Warhorse “Red Sea” (Repertoire)

2020-03-27T02:29:17+00:00March 27th, 2020|

‘Red Sea’ was the second album from the excellent rock band, founded by ex-Deep Purple bassist Nick Simper. As with many original Vertigo releases, collectability and costs have been steadily increasing over the years, as its availability becomes rarer.

The album is a truly long lost classic. It features Pete Parks, formerly of Black August on lead guitar, having replaced Ged Peck. Originally released in 1972, it proved to be their final release for the label, as the band then underwent several personnel changes before finally breaking up.

Among the original seven LP tracks is a stunning version of the Shirley Bassey hit ‘I (Who Have Nothing)’, as well as the title song, and such surging rockers as ‘Back In Time’ and ‘Feeling Better’.

Cressida “Asylum” (Repertoire)

2019-05-31T19:21:16+00:00May 31st, 2019|

Another outstanding Prog Rock classic, originally released on Vertigo in 1971 and now available again on LP. Like the first album, originals of this one are also increasingly hard to find in mint condition, and have peaked over £1,000 at auctions.

‘Asylum’ has a striking cover artwork, very typical of the style of the day, and was Cressida’s second album of eight extended rock workouts, with Peter Jennings’ superb keyboard playing backed by John Culley on lead guitar, enhancing the lead vocals of Angus Cullen.

With extra percussion and orchestral accompaniment, Cressida’s sound has often been compared to their contemporaries, the Moody Blues.

Graham Bond Organization “There’s a Bond Between Us” (Repertoire)

2018-04-20T14:17:41+00:00April 20th, 2018|

The second studio album from the Organization has Graham adding Mellotron to his keyboards, making some of the performances sound very eerie. ‘Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Wolf?’ kicks off a 12-track blast of R&B with vocals from Jack and Graham powered up by Baker’s passionate drumming. The original LP is now boosted with the addition of 6 rare bonus tracks.

‘Walking In The Park’ and Baker’s ‘Camels And Elephants’ are among the highlights. Hear the sound of a group that paved the way for Cream, Colosseum and fusion rock.

Black Widow “III” (Repertoire)

2017-10-08T01:28:31+00:00October 8th, 2017|

These guys have sometimes been described as a Black Sabbath-like band, and the name Black Widow itself invites a comparison. Yet if that had any validity at the start of their career, by this, their third album, they really sounded more like solid mid-level British prog rockers than satanic hard rockers. This is really closer to early King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer territory than Black Sabbath, given their lengthy, shifting compositions; stress on forceful organ and vocal harmonies; substantial jazz, classical, hard guitar rock, and folk influences; and the color supplied by Clive Jones’ sax and flute.
