Shape Of Things To Come - Max Frost And The Troopers

It's Wrong
Shape Of Things To Come
Max Frost And The Troopers
Tower Records ST 5147

Apparently a few of the tunes on this album can be found on CD compilations even though the album is obscure.

Max Frost And The Troopers was a fictional rock music group created for the exploitation film Wild In The Streets. The single "Shape Of Things To Come" was release from the soundtrack. It sold well enough to set the group into the studio to record this album. The music is preformed by a studio group with members who are believed to be Paul Wibier (lead vocals) and members of Davie Allan and The Arrows (who release the "Shape of Things to Come" without lyrics).

For a "studio group" and a follow-up effort, the music is tight and groovy.

As a side note, Les Baxter apparently penned incidental music along with Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann for the movie soundtrack.
