Product Notes

Limited five CD box. This release collects together music made across three short but prolific years, when the band Derringer released three studio albums plus two live albums. Rick Derringer first found fame aged just 17 in 1965, when his band The McCoys had a #1 hit in America with 'Hang On Sloopy', famously knocking The Beatles' 'Yesterday' off the top spot. Subsequently making significant appearances with Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter, as well as Steely Dan and Alice Cooper, and even squeezing in a solo hit with 1973's 'Rock 'N' Roll, Hoochie Koo', before deciding to put together his own band in 1976. Naming the band Derringer, the singer and guitarist was joined by bassist Kenny Aaronson, future Black Sabbath and Dio drummer, Vinny Appice, with the quartet completed by guitarist Danny Johnson. Going for a rockier, harder, less poppy sound than Rick's previous musical excursions, Derringer signed to Blue Sky Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, in 1976. This set includes the albums Derringer, Live In Cleveland, Sweet Evil, Derringer Live and If I Weren't So Romantic I'd Shoot You.
