The Boyzz - Too Wild To Tame (1978)

The Boyzz, a midwestern bluesy hard rock outfit, were virtually anonymous at the time of their debut release in 1978. Almost 20yrs later and the same could be said. However, in the midwest, the band flourished and sold out shows on a regular basis. After the failure of their one and only album, the band took a short sabbatical and reinvented themselves under the new name, The B'zz. That didn't seem to make much of a difference either. However, in the new millennium there's been a resurgence of the band's popularity in their home turf and a new augmented lineup currently tours the region with reasonable success.

So were they all that bad? Absolutely not. Though there's nothing incredible about them, they do have a certain charm. Since their debut has never been reissued, I've made it available here for your downloading pleasure. Listen and enjoy!

Man, we use to play the hell out of "Too Wild To Tame" and I have been searching everywhere for a remastered disc. Real Scooter Tramp music. ROCK ON!

I've been searching for this album for the best part of 30 years after hearing Too Wild To Tame on a compilation album. I'm in my late forties now and thought I was never going to get hold of it. Having now heard the complete album, I have to say it was definitely worth the wait; many, many, many thanks.

Got this album in 1979 after the title song appeared on a compilation by English rock mag "Sounds". Great then and still great, especially after a few beers!

Bought this on vinyl back in the seventies when I was at High School in Scotland (UK) and again a few years ago on CD. Excellent then and still excellent
