TDATS 23 is a colletion of music from Canada. [EDIT: There has since been two more, Vol58 and Vol92] After Troyka's rousing intro Thundermug are first up with one of their heaviest songs 'Bad Guy'. BTO are nice'n heavy with 'Not Fragile'. Steel River play fuzzy psych on 'Losing Friends' and Neil Merryweather is represented twice, with his bands Space Rangers and Ivar Avenue Reunion. It's tempting by their name to compare Warpig with Sabbath but I consider them in Deep Purple/Uriah Heep territory. Mahogany Rush display Frank Marino's guitar atmospherics. Walter Rossi was in the band 'Charlee' that I have used on Vol 5, his infectious riffing is back on 'Hey Serena'. Timo Laine was one of the first artists to use a polyphonic guitar synth and keyboardist David Stone went on to play for Rainbow. Their track 'Universe' is a slab of intriguing space prog with doomy overtones.
