Digitally remastered edition of this 1979 solo album from the former Montrose and future Van Halen vocalist and Rock icon. Street Machine was completely controlled by Hagar in the songwriting and production areas, with his eyes firmly focused on the Hard Rock prize. Packed with knockout punches, the album showcases one of the worlds greatest showmen, whose voice and songwriting ability are captured in pristine clarity. From the anthemic lead track, 'Growing Pains', to rough and tumble guitar-fuelled rockers, such as 'Trans Am', 'Feels Like Love', 'Plain Jane', 'Straight To The Top' and 'This Planets On Fire (Burn In Hell)', the intention is loud and clear; the red rocker is taking no prisoners and laying down the law with all the fury of a man on a life or death mission. Also includes Sammy's original version of 'I've Done Everything For You', later covered by Rick Springfield. Rock Candy.
One Of Sammy Hagar's Best From His Early Years

"STREET MACHINE is one of Sammy Hagar's best albums from the early part of his career, blending such influences as Ted Nugent and the Outlaws, with many great songs to boot. The highlight of this CD is the cautionary "This Planet's On Fire (Burn In Hell)", but that doesn't take away from the power of such songs as the slashing rocker "Trans Am (Highway Wonderland)" and the sensitive midtempo number "Plain Jane." Hagar's advocacies of sanctions against Indonesia in retaliation for that country's trumped-up 2005 drug-smuggling conviction of a young Australian tourist, increased funding for law enforcement/community policing, and capital punishment or life without parole for kidnappers make STREET MACHINE an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience."
