Classic Album Reviews
Sammy Hagar : All Night Long : 1978
(Released in the UK as Loud and Clear)

In this video, I talk about how this album crept out in the UK via Rock club charts first published in Sounds Music Magazine in 1978. I give a track by track analysis with my thoughts on the album at the time and what I feel Sammy Hagar should do next if he ever gets his hands on the tapes.

All Night Long was not released in the UK until 1979. At that time, a new title and cover were chosen. Additionally, a live version of Montrose’s “Space Station #5” was added to the end of the album.

“All Night Long had some energy man. I listened to that record just last year, and I couldn’t believe it. I’m going, ‘This guy’s jacked out of his brain!’ A lot of energy on that record. That’s a real live record, too, you know, there’s no fixing up, no overdubs, no nothing.” Sammy Hagar
