Formed by teenage protegee Rick Derringer (who had scored a huge hit "Hang On Sloopy" in the 1960s), Derringer focussed on lean and mean riffs, punchy production and wide screen songs blessed with heavy and dark overtones.
Enlisting second guitarist Danny Johnson, bassist Kenny Aaronson and drummer Vinny Appice, the band quickly established themselves as contenders with a solid debut album, But it was their second record, 'Sweet Evil', that really put them on the map, Produced by Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Starz, Cheap Trick) and originally issued in 1977, the album is a veritable treasure trove of deeply moving heavy rock, with epically constructed tracks such as "Driving Sideways", "Sittin By The Pool", "One Eyed Jack" and the title track itself.
