. Reveen’s bluesy licks get better every time I listen to this CD.
Overall Every Dog Has Its Day has lots of excellent rock to feast your ears on. Even the slower tunes “Just Like A Woman” and “Sacrifice Me” are great on this disc.
I am a sucker for this old school bluesy hard rock, and I know a lot of you are too. If you are a fan of this genre, you need to seek this disc out. This CD was originally released by Geffen Records, but has sadly been out of print for years. You can sometimes find copies of it through Ebay, and Amazon.com. Grab this if you can find it! You won’t be disappointed!
