Hydra - Land Of Money (1975 us, hard southern rockin')



Hydra’s second essay titled "Land Of Money",  rolls on the same hard Southern rails as their debut, but having a little bit more tougher directions, bringing to mind the  bands like Bad Company not only as musical style but in vocals also.

Hydra comprise by excellent musicians,  playing remarkably their southern  hard rock crossbreed , there are of course references to Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The album was recorded in spring 1975 and released during the summer.
