Dwight Twilley Band - Shark 7" (Hozac Records)


Dwight Twilley is an American power pop icon from the pre-Ramones/Cheap Trick era that slipped though the cracks due to bad management decisions and the entanglements of the major label record business, that despite his debut single "I'm On Fire" hitting the top 20 on the Billboard charts in 1975, he's still unfortunately not a household name. Some called him the American T. Rex and others the missing link between Big Star and Tom Petty, but any way you cut it, Tulsa, OK's pop hero has risen he's and ready to knock you back to high school. He's appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand several times as well as the esteemed Don Kirschner's Rock Concert TV series the SAME NIGHT as the infamous Sex Pistols episode in 1977, therefore it never aired. This anxiously awaited 2nd single was shelved in the summer of 1975 due to close proximity to the super popular JAWS film, of which the management sadly decided it would be 'too cliche,' so we have rescued the track along with a scorching B-side from the CD-only 'Great Lost Twilley Album,' procuring two incredible hits never before available on vinyl. Pure pop perfection from the ealry 70s powerpop era that will light up your life and cap off your summer in the best way possible. – Victimoftime.com
