    01. Blue Water, White Death
    02. Life At 21

    Okay, what we have here is one of those uber-rare one-off items, which attracts interest from both NWoBHM and Punk fans alike.
    Next to nothing is known about the band behind it, UNDERDOG, aside from the fact that they appear to have nothing to do with the myriad of other bands who used that selfsame name.
    What we can say for sure, because of it's scarcity, is that it seems to have had a very low number of copies pressed.
    As a result of it's rarity, it's now a very highly prized collectors piece, and as such, it commands ridiculous money when it does occasionally crop up for sale.
    Side A, "Blue Water, White Death", is a 6:00 minute tour-de-force, and is very much in the NWoBHM mould.
    The great guitarwork is the highlight of the song for me, and overall this is pretty Heavy stuff for 1979.
    The flipside, "Life At 21", is less obviously influenced by Rock/Metal, with a catchy Punk/New Wave styled chorus being the obvious hook here.
    However, repeated plays reveal some accomplished musicianship behind the bluster, making me wonder if this song was an attempt at a bit of bandwagon jumping by some experienced old hands.
    Whatever the truth behind the band, you are unlikely to ever hold a copy of this record in your hands, so give it a d/l and hear it for yourself.
    It's a record that deserves to be better known, and unlike oh so many over-hyped big money rarities, this one actually has some worthwhile music in it's grooves.
