Credited to Argus, this album should have be titled as an “Argus” / “Anaconda” split album because it comprises material of two very different groups. The Anaconda output is even longer than the namesake Argus’! The only member these two bands have in common is the drummer, Dave Wagstaffe. The first band is Argus with material recorded in 1973, a typical 70s hard rock outfit. Heavy rock with powerful bass and drums and good guitar work. Sounds like “Humble Pie” (Smokin’ era), “Montrose” or “Socrates Drank the Conium”. Second band is Anaconda with “bonus” live material recorded in 1977, a jazz-rock outfit. The general direction of the band was inspired by fusion band “Return To Forever”. A really competent rhythm section, good guitar playing and a little persistent flute participation. Yet vocals may not be everyone’s cup of tea. A good recommendation is to listen the first 5 tracks (Argus) and the next 7 tracks (Anaconda) at seperate times.
