Yancy Derrniger - Openers (1975)

If you like that hard rockin' boogie sound from the mid 70's then Yancy Derringer is a must! If you're into bands like Stonehouse, Wizard, Blackfoot or The Godz then you will love this cd. Their great 1975 LP "Openers", another great Wisconsin band which featured outstanding guitars and keyboards and the 7 minute long "Weedburner" Here's what Keith Pettipas of had to say about Yancy Derringer:
Yancy Derringer was a four-piece band from Wisconsin that recorded an album titled Openers in 1975. With an original pressing of only 1,000 copies, the album reflected the band's live act and creative talents in seven original songs. The sound of Yancy Derringer was similar to that of some of the more hard-driven Southern rock acts of the day, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and many more. After selling out the initial 1,000 pressings very quickly, the band ordered a second pressing, which got caught up management hassles and was delayed. This caused fans to lose interest in the band, and by 1976, the group's momentum had passed. Yancy Derringer broke up, leaving the world with another limited-pressing album. In the late '90's, Gear Fab acquired the rights to the band's original masters and released that long lost album for fans of '70's rock to enjoy. With detailed band history and song information (as in all Gear Fab releases), Yancy Derringer can now take their place in the history of American rock music.
