Survival Research present a reissue of Goliath's Hot Rock & Thunder, originally released in 1975. Never achieving the glory they deserved, Goliath was formed in Terre Haute, Indiana, as a psychedelic/prog offshoot of Sons of Sound, formed by rhythm section Bill and Steve Peters, with vocalist Jim Kitchen. Future Eagles manager Irv Azoff raised their profile, but guitarist David Graham succumbed to drugs; other members left to form Raven in 1974, so the band recruited guitarist Paul Bays and keyboardist Dave Wood to cut Hot Rock & Thunder for Ray Allen's Bridges label, blending hard rock, wistful prog, and country shades, with Bays and Wood defining melodic features. It's another lost gem, ripe for rediscovery.
