Goddo - Goddo (1977 canada, superb tough boogie rock, 2019 extra tacks remaster)

Goddo is a Canadian 3-piece hard rock band originating from Scarborough, Ontario that formed in 1975. Greg Godovitz (bass/lead vocals), Gino Scarpelli (guitar), and Doug Inglis (drums) unleashed a brand of powerhouse arena rock featuring heavy riffing guitar and a thunderous rhythm section of bass and drums. They released their first single, “Under My Hat”, from their self-titled debut album in 1977 under Polydor Records which became a radio hit.

Although primarily a supercharged high octane power trio, they also included elements of jazz and crushing blues rock. Godovitz together with drummer Doug Inglis and guitarist Gino Scarpelli set about recording their debut album in Montreal, unleashing one of the most striking Canadian debut albums of all time. Issued in early 1977, and housed in a superbly illustrated gate-fold cover, the album kicks off with 'The Bus Driver Blues' a lyrically hilarious track written about the band's previous drummer who left the group to drive a school bus. Other tough-nut rockers include 'Drive Me Crazy', 'Let That Lizard Loose' and 'Hard Years'. Of course, the jewel in the crown is the jazz tinged 'Under My Hat', a song complete with truly memorable hook and menacing vocals from Greg.
