But their 1974 studio album Tooth, Fang & Claw found Amboy Dukes driving toward the guitar-dominated stadium metal that transformed Nugent into The Nuge. The opening Lady Luck gets things going with the kind of red-hot guitar leads and chugging rhythm section that would seep into 1977's Cat Scratch Fever. Trace elements of '60s-flavored guitars surface in Living in the Woods, especially in Nugent’s doubled fuzz-toned leads. Long before he was bow-hunting, firearm-hoarding endangered species, Ted Nugent fronted the heavy acid-rock band Amboy Dukes. But their 1974 studio album Tooth, Fang & Claw found Amboy Dukes driving toward the guitar-dominated stadium metal that transformed Nugent into The Nuge.
As Ted Nugent's dominant persona took over the sound as well as the band name, Tooth, Fang & Claw brought his Amboy Dukes concept a step closer to the stadiums than its predecessor, Call of the Wild. The bandmembers don't get photos on the back this time, it's just Nugent being a madman up against some Fender and Marshall amps. Where his contemporaries from the '60s, the Blues Magoos, drifted from the psychedelic to jazz and blues before fizzling out, Nugent fused his blues base with hard rock, and found a stadium audience ready to devour it. Tooth, Fang & Claw shows those claws just starting to extend.
