Legs Diamond are an awesome band and all their albums are excellent.
Thier 1st 2 albums "Legs Diamond" and "A Diamond Is A Hard Rock" were released in 1977 and still sound great. The 1st was produced by Derek Lawrence who had worked with Deep Purple. Legs cite Purple as one of their influences, and this does come through on some songs. Legs do not call themselves the American Deep Purple at all, that is just a comment that was made by a journalist for an English music weekly and some people keep using it.
From the 3 album "Fire Power" 1978 those Purple influences were less obvious.
The bands other albums are:
Out On Bail 1983 or 1984
Land Of The Gun 1984 or 1985
Town Bad Girl
Captured Live
The Wish

The last 3 were all 1990's but I can't remember any exact dates for the last 5 albums off the top of my head.

Where's John Watson ? The wprlds number 1 Legs Fan and expert. He'll tell you
anything about them. He's put together a fantastic book/fanzine with over 200 pages of info and pics.
