Ice – The Ice Age – New LP
2020 Reissue of 1970 LP.
"The astoundingly great 50 year-old album The Ice Age by Indianapolis quintet ICE was never even released upon its completion. In 1970, the band recorded ten original songs at 8-Track Studios in Chicago, only to break up shortly thereafter. Two of the tracks were eventually released as a 45 in 1972, but confusingly under a different band name, Zukus! The 2-inch master tapes had been shelved and forgotten until recently. Finally, half a century later, this ten-song album of radio-ready rock will finally see light of day. The Ice Age is an exceptional archive of hard edged rock with serious pop hooks akin to something like Grand Funk Railroad meets The Move. It rocks hard, but is also interlaced with glorious melodic hooks. Had fate been less fickle, this album would’ve long been a classic rock radio staple. This album is truly an incredible and unprecedented find, particularly when everyonelthought the glorious history of rock’n’roll had long ago been written and sealed as complete."
