"Hogwash is one of the great unsung rock albums of the 70's. This is a highly underated Groundhog album. While "Thank Christ For The Bomb", and "Split" are their two most popular albums with a lot of great guitar work on both, Hogwash is the album with the songs on it that really stick to the ribs. Tony Mcphee's guitar work is great as usual on here, but it's his production and music arrangements here that really steal the show. He's never been better than on the unbelievably creative "Earth Shanty", where he uses full orchestration to great effect. And "I Love Miss Ogyny", which has that mysterious, and yet sad sounding guitar intro that still gets to me every time I hear it. But my favorite on here is "3744 James Road", which is 7 minutes of the best progressive blues rock I've ever heard. The original album ended with "Mr.Hooker, Sir John", which was dedicated to Mcphee's idol John Lee Hooker. You also get 4 bonus songs on here. All acoustic tracks very different from the original album, but nevertheless some very tasty guitar pickin' by Mcphee. You can't go wrong with this album. One listen and you'll be hooked. And that's no hogwash. Highly recommended!"
Hogwash is Hogheaven

"A lot of recordings don't get the air play they deserve and the Groundhogs "Hogwash" is one of them. From the opening sounds of "I Love You Miss Ogyny" I was hooked. This was unique and brash. Other terrific cuts include "You Had a Lesson", "S'one Song". "Earthy Shanty" and my personal favorite "3744 James Road". Solid guitar work by Tony McPhee is a true highlight mixed with his distinct vocals. Clive Brooks and Peter Cruikshank provide a great two party rhythym section on drums and bass. Clives innovative "the Ringmaster" solo is wicked.
I had previously purchased "Thank Christ for the Bomb" and was impressed enough to by Hogwash. It won't dissapoint the ardent blues fan by a long shot. Well worth the money."
Totally Awesome

"Hogwash is such a fantastic LP and part of the great unheard underground rock of my college days, that I would recommend this to anyone who loves "classic rock". This album is mostly heavy blues rocks. Earth Shanty is a one-of-a-kind song that is so aweome to sit back and just feel with eyes closed. There is no song I know of that takes you where this song does. I love the DEEP bass and Tony McPhee's lead guitar and vocals are awesome. The guys are very well known in the UK and if they had the airplay here in the US would have become one of the supergroups of the 70s. I spent about 5 years looking for this on CD and finally found it and it's well worth it to replace the LP."
