CD Reviews

Hard Rocking 70's Texas Band
Carl S. Manning | LaBelle, FL United States | 01/04/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this band with ZZ Top back in the late 70's as a opening act and they were very good. Hard Driving Rock, I bought the album back then and have been waiting on the release of the CD for years. Very good songs on this CD, you will not be dissappointed if you like ZZ Top as they have the same type sound with southern rock mixed in."
OK ,Southern Rock fans,check it out

"This is the first offering from a little known band from Texas that was actually part of ZZ Tops management team "Lone Wolf Productions". Why Point Blank didn't prosper I can only chalk up to bad timing. Disco, Punk was invading (punk I liked,Disco? I was it's worst enemy).

Even so this first album from Point Blank is full of killer songs. There are few singers that wipe me out. I like Paul Rogers and of course Steve Marriott is at the top of the list,but this guy John O'Daniel is outstanding. "Wandering" and "Distance" are great songs but also tunes where JOD can completely cut loose. I know they realesed more albums like "Second Season" that was great and "Roll With It" or something and "Airplay" that were not so great(I have both but never listen to them-they tried to be too '80s-I know,it was the '80s).

Edit here-I checked out Airplay again recently after reading favorable comments about this record here at amazon and "Penthouse Pauper" surprised the heck out of me. Outstanding! (I admit, I had just skipped through this album when I first got it.)

I wish could have read a Guitar Player magazine or something about this band. The tones are awesome(a little phase shifter thrown in here and there),unique (don't sound like Pauls and Marshalls; Firebirds, V's and Peaveys? Wish I knew) and smokin' any where one chooses to start. My faves? Free Man, Moving, Bad Bees and In This World totally rock but the kicker for me has always been Lone Star Fool (gotta plug in for this one). Check out this cd and see. Highly recommended."
The best savage southren boogie band from Texas

"I like southern rock music a lot and specificaly with the blues but this one have one thing in extra "the boogie" who push the music with a V8 motor This recording is magic If you need one PB recording this is the right one The other recordings have less energy This one is a killer and a must have like the first ABB Today we have Regulators and Southern Fury in the same type of southern boogie"
