Guy, McCoy and Torme- Bitter and Twisted
(Retro Wrek Records FIRK112

From Aural Innovations #38 (Jan 2008)

Wow.. Thanks to Sue for turning me onto this.. In the early 80’s Bernie Torme was one of my favourite guitar players and then he seemed to disappear but here he is again teamed up with John McCoy on bass, who he played with for some years in the Gillan band and Robin Guy on drums who played with Bruce Dickenson and many others. These guys just went into the studio, plugged in and kicked out 11 heavy rock numbers. I was surprised how hard some of these numbers rock and the music really had a raw edge.. Bernie still has that tone and vibrato and his voice sounds nearly the same as 20 years ago. This is just simple down and dirty rock and roll, sometimes a little cliché but it rocks and is not over produced…. Check it out.
