Despite some line-up shake-ups, Ted returned after the one-two punch of his back-to-back most successful albums, Cat Scratch Fever and Double Live Gonzo!, with Weekend Warriors. As you can tell by the album cover art, the music contained within is unabashedly Ted, complete with bile-spitting vocals and rip roaring guitar work. The album was a success, it's hard to not be impressed by the sheer viciousness of such cuts as "Weekend Warrior", "Venom Soup" and "Need You Bad".
Import only remastered edition.
Issued in 1978, hot on the heels of the ground breaking live album Double Live Gonzo!, Nugent was out to take few prisoners but plenty of scalps. Weekend Warriors is an album that solidified Nugent’s reputation as not only one of the world’s greatest showmen but also one of the savviest songwriters around. Truly a hard rock classic.

Also includes a 4,000 word Interview with Ted written by Geoff Barton, Editor Classic Rock. Rock Candy. 1978.
