The Pittsburgh, PA band, Diamond Reo, belted out some hard rock on three albums in the mid 70's. They also enjoyed touring with such bands such as Kiss, Aerosmith, Canned Heat, Kansas and Ted Nugent. They also appeared on American Bandstand.
Their first self-titled album included this bluesy, hard cover of the Smokey Robinson classic "Ain't That Peculiar", which made it to #44 in 1975.
But band couldn't land any commercial success of their own, despite recording their three albums on three separate labels. They disbanded in 1978.
There are a couple other hard rockin' tunes released as singles by the band. I occasionally play them at "OffTheCharts!"
