Synopsis

Product Description
Theodore Anthony Nugent, also know as The Nuge, The Motor City Madman, or Uncle Ted, is best known as axe-grinding hard-rocking Ted Nugent. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Nugent began his professional music career fronting the Amboy Dukes, who scored a hit single in 1968 with 'Journey To The Center Of The Mind'. The Dukes didn t last, but Nugent s career did as he set out on a solo career in the mid-seventies. The last years of the seventies proved to be Nugent s pinnacle as a recording artist with the release of such hard-rock classics as 'Free-For-All' (1976), 'Cat Scratch Fever' (1977), 'Double Live Gonzo' (1978), and finally 'State Of Shock'(1979). 'State Of Shock' finds long-time Nugent producer Lew Futterman (Cat Scratch Fever, Free For All) manning the boards and bringing life to one last blast of seventies metal from The Nuge! In a year that had the soft-rock sounds of Fleetwood Mac and the last notes of Donna Summer-disco filling the airwaves, it s almost amazing that State Of Shock was able to reach #18 on the Billboard Albums Chart! Another American Beat Records hard-rock exclusive.

CD Reviews

An underrated album by Uncle Ted!
Rhino | Saint George, Ut United States | 08/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a Nuge fan, this album is a must-have. The song "Alone" is not something you'd expect from Ted Nugent, yet it's probably in my top five favorite Nuge songs of all time. The guitar solo in "Alone" is worth the price of the whole album. Another one of my favorites on the album is "Bite Down Hard." It's a guitar-riff driven number that I play over and over. Ted Nugent is the master at straight-ahead, guitar-driven rock and roll."
Terrible Ted Does It Again
The Footpath Cowboy | Kingston, NY United States | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With STATE OF SHOCK, Ted Nugent creates another masterpiece. The opener, "Paralyzed", is a great wah-wah heavy rocker, and many other hot ones are also here, including "It Doesn't Matter." People who think Ted Nugent was washed up by this point do not, in my view, have full constitutional rights, because this CD burns just as hot as each of the first four and shows that Charlie Huhn was an exceptional stand-in for Derek St. Holmes."
Personally, my favorite NUGENT album

"For me, I really like this album, I think everything came together well for Ted, especially Charlie Hunh, who sings alot of songs, on rockers It Don't Matter, Bite Down Hard and Saddle Sore, and the ballad Alone. Also Ted let's er rip on Paralyzed and State of Shock. A late-70's gem from Nugent, pick it up if you can."
