Ted Nugent is the debut studio album by American hard rock musician Ted Nugent. The album was released in September 1975, by Epic Records. It was released after the disbanding of his former group The Amboy Dukes. Tired of The Amboy Dukes' lack of effort and discipline, Nugent decided he had enough and left the group. He took a three-month vacation (his first ever) clearing his head in the Colorado wilderness, spending his time deer hunting and enjoying the outdoors.

Free-For-All is the second solo album by American guitarist Ted Nugent and his first album to go platinum. As the recording of Free-For-All commenced, rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Derek St. Holmes left the band, citing growing personal and creative conflicts with Nugent. Two solid years of living together on the road had taken its toll on the relationship. Additionally, St. Holmes was unhappy with Tom Werman's production, saying that the producer was watering down the band's sound.

Free-For-All is the second solo release from American guitarist Ted Nugent and his first album to go platinum.

Free for all is the only song Ted sings. Lester from New York City, NyNugey's best album. Together, I Love You So I Told You A Lie, Hammerdown, and Writing On The Wall are tremendous tunes. Meatloaf's vocals are great. I can see why Nugent's big ego couldn't handle having Meatloaf around. Ted doesn't do any of those songs in concert because he can't sing them Why isn't he in the rock and roll hall of fame.

Never before have I turned on you Ya look too good to me Your beady eyes nearly cut me into And I just can't let ya be Well it's a free-for-all And I heard it said You can bet your life The stakes are high and so am I It's in the air toni-i-ight.
