Bighorn hailed from the Pacific Northwest believe it or not and like their unlikely stomping grounds, they came and went without much fanfare despite releasing two excellent albums, I Get High (1974) and Bighorn (1978). It's quite a surprise since this very distinct and talented quintet were solid writers and performers. Resembling fellow AOR acts, Kansas, Styx, and Starcastle, the band dabbled with light progressive rock and added a heap of pomp to their sound. The band's history goes all the way back to 1970 and for a number of years, members came and went until finally settling on the lineup featured here. The band's label deal crumbled shortly after the this album's poor sales figures, but the band continued slagging away on the club circuit until finally coming to rest in 1981. I'm not sure what happened to all of the members after the split, but a few of them went on to join AOR group, Aviary. Vocalist Bob Marcy passed away as well. I recommend lovers of smooth AOR to check this talented band out and see for yourself why Bighorn should've been destined for bigger things.
