In the early ’70s. the band Montrose garnered plenty of love for the songs of their four peak-era albums that started with the self-titled Montrose (1973), and ended with Jump On It (1976). Sam Hagar was a member of the band for their first two albums. Eventually, due to stress, Montrose ended the band in 1976. Ronnie Montrose himself went on to release a solo album, Open Fire in 1978. The rest is, as they say, history.

On July 29, HNE Records (division of Cherry Red UK) will release a 6CD Box that will feature the four peak-era Montrose albums (Montrose, Paper Money, Warner Bros. Presents, Jump On It) along with a healthy collection of bonus tracks, demos, and two live radio sessions. Both of the radio sessions are for KSAN, one in April of 1973, and the other in December of 1974.

The 6CDs will be housed in a box.
