The 3/4 time Renegade cut is a standout. One of the wildest lp's the Dukes made. There is nothing silly or corny about this lp, unlike later solo lp's.

In 1974, the released the album Tooth Fang & Claw. At this point Nugent dropped The Amboy Dukes name and the band became The Ted Nugent Band and they were definitely a band and all of them wanted that and discussed it. None of them considered themselves as back up players, one of the conditions of St. Holmes joining them, was it was called a band. At this point, David Krebs of Leber & Krebs Management and this was a total surprise to the band and it was the beginning of the end.
Would author Jack London be appalled? A table set with freshly killed game on back of this 1974 release by the trio known as Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes has the guitar being edged out of the picture by a rifle while using London's famous book title as a handle for the music inside. Not as blistering as his Cat Scratch Fever, but more metallic than the psychedelia/blues of the original Amboy Dukes, the riff-jamming opening track of side two is more Jeff Beck gone rock than the quasi-Ozzie persona Nugent gleefully would embrace.

Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). I love the classic Amboy Dukes CDs. Some of the finest music to come out of the Motor City. Call Of The Wild is a great addition to my collection of Motor City Rock from the late 60's and early 70's. It is always fun listening to Uncle Ted's riffs. Nugent's second best album in my opinion, the best being his eponymous "debut", released in 1975. Published on August 18, 2008.
