Sweathog - Hallelujah (CD) 
Retro Disc 8432987330160 
 
Genre: Prog-Rock 
Recorded: 1972 
Released: 2007 
 
Remastered. The Top 40 title track got Sweathog some chart action in 1971. Drummer Frosty found fame with the pop/blues minstrel Lee Michaels, and here forges a Southern rock sound with bassist Dave Johnson, guitarist B.J., and organist Lenny Lee -- none of them household names, and an album that is highly competent but as non-descript as the players. When your drummer and a guest pianist by the name of Michael Omartian have more recognition, it is clear it will be an uphill climb. There's an interesting version of ''Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo,'' a song which wouldn't hit until 1974 for Rick Derringer, so the band showed they have some taste (and that they toured with or at least listened to Edgar Winter's White Trash). For the times, though, heartfelt songs like ''In the Wee Hours of the Night'' needed a strong personality fronting the group. L. Goldsmith performing Joe Cocker's ''Ride Louise Ride'' or Sanford Townsend Band material makes for a solid outing, but not the additional hit singles this group needed to amass a following. Great music, stirring performances, it's just that the world wasn't quite ready for Three Dog Night meets the Allman Brothers Band. The title track remains a forgotten classic which oldies stations would be smart to add to their play lists. ~ Joe Viglione, All Music Guide
