about

First ever legit vinyl reissue of this impossible to find private psychedelic hard-rock album from 1973.
Remastered sound.

Charge were a British power-trio born from the ashes of local South Coast heavy-blues bands Baby Bertha and Sweet Poison. Comprised of Dave Ellis (guitar), Pete Gibbons (drums) and Ian Mclaughlin (bass), they played heavy rock influenced by Hendrix, Cream, Free, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, etc.

In 1973 they cut a demo album at SRT studios of which 99 copies in blank covers were pressed and later distributed between family & friends, with a few of them also shipped to record companies in what proved to be an unsuccessful attempt at earning a recording contract.

The music is raw hard-rock with unrestrained guitar, Lemmy-esque vocals and psych / heavy progressive touches.
Side B contains the epic anti-war suite “Child Of Nations”.

“One of the buried treasures of the early Seventies British psychedelic / progressive underground scene.”
– David Wells

“Ultra-rare heavy-rock LP
– (Galactic Ramble)
