Eccentric, elusive, multi talented, unique, unmistakable physically and musically.

JOHN McCOY is a gem of British Rock History who’s still rocking as hard as ever! At first glance this double album could be mistaken for a Rock Compilation with the long list of rock luminaries listed. It is in fact a long overdue tribute to the man who has not only influenced and inspired a whole generation of bass players, and seemingly a whole plethora of shaved heads and goatee beards (!) but has done so much more.

With in depth notes from McCoy himself and many unseen photographs this double album still only scratches the surface! Closer examination will reveal a fascinating insight into the long career of mega rock acts John
McCoy’s been involved with and throw up a few surprises too.

GILLAN, MAMMOTH, SAMSON, ZZEBRA, ATOMIC ROOSTER, SUN RED SUN, G.M.T. etc etc, are just the tip of this collection, suitably released to commemorate 10 years of Angel Air Records from their first release 'Think Hard Again' by McCOY (SJPCD001) back in 1997.
