New Addition: Cactus – S/T (1970)

Cactus - Atco SD 33-340
The self titled debut from Cactus was released in the summer of 1970 for the ATCO label. Consisting of former members of Vanilla Fudge, The Amboy Dukes, and The Detroit Wheels, the group churned out some decent, albeit un-exceptional, hard rock. After initially calling it quits in 1972, the band reformed in 2006 (check out their site), minus singer Rusty Day who was killed during a drug deal in the early 80s. Copies of the “Cactus” record can be found easily enough in the wild, and they regularly show up for sale online for under $10. Check out their killer cover of Mose Allison’s “Parchman Farm” below!
