7 comments on “The Rationals – Guitar Army

  1. Interesting tune. Rationals were from Ann Arbor. Used to see them on the Upbeat Show – Scott Morgan was a white 16-year old Chuck Jackson type singer, very soulful. Iggy was a fan. CKLW powerful station from Windsor played them – also Frost, SRC, Amboy Dukes, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels, Rusty Day, Johnny Bee, Terry Knight & the Pack etc

  2. The single version of this, on Genesis, was pressed much hotter, providing a more sonically exciting listening experience, and is sans outro. Being from Detroit, I can say that these “outros” are probably what killed this album and certainly infuriated their fans. What were they thinking? After The Rats split, there wasthe wonderful Guardian Angel, with Scott & Terry & also included some of Savage Grace, and then of course Sonic’s Rendezvous Band, without a doubt one of the greatest fucking rock & roll bands ever.
