Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of this album by the Australian hard rockers. Street gang rock 'n' roll at it's most vibrant and intense. Rose Tattoo was perceived as the shockingly authentic voice of aggressive young Australia upon it's release in 1978. Charismatic vocalist Angry Anderson, backed by guitarists Mick Cocks and Pete Wells, delivers a string of raucous rock 'n' roll boogie songs. Produced by Vanda and Young - who also worked with stable mates AC/DC - this debut album impressed fans and critics alike, particularly in the UK during the New Wave of Heavy Metal era. It is packed with dynamic performances, with three singles - debut 'Bad Boy For Love', European hit 'Rock 'N 'Roll Outlaw' (#2 France / #5 Germany / #60 UK) and 'One Of The Boys' plus original tracks such as 'Nice Boys' (later covered by admirers Guns N Roses) and 'The Butcher And Fast Eddie', all topped by the vocal punch of front man Anderson, who later became a top Australian TV celebrity.
