Synopsis

Album Description
Fresh from their nightly duels with the likes of Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas and Montrose for the hearts of the rock 'n' roll heartland, Jo Jo Gunne barged into the studio in 1973 and recorded an album that was every bit as frenetic and, well, crazy as their rock 'n' roll lifestyle (Jay Ferguson terms it a "runaway train" in the liner notes). And, as such, it's a little sloppy, sometimes a little unfocused, but, brother, it ROCKS! And that scandalous front cover art is quite something, too; no wonder fans of the band have a soft spot for this record. Includes 'I Wanna Love You; To the Island; Red Meat; Getaway; Before You Get Your Breakfast; At the Spa; Monkey Music; Couldn't Love You Better; High School Drool; Neon City', and 'Turn the Boy Loose'.
 

CD Reviews

Fine Melodic Rock
Jeff Guitar | New York | 08/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased Jumpin` the Gunne in 1973 when it originally came out. It is a fine album of melodic rock. Thirty two years later , I still listen to it when I`m in the mood for high energy music. Time is the great test and Jumpin` the Gunne still rocks. In fact, all the Jo Jo Gunne CDs are worth owning."
Awesome CD from a sometimes forgotten band
H. Turner Jr. | Bunkie, La. | 12/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first thing that must be said is that Jo Jo Gunne needs to get much more respect than it gets. This is a Hard rockin' CD that needs to be had by any 70's rock fan. My personal favorite on the CD is "High School Drool". Spend the bucks to get this one!!!"
Real Biker Rock to Candy StreetCar Rock
Mark | 05/01/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Why did Jo Jo Gunne tail off in popularity following their first big release with the hit Run,Run,Run? Hard rock bands really liked the sound of that hit and those type of guys were the folks that really supported it. Some of the other songs on that album rocked, but from there the band adopted more of a pop,southern california teenybopper sound rather than the tougher hard-driving sound from RunRunRun. There were exceptions but Jo Jo lost it's focus on the more serious sounds. I mean bikers dug "Run" but they couldn't hang with much of the rest Jo Jo Gunne put out. Sure it rocked, but it was candy rock as opposed to the real gritty stuff."
