Ted Nugent – Shut Up & Jam

Ted Nugent – Shut Up & Jam

Another huge thank you goes out to Superdekes for letting me hear his copy of this record!

I’m a bit of a Nugent Noob. Of course, I know the hits, like Cat Scratch Fever, but I’ve never owned a record of his. I couldn’t even tell you why – he’s just never crossed my path, I guess.

As such, I don’t know what it means, precisely, to have this (latest) record as my first introduction to to a full album by the man. All I can think is if he’s been making records for this many years and he still sounds like this, and given what I know of his biggest songs along the way, there can’t have been a whole lot of deviation for his approach, over all this time.

What I heard heard here was a balls-out, straight-ahead bluesy rock record. It’s built for stadiums, for getting your air guitar out and having a wail session in your living room, and for all kinds of fun!

I know he’s as notorious (if not moreso) for opening his mouth and talking about this, that, and the other thing, particularly politics. He seems unapologetic about all of it (title track) and fair enough. We’re all entitled to our opinions, whether people agree with us or not. I didn’t let it get in the way of my listening to the music on display here. Heck, even Sammy Hagar shows up for a track! It’s a rock-out party, pure and simple. And at this point in his career, that’s all it needs to be.

I had a great time listening to this record. Fun good times!

Thanks heaps, Deke!!
