Background
'Ice Fire And Desire' is the sophomore release from American country rock outift 100% Whole Wheat. Their debut was released a year earlier in 1977, with membership of this band coming from assorted stints with Glen Campbell, Lindsey Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac, Liberace and even producer Bob Ezrin. Michael W Lewis, who joined for this second album (he is not credited on the 1977 debut) is also one half of the disco duo Lewis And Rinder, alongside vocalist Laurin Rinder. Debut members Bob Morphis (drums) and Mark Seamons (keyboards) do not appear on this album.


The Songs
The album is out there as vinyl only on Musicstack and Ebay. The 7' release from the LP 'Heart Of The Mountain' is also available on Pye International (UK). My research shows the LP was released by: Electrola/EMI (Germany) and AVI Records(USA).


In Summary
100% Whole Wheat play very good classic rock, with a dose of Eagles like country rock, but also throw in a few keyboards as well. Worth investigating.

I wish I'd had this info about 6 years back when I first wanted to review this classic album. This is truly a superior piece of 70's AOR which really isn't much like The Eagles at all. It's far more melodic and more in keeping with Firefall in my opinion.

Actually you're right Alun.. Firefall is a much better comparison. Hunting around for info the last few days, someone out there mentioned The Eagles, so it kinda stuck in the memory banks. I have this album as a 128kbps rip, now I'm after the first. I might try Soulseek, which I have resurrected, and happy to say, that despite all that is going on in blogspot land, is very much a busy community.

It would be one of many that people would want. I have most of what is reviewed here.. I might upload it, but my Internet monthly allowance is not great, and need all of it for my day job. Priorities really..

Understand George.Take your time.I'm referring only to obscurities and albums that have never seen the light of day on CD like this one for e.g.Clearly, do not expect of you to upload everything you own Pfft
