Triumph’s major label debut. Actually their first two albums are a bit confusing as they were combined into this one album when they were signed by MCA, at least that is the story as I know it. (Correct me if I am wrong, please.) In anycase, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Machine” is a classic 70′s heavy metal platter. By today’s standards I suppose this is nothing more than an old rock album. However in it’s time it was quite heavy. I don’t pretend to admit that “Rock and Roll Machine” was groundbreaking or even outstanding, however, it is a good listen from beginning to end. “Rocky Mountain Way” is a decent Joe Walsh cover, although not much different than the original version. I much prefer Triumph’s original material
